Story

Although October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, women should be aware of breast cancer warning signs year-round. See how that knowledge helped a Columbia woman recognize her own cancer and seek help.

“I think her story is a lesson for all of us as women. She felt something abnormal. She sought care from her doctor and was able to be diagnosed with breast cancer relatively quickly from when she found a lump. We do not want women to ignore new changes, such as lumps, rashes or skin thickening, that may be early signs of breast cancer,” said Emily Albright, MD, a surgical oncologist at MU Health Care.
