October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In our community, breast cancer is one of the many health concerns we often do not discuss. It's time to get candid about breast cancer.
According to the CDC, “Black women and white women get breast cancer at about the same rate, but Black women die from breast cancer at a higher rate than white women.”
Black women younger than 40-45 years old are increasingly being diagnosed with breast cancer, compared to white women.
All women are different and can experience varying symptoms. Some common symptoms include:
Pain in any area of the breast.
Thickening or swelling in part(s) of the breast.
New lump in the breast or underarm.
Irritation or dimpling of breast skin.
Nipple discharge including blood.
Any change in the size or the shape of the nipple and breast.
What can we do?
Pay attention to your breast. You know them better than anyone else. If something looks or feels different than normal you should follow up on it, do not wait. Talk to your doctor.
Early detection is key to treating cancer when it’s smaller. Schedule mammogram screenings regularly, and if your family has a history of breast cancer talk to your doctor about screening younger than 40, which is the recommended age according to the CDC.
Breasts can change due to having your period, gaining or losing weight, medication, and having children.
Take a few moments and check your breast. Read and do your research, it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

In the spirit of maintaining a positive image in the Black community, we have decided to designate the first two weeks in October to acknowledge Black owned restaurants in Arizona. This is the first year that we have done this and will continue this for years to come.
We want to share with you the businesses that are thriving in our community or they're just starting out and need our support. To start us off, we present to you Cafe Desta.
Cafe Desta has been proudly serving traditional Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisine since 2010. Located south of Downtown Tucson, Cafe Desta offers traditional vegan dish options and meat dishes incorporating chicken, lamb, and fish. All of their meals are served with injera, a spongy bread made from teff, sorghum and wheat flour that is used like a tortilla to scoop food up from the plate.
If you are in the area, be sure to give them a try.
