October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Statistics show approximately one in eight women in the United States develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. The American Cancer Society guidelines recommend screening mammograms and physical breast examinations every year beginning at age 40 and a clinical breast exam about every three years for women in their 20s and 30s. The Warsaw Women’s Center offers Digital mammography in their office.  You can schedule your mammogram today.  Warsaw Women’s Center is offering mammograms on Saturday, October 4th from 9:00 a.m. to Noon, in addition to normal business hours.  They will also be at First Friday this Friday downtown across from City Hall.
