Breast Cancer has touched the lives of many women we know and love. This month, we remember and celebrate those women- their fight, their strength, and their courage. #EndBreastCancerForever #MoreThanPink 

We have put together a small article about breast cancer, warning signs, and a link to find out more about breast cancer. Join in the fight to help End Breast Cancer Forever!

“Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide and the second-most common cancer overall. In 2016, an estimated 246,660 cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. alone. So no matter who you are or where you live, understanding breast cancer is important. But the most important thing to know is this: a diagnosis is not a death sentence. Breast cancer can be treated.

The content within the About Breast Cancer section was co-developed with Harvard Medical School faculty and Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center staff. “

Warning Signs

“The warning signs of breast cancer are not the same for all women. The most common signs are a change in the look or feel of the breast, a change in the look or feel of the nipple and nipple discharge. Learn more. ”

Other Breast Conditions

“Other conditions and benign (not cancer) changes can occur in the breast. Some increase the risk of breast cancer and others do not.

Learn about lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS).

Learn about benign breast conditions.
