Action for breast cancer Foundation have released this video and we really thought we should share and encourage you to share with others…
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women but it can also affect men. In Malta, 343 adults are diagnosed with cancer a year, 3 of whom are men.
While the causes are not yet fully understood, research shows that you can lower the risk of developing the disease by minimising lifestyle and environmental risk factors and through breast screening.
“If you are an adult woman we encourage you to perform breast self-exams at least once a month. These infographics show you what to look for when performing such an exam, but it also highly suggested that you do regular mammograms and/or ultrasounds to detect breast cancer at an early stage. Should you notice anything suspicious during your self-exam, including a change in the shape or size of your breast, an inverted nipple or pain and itching in your breast area, consult your family doctor immediately.“
