Breast cancer does not discriminate. While in the past breast cancer was most commonly found in women 50 and older, recent cases have found it in women younger than 45 years of age. It is the most common cancer among American women other than skin cancer. Getting your routine exams are important! If you are unsure about screening and the how-to’s, talk with your healthcare provider. Breast cancer is a subject that needs to be talked about; share the stories, talk to survivors, ask questions. Your life is precious, don’t wait to schedule that appointment.
