We are aware that one of the cool things about the month October is Breast Cancer Awareness. Breast Care for all women is vital, particularly due to genetics, lifestyle and, and age. In the District there are so many campaigns for the cause.

It’s never to early to fitting a self-breast examination. If you have full bust, you start at the age of 20. Clinical breast exams are usually part of the routine for your physical, annual pap visit or a regular doctor’s visit. If you are age 40 and above please don’t skip your yearly mammogram screening.
