As many of you may know, the month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is a time of the year with a detailed focus on breast cancer and the promotion of prevention and early detection, as well as a memorial for those who have lost the fight to this terrible disease and their loved ones who have suffered because of it. There are many ways that you can be a part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month yourself, from monetary donations or participation in fundraisers that are put on for breast cancer awareness, to something as simple as wearing a pink ribbon pin or just the color pink in general.
The pink ribbon symbol is one that has become synonymous with breast cancer awareness, and has been seen all over the media world. From professional athletes sporting pink socks and gloves, to the placement of the ribbon in the corner logo on television stations, this symbol of awareness is one we all recognize as a sign of hope and remembrance.
Thanks to the success of breast cancer awareness campaigns, doctors and researchers are gaining a wealth of knowledge in the science behind the development of breast cancer. This knowledge could be a key factor in understanding what we need to do in order to develop the most effective prevention techniques and, hopefully, one day find a cure. For most women, some basic lifestyle changes can result in a more effective approach at breast cancer prevention.
Some common methods of prevention and early detection are:
- Improving the quality of your diet.
- Regular Exercise.
- Weight reduction in overweight women.
- Regular mammograms (consult Physician for recommended frequency).
- Performing regular self-check's for lumps in the breast tissue.
Take some time out of your day to learn more about breast cancer, so that you can take every measure to decrease the likelihood that this disease will affect you or any of your loved ones.
