October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About one in eight women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.
A mammogram can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer.
