National Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2022

This October, as we celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, let's bust some myths about breast cancer!

Myths About Breast Cancer ⁠

  • Myth: Men do not get breast cancer; it affects women only⁠

  • Fact: each year it is estimated that appropriately 2,190 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 410 will die.⁠


  • Myth: Breast cancer is contagious⁠

  • Fact: You cannot catch or transfer it to someone else’s body.


  • Myth: Finding a lump in your breast means you have breast cancer

  • Fact: Only a small percentage of breast lumps turn out to be cancer. But if you discover a persistent lump in your breast that is new or notice any changes in breast tissue, it should never be ignored.

We stand behind the advocacy of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and encourage everyone to get screened and tested regularly.
