Breast Cancer: What You Need to Know

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and here at Memorable Gifts’ our goal is to create awareness for breast cancer, which includes information on what exactly breast cancer is, how it can be prevented, symptoms, and much more. This will hopefully encourage people to take preventative measures, be able to immediately identify potential issues, and ultimately support the cause.

Given the fact that 1 in 8 women (13.4%) will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, it’s imperative for the world to come together and not only educate, but support individuals that have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. In 2017, it’s estimated that about 30% of newly diagnosed cancers in women will be breast cancers and About 2,470 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2017. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. This is a serious epidemic and can affect people you know, loved ones and even yourself.
