Breast Cancer Awareness Month

By: Kaden Smith

As we all know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a time to reflect on those affected and educate ourselves on ways we can prevent this disease. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. And a report showed that in 2018 alone 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed. These statistics are concerning but there are steps you can take to lessen your risk of getting breast cancer. Changing habits in lifestyle is a big factor in lowering the risk of getting breast cancer. Things such as limiting alcohol consumption, not smoking and being physically active all can benefit you. The most important thing however, is getting regular check ups with a doctor. Early detection could boost chances of survival by 25%. Breast cancer is a scary topic but these little changes can possibly help you avoid it.
