We all think we know about breast cancer, but how much do you really know? Take our quiz and find out.
Happy Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Have you booked your annual check-up?
Breast cancer doesn't have to be the death sentence it used to be. We know you've heard people say, "Early detection saves lives." But what does that even mean? It means that when breast cancer is caught in its early stages before it has the chance to metastasize (or spread outside of the breast), there is actually a 99% chance of survival. This is why awareness is so crucial and why there is a whole month dedicated to reminding women to get screened. Because regular checkups mean you'll catch it in time to do something about it.
Breast cancer affects millions of people worldwide in some way, shape, or form, and it is the most common cancer found in women. So, we put together a little quiz of some of the most unknown facts about the pink cancer to test your trivia skills and maybe teach you something new along the way.
After all, it's Pinktober, so why not?
"I am a 36-year-old person with breast cancer, and not many people know that that happens to women my age or women in their 20s. This is my opportunity now to go out and fight as hard as I can for early detection."
Knowledge is power, but you know what is better? Action. Please schedule your annual checkup today.
