Be Breast Aware
Know the signs and symptoms of breast cancer and pay attention to changes, lumps or abnormalities. They may not be due to cancer, but should be investigated as soon as possible.
What is the difference?
There are different types of breast cancer and breast conditions. Common types of breast cancer include ductal carcinoma that begins in the lining of the ducts or lobular carcinoma which occurs in the lobules (milk-producing glands).
Make Your Health a Priority
Early detection can save your life. Make breast self-awareness a part of your regular routine. See your provider for a clinical breast exam. Schedule your yearly mammogram.
Catch the Disease Early
If imaging shows an abnormality, your doctor will follow up with a series of tests to determine whether cancer is present. A biopsy is the only definitive way to make a cancer diagnosis.
Advanced Care Partners
Treatment plans depend on the type and stage of cancer. A multidisciplinary approach can consist of chemotherapy/endocrine therapy, radiation therapy, or surgery.
