October Is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

By October 15, 2013May 13th, 2020Patient Resources


 The best way to fight breast cancer is detect it in its early stages.   When breast cancer is detected early (in the localized stage) the 5-year survival rate is 98%.  The National Breast Cancer Foundation’s Early Detection Plan (EDP) enables you to be an advocate for your own health by reminding you to perform routine breast self-exams and to schedule annual mammograms and clinical breast exams.

 iTunes has developed the Early Detection Plan app that helps you manage your exam dates as well as view your exam history. Not only is it a great way to keep track of your schedule, but it’s an amazing educational tool that describes breast cancer symptoms, risk factors, and how to correctly perform a breast self–exam.  Pain is not normally a symptom of breast cancer so it’s important to stay on top of your clinical exams.
