Women’s Wellbeing Month

Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common
cancer in women. Mammograms are the best way to find
breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it
is big enough to feel or cause symptoms.

ACT NOW: Schedule a your age and gender-appropriate
preventive screening this fall. If you are up to date on your
care, encourage someone you love to do so.
Other things you can do to lower your risk:

  • Keep a healthy weight
  • Exercise regularly (at least four hours a week)
  • Avoid or limit alcoholic drinks
  • Avoid exposure to carcinogens (like tobacco)
