Breast Cancer Awareness Month
It’s October and BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH!
Education and Early Detection are the Best Preventions.
- The combination of mammography, regular breast exams by your health care professional, and awareness of changes in your breasts may be the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is more easily treated.
- Women who are not at high risk of breast cancer should start breast cancer screening at age 40. Women at higher risk may be screened before age 40. Talk to your primary care provider about when to start screenings.
- Men get breast cancer too!
