October is breast cancer awareness month and it touches nearly every one of us in one way or another. Most of us know someone, whether it’s a mother, cousin, sister, aunt, grandmother, friend or yourself, who has battled breast cancer.

About one in eight U.S women will develop an invasive form of breast cancer in their lifetime but there are over 3 million breast cancer survivors in the United States today.

Here are some guidelines:

1. Breast self-exams should be done monthly, and the best time to do them is 10 days after your menstrual cycle.

2. Have your doctor perform a breast examine. It’s important to find a doctor you are comfortable with because you should be getting breast exams done once a year.

3. Get mammograms. This applies to women over the age of 40 or mid to late 30s for women that breast cancer runs in the family.

So there you have it: monthly self-exams, annual doctor’s exam and a mammogram. These three things are your best bet for catching breast cancer in its earliest stages. Trust your judgement when it comes to your body. Don’t ever feel like you are overreacting if you “think” something is off go to the doctors. Early detection is key to preventions!
