National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant cells form in the tissues of the breast. Research estimates that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer during her life. It is important to know that men can be diagnosed with breast cancer as well, although only 1% of breast cancer patients are male. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.
If localized breast cancer is detected early, the five-year survival rate is 100%! That is why an early detection plan is important. See your doctor regularly, and conduct monthly breast exams so you can watch for symptoms that include:
- Nipple tenderness, or a lump or thickening in or near the breast or underarm area
- A change in the skin texture or an enlargement of pores in the skin of the breast (some describe this as similar to an orange peel’s texture)
- A lump in the breast
