October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women in the United States. Breast cancer can occur in both men and women. Every October we unite to raise the awareness of this complex disease. It is very important to detect BC as early as possible. There are several steps to detect Breast cancer:

  • Visit your doctor on a regular basis once a year.
  • Mammogram can be used to look for early signs. It is a low level X-ray image of breasts, that picks up breast cancer tumors. Women over 50 should get a mammogram every two years.
  • It’s essential to know your family’s medical history. If you are at risk, the monitoring has to be more careful. Be sure to communicate with your doctor about any concerns that may exist.
  • Self-exam. This will help you to become more aware of any potential warning signs.

Breast cancer survival rates have increased, and the number of deaths associated with this disease is steadily declining, largely due to factors such as earlier detection, a new personalized approach to treatment and a better understanding of the disease.
