October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month


The Breast Cancer Awareness Month, marked in countries across the world every October, helps to increase attention and support for the awareness, early detection and treatment as well as palliative care of this disease.

 

The Best Protection is Early Detection

All women can get breast cancer even those with no family history of the disease. Learn about breast cancer and take control of your breast health by following the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer screening guidelines:

Age 40 and over- Mammogram and clinical breast exam yearly

Age 20s and 30s- Clinical breast exam at least every 3 years

Starting in 20s- Choose whether or how often to do breast self-exam. Consult your doctor at the time of your clinical breast exam.

Call  your doctor’s office and  schedule an appointment today.
