October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I would like to encourage women and men to have a breast exam.

Yes, men do get breast cancer, too.

I am a Breast Cancer Survivor. I was diagnosed with breast cancer Feb. 8, 1999. I had cancer in my right breast and a "mirror image" in the left breast.

I chose to have both breast removed. I also chose to have no reconstruction. I have been cancer-free for 18 years and am very thankful for the physician's assistant from Lincoln, Nebraska, who found the lump in my breast.

Remember: Do your own breast self-exam monthly.
