When October comes around, the color pink is extra popular. That's because it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is very near and dear to our hearts at Anthony's Ladies Apparel, and we want to encourage our customers to be aware and be preventative. For years, our stores have partnered with the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation. We will be collecting donations for the entirety of October. As an awareness campaign, this has been incredibly successful. So, don't forget to wear pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Why to Support Breast Cancer Awareness
Did you know that besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women? Medical researchers as well as members of the Susan G. Komen Foundation have found that about one in eight women in the United States develop breast cancer over the course of their lifetimes.
How to Practice Breast Cancer PreventionDoctors remind us that early detection of breast cancer is the most effective way to beat the disease. That is why it is essential for women to conduct their own breast exams to discover any potential abnormalities. Pay attention to changes in the appearance or feel of your breasts.
Doctors Recommend to:
-Take a look at your breasts every day and notice their appearance and shape.
-changes in breast size, shape, skin texture, or color
-dimpling or puckering
-discharge from the nipples
-scaliness of the skin
-nipple pulling to one side
-lump or mass in the breast
-enlarged lymph node under the arm
And of course, if you notice any of these changes, you should bring them up to your doctor. Routine screenings with your doctor can also help with prevention. Women over the age of 40 should get a mammogram every single year.
