Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Share on Social:

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As one of the most common cancers among women worldwide according to the World Health Organization, breast cancer claims the lives of hundreds of thousands of women each year. The National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. states that in the United States, it’s estimated that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. Early detection and awareness are crucial for successful treatment.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and hormone therapy are common courses of treatment. Surgical procedures for breast cancer patients include lymph node removal, lymphedema, lumpectomy, mastectomy and breast reconstruction. SRC understands that one of the most important decisions a patient can make is who to receive treatment from. To help patients take the guesswork out of their decision, we set strict standards for accredited surgeons and hospitals in our Breast Treatment accreditation program. Look for the gold seal, expect excellence.
