Breast Cancer Awareness: Take Control of your Health

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While the words “breast cancer” are very scary, it’s important to know that it’s normal for your breasts to change throughout your life, and not every lump is necessarily cancer.

That’s why it’s so important to do self-exams regularly, and be aware of your body and its changes-- so you can get any abnormality checked by a doctor, ASAP. If you’re a woman of 40, you should talk to your doctor about scheduling a mammogram to detect any lumps that you may not be able to feel on your own.
