BREAST CANCER AWARENESS & EXAMINATION, ILE-IFE, OSUN STATE


About what happened amid the weekend. I'm happy that the Breast Cancer Awareness and examination was a win, an immense accomplishment at that. We got ready for forty women on account of the venue  and more than seventy women showed up, I was stunned at those numbers. 

Dr (Mrs) Fadare
Dr (Mrs) Fadare talked broadly on breast cancer. She discussed how breast cancer develops quickly and wildly. 

* 1 out of each 8 ladies will have breast cancer. 

* Breast self-examination ought to be done. The best time to check your breast is seven days after menstruation. It ought to be done frequently 

* Getting to know your breast is vital, that way you rapidly find any irregularities. 

* Prompt and quick discovery is better. Speak out instantly you find anything unusual on your breast. 

* It Can be hereditary. It influences both male and female. 

* Breast Cancer is not a death sentence, surgery can be carried out.

Raise your left hand, move the pads of your fingers around your right breast gently in small circular motions covering the entire breast area and armpit. Use light, medium, and firm pressure. Squeeze the nipple; check for discharge and lumps.
