For four decades, Susan G. Komenhas worked toward creating a world without breast cancer. This incredible organization focuses on several crucial areas that serve as a guideline for their work and efforts, including Komen-led research initiatives, advocating for policies that protect patients and prioritize their critical needs, and providing evidence-based education and support. In the last year, nearly 26,000 individuals were served in the Patient Care Center, with a steady 54% increase year after year, and throughout its history, Komen has funded nearly $1.1 billion in breast cancer research since our inception.

Komen wants to ensure that everyone is aware of the breast cancer warning signs and talk to their doctor if they notice any change from normal. The following breast self-awareness  messages could help save lives. We encourage you to read and share with your loved ones.

1. Know your risk

  • Talk to both sides of your family to learn about your family health history.
  • Talk to a doctor about your risk of breast cancer.

2. Get screened 

  • Talk with a doctor about which screening tests are for you if you are at higher risk. 
  • Have a mammogram every year starting at age 40 if you are at average risk. 
  • Have a clinical breast exam at least every 3 years starting at age 20, and every year starting at age 40. 

3. Know what is normal for you 

  • See a doctor if you notice any of these breast changes:
    • Lump, hard knot or thickening inside the breast or underarm area
    • Swelling, warmth, redness or darkening of the breast 
    • Change in the size or shape of the breast
    • Dimpling or puckering of the skin 
    • Itchy, scaly sore or rash on the nipple
    • Pulling in of the nipple or other parts of your breast
    • Nipple discharge that starts suddenly 
    • New pain in one spot that does not go away 

Did you know 6 of the 8 warning signs of breast cancer are visual?

The signs of breast cancer are not the same for everyone. It is important to know how your breasts normally look and feel. If you notice any change, see a doctor. 

4. Make healthy lifestyle choices 

  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Make exercise part of your routine.
  • Limit alcohol intake. 
  • Limit menopausal hormone use. 
  • Breastfeed if you can.
