OCTOBER IS NATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women in the United States, next to skin cancer.
Some women are at higher risk for breast cancer than others because of their personal or family medical history or because of certain changes in their genes. Getting regular mammograms may lower the risk of dying from breast cancer.
If you or someone you love is on Medicare, take advantage of Medicare-covered preventive services, including mammograms.
Medicare covers a number of preventive services to help keep people with Medicare healthy.
