Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Women in the United States make approximately 80% of the healthcare decisions for their families.

Our moms, aunts, sisters, and daughters are also the ones that must fight one of the most common cancers in the United States, which is Breast Cancer.

For over four decades, October has been recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A lot of people find themselves saying “it won’t happen to me.” However, no matter who you are or where you are from, breast cancer may touch your life. Take this time to share a fact or health tip to a friend or family member. It could help save their life.

According to, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime (that’s one person every 12 minutes in the U.S.). It’s important to know your risk, get screened and know your body.

Your Risk

Knowing your family history is important. Talk to your doctor about your family history, especially if someone in your family has had breast cancer.

Get Screened

If you are at average risk for Breast Cancer, be sure to get a mammogram every year starting at age 40.

Know Your Body

What’s normal for you? If something doesn’t feel right, speak up!

Although those are three good tips – there’s more! Living a healthy lifestyle such as limiting alcohol intake, maintaining a healthy weight, and exercising regularly will help reduce the risk of breast cancer as well as other diseases and conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis, and ligament injuries.

As it is for hip, shoulder, knee replacements and other joint injuries, early detection and effective treatment for breast cancer are critical. As you find yourself making the 80% of healthcare decisions for your family’s orthopedic needs, keep Cohen Orthopedic in mind. Same day, next day appointments by calling 614-788-0375.
