About one in eight women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, and it’s estimated that more than 2,550 men will develop the disease in 2018. There is still no known cure for breast cancer, but medical professionals, survivors, and advocates are fighting to change that. Learn more about Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and discover how you can get involved.
Experts recommend that both men and women perform a breast self-examination (BSE) at least once a month. Early detection is the best defense against breast cancer, and breast self-examinations are a great way to monitor changes in your body. Aside from performing a BSE regularly, you should research your family history to understand your risks. According to breastcancer.org, a woman’s risk of breast cancer doubles if she has a first-degree relative who has been diagnosed with the disease.
A great way to contribute to breast cancer research is to sign up for a local fun run or charity walk! No matter where you live, there are events near you highlighting breast cancer awareness and working to find a cure. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, exercise boosts the immune system and helps you to maintain a healthy weight. Not only will participating in a fun run allow you to contribute to the cause, but you can also drastically reduce the risk of developing breast cancer.
