What Do You Do For Your Own Breast Cancer Awareness?

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it's important to not only think of others diagnosed with the disease during this time, but also it's important to think of how to be proactive in your own health and breast cancer prevention. I'm curious what you do to keep on top of your own breast cancer awareness?

My hubby and I examine each other, breast cancer is not just something women get diagnosed with.

I eat right, exercise, and I just stop smoking. Plus, every month I give myself the exam.

I do my BSE every month, my doctor always does a good exam on them during my yearly physical, and I eat right/don't smoke/exercise.

I work somewhere cancer-related, so I feel like my whole life is about non-stop cancer prevention. Biggest risks here are lifestyle, genetics, and chemical exposure, so keep up the healthy eating, exercise vigorously at least 3 times a week for 20 minutes, and know your family history so you know what exams to request.

I know I should probably do the self-exam every month, but I just wait for my annual and the gyno does it for me. Also the eating right/exercise/no smoking bit.
