October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. Join in the cause to help women in need today.

Breast Cancer is the most common cancer among American women. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms.

What Are The Symptoms?

There are different symptoms of breast cancer, and some people have no symptoms at all. Symptoms can include:

  • Any change in the size or the shape of the breast.

  • Pain in any area of the breast.

  • A new lump in the breast or underarm.

If you have any signs that worry you, see your doctor right away.
