October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but women need to be vigilant about their breast health all year long. Although breast cancer is a significant risk—one in eight women will get it –early detection saves lives. A cornerstone of breast cancer detection is monthly breast self-exams. By checking your own breasts each month for lumps, you can increase your chances of getting diagnosed early if cancer does occur. If you’re not sure how to perform an exam, ask your doctor for advice. Learn more about breast cancer in this Infographic from Urology Associates, P.C.
