No Bra Day: What is the Origin of this Day

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and, since 2014, the “No Bra Day” has been celebrated on the 13th to encourage more and more women to get checked because early diagnosis of the disease can save lives.

However, the day was originally proposed for October 11 by surgeon Mitchell Brown in 2011, but years later it was shaped as we now know it.

Breast cancer is one of the diseases that most kills women. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is a disease in which breast cells multiply uncontrollably.

There are different types of breast cancer. The type of breast cancer depends on which cells in the breast become cancerous. Breast cancer can start in different parts of the breast. The breasts are made up of three main parts: lobules, ducts, and connective tissue.

The lobules are the glands that produce milk. The ducts are the tubes that carry milk to the nipple. Connective tissue (made up of fibrous and fatty tissue) surrounds and supports all parts of the breast. Most breast cancers start in the ducts or lobules. Breast cancer can spread outside the breast through blood vessels and lymphatic vessels.

When breast cancer spreads to other parts of the body, it is said to have metastasized. Importance of No Bra Day That is why the “No bra day” or “day without a bra” becomes relevant in the face of breast cancer mortality.

Removing the bra one day to check ourselves can improve a diagnosis and save the life of the woman who may be at risk.
