OCTOBER is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
For our patients that get mammograms in October, you’ll receive a Breast Cancer gift bag with a manicure set, socks, lip balm, and a compact mirror. If you’re due for a mammogram, ask your provider for an order and we’ll get you scheduled!
1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. In 2023, an estimated 297,790 women and 2,800 men will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. Chances are, you know at least one person who has been personally affected by breast cancer.
But there is hope. When caught in its earliest, localized stages, the 5-year relative survival rate is 99%. Advances in early detection and treatment methods have significantly increased breast cancer survival rates in recent years, and there are currently over 3.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
