October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The American Cancer Society helps to fight breast cancer by promoting early testing, discussing treatment options and coping with diagnosis.
The earlier breast cancer is diagnosed the better your chances are for successful recovery. Signs to monitor for include: an unusual lump in breast, swelling in breast or armpit, orange peel type skin on breast, pain and nipple discharge.

The American Cancer Society recommends annual breast cancer screening with mammograms at age 45. The link for the American Cancer Society and breast cancer is below for further information. If you have any questions or concerns or need to make an appointment for mammogram please contact your primary care provider.
