October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but it’s important for us women to think about it and support our fellow women year round. When we have the knowledge, we have the power. And we can handle anything.

 

Breast Cancer Risk

Who’s at risk for breast cancer? Risk factors for breast cancer include being a woman and aging. There are a few risk factors like these that are out of our control. Some women are at a higher risk due to factors like family history or inherited genes. That’s why we should all be aware of our risk and perform self-exams monthly, as well as keep up with our mammograms and doctor-recommended screenings.
