Every year, the month of October is celebrated as breast cancer awareness month. This is done to increase awareness, encourage examination and early detection of the illness. In this issue, we will be dispelling popular myths and countering them with facts.

Myth: \"If I don't have a family history of breast cancer, I can't get it\" Fact: Most people diagnosed with breast cancer, have no family history. Myth: If you maintain a healthy weight, exercise regularly and eat healthily, you don’t have to worry about breast cancer. Fact: Although these behaviors can help lower breast cancer risk, they can’t eliminate it.

Myth: Breast cancer always causes a lump you can feel. Fact: Breast cancer might not cause a lump, especially when it first develops. Myth: Breast cancer only happens to middle-aged and older women. Fact: Younger women can and do get breast cancer, as do men.

Myth: Carrying your cell phone in your bra can cause breast cancer. Fact: There is no evidence of a connection between cell phones and breast cancer, but the safety of cell phones is still being studied (National Breast Cancer Foundation, 2021)
