October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to researchers, breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. In the United States, about 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer at some point in their life. The good news is that many women will survive breast cancer if it is found and treated early. Prevention is one of the best defense. A mammogram is the screening test for breast cancer. It can help find breast cancer early when detected. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is one way to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Also, the library has various resources available on breast cancer.
