If you follow our blog then you would be aware that this month is Pink Ribbon month, which is a campaign that is all about raising awareness of breast cancer and teaching people about early detection and how they can reduce their risk of developing the disease.
Early detection of breast cancer is extremely important as women who are diagnosed at an earlier stage of the disease generally have higher survival rates than those with more advanced breast cancer.
So what should you be looking out for? According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation website the following could be early signs of breast cancer:
Visit your doctor if you notice anything that you’re suspicious of, and if you’re aged 50 to 69 then you are advised to go for a breast cancer scan every 2 years at one of the 500 BreastScreen locations across Australia.
Now that you know what to look out for, it’s important to also know what you can do to help reduce your breast cancer risk.
Unfortunately age and family history can be risk factors for developing the disease, but there are other risk factors related to lifestyle choices. According to Cancer Australia the following are risk factors:
Professionals Arbee Real Estate are committed to supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation in their mission to find a cure for breast cancer, but until a cure can be found it’s just as important that people are aware of what can be done to help prevent and detect breast cancer.
We hope that anyone who reads this will take the time to learn about their risks and to check for any changes in their breasts.
