October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I know some people who died because of breast cancer. My Godmother was one who was single and in her late 40's that time. She never told anyone about what she's going through until one day when my mother hugged her and she complained of extreme pain. When she finally agreed to have a check-up, she was diagnosed to have a stage 4 breast cancer. She died just a year after...

Based on statistics, Philippines has the highest occurrence of breast cancer in Asia. It is estimated that 3 out of 100 Filipino women will contract breast cancer before the age of 75, and that 1 out 100 will die before that age (according to the Philippine Society of Medical Oncology in 2012).

It’s scary that aside from age, there increasing factors that causes or triggers breast cancer. Early detection is the key to combat the disease. Ways to prevent the advancement of the disease includes routine self-breast examinations, mammograms and awareness in any changes in the physical for of the breasts and nipples. Also, limiting alcohol intake, no smoking, proper food intake and diet, exercise and avoiding exposure to pollution and radioactive substances are other factors that can lower the risk of contracting the disease.

October marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness month. This is an annual worldwide campaign that targets to increase awareness and knowledge of breast cancer. Everyone is encouraged to join by helping to raise funds, doing voluntary works to help cancer patients and spreading awareness on breast cancer prevention and treatment.
