Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women in the United States. Maryland has the sixth highest death rate for breast cancer, with an estimated 5,250 women diagnosed just this past year. This October, honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Wigs and Hair Solutions. Discover the steps you can take to raise awareness during this time.
Perform a Self-Exam
The chances of surviving breast cancer are increased by early detection. Ensure that you visit your doctor regularly, and take the time to perform breast exams. Not every cancer can be found through self-exam, but it’s a critical step you can take for yourself. The National Breast Cancer Foundation offers tutorials and tips for performing an exam successfully.
If you don’t already know your family history, it’s time to share it with your doctor. It’s important to know your risk for breast cancer. Do you have any habits that you need to change? Making minor adjustments to your lifestyle can decrease your chances of developing breast cancer.
The month of October offers a variety of opportunities for you to become involved in the fight against breast cancer. Contribute $50 to a local charity, participate in a fun run, and lend your support for a friend in a need. Any amount of support helps to end the fight against breast cancer.
