Myth #1: Monthly breast self-exams save lives

NBCCMost of us think that regular breast self-exams are a no-brainer, but the evidence actually shows that breast self-exam does not save lives or detect breast cancer at an earlier stage.

This myth, along with 30 other myths and truths about breast cancer, will be highlighted throughout the month of October by the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC).

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and NBCC is doing what it does best – getting us to think critically about our assumptions and keeping us focused on the important part: finding a cure. To help translate this message online, Beaconfire partnered with NBCC on a redesigned homepage and new site skin that draws attention to common misconceptions about breast cancer and offers concrete action items for people ready to take the next step.
