Save the Tatas!

Since I am a nurse I didn't think my blog was complete without me sharing some health tips with you. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month I think this would be a great way to kick off Health Nuts!


Did you know that something as simple as performing monthly self breast exams could save your life? Well it can! If you are over the age of 20 you should be doing breast exams every month. I suggest you wait a few days after your cycle when your breast is less tender, if you no longer have a cycle pick a day out of every month and make that your day to do your breast exams.  If you are not sure how to do them this video will help guide you through!

Statistics show about 1:8 women in the U.S will develop breast cancer over the course of her life.  Those are very scary statistics. Both women and men can develop breast cancer but it is more prevalent in women. Be sure to do your monthly breast exams and women 40 and above be sure to get your annual mammogram screenings. If you have a family history of breast cancer consult with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms. You could save your own life just by doing monthly breast self exams and reporting any symptoms to your doctor. Spread the word and lets Save the TaTas!
