Breast cancer is 100% beatable and curable.
Early detection and diagnosis.
The sure way to check if you have breast cancer would be to go for a mammogram, it may detect breast cancer from up to 2 years before the tumour can be felt. A new device called Breastlight can assist you in detecting breast cancer at an early stage within the comfort of your home during those periods between one mammogram and the next.
Risk and preventions of breast cancer.
Believe it or not a health diet can actually lower the risk of breast cancer. By eating a lot of fruits and vegetables and keeping your alcohol consumption low, you lower your chances of getting breast cancer. Keeping your weight in check, being physically active, breastfeeding and avoiding birth control pills can all prevent your chances of getting breast cancer.
Always remember you are not alone. There is a way forward and you can beat it. Keep a positive and clear mind. Speak to someone about what you are going through and most importantly get professional help, someone who can explore all your options and help you every step of the way.
