Dimapur, November 2: Phek District administration and District Level Centre for Women – Mahila Shakti Kendra (BBBP) Phek observed Breast Cancer Awareness Month on the theme “Give Hope, Save Lives” starting from 1st week of October to 31st October.
The campaign was to inform people about the importance of early treatment and diagnosis of breast cancer to control the progression.
According to WHO, breast cancer is by far the most common cancer in women worldwide, both in developed and developing countries. Lack of knowledge and information about the early signs and symptoms makes the condition life-threatening.
