Tips on Tuesday: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I think everyone is aware that monthly self breast exams and getting a mammogram are the two key components to early detection. It seems that many of my friends are very committed to regular breast self exams, but when I ask them about their yearly mammograms, they can't quite 'get around' to going in.

As a woman whose baseline mammogram detected an anomaly causing me to be rechecked every six months for a while until it disappeared, all I can do is to urge you to make you appointment and go. 

I see mammograms like Geico with a twist, "Fifteen minutes could save your life." 
Do your health a favor, go.
