October does not only represent autumn but is also Breast cancer awareness month. Yes, there is a whole month dedicated to one disease that can be treated if discovered early enough. The Breast Cancer Awareness Month, marked in countries across the world every October, helps to increase attention and support for the awareness, early detection and treatment as well as palliative care of this disease.

As there is not sufficient knowledge on the causes of breast cancer, 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.

Breast self-exam is the first line of defence for detecting breast cancer. It should be performed once a month starting when a woman is in her teens. Early detection can mean a better chance of survival. 

Take a couple of minutes, watch the video and start self-examining today if you are not doing this regularly already.

Live your breast life!
