Welcome cool air and long nights!!!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Many of the symptoms of breast cancer are invisible and not noticeable without a professional screening like a mammogram or ultrasound. There are other symptoms, however, that can be felt or observed when you are being proactive about your breast health. This guide will help you know what to look for and help you take note of the important information to share with your healthcare provider to guide him or her in their professional evaluation of your breast health and required screenings.
Breast self-awareness can help you become familiar with how your breasts normally look and feel.
Knowing this will help you identify any changes in your breasts that should be reported to your health care professional promptly. If you find a lump, schedule an appointment with your doctor, but don’t panic – not all lumps are cancer.
Changes to look for include:
• A lump or thickening in or near the breast or in the underarm area
• A change in the size or shape of the breast
• Dimpling or puckering in the skin of the breast
• A nipple turned inward into the breast
• Discharge (fluid) from the nipple
• Scaly, red, or swollen skin on the breast, nipple, or areola (the dark area of skin at the center of the breast)
Thank You all for Your hard work!
Look at Billy Bob learning how to use 2 monitor screens!
