The problem of breast cancer is increasing in women. In such a situation, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is celebrated internationally from 1 to 31 October, due to which women around the world are made aware of breast cancer. The spread of this cancer is also increasing rapidly in India. Cancer is detected very late in most of the cases. Due to this the disease becomes very fatal.
be aware of the symptoms
Dr Chetan Deshmukh, Medical Oncologist Consultant, Dinanath Mangeshkar Hospital, Pune, said that in recent times it has been seen that about 20 to 30 percent of cancer cases are in the first stage and the rest are in stage two and stage three. If breast cancer is detected in the first or second stage itself, it is possible to treat it at the right time. But knowing about this also depends on your awareness. If you are aware of stage cancer, then by recognizing its symptoms, it can be treated at the right time.
more number of investigations
Dr Anita Ramesh, Senior Medical Consultant, Apollo Specialty Hospital, Chennai, said that the fast-growing western lifestyle is one of the main reasons for the increasing incidence of cancer in India. The number of cancer patients is expected to increase even more in the coming years. We cannot prevent cancer from coming, so breast cancer screening should be better and more women should be screened.
