Flushing, NY, October 11, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Health Professionals NYC, a Leading Combined Urgent Medical Care and Dental Pros Center in Astoria, Queens, commemorates the arrival of October Breast Cancer Awareness Month and is helping spread the word about various ways to lower the risk of getting the terrible disease.
It is estimated that around $8 billion is spent in the United States each year on breast cancer related treatment. According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 220,000 women and 2000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Even though the rate of cancer diagnoses has increased over the years, there has been a steady decline in cases of death since the early 1990’s. Breast cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in women in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer related death in women.
While it is not clear as to what causes breast cancer, there are ways to reduce your risk of diagnosis. First of all, it is recommended that women over the age of 40 have an annual mammogram to screen for the development of cancer cells. According to the Cancer Society of America, some ways to help lower risk include avoiding weight gain and obesity, working out regularly and lowering alcohol usage.
“Breast cancer is a disease that affects all of us in many different ways and we all have to do our part in combating it. We at Health Professionals NYC are proud to support October Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While we do not offer screenings for breast cancer, we are the only facility of our type in New York to offer lung molecular and genomic screenings right here in our office,” said Emanuel Inoyatov, Chief Operating Officer at Health Professionals NYC.
Health Professionals NYC is a unique facility combining the best features of an urgent medical clinic and a top-notch dental practice, accepting most insurances. It is a one-stop-shop for care, serving the needs of the NYC community with professionalism, speed and respect.
On the clinical side, Health Professionals NYC offers fast and affordable medical and dental care with no emergency room wait. With average wait times in NYC emergency rooms getting more obscene by the day, more New Yorkers are looking to urgent care clinics, who can provide care on the clinical level of a hospital but in a more much more timely and cost-effective manner.
