October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and each year health professionals in the United States rally to bring awareness to an worldwide health issue that affects both women and men. All funds raised will be donated to the charity METAvivor, which uses 100 percent of donations towards research to battle metastatic breast cancer. "We now have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest to stop thousands more women dying from breast cancer, and we urge the government to act now", said Breast Cancer Now's chief executive, Baroness Delyth Morgan. The American Cancer Society estimates that 2,550 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in men in 2018.

According to the SA National Cancer Registry, one in 29 women in South Africa will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Pretty much every single team has designated gear whose sale proceeds go toward a breast cancer charity. The warning signs of breast cancer are not the same for all women. If a woman finds lumps or feels discomfort or pain, she should seek medical help sooner rather than later.

"Research also suggests that other factors such as smoking, being exposed to chemicals that can cause cancer, and changes in other hormones due to night shift work also may increase breast cancer risk", Repole said.

Madison Pejsa, senior dental hygiene major and Colleges Against Cancer co-president said she is passionate about Breast Cancer Awareness Month because it's something close to her heart. A clinical breast exam may be recommended more frequently if they have a strong family history of breast cancer.
