For nearly four decades, October has been internationally recognized as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is a time when we work to educate everyone about breast cancer, including the importance of early detection and access to timely and quality care. Now, let's take a look back at what Forlest did in October.
What kind of bra is suitable for breast cancer patients?When it comes to selecting the right bra for breast cancer patients, there are a few key considerations to keep in mind. At our store, we prioritize the comfort and support of our customers who have undergone surgery or experience movement restrictions.

Tips for Preventing Breast Cancer
1. Perform regular self-exams.
Regularly examining your breasts is a crucial step in detecting breast cancer early. By becoming familiar with the normal look and feel of your breasts, you can identify any changes and promptly seek medical advice. Taking care of your health is within your control! Make it a habit to perform self-exams once a month, preferably a few days after your menstrual period when your breasts are less likely to be tender or swollen. Stand in front of a mirror and visually inspect your breasts for any changes in size, shape, or color. Look for any visible lumps, dimpling, or skin changes such as redness or puckering. Next, physically examine your breasts by using the pads of your fingers to feel for any lumps, thickening, or hardened knots. Start from the outer edges and work your way toward the nipple in a circular motion. Don't forget to also check the armpit area for any swelling or lumps. If you notice any changes or have concerns, don't hesitate to reach out to your healthcare provider for further evaluation.
2. Adopt a healthy eating plan and habits.
Take control of your health and decrease your risk of breast cancer by following these effective strategies. Educate yourself and make informed decisions to prioritize your well-being. Start by incorporating a balanced and nutritious diet into your daily routine. Aim to include a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats in your meals. Limit your intake of processed foods, sugary beverages, and excessive amounts of saturated fats. Maintaining a healthy weight is also important, as obesity has been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer. Engage in regular physical activity, such as brisk walking, jogging, swimming, or cycling, for at least 150 minutes per week. Additionally, limit your alcohol consumption, as excessive alcohol intake has been associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. Stay hydrated by drinking an adequate amount of water throughout the day. Quit smoking if you're a smoker, as smoking has been linked to various types of cancer, including breast cancer. By making these lifestyle changes, you can take proactive steps to promote your overall health and reduce your risk of breast cancer.
