Timely screen­ing for breast cancer can treat and cure

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

It is yet an­other World Breast Cancer Aware­ness Month. Dur­ing this pe­riod, women all over the world are en­cour­aged to go for cancer screen­ing for early de­tec­tion. Breast cancer hap­pens to be among the fastest killer dis­eases among women glob­ally. And the mod­ern life­style is un­doubt­edly a risk fac­tor that has in­creased the like­li­hood of women get­ting the dis­ease. Un­for­tu­nately, not many go for timely and fre­quent screen­ing. Do­ing so will go a long way in reach­ing out to as many women as pos­si­ble and fight­ing cancer.
