Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast cancer remains the second leading cause of deaths among women in the United States. About 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Although American Indian and Alaska Native women have a lower breast cancer incidence rate compared to other groups, those who develop breast cancer are more often diagnosed at a later stage, when it is harder to treat. Remember to set up an appointment for regular screenings and a mammography.
