National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Posted by neocaablogger on October 5, 2009

Every year, more than 211,000 American women and 1,700 American men are diagnosed with breast cancer. Scientists are continually searching for better ways of preventing, finding, and treating this disease. One thing is certain—early detection can save lives! Screening for breast cancer includes self-exams, clinical breast exams, and mammograms. Speak with your doctor to find out when you should begin having mammograms.

Visit the National Cancer Institute for more information about breast cancer, including risk factors, diagnosis, treatment, reconstruction, support, and more.
