In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Northwest Health System would like to remind you to schedule your yearly mammogram.
Routine care is the best way to keep you and your breasts healthy. Although detecting breast cancer at its earliest stages is the main goal of routine breast care, other benign conditions, such as fibrocystic breasts or cysts, are often discovered during routine care. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer. For all these reasons and more, Northwest Heath System, in recognition that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, urges women to take special notice of breast health.
Attached is a Breast Cancer Awareness Poster with several breast cancer screening and awareness events taking place in Northwest Arkansas during the month of October. For more information visit www.northwesthealth.com/breasthealth
