October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Join with Vanderbilt to:

  • Know the facts!
  • Celebrate survivorship, and honor and remember loved ones!
  • Raise awareness about steps to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer – including having an early detection plan!

Know the Facts:

  • Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast.
  • Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer in American women.
  • Regular breast check-ups are the best ways to detect breast cancer early. Early detection provides you with an increased chance of recovery and a wider range of treatment options.

Learn more about breast check-up information from Vanderbilt Breast Center.
