Early detection of breast cancer at home can prevent it

Like the world, now a new trend is being seen in India regarding breast cancer. Cases of this disease have started increasing in the country even among women around the age of 30. At the same time, women above 50 years are already in the grip of this disease. In such a situation, it is worrying now that young women and young women are in the grip of breast cancer. Due to lifestyle, stress, running away and carelessness of women towards their own body, breast cancer is coming less in rural women while the most in urban women. Therefore, experts say that to prevent this, women themselves have to be aware.

Dr. Ramesh Sarin, Surgical Oncologist at Delhi-based Apollo Hospital, says that in a city like India, where women’s health comes at the back with very low expenditure on health services, there is no open talk about diseases like breast cancer. This is the reason why women do not pay attention to the symptoms of this disease and refuse to express it even if they have the disease, so the disease progresses and becomes fatal. If women pay a little attention to their body and become aware, then it is quite easy to recognize this disease. Early diagnosis is most effective in eliminating this disease as soon as possible.

Dr. Sarin says that since breast cancer is increasing now and its treatment is also expensive, then women should catch this disease in the beginning, so that they can get cheaper and better treatment for it. Since mammograms done to check for breast cancer are a bit expensive, they can check their breasts at home using the methods prescribed by experts. They themselves can easily detect breast cancer or any other disease by examining the breasts once a month. This is called breast self examination.
