October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know that breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women? About 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will get breast cancer at some point in their lives.

The good news is that when breast cancer is found and treated early, most women survive. If you are a woman age 40 or older, talk to your health care provider about when and how often you should get screened for breast cancer. Regular mammograms and examinations by your health care provider can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.

This month, help spread the word about preventing breast cancer! Learn more here.
