Local man uses his story to raise awareness for male breast cancer

According to a report by Liaquat National Hospital (LNH), approximately 83,000 cases of breast cancer are reported in Pakistan every year, out of which around 40,000 women do not survive this deadly disease. Despite this, a number of women are still unaware of the signs, which they ignore, and it leads the cancer to spread. As well as lumps, women should check for a change in the shape or size of the breast, a puckering or dimpling of the skin, a discharge from the nipples, change of nipple shape, redness or a rash on the skin or around the nipples, swelling in the armpits or collar bone area.

The study, "Osteopontin and Premalignant Breast Lesions", appears in the October 24, 2018 issue of the British Journal of Cancer. Golden Rock Cancer Awareness Foundation (GRCAF) was also represented with a booth.

If you're a woman in your 20s or 30s, talk to your health care professional about Clinical Breast Exams (CBEs); if you have a family history of cancer, be sure to discuss other screening options.

"Fear is not going to help you because if you become afraid of the unknown because you assume it is just that, or even if you get a diagnosis so you are afraid of doing anything, the cancer is not afraid; it is going to move on".

Other clinical trials are looking at non-hormonal drugs for breast cancer reduction.

Earlier, Chairperson of Kwara NAWOJ, Mrs Ayobola Olupinla, said the high death rate attributed to breast cancer informed the reason for the seminar.

SMG3's mission is to reduce the incidence of breast cancer, decrease mortality rates, and assist the individuals and families of those who have been impacted by breast cancer.

"Speaking to the Media after thousands of people including organized groups, politicians, school children, members of the Ghana Cancer Board hit the principal streets of Tamale in the Northern Region to create awareness of Breast Cancer under the theme" There is hope for a cure: "Togetherwe are stronger than cancer, Join Us". "The value lies in being able to examine invasive potential", says Weber, adding that prognostic biomarkers inform on the probable disease course while predictive biomarkers provide upfront information regarding how likely a patient is to benefit from a specific treatment, and hence may guide the choice of available therapies. "It's not too late to donate to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Greater Chattanooga".

Gorski continues, "Giving back is an integral part of our brand DNA, and we are excited to bring SMG3's "Be The Good" mantra to life outside of the four walls of our office".

Aibinuomo said that breast cancer could affect both sexes.

Jill Fricker, CEO of Komen Colorado, said people should also consider the systematic issues surrounding health disparities.
