Home Helpers & Direct Link of Broward and Palm Beach reminds Community about Breast Cancer Awareness

Local Home Care Company Offers Tips for Early Detection

Sunrise, FL (PRWEB) October 03, 2013 - Breast Cancer affects women more than any type of cancer. Because October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Home Helpers and Direct Link of Broward and Palm Beach is educating the local community on the symptoms of breast cancer and the importance of early detection.

According to the American Cancer Society, there are many symptoms that can indicate possible breast cancer. These include swelling of the breast, skin irritation, pain in the nipple, a lump in the underarm area, and discharge in the nipple, among others.

Every year, approximately 200,000 women and 1,700 men are diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2012 alone, there are expected to be more than 39,000 deaths as a result of breast cancer.

"As a caregiving agency that specializes in helping our clients live happy lives in their home, it is important for us to educate the local community on breast cancer detection," said Alan Silverberg, owner of Home Helpers & Direct Link of Broward and Palm Beach. "If more women understand the importance of early detection and how to conduct self-breast exams, thousands of lives could be saved each year."

The following are some simple tips for early detection:

  • Understanding how to conduct a self-breast exam: You must become familiar with understanding the texture of your breasts. By doing so, it will be easier for you to spot any lumps.
  • Consistently conduct self exams: The sooner you can catch any changes in your breasts, the better. It could be helpful to schedule time on your calendar each month to conduct an exam.
  • Speak with your doctor about crafting a plan: Depending on your age, your doctor will help you understand what examinations need to be done when. Having a set plan in place can help detect any potential dangers.

Home Helpers is one of the nation’s leading care franchise specializing in non-medical, companionship, personal care and medical services for seniors, new mothers and those recovering from illness or injury.
