Breast Cancer Screening Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October 12, 2021

October is Breast Cancer Screening Awareness Month.

More than 355,000 women were newly diagnosed with breast cancer, and nearly 92,000 women died from the disease across the EU-27 in 2020.

Contrary to popular belief, men can also be affected by breast cancer, although it is rare (<1% of all breast cancers occur in males).

Breast Cancer Screening Awareness Month is also an opportunity to raise funds for medical and scientific research. A whole host of fundraising events (walks, races, etc.) are staged across numerous cities and countries, and many companies get involved, including Ann Taylor, Asda, Bumble and Bumble, Cuisinart, Damart, Dorothy Perkins, Erin Condren, Estée Lauder, Felix Gray, Jo Malone, GHD, Kendra Scott, Pilot Pen, Pura Vida, etc.
