For the month of October, I will be posting a fact about breast cancer and breast health to help raise awareness about the disease and how to help prevent it. So without further adieu, here is the fact of the day.
FACT: Breast self awareness is crucial. Women need to know how their breasts look, feel and hang in a healthy state so a doctor can be notified if there is a lump, bump or abnormal nipple discharge is detected. No matter how large or small the breasts may be, self examination and awareness is important.
Breast self examination can be done right out of the shower in a mirror and it takes less than 5 minutes. (video on how to coming soon)
***1 in 8 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime so being aware of the natural, healthy state of the breasts can help with detecting early stages of breast cancer.***
