Nehmeh in breast cancer awareness drive READ MORE

Lynette PayneNov 01, 2018

"This year alone, over 4,500 people in the UAE were diagnosed with cancer, and within that more than 20 per cent were breast cancer cases", said Dr Laila Al Jassmi, founder & CEO of Health Beyond Borders. In such instances, cancer may already have spread to other parts of their bodies, or metastasized, before they are even diagnosed, greatly reducing their likelihood of surviving the disease.

She was addressing the media in Dubai on Monday after launching Breasthetica - a social impact campaign for breast cancer survivors in the UAE providing post-cancer breast aesthetic surgery and raising awareness that there is life after cancer.

This year's focus on raising breast cancer awareness takes on a different twist for Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur. More recent studies with another class of drugs called aromatase inhibitors (exemestane and anastrozole) have shown that these drugs are also very effective in preventing breast cancer.

The new tool will share eight of the most common signs and symptoms of breast cancer, which may end up saving a life. The advertising and awareness events stop, and there are still thousands of women who are fearful of knowing the true health of their breasts. "It's rare that a person living with metastatic breast cancer would have only one side effect to manage".

She said that the project was initially started under the ministry of Health in 2009 with an allocation of Rs. 421 million; however in post devolution, in CDWP meeting held in 2012, the PC-1 of the project was revised to Rs. 225 million and was handed over to the recently-dissolved CADD ministry.

A pink river of more than 10,000 people of all ages flowed through Daytona Beach on October 27 for Making Strides of Volusia-Flagler, an annual walk hosted in cities nationwide by the American Cancer Society to raise money and awareness.

"I never thought of breast cancer, I always thought of something else", he said. Some studies have estimated that 19 percent of screen-detected breast cancers and 20-to-50 percent of screen-detected prostate cancers are over diagnosed.

Surprisingly, little correlation was found between breast cancer and smoking.

I personally have plowed ahead sustained by my faith combined with the ongoing support of my husband, family and friends, big doses of humor and the willingness to wholeheartedly trust and follow the plan of care recommended by my medical professionals.

The article also reports that according to the Illinois Department of Public Health, between 2014 when it began accepting applications for medical marijuana - and September 2017, it had approved 24,000 patients.

The average breast cancer patient will probably go through many appointments, needles, devices, medicines, conversations, as well as times of uncertainty.

"Some days I'm actually grateful".
