Breast Cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed among US women and is the second leading cause of death among women after lung cancer. As October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, it is time to get proactive with your health’s security at home.
There are more than 3.5 million US breast cancer survivors in the United States. When detected early, breast cancer is treatable. Some warning signs of breast cancer can include a lump in the breast or underarm (armpit area), thickening or swelling of part of the breast. Other tells could be irritation or dimpling of breast skin, redness or flaky skin in the nipple area of the breast, nipple discharge that is not breast milk, changes in the size or the shape, and pain in any part of the nipple or breast.
It is time to take control of your life and be proactive! Start by knowing what the risk factors are for your health. An easy way to take care of yourself is by getting regular cancer screening tests. Cancer screenings are a way to be preventative and catch any early detection. Other ways to help are to; maintain a healthy weight, exercise regularly, have a nutritious diet, avoid smoking and tobacco use, and limit the amount of alcohol intake.
Another way to protect yourself is by having a smart security system and local monitoring installed in your home. A medical alert system would help for any unpredicted medical emergencies. Having a wearable pendant with a call button that, when pressed, dispatches emergency help and notifies family members, is a great way to be proactive. Pendants could help in an emergency and be able to unlock doors and turn on the lights with the use of your smart security system when you are unable to get up and do it yourself.
