National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Mayfield physicians and associates are recognizing National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) by wearing pink every Tuesday in October. These special "out-of-uniform" days are a visual reminder for us and others to promote the importance of early detection of breast cancer.
What can you do?
- Schedule a mammogram and remind friends and family members to do the same. The American Cancer Society recommends yearly mammograms starting at age 40.
- Remember the importance of monthly self breast exams. Women and men should know how their breasts normally feel and report any breast change promptly to their health care providers.
- Learn more! There is a wealth of information available on the web. Here are a few sites to help get you started.
