October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. Oceans TV has Join in the cause to help women and create awareness.
Early Detection is the key. According to the American Cancer Society, when breast cancer is detected early, and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 99%. Early detection includes doing monthly breast self-exams, and scheduling regular clinical breast exams and mammograms. A mammogram is an X-ray picture of the breast.
So we encourage adult women to perform breast self exams at least once a month.
