National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month! 2020 has been quite the tumultuous year for all of us, but did you know that 276,480 women have been diagnosed with breast cancer in just 2020 alone?! With that, there will be an estimated 42,170 deaths. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. Statistics also say that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. It’s important to be proactive in catching breast cancer early. As breast cancer can oftentimes be familial, patients should continue to be screened annually. In order to receive your yearly mammogram order, we encourage you to schedule an appointment to see one of our primary care physicians. Altamonte MD prides themselves on supporting women and men who are concerned with their overall health. To schedule your first appointment, call our front office team at 407-767-0009.
