October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, early detection is the best protection. Join in with Brookshire’s in the fight against breast cancer. Treasure your chest by following 3 simple steps in early detection.
Step 1: Mammograms- yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health.
Step 2: Clinical Breast Exam- Clinical breast exams by your doctor or nurse should be part of a periodic health exam about every three years for women in their 20’s and 30’s and every year for women 40 and older.
Step 3: Breast Self Awareness- Women should know how their breast normally feel and report any breast change promptly to their doctor or nurse. Breast self-exam is an option for women starting in their 20’s.
YOU ARE THE CURE by making sure you and your loved ones do these 3 things:
1. Monthly self exam – age 20+
2. Annual Mammogram- age 40+
3. Annual clinical exam- age 40+
( Every 3 years- age 20-39)
So THINK PINK, and help us with the fight against breast cancer. Remember, TOGETHER WE ARE THERE.
