October is Breast cancer Awareness Month. A perfect time to keep in mind breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States and the second leading cause of cancer deaths. All reasons why it’s a good idea for you or a loved one to get screened.
Getting regular mammograms is the best way to lower your risk of dying from the disease. Screening tests can find breast cancer early, when it’s most treatable.
