Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in Australia and the second most common cancer to cause death in women.
MWASA held an informative talk on breast cancer for all women ages 40 and above on the 12th of August. Our ladies learnt how to recognize early signs of breast cancer and what measures to take to keep themselves as healthy as possible.
It is important that breast cancer is detected at early stage, even before it can be felt. This greatly improves the treatment options and health outcomes for the individual. Making the effort to exercise daily and making regular appointments with your GP is a good measure to take to spot the signs of breast cancer early.
Thank you to Marita Aldride from Breast Screening SA for coming in for the informative talk; our ladies were definitely very grateful.
