According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each year in the United states approximately 42,000 women and 510 men die from breast cancer.

Black women have a higher rate of death from breast cancer than White women.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the focus is on screening, access, treatment, support and hope.

Dr. Lori L. Wilson, a cancer surgeon and researcher and Dr. Harrison, a general surgeon and breast cancer surgeon join Claudette Lindsay-Habermann for 'Health Talk'.
