October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In the UK, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 10 minutes. It is vital that we know the potential risk factors that can cause breast cancer.

There are many small changes we can make to reduce our chances of getting breast cancer. Physical exercise for only 20 minutes a day and a healthy diet can help reduce the risk of breast cancer. Breast Cancer UK has many resources on how to reduce the risk.

Checking your breasts once a month helps identify what may not be right for you. Here is a video on how to check your breasts for any warning signs or symptoms.

There are plenty of resources available to help with support for those living with breast cancer. Here in Hertsmere, we are running a cancer awareness event at the Wyllyots Theatre, Potters Bar on 9 October, 2-6pm. This is a great opportunity to talk with local professionals about health services available to you.

Stoptober is a national campaign aiming to get as many people up and down the country to attempt to quit smoking. Evidence shows if you stop smoking for 28 days, you are 5 times more likely to quit for good.

Quitting is always easier with the right support around you. Here in Hertsmere, our healthy hubs are fully trained to provide a stop smoking clinic to help you on your journey to quit. Anyone wanting to quit can also visit their GP or local pharmacy for support, helped by Hertfordshire County Council’s Stop Smoking service.

When you stop smoking, good things start to happen. Start your journey now to quit smoking this October.
