As you know October 1 marks the beginning of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an opportunity to promote screening and early detection of breast cancer.
Roughly 1 in 8 women in the United States will get breast cancer. Next to skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women. Mammograms can help find breast cancer early when there is the best chance for treatment. I especially know this because a mammogram saved my aunt’s life.
