Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide. Therefor it is important to know how to prevent and how to detect it. Women who are diagnosed in the early stages have 90% chances of recovering fully.
In addition to checkups at the hospital women should examine themselves regularly to detect any changes. Women at the age of 50 or above should have mammography imaging done every two years or more frequently if they have a history of cancer in the family.
The best way to prevent breast cancer from developing is adopting a healthy lifestyle, as inactivity and overweight are increasing the risk of various types of cancer. We all can be more active in our daily life by going for a walk, taking the stairs instead of using the lift. Try to include 30 minutes of physical exercise into your routine at least 5 times a week.
Regarding your diet, eat your fruit and vegetable. Avoid high sugar, fatty or processed food.
We care for your well-being.
