October is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month: How good is your breast health?

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Important things you should keep in mind

Breast cancer awareness month (BCAM) is also known as National Breast Cancer Awareness month in America. October is a breast cancer awareness month which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.

Still many people in India don’t have the knowledge about Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer is considered as the second type of common cancer in women. Every 1 in 8 women born today has a possibility of getting detected with breast cancer at some point in her life. Well, Breast cancer is treatable if detected in early stage.

Know Your Lemons

To detect the cancer at an early stage, it is important to have knowledge for the same. A lot of people are currently heart pictures for create awareness about breast cancer among women, but will the heart picture impart any knowledge-‘NO’, right? So it is important to talk more and more about it.

A woman has penned down her experience, who was detected with Breast cancer:

She wrote that a cute heart won’t help anyone to know about the Breast Cancer, she further mentioned in her article, In December 2015 someone shared a picture of Breast Cancer symptoms or how it looks like, she suddenly got to know, and she is also a patient of Breast Cancer of fourth stage.

How Breast cancer looks like

She said instead of sharing something cute which doesn’t help anyone, it is good to share proper information about the disease.

Even if you don’t have any idea about the Breast Cancer you can have a look on the image above and can get a slight idea of how the Breast cancer looks like (not feels like maybe). This is the creative idea by the Worldwide Breast Cancer organization to spread the awareness with the twist of lemons. If you can closely watch the image, you can see the manipulated photos of lemons which give the hint of types of Breast Cancer.

Share it and spread awareness!
