Think Pink! While cancer awareness is important 356 days a year, the month of October every year is designated to remind everyone to check – at least annually – for breast cancer. And this means men AND women! Please make an appointment with your doctor or locate a place here in Leflore County where you can have a mammogram done for free.

Cada octubre en los EUA es el mes de recordarles a todas las mujeres y hombres (sí, ¡es cierto!) que visiten a su médico a recibir las pruebas de cáncer de seno. Por favor, ¡cuídense por visitar a su médico! El condado de Leflore tiene clínicas en las que pueden recibir esta prueba.

Self Breast Exam / Auto exmination de los senos:  A breast self-examination (BSE) is a technique which allows an individual to examine his/her breast tissue for any physical or visual changes. It is often used as an early detection method for breast cancer. Both men and women should perform a BSE at least once each month beginning at age 18.
