Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It’s that time of year – pink is everywhere. From neon pink shoes during football games, to rose lights glowing in the northern entrance of the White House, it is nearly impossible to forget about Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The color pink has become a trusty symbol of all things breast cancer. However, for many, it is all about flashing color instead of actually learning about the disease. While awareness of breast cancer has increased exponentially from the pink campaign, often times facts and figures are left out of the awareness equation. For example, did you know that breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in American women when you exclude cancers of the skin? Or that breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among US women – losing out the number spot to lung cancer. Let’s not forget about men that are diagnosed with breast cancer, because there are 2,150 of them each year. Unfortunately, 410 of these men will die each year – many because they did not realize they had breast cancer until it had progressed to other parts of the body.

Test your knowledge of breast cancer and how it affects women (and men) by taking our informative quiz. Do your part in learning more about the disease so that we can form a well-educated public that knows the causes, symptoms, and treatments for breast cancer as well as other diseases.
