The Importance of Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast Cancer Awareby MIPC Staff

As you go about your busy schedule, and struggle to make time for yourself, please remember maintaining your personal wellness with routine check-ups can do more than a peace of mind. Really, it could save your life.

Did you know that second to skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women today[1]?

Health awareness observations, like Breast Cancer Awareness Month, are annual reminders of preventative care practices, not just a great excuse to wear pink.

Metro Immediate & Primary Care offers many types of routine physical screenings that can assess multiple areas of health and wellness.

MIPC’s well-women exams will check everything in a routine physical, such as family health history, heart health, address any specific health issues, and also includes a pelvic and breast exam.

Breast cancer risks are significantly lower in men, however, they can still occur.  That is why it is important to report any changes seen or felt in the breast, regardless of your gender.
