Sure, we hear a lot about breast cancer — especially in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. But how much do you really know about the disease? Were you aware of the fact, for instance, that breast cancer can run on your dad’s side of the family? Or that most cases of breast cancer occur in people who don’t have a family history of the disease?
Yahoo Health partnered with Bright Pink, an organization that aims to educate women on their breast and ovarian health, to share some must-know facts about breast cancer. Share it with your friends and family, and possibly save a life.
