Early Detection Saves Lives
EARLY DETECTION SAVES LIVES
Have you had your annual exam this year yet? Are you doing regular self checks?
Being aware of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, and of your own health, is the key to early detection. Early detection is vital to ensure the best possible outcome of treatment should you or any of your loved ones ever be diagnosed.
In fact, when breast cancer is detected in the earliest stage, the 5-year survival rate is 98%. The best plan of action to ensure early detection is to give yourself regular breast exams, contact your doctor should you discover any abnormalities, stay on top of your annual health exams and have mammograms done as often as recommended by your primary care physician.
Raising awareness is also a key to prevention and early detection. Give your friends and family the gift of sharing this message. Encourage your loved ones to get checked.
Be aware...and then care enough to share.
