What Co-Survivors need to know…
Co-Survivors – family, friends, health care providers or colleagues – are sources of many different levels and types of support for a breast cancer survivor through diagnosis, treatment and beyond. There are as many ways of being a co-survivor as there are people! Thoughtful gestures big and small mean so much to survivors, whether they’ve just been diagnosed or completed treatment years ago. Thanks for the strength, love and support you show in ways big and small by being a co-survivor. Learn more about our Co-Survivor Program

In Need of Financial Help?
Susan G. Komen for the Cure® provides funding to organizations that help with program and financial assistance. Two of these organizations, the Patient Advocate Foundation and CancerCare, provide various assistance for qualified patients with breast cancer. Click here to read more.

Environmental factors and breast cancer science review
Komen for the Cure wanted to understand the relationship between environmental factors and breast cancer, and where additional research or improved research methods are needed.

We commissioned and funded a comprehensive state-of-the-science review of scientific research on environmental factors that may increase breast cancer risk. The review was led by the Silent Spring Institute, who along with other researchers created a unique, searchable online database. This database features detailed information on over 200 chemicals that cause breast cancer in animals. Learn more about the study / access the Silent Spring findings and free online database

The Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention
The About Breast Cancer section was co-developed with the Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention.

Breast Self-Awareness

Except for skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, but it can be successfully treated. Screening tests can find cancer early, when it’s most treatable.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure® recommends that you:

1. Know your risk

Talk to your family to learn about your family health history
Talk to your provider about your personal risk of breast cancer
2. Get screened

Ask your doctor which screening tests are right for you if you are at a higher risk
Have a mammogram every year starting at age 40 if you are at average risk
Have a clinical breast exam at least every 3 years starting at 20, and every year starting at 40
3. Know what is normal for you
See your health care provider right away if you notice any of these breast changes:

Lump, hard knot or thickening
Swelling, warmth, redness or darkening
Change in the size or shape of the breast
Dimpling or puckering of the skin
Itchy, scaly sore or rash on the nipple
Pulling in of your nipple or other parts of the breast
Nipple discharge that starts suddenly
New pain in one spot that doesn’t go away
4. Make healthy lifestyle choices

Maintain a healthy weight
Add exercise into your routine
Limit alcohol intake


Breast Self-Awareness (BSA) Interactive Tool
Breast self-exam (BSE) is a tool that may help you learn what is normal for you. BSE involves looking at and feeling your breasts. Women who practice BSE should also be sure to get mammograms and clinical breast exams at the appropriate age. BSE should not be substituted for these screening tests. For more information on BSE and other screening methods, visit Susan G. Komen for the Cure: Early Detection & Screening.

Newly revised, this tool developed in English, Spanish and Hindi, will help you learn and promote breast self-awareness. It will also teach you how to look and feel for any changes in your breasts. Use the links below to view this interactive instructional tool.

(To view the online BSA tool you need Macromedia Flash installed on your computer. Macromedia Flash is available for download free.)

Breast Self-Exam (BSE) Cards

Thanks for posting.

We need more awareness around this issue.

I just lost a loved one to breast cancer.
