Breast Cancer Awareness
This October, we are raising awareness for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is when malignant cells form in the breast tissue. The exact cause of breast cancer is not known. This month we want to raise awareness for early detection, possible causes, and treatment.
Most breast cancer symptoms are visible signs but still need professional screening for a diagnosis. Some early/visible symptoms include a lump on the breast, nipple discoloration, or nipple discharge. If you detect any of these symptoms, we suggest you seek healthcare professional.
To date, the cause of breast cancer is still unknown. There might be genetic factors that come into play. The TNM (tumor, lymph node, metastasis) system helps health professionals figure out the breast cancer stage of each individual. Generally, there are five types of treatments. It often includes a combination of chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, and targeted therapies.
Join us this October to raise awareness and support breast cancer patients and survivors.
