What is breast cancer?
Breast cancer is a disease caused by the abnormal growth of cells in the body. These begin to take shape in the breasts, eventually forming a large lump or mass of tissue called a breast tumor.
Breast cancer is the world’s most commonly-diagnosed cancer and the second most common cancer in Cambodia.
Why is a breast exam important?
Regular examinations, or screenings, can reveal early signs and symptoms of any abnormalities. Early detection makes for increased chances of treatment, recovery and ultimately saves lives.
At what age should you screen for breast cancer?
Breast self-examinations or medical screenings should be performed from the age of 20 onwards.
