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:
Nipple discharge, in a non-pregnant women, is often a sign of something that may no be as serious as you think. There is no reason initially to hit the “panic” button.
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.
The battle continues on the reccomendations for the guidelines for breast cancer screening. Recently two groups placed importance for the age 40 for breast cancer screenings for those who are high-risk patients. Also recommended are imaging evaluation of mammography, MRI and ultrasound.
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.
