BREAST CANCER

8 Nov

–AWARENESS is the first defence. 

I read an article in The Hindu recently and felt that I must write about breast cancer.

It has been a fearsome dagger hanging on many women in the recent past.

Women who are have had premature menopause, obesity,and a familly history are more likely to develop breast cancer .For many  people the word that scares  is ‘surgery’.ther are other options(-depending on the stage though).

The author has dealt very well with financial implications. She has also warned readers about the possibilities of patients being shortchanged.

One can read about it in detail here..
