It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month — remember to schedule your mammogram

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Practice self-care by completing a self-check for signs and symptoms or schedule a mammogram.

At Norton Healthcare, we believe annual mammograms are one of the most important forms of self-care a woman can practice. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual reminder to do a self-check for signs and symptoms, schedule a mammogram and keep in mind those who are fighting breast cancer or have lost their lives to the disease.

Commit to Monthly Self-exams

  • The best time to do a self-exam is the week after your period ends.
  • Begin by standing in front of the mirror with your hands on your hips. Look for any unusual swelling or changes.
  • Raise your arms over your head and look for changes.
  • Lie down — or while in the shower when your skin is more slippery — and use one of these techniques to check for lumps or other changes.
