About Breast Health
Breast health is an important part of our overall health and well-being. Being breast healthy means being breast aware; knowing about breast cancer risk factors and proactive ways to help reduce your personal risk of breast cancer; and being informed about screening for the earlier detection of breast cancer. These are important aspects of preventive health care.
Preventive health is about making your health and well-being a priority. When you practice preventive health, you take action, informed by evidence-based knowledge or the precautionary principle, to improve your chances of good health and better the odds of stopping disease before it starts.
