Breast Cancers

Breast cancer is the most common cause of death in women, worldwide. Hence it is very important that one does BREAST SELF EXAMINATION (B S E )

The importance of breast self-examinations is more important than ever. Women cannot afford to wait for a diagnosis as a result of a mammogram.

But Breast examinations are important for women and men.

Men checking their breasts for lumps? Yes! Men and women can be diagnosed with Breast Cancer. The numbers of men are much lower then women but none the less, it can happen to men, especially those men who have extra adipose tissue in the breast area creating a breast-like appearance. Those men who do not have this extra tissue would notice changes much easier because a lump would show up on their chest very clearly.

Please remember

  • 80% of breast cancers diagnosed clinically are found by the woman herself.
  • Over the past 70 years there have only been sporadic cases of breast cancer in females under the age of 20 yrs.
  • Less then 1% of all breast tumors in adolescents are cancerous.
  • 98% of breast cancer occurs in women older than 25 yrs.
  • “The only thing worse then knowing, is not knowing.”
