Breast Cancer Awareness

This month is dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. At Tucson Medical Weight Loss, we want to be sure to spread the word and encourage the community to help in promoting the steps women can take to detect breast cancer early. According to the American Cancer Society®, “early detection” can often find cancer before it starts to cause symptoms.

 

Screening is a good example of this as it refers to tests and exams used to find a disease, such as cancer, in people who do not have any symptoms. Women can also perform breast self-exams at least once a month.

 

It is also important to add the right foods to your diets, which can lower the risk for breast cancer in addition to regular exercise. Having a healthy lifestyle is not only important to our overall health, but also aids in fighting off diseases such as cancer.

 

Breast Cancer Awareness is such an important topic and most of us can relate to this cause, having known someone affected by the disease. So please help us in raising awareness this month and encourage those around you to do the same.
