Going Pink for October

By  | 

 

October is a special month for us girls because it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s an annual effort across the world to  to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer

Adult women of all ages are encouraged to perform breast self-exams at least once a month.  Johns Hopkins Medical center states,

“Forty percent of diagnosed breast cancers are detected by women who feel a lump, so establishing a regular breast self-exam is very important.”

While mammograms can help you to detect cancer before you can feel a lump, breast self-exams help you to be familiar with how your breasts look and feel so you can alert your healthcare professional if there are any changes (Via http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/breast-self-exam)

Here are some of the events and campaigns that are taking place in Malaysia to support this cause:
