October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Think breast cancer awareness.
Some good habits that keep you healthy that have the added benefit of lowering your risk of breast cancer include:
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Getting a daily dose of physical activity
- Limiting alcohol consumption to less than one drink per day
The good news is that most changes in the breast or not cancer. In fact, most abnormal results from mammograms are also not related to cancer.
- Be aware of changes in your breast and share this information with your physician or other healthcare professional
- Know your family history of breast cancer - you and your physician can use this information to see how watchful an approach to take
