How personalised breast cancer screening could save lives and reduce unneeded mammograms

Elsie Hlaba Dikeledi Mokoke and Aniki Letima eat after the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign

This will give 85,000 women across Europe between the ages of 40 and 70 either the existing mammogram test or the new personalised test and follow their progress for four years.

As part of her plan, Musgrove has started completing an MRI of her breast six months following her annual mammograms.

The campaign aimed to generate awareness of the illness and to inform students and staff about early detection, a major role in the treatment of breast cancer. The High-risk Breast Cancer Program provides a more comprehensive early detection program to women who are considered at high-risk for developing breast cancer. What this means for those who want to support breast cancer survivors is that family and friends should be open to giving different types of support, as suggested by the American Cancer Society and Komen Foundation, such as listening when they want to talk about how they feel, or driving them to a doctor's appointment. Up through November 15, Novartis will donate $15 to Stage IV breast cancer research up to $200,000.

The mother of one said she discovered in 2007 that she had breast cancer.

The Hereditary Cancer and High-Risk Screening Programme is an example of a multidisciplinary service that aims to achieve excellence in cancer care through offering prevention and personalised medicine and supports the National Cancer Framework 2017-2022 "Achieving Excellence in Cancer Care: A vision for 2022". Additional recent social media hashtags that support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month include: #MoreforMBC or #ResearchIsTheReason, but the organizations funding these hashtags are no longer funding posts. The researchers studied associations with tumor characteristics and survival outcomes for patients with rare protein-truncating variants (PTVs) in 31 cancer predisposition genes, including BRCA1/2. "The timeframe of this process can be lengthy for a patient diagnosed with cancer and the delays providing less chance of receiving the necessary treatment in a timely manner".

The success of this campaign has flowed through monthly awareness campaigns to date including Pinktober.

Out of the 5,099 breast cancer patients analyzed, 597 carried PTVs. It is important to check your breast regularly.

In the same context, actress Mona Zaki later commented on her official Instagram account "I accepted the "beet it" challenge from Nardin Faraj; we are now in the end of the month of October, the month to raise awareness against breast cancer.Encourage women and try it out yourself!"

So the initiative by Zimpapers, of raising awareness through the Cancer Walk remains of paramount importance in fighting all forms of cancers and Dr Makarawo believes such initiatives by corporates are important in bridging the knowledge gap.
