Breast Cancer Awareness Month
01/10/2021 - 31/10/2021
What is Breast Cancer Awareness Month?
Breast cancer is scary, but many women don’t take the time to get checked.
The good news is that there are things you can do to reduce your risk of getting breast cancer. During October every year, thousands of people across the country take part in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by wearing pink ribbons or hosting events and fundraisers.
Get yourself checked for breast cancer during October every year!
Early signs of breast cancer can be a lump in your chest, painful or itchy breasts, and even an unusual discharge from one nipple. This is something you should talk to your doctor about because they will most likely perform manual exams as well as sending out for mammograms which are painless and only take about ten minutes total.
When is Breast Cancer Awareness Month?
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is throughout October every year.
