Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast cancer has been a huge part of my life. Not because I was diagnosed, but because my mother is a breast cancer survivor of twenty years. October is breast cancer awareness month so I thought it only fitting to share a few reminders about checking yourself for any signs and symptoms.

Here are some things you can do to prevent the risk of breast cancer:

  • Stay active
  • Don’t smoke
  • Eat properly
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Limit your alcohol consumption
  • Breastfeed if possible
  • Get to know your normal breasts so you know what something abnormal might feel like
  • Do a self-breast examination on yourself monthly- lean over, lay back and examine all parts of your breast
  • Talk to your doctor about what age you should start getting mammograms
