Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is breast cancer awareness month. This time serves as a good reminder for all of us to better understand breast cancer risk, screening guidelines, current therapies and promising research.
Although much progress has been made against this disease over the years, breast cancer remains the number two cause of cancer death among women in the United States (exceeded only by lung cancer.)

- current breast cancer treatments and innovative therapies available through clinical trials
- breast cancer symptoms and risk factors, and ways you can lower your breast cancer risk
- screening guidelines and tests available to detect breast cancer
