Breast Cancer Awareness Month
|Date:||1st October 2021|
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and provides an opportunity for us all to focus on breast cancer and its impact on those affected by the disease in our community.
Between 2012-2016 the Seychelles National Cancer Registry recorded 155 cases of breast cancer, making it the second most common cancer in Seychelles, as well as the most common type of cancer among women.
On average, there has been one new case every month until 3 years ago, when numbers started to increase.
Take the time this month to find out what you need to know about breast awareness and share this important information with your family, friends and colleagues.
