ST. PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- This is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Education on prevention, earlier detection and better treatment options have all helped the five-year survival rate for breast cancer climb to around 98-percent.

Matt Schafer of the American Cancer Society in Minnesota says more improvements are expected as more women are able to access affordable health care and get in for regular checkups and treatment if they need it.

Enrollment under the state's health care marketplace MNsure is now under way, with the policies to take effect January 1st.
