October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer is a disease in which cells in the breast grow out of control. You should have regular checks on your breasts for any warning signs and symptoms. It is the second most common type of cancer among women in the United States. A Mammogram every 1-2 years is recommended for women starting as early as age 40. If you want to learn more about mammography screening, please attend NEMS Health Education Workshop.
