‘Pink’ Baptist Health Corbin is a reminder to schedule an exam

CORBIN, Ky. (WTVQ) – With a pink glow surrounding Baptist Health Corbin in the evening hours, it is a reminder that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink lights now illuminate the Cancer Care area as well as the tower.

Cancer screenings help find cancer before symptoms are experienced. This is especially important in diagnosing breast cancer, which affects one of every six women ages 40 to 49. When found early breast cancer is highly treatable.

Early detection can make a difference. Generally, the later cancer is detected, the more serious and involved treatment becomes. Catching cancer at an earlier stage may make cancer easier to treat and improve outcomes. If you’re high risk, it’s important to stick to your regular screening schedule.
