Make Health A Priority: Howard Stern's Wife Beth Urges People To Get Mammograms After Her Breast Cancer Scare

Date October 15, 2019

Beth Ostrosky Stern, wife of radio icon Howard Stern, is urging women to get breast-cancer screenings following a recent health scare.

Beth's breast tumor

The 47-year-old woman's Instagram page is filled with pics of all of the kittens the animal lover is fostering. But on September 3, Beth interrupted the usual kitty cuteness with a very important message about breast cancer.

"I went in for an annual mammogram 6 months ago and they found 1/2 inch growth that needed to be rechecked in 6 months.,"

- wrote the Southampton animal-rights activist.

Thankfully, the growth did not increase in size and appeared to be just a Fibroadenoma, which is a noncancerous breast tumor.

She used a sexy bikini photo to attract people's attention so that as many as possible read how yearly mammograms are important for women.

Beth also revealed in the post that she was even more troubled by the findings within her body after supporting a “very dear friend” who recently had a double mastectomy.

The woman concluded:

“I just want to tell all of you amazing women out there..get your yearly mammograms. Not a cute kitten post but a little dose of reality and i think you are all important and worthy and want you to be here as long as you can… love you all."

Mammograms save lives

Mammograms are really life-saving as they can detect cancer early — when most treatable — long before it can be felt. This improves the odds of survival and can help avoid more extensive treatment.

If you still doubt whether to do it or not just think of the fact that since mammograms were introduced in the U.S. in the 1980s, there have been 40 percent fewer deaths from breast cancer among women!

We can't be happier to hear that Beth is doing great now and her fears gone! Hopefully, her message will encourage more people to go outside and get checked!

We all deserve to be happy and live a long and healthy life.
