Breast Cancer

Just the word 'cancer' can be frightening, and makes some people think of death. But what is it, really? What happens in your body and why is it so hard to diagnose and treat this disease?

Diagnosis

It is very important for you, if you have found anything abnormal or if there is any noticeable change since the last examination, you must consult your doctor without any delay.

Treatment

There are many different types of breast cancer, so the treatment is not the same for every woman. The treatment of breast cancer is determined by various factors.

Pakistan has the highest rate of breast cancer in Asia with every 9th woman at high risk of getting the disease at some point in her life. Unfortunately lots of cultural and social taboos along with myths and misconceptions are associated with breast cancer contributing to high mortality rates as most of women report at stage III and IV, thus reducing the chances of survival. Fortunately, breast cancer can be detected and cured at a very early stage.

Survivors: Words of Inspiration

Now that I have gone through all this pain, I think that if I had detected breast cancer at an early stage and decided to go for an immediate treatment, I would not have experienced all this suffering. You should self-examine your breasts regularly and if you feel any kind of abnormality, just consult a doctor.

Mrs. Razia

Every woman must have decent knowledge about breast cancer and Pink Ribbon is continuously working on it. It is a great cause to aware people about their health. If I had this knowledge about Breast Cancer, its types and treatment before, I wouldn’t have gone through the mental suffering that I went through due to my ignorance.

Mrs. Shazia

When a woman goes through breast cancer treatment, emotional and psychological support is your Hope. Especially when you listen about other women who had defeated Breast Cancer, it gives you true strength and courage. it would have never been possible for me to defeat Breast Cancer without the support of my family and doctors.
