Breast Cancer Awareness comes every October…but that doesn’t diminish the importance of being aware of breast cancer. The following are important reminders in Women’s Health:
Every year October is designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink ribbons can be found on anything and everything. Recently I have been wondering, after watching clips and seeing family members from my uncle’s dog to a long lost cousin sport a pink ribbon, that it may be too much.
Age and relevance continues to dominate the argument of mammography. Mammograms are a key way to diagnosis breast cancer. Mammograms have been a consistent topic in “Facts about Breast Cancer”. Mammograms have been an important theme and has been promoted during Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Saturday October 24th in Egypt saw a run for breast cancer sponsored by Susan G. Koman. Hundreds and thousands of individuals participated in the event near the Great Pyramids at Giza.
A breast exam done by a medical provider is helpful and extremely important but in some cases it can be done too infrequently. A self breast exam is important and should be considered as such – but it considered optional.
Each year for the past 25 years another important event has occured in October. This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month also called NBCAM.
