Breast Cancer Awareness Month

In case you didn’t know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We want to remind you of the importance of self-examination, as well as getting your yearly mammogram for early breast cancer detection. The goal is to find cancers before they start to cause symptoms. Breast cancers that are found because they are causing symptoms tend to be larger and are more likely to have already spread beyond the breast. Early detection tests for breast cancer save thousands of lives each year, and that many more lives could be saved if even more women and their health care providers took advantage of these tests. Following the American Cancer Society’s guidelines for the early detection of breast cancer improves the chances that breast cancer can be diagnosed at an early stage and treated successfully.
