October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in American women.
The Good News –
- When detected early, breast cancer has a high survival rate.
- You can take steps to help prevent breast cancer.
** Talk to your doctor about your risk factors, prevention advice, and screening recommendations for early detection.**
Some Recommendations for Prevention and Early Detection from the American Cancer Association –
- Self-breast exams (http://www.cancer.org/cancer/breastcancer/moreinformation/breastcancerearlydetection/breast-cancer-early-detection-acs-recs-bse)
- Annual mammogram
- Healthy Diet
- Healthy Weight
- Regular Exercise
- Avoid Smoking
- Minimize Alcohol Consumption
The thought of screening mammograms, needle-guided breast biopsies, or possibility of breast cancer can be very stressful and even overwhelming for some. You are not alone! Ask your doctor about supportive therapies for stress relief and cancer treatment.
