It’s hard to see the pink ribbon without thinking of a friend or family member who has battled breast cancer. It affects us all. One in every eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer over a lifetime.

With so much information out there on breast cancer, it’s often hard to decipher what is myth vs. reality. Here are some of the common misconceptions that are often portrayed in regards to breast cancer.

  1. Young women do not get breast cancer
  2. Breast cancer is preventable
  3. Women with small breasts have reduced risk of cancer
  4. Breast cancer only comes in the form of lumps
  5. Meat-free diets prevent breast cancer

On Oct. 16, Dr. Beth Hellerstedt will address these myths as well as prevention, treatment and living with breast cancer at the Brushy Creek Community Center.
