October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Join us this month as we honor breast cancer patients, their families, survivors, caregivers, clinicians, and support team.
Other than skin cancer, 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.
Know Your Risk
Knowing your family history is lifesaving. Talk to a doctor about your family history and see how that history impacts your risk of breast cancer.
