Breast cancer. Many women don't consider it to be a threat, but it is a lot more common than you think.

 

It is undoubtedly the most common cancer in women worldwide. Almost 1.7 million new cases of breast cancer were diagnosed in 2012, and it is known that approximately one in eight women have the likelihood of developing invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. In Hong Kong 2015, out of all new cancers diagnosed in women, 26.1% are accounted for breast cancer. According to reports, breast cancer is recognized as the sixth leading cause of cancer death in Hong Kong.

 

So, what can be done about this situation? Being aware of the occurrence of breast cancer plays an important role in promoting the need for self-checking, so that women and men alike can identify the symptoms and seeking the right medical assistance, early diagnosis and treatment. October is classified as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, where major breast cancer charities aim to shed the light on the knowledge about breast cancer to the general public. During this month, they aim to raise funds for further research on the cause and prevention of breast cancer. Wearing pink or donning a pink ribbon signifies your awareness and support in this notion.
