The experts said that breast cancer can be easily cure if it will be cited earlier and for that I'm gonna share some mustknowabout BREAST CANCER...
Here it is:

  • Year 2000, 182,800 women was breast cancer victim.
  • At same year, 42,000 was killed by the disease.
  • 1 out of 8 or 12.6% of women are having breast cancer.
  • The greater the age of women the nearer she is on the disease.
  • 1 woman every 13 minutes was killed by breast cancer.
  • 77% who's having breast cancer was 50 years old and above.
  • Year 2000, 1,400 men were believe carrying the disease and 400 of them died... (SHOCKS!!! even men have it...)
  • Inspite of the fear on breast cancer, almost 1.7 million women survived on the said disease at United States.
  • Breast cancer was the number 1 reason why women died at the early age of 15 - 54 years old.
  • The disease can be detected by mammogram.
  • The risk of breast cancer included family history, long labor upon giving birth, early menstruation(younger than 12 years old and below), late menopausal(older than 55 years old and above), over using contraceptives and always drinking alcohol.
  • Early consultation like breast self-exam, mammogram test(as early as 40 years old and above) and etc.
  • Breast cancer doesn't care if you're old or young, so as early as 20 years old take the breast self-exam.
