A new study published in the journal Cancer says that screenings should begin as early as possible, as young as age 25. Genetic mutations BRCA1 and BRCA2 are the focus of a potential problem that may occur later in life.

Daughters of women who took the synthetic estrogen drug DES are at a high risk factor for breast cancer, also even other cancers and problems, reported in the new study. In 1971 the DES drug was discontinued, the ones affected by the drug are at a risk of having up to 12 diseases, reported by the New English Journal of Medicine.

Andres Nugent a participant of the Miami seaquarium annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month observances, was quoted saying, "It's breathtaking. I mean there are no words to express this wonderful event that they provided for us here today. It's something I've wanted to do my entire life and just couldn't afford." Andrea described how incredible the event was and how much she enjoyed it, also pointed out it was something she wanted to do her entire life, "Be a participant at a Breast Cancer Event".
