View breast cancer awareness statistics in this post.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a yearly initiative to raise awareness about breast cancer. Spreading the word about breast cancer is vital: According to the National Cancer Institute, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer patients is nearly 90% when it’s detected in an early stage. It’s critical to recognize the risks for this disease and to identify how to detect it early on – it could mean your (or a loved one’s) life!

Talk to your medical doctor about your personal risk factors and the best screening options for your age and situation. Learn the current statistics about breast cancer in the infographic below and pay particular attention to the steps you can take to help prevent it or detect it early on.
