By

It is the final day of October and the final day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but doctors say the disease that affects about 1 in 8 women needs to be on people's minds year round…"It's a bump in the road I guess is how I look at it," Patti Wik of Menomonie said…Two abnormal areas were found in Patti's breast. Both were cancerous. "Both of the abnormalities were small and they probably would not have been detected on mammogram or clinically for at least another year," Mayo Clinic Health System Eau Claire Radiologist Dr. Jodie Van Wyhe explained.
