Breast cancer prevention and awareness program is designed to educate the women about the risk factors and how lifestyle changes can reduce one’s personal risk
In Pakistan 1 in 9 women are at risk of developing breast cancer and most of them present at a late stage although early diagnosis means better outcomes after treatment. Early detection means that the disease is curable in most cases. Unfortunately most of our patients present late
This program reaches out to women of all strata especially those population groups who would not be able to seek help and advice. We tell them about the role of lifestyle factors in reducing their risk of breast cancer, teach them breast self-examination. Clinical breast examination is carried out by expert doctors. We are hoping to start a mobile mammography service soon.
