October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Bands

Breast cancer is an ever increasing problem, both in South Africa and in other developed nations. According to our Department of Health, It is the most common cancer among white and Asian women, and the second most common among black and coloured women. And men, you’re not immune either – the incidence of breast cancer among men is also on the rise.

The good news is, the 5 year survival rate if it´s caught early (i.e., before it spreads beyond the breast), is now 98%.
