Early Detection is the Best Way to Fight Breast Cancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to equip people with the information and resources they need to spread awareness within their own family and circle of friends. It’s a time dedicated toward helping people understand how prominent breast cancer is and what can be done to help prevent, diagnose, and treat the disease.

What can we, as a community, do to fight breast cancer and bring more awareness to the cause?

In 2018, an estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 63,960 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.

Our goal at Hutchinson Health is to encourage self-exams, screenings, and mammograms to aid in early detection. Together, we can make progress and lead a strong fight against this disease.
