Finding Breast Cancer

One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer. The longer someone has breast cancer before it is detected, the more difficult the treatment becomes and the worse the odds of survival. One of the best ways to find breast cancer earlier is by self-exam.

The Worldwide Breast Cancer organization has come out with a nice campaign using photos designed by a breast cancer survivor to help increase awareness of how to find breast cancer.

This campaign gets the point across effectively and can be used in social media posts to help spread the word. The original photo has been shared nearly 35,000 times and seen by more than 3 million people. Just think about how many lives can be saved!

If you find anything like this in your breast self exam, please let your doctor know about it!
