October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it should go without saying that regular breast screenings are vital to one’s health. According to the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC), in the United States, there are roughly about 264,00 cases of breast cancer diagnosis in women and about 2,400 cases in men.
There can be early signs to look for such as lumps around your breasts, asymmetrical breasts that are highly noticeable, discharge from your nipple and much more. If you have these symptoms or are unsure of any of them consider visiting Kessmann Functional & Concierge Medicine for cancer prevention. They are able to help patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle by alerting patients about known cancer-causing substances. They also highlight medicines or vaccines that can actually prevent certain cancers from developing.
Other options to choose from are Baylor Scott & White Plano and Addison Internal Medicine. Both locations have practitioners and doctors who care for their patients’ health and they want to make sure that patients are being proactive in regard to their wellness. It is very much understood that sometimes checkups can seem a tad overwhelming, however, it is detrimental to you and your loved ones to understand that many times certain cancers can be prevented. Don’t wait and schedule your appointment.
