Breast cancer awareness campaign

Dapat mesej drp nrina untuk memanjangkan tag berupa info ini...khusus untuk kaum wanita. .. (Sebenarnya, breast cancer bukan hanya boleh terkena kepada kaum wanita sahaja, kaum lelaki juga tidak terkecuali!) Saya nampak dah ramai yg menayangkan imej kempen nih; 'the pink sisterhood' kat blog masing2. Jadinya, saya tak khususkan kpd sapa2... jika belum terima kempen nih, sudi2kanlah panjangkan kempen nih... :).






PLEASE SAVE US

Did you know that breast cancer afflicts an estimated figure of more than ONE MILLION women in the world each year and is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths among women worldwide, second to lung cancer?


Did you know that of the ONE MILLION afflicted women, almost 45% of those women live in developing countries?

Did you know that of the new cases of female breast cancer reported in Malaysia in 2003, 64% of these cases were women between the ages of 40 to 60 years old?

Did you know that Chinese women seemed to be at greatest risk, with an incidence of 59.7 per 100,000; followed by Indian women (55.8 per 100,000) and Malay women (33.9 per 100,000)?

Did you know that early detection and getting appropriate medical attention can help save lives? So it is unfortunate in Malaysia that nearly 40% of the new cases identified each year were already in the very advanced stages of the disease.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the world, affecting one in 19 women in Malaysia. As with most cancers, the earlier breast cancer is detected and diagnosed, the better the chances of successful treatment.

Factors You Can’t Control

Gender
Genes
Race
Age
Menopausal status
Drugs and treatments
Menses onset
Family Health History

Lifestyle Factors You Can Control

Pregnancy
Breastfeeding
Hormone Replacement Therapy use
Alcohol
Smoking
Diet
Exercise
Weight

Whether you are at low or high risk, you have many options to lower your risk. When it’s found at an early stage, breast cancer can effectively be treated, and there are several ways to help prevent recurrence. Take responsibility for your breast health.

w'salam kak tie... alhamdulillah sihat2 aje.. pasal isu nih, yg penting, kita sendiri yg kena check diri kita dulu...sekali sekala buat la self breast examination...kot2 ada lump yg luar biasa... tak semestinya ada lump tu bermakna ada kanser.. kadang2 lump yg tak bahaya pon. yg penting, detect drp awal..

reena, zaman sekrg nih, macam2 kanser ada.. yg muda pon ramai yg kena.... sama2 kita cuba merendahkan risiko untuk diri kita...ealy detection is important!!
