During the month of October for Breast Cancer Awareness month, our teams around the globe took initiative to support and honor everyone who was or is afflicted by breast cancer. With this video, we want to highlight the importance of awareness, early detection and education.
According to IARC Globocan, “breast cancer is by far the most common cancer in women worldwide, both in the developed and developing countries.
Currently there is not sufficient knowledge on the causes of breast cancer; therefore, early detection of the disease remains the cornerstone of breast cancer control. When breast cancer is detected early, and if adequate diagnosis and treatment are available, there is a good chance that breast cancer can be cured.
If detected late, however, curative treatment is often no longer an option. In such cases, palliative care to relief the suffering of patients and their families is needed.”
Please take a moment to educate yourself about measures of self-examination and be aware of any unusual changes in your body. Be aware so you can be!
