October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

According to, approximately one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

October is breast cancer awareness month and a great time to support breast cancer research as well as breast cancer survivors. Penn Medicine is home to two award-winning breast centers: the Rena Rowan Breast Center at Penn’s Abramson Cancer Center and the Integrated Breast Center at Pennsylvania Hospital, part of the Joan Karnell Cancer Center. Both centers are accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.

October is also a great time to schedule your yearly mammogram. Penn Medicine is proud to be one of the region’s only medical centers offering digital breast tomosynthesis at the Ruth and Raymond Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine.
