Heartbeat : Breast Cancer Awareness Month

People participate in a QCS event to raise awareness of breast cancer

Apart from breast cancer, researchers are also focusing on using their current study to reduce the chances of developing lung, prostate, colorectal, ovarian, and uterine cancers among people. The R.E.D. Rose Program addresses the need in our community for quality breast cancer screenings and treatment services for those who are uninsured or underinsured.

We help eligible, uninsured women get free mammograms, and we are here to encourage every woman to get their mammogram. Men aged above 60 are suffering from breast cancer.

More than 70, 000 women succumb to breast cancer every year - a woman dies of breast cancer every 10 minutes in India. "So do your self exams (but also) get a mammogram". The tests will be targeted on women with a family history of the disease.

Contrary to the western world where breast cancer is common after the age of 50 years, the highest incidence of breast cancer in India is between the ages of 40 and 50 years, said Raghu Ram.


Too often, discussions women have with their doctors about the best treatment options don't include a conversation about the employment impact, said Dr. Benjamin Smith, of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

The mammogram detected stage one breast cancer, they said, adding that she was surprised at the result, because she had the habit of doing a self-examination during baths and had never felt any lumps. They discovered that healthy breast tissue contains more of the bacterial species Methylobacterium.

Lack of awareness and absence of an organized national breast cancer screening programme are the main reasons accounting for late presentation. Surgery, hair loss, radiation, chemotherapy and medication can all take its toll.

But the new test can further narrow down a woman's risk level, allowing her to make a more informed choice about whether to have preventative surgery.
