October is Breast Cancer awareness month, which makes it a good time to talk about breast cancer and prevention. Who's at risk of getting breast cancer?
Simply being a woman and getting older puts you at risk for breast cancer. The older you are, the greater your chances of getting breast cancer. Also, you are at higher risk if your mother, sister, or daughter has had breast cancer.
Finding the disease early with mammograms and breast exams by your provider or nurse can save your life. To schedule your mammogram at HCHS, call: 641-843-5190. HCHS has convenient evening hours as well to fit in better with your lifestyle.
