October is breast health awareness month

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

You are seeing a lot of pink this time of year and it is not a coincidence.

We explain in this week's Neighborhood Health Watch.

In henrico Dr. Lauren Goode is reminding her female patients about being aware of breast cancer- October is breast cancer awareness month.

Breast cancer may not have any symptoms at all. Not all lumps felt in breasts are cancer, but they should all be taken seriously and evaluated appropriately.

Women over age 40 should be getting a yearly mammogram.

See your provider about proper breast cancer screening.
