October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The purpose of the month is to better understand the warning signs of breast cancer. This year it has even more significance since many delayed regular breast cancer screenings during COVID in 2020 and 2021.
Through research more knowledge has been obtained that has led to new therapies and targeted treatment that has improved outcomes for many people.
