Go pink for October!!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an important time to learn about the risks we women face. But while these facts can be frightening, there are reasons for optimism as well. When breast cancer is diagnosed early and treated, survival rates can be near 100 percent. That is why regular screenings and quality treatment are critical to the millions of women who will be diagnosed in their lifetimes.
This year, nearly 300,000 women will hear one of the most frightening things a doctor can say: “You have breast cancer.” Among women, breast cancer remains the most common cancer and the second most deadly. It strikes women of all races, ethnicities, income levels and family backgrounds. In fact, about 85 percent of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of disease.

For preventive care, women should consult their doctor to learn how often to get a mammogram. A mammogram is an X-ray screening that radiologists use to detect breast cancer. It’s also good practice for women to perform self-examinations at least once a month.

Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families and individuals to get involved in efforts to fight breast cancer. If you or someone you know want to learn more about early detection and good breast care, visit the American Cancer Society website at Cancer.org.


May you all live well & stay healthy!!

  4. Really different and great post wajiha.. May Allah protect us and our loved ones from any such disease ameen... Yes we can play our part to support the cause by spreading awareness. Girls should be encouraged to do self examination in early ages... while ladies above 40 should go for a proper medical examination once in 6 months or so....
