As many of us step into the fall season we must take the time to recognize a very serious diagnosis. October is widely viewed as breast cancer awareness month. More than 200,000 cases are reported a year and sadly these numbers are only increasing. Although the diagnosis can be treated by a medical professional, the treatments are often a tough process. Getting tested is the best thing to do if you suspect any change in your body it is never too soon to be tested women between the ages 30-60 are being diagnosed every day. You are also able to complete self breast exams or make an appointment at your doctor’s office for a mammogram. Changes or symptoms to look for include a lump in the breast, bloody discharge from the nipple, and changes in the shape or texture of the nipple or breast. Breast cancer can be treated although most effective when caught in the early stages of the diagnosis. These treatments may consist of chemotherapy, radiation, and/or surgery.
