October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of screening and the early detection of breast cancer. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point during her life. After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women.
The good news? While breast cancer can’t be prevented, many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. All women should learn how to perform a self-breast exam and talk to your health care provider about changes or abnormalities. A mammogram – which is an x-ray that allows a specialist to look for changes in breast tissue – can help find breast cancer early.
Make a difference! At age 40 talk to your doctor about when you should start having mammograms and how often and encourage your friends and family to do the same!
