Be Strong and Fight on!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world today, but it is also said to have one of the highest survival rates. Being aware of your body can help eliminate or manage breast cancer risk. 
Women can detect breast cancer through self-checks (at least once a month a few days after the period ends) or clinical exams (e.g. mammograms, ultrasounds, MRIs...). Clinical recommendations vary by age and risk, which means that each woman must weigh the evidence and make her own decisions based on her known risk factors, values and preferences.

If you are 40 – 44:                                                                                                                      
You can choose to begin yearly mammograms.  It is important to talk to a doctor about the risk and benefits of mammograms at these ages.

If you are 45 – 54:
Mammograms are recommended every year.

If you are 55 or over:
Mammograms are recommended every other year. You can choose to continue to have them every year.

Although we have been able to diagnose and treat breast cancer, the best thing to do is to try to reduce the risk. Here are some tips:

Keep your weight in check
  • Be physically active
  • Eat healthy (more fruits and vegetables, less alcohol)
  • Don't smoke
  • Breast-feed if possible
  • Limit the dose and duration of post-menopausal hormones
  • Find out your family history
  • Avoid exposure to radiation and environmental pollution
