Dr Anthony Nsiah -Asare, Director General of Ghana Health Service, has said breast cancer remains a major public health burden for the global community - the cancer considered universal among women worldwide. Previously this information was available by request to the Breast Screening Program.

"We even have a product that can be used so that (cancer patients) don't lose their eyelashes and eyebrows", she said.

TAYLOR COUNTY-October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a worldwide campaign aimed at highlighting the importance of breast awareness, education and research. Pink Ribbon is building a dedicated Breast Cancer Hospital in Lahore to provide one-stop breast cancer management solution to the patients and potential victims.

Jewell said a lot of advances have been made in treating breast cancer, but the biggest change has been to the perception of those who have the disease and the willingness for patients and survivors to talk about their experiences.

"Wear it Pink is great way to come together with friends and family to have fun whilst raising money for Breast Cancer Now's vital research".

It is also recommended that women regularly self-examine their breasts.

Breast density is a measurement of the relative amounts of fibrous, glandular and fatty tissue within the breast. And out of this number, 40 per cent were in stage four while 22 per cent in stage 3. "For someone who has watched family members go through treatment, it's hard to think about that risk for them and the fact that it could be passed down to their children".

Compare that to women without the mutation who have only a 12 percent lifetime risk.

Breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, aside from lung cancer. For me there is NO EXCUSE for not getting screened.

Breast density is determined by a mammogram and is not associated with how large or how lumpy a woman's breasts are during self-examination of the breasts.

Breast cancer is more prevalent in an older demographic, but it's not impossible in younger women. One local organization is helping to bring accessible breast cancer screenings to the county.

She said that if such mentality were erased from their minds they would then would be more aware that early diagnosis and proper treatment are important to ensure that their conditions does not worsen. No referral is required. The Society's 24/7 helpline handled more than 1.34 million calls and live chats from concerned patients and those seeking support, information and resources past year.
