Sadly, roughly one in eight women in the United States will get breast cancer some time during their life, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Fortunately, when detected and treated early, it can be beat.
Lifestyle changes have been shown to decrease breast cancer risk even in high-risk women. The following four tips are just some things you can do to lower your risk:
We at Gatti Pharmacy of course recommend you regularly do breast self-exams as well as ask your doctor about when you should get a mammogram, especially if you are 40 years or older. Make sure to also ask us about our mastectomy products and professional fitting services if you or someone you know is currently fighting breast cancer.
Are you following any of the recommendations above?
