October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which holds a lot of meaning for our firm. As medical malpractice attorneys, we have seen firsthand the devastating impact of breast cancer without a prompt diagnosis. We regularly fight in court for people who have lost time, resources, and even their lives in the battle against breast cancer.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a great opportunity to check in with your doctor about your breast health. Many of us put off our mammograms or skip the occasional self-exam, and this month is a perfect time to put your mind at ease. A mammogram allows cancer to be detected up to two years before your doctor can feel a lump, and early detection is often critical to successful treatment.
