Breast Cancer Awareness Month is in full swing, and its goal of spreading the word about the importance of early detection has not wavered. To provide additional information about breast cancer, a variety of organizations have designed mobile-based applications. Here is a roundup of a few you should try out:

Breast Self-Exam
This application by Webfoot Technologies teaches women how to perform a self-exam and map out their results. In the case that a lump is found, the application has a diagram where you can chart out where you found an abnormality and input the firmness level to share with a doctor.

Choose This Not That
Based on information obtained through the U.S. government, this application offers nutritional advice to help reduce risk or combat breast cancer and other diseases. The diet suggestions are licensed by Personal Remedies, which is a community partner with the Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion of USDA Nutrition Communicators Network.

Beyond Shock
The National Breast Cancer Foundation has created this app to provide educational videos and tales of survivors. The "Learn" section allows you to access information on a broad range of topics. Additionally, users can input questions that will later be answered by community members.
