Breast Cancer Awareness Day - Your Wake-up Call

Feb 19, 2008
Due to increasing awareness about breast cancer, a lot of women diagnosed with the disease in the early stages of the cancer and still alive and are doing well. The number of deaths because of breast cancer has fallen steeply, and is still going down, owing to better availability and success of treatments and therapy than a few years back.

Today, there are a huge number of breast cancer cases, and due to advanced technology, we have been able to fight a disease several people are ailed with across the world. Our work does not end here, and constant improvement should be made to alleviate the pain of the families who are adversely affected by their relations' condition. The most common cancer among women is breast cancer.

Since 1986, the number of deaths occurring for women due to breast cancer has fallen, and this is mainly due to regular check-ups, efficient breast examination and proper screenings. These tools are a great dependable measure of diagnosing early cancer, and can lower death rates further. We all know about them, but we need to work harder, spread awareness, to prevent more women from getting the cancer, and enabling even more to survive it.

Certain preventive measures for breast cancer should be adopted by all women. Post adulthood, every woman should get mammograms done once in three years, and the frequency should increase with age, since age makes you more prone to breast cancer. If, ever, you have any queries or doubts regarding breast cancer, the best person to inform you on it is your doctor. Remember to always go to a professional for your breast examination. Doctors will tell you when to seek medical advice with what may seem like a symptom, and when to recognize an abnormal change in your breasts. If you're not sure of a change or sign, it is best to still tell your doctor about it.

It is always best to be well informed about the normal and aberrant conditions of your breasts. You may often suddenly find something wrong, and there may be nothing worrying about it, you should take that as a sign and make sure you eliminate the possibility of it being breast cancer. Lumps, in both women and men, are often benign and do not develop cancer cells, but knowledge is never wasted.

Research is of great importance when it comes to breast cancer, since the causes for breast cancer are a hugely dark area today. There is no sure reason as to why some women can develop cancer while others don't; we need to work harder to help these women and know every reason, to prevent more men and women from getting the disease.
