National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Started in 1985, the goal of NBCAM is to promote mammography and raise awareness of breast cancer symptoms for early detection. Roughly 1 in 8 women in the United States will get breast cancer during their life.

Most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early which is why mammography is so important. This month is an opportunity to spread the word about the signs, symptoms and screenings available for breast cancer.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services provides a wealth of information about breast cancer. Including:

            Mammograms: Questions for the doctor

            Get Tested for Breast Cancer

            Talk with a Doctor If Breast or Ovarian Cancer Runs in Your Family

            Male Breast Cancer Treatment (PDQ®)–Patient Version
