October month is declared as the national breast cancer awareness month. The main mission is to save lives by increasing awareness of the disease. I wrote this post as a part of Blogadda's online breast cancer awareness campaign.
What is a breast cancer ?
Breast cancer is a malignant tumour that grows in one or both of the breasts. It usually develops in the ducts or known as the milk producing area in the breast. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women.
Types of breast cancer
Breast cancer is divided into two main catagories - noninvasive cancer and invasive cancer. It is known that estrogen and progesterone play a role in developing breast cancer. In breast cancer, estrogen causes doubling of cancer cells in every 36hours.
Breast cancer screening and early detection is very helpful. Early detection results into earlier diagnostics. I believe one day there will be less breast cancers and more birthdays. Many of my friends and myself are supporting the cause by running or donating. Hope it brings a smile on many faces this year who will be saying bye to their breast cancer.
Lets all support the campaign in this month and bring change in our lives. For more information about breast cancer you can go through NBCA website.
Indusladies. com is conducting an online breast cancer awareness campaign during the month of october. As a part of the campaign there are awareness quiz, fundraising, prevention videos, discounts on mammography etc. I am spreading their message through my blog.
Lets say bye bye to breast cancer.
