October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Medical Society wants to save more lives by increasing awareness of this disease.
Monthly examinations have proven to be instrumental as early detection of breast cancer is the KEY to survival! We urge all women to schedule your annual mammogram and not be afraid to endure a tiny pinch that could ultimately save your life! All mammograms are covered by insurance plans and there are several organizations such as the American Cancer Society and National Breast Cancer Foundation that will provide access to free mammograms for uninsured women. There is no reason to forgo this annual procedure. Special Notice: A new report from the American Cancer Society finds that death rates from breast cancer in the US have dropped 34% since 1990.
The Sarasota County Medical Society would like to remind you to take control of your health and THINK PINK!
If you have been diagnosed with cancer, we urge you to schedule an appointment with your primary physician as soon as possible. After your diagnosis your doctor may refer you to one or more specialist. For your convenience, we have included a team of specialists who all provide a form of treatment for breast cancer. They are members of the Medical Society… SCMS Think Pink Specialists
