I’m sure most of you have noticed from Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social media sites, October is breast cancer awareness month. I’m also almost sure that everyone reading this knows at least one person who has been affected by it.
The world over, women (and some men) run/walk/jog raising money for breast cancer and promoting awareness. Recently, someone very close to my heart was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is a vivacious, fun, energetic and bubbly woman who I know is going to kick cancer’s ass!!
Women, please examine your breasts regularly. If something doesn’t feel right, don’t put off getting it checked because life gets busy. Take a day off work, take someone with you and go to a doctor. Here are some of the signs you should be looking out for:
Breast cancer is the most common invasive female cancer in the world. Although the majority of breast cancers are not hereditary, genetics do play a role. Other causes are age, dense breast tissue, radiation exposure, estrogen exposure and obesity.
A few months ago I mentioned prostate cancer on a post and urged women to get their men talking and get checked. This time I’m urging all the men to get their women talking and if your woman is stubborn then check her yourself 😉
To everyone out there battling breast cancer, this is dedicated to you xx
