Panaji: October month marks the most important campaign of ‘Breast Cancer Awareness’ month to educate people about breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer. This disease has become a major problem all across the world including India.

As per WHO, breast cancer accounts for 2.09 million cases and 627000 deaths globally. It is the most common cancer in women in India and accounts for 14% of all cancers in women. It can occur at any age but the incidence rates in India begin to rise in the early thirties and peak at ages 50-64 years.

Commencing the breast cancer awareness month, state based renowned oncologist Dr Shekhar Salkar in a tweet stated that although breast cancer is curable but lack of awareness and delay in diagnosis it becomes fatal.

He also added that change in lifestyle, delayed age of childbearing, reduced breastfeeding, up the risk.

“Good news about breast cancer is it’s curable if detected timely. Unfortunately, mostly patients reach Oncologists by the time their disease has spread to distant sites. Change in lifestyle, delayed age of childbearing, reduced breastfeeding, up the risk. #BreastCancerAwareness,” he tweeted.

Lifestyle changes are shown to be important in the prevention of breast cancer. Diet, physical activity, smoking, alcohol use, and vitamin and mineral use are reportedly key factors influencing the risk of breast cancer among women.
