October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month:

VFW National - 10/5/2021

Although rare, male veterans make up 1% of breast cancer cases. Congress introduced VFW-supported H.R. 4794 / S. 2533, the Making Advances in Mammography and Medical Options for Veterans Act, which would require VA to develop a breast imaging strategic plan, upgrade to 3D digital mammography, create telemammography, and streamline veterans’ electronic medical records. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people postponed or canceled annual preventive care services, such as mammograms. As more individuals receive the COVID-19 vaccine and restrictions lift, veterans who are overdue for preventive care should schedule as soon as possible.
