With 1 in 29 women in South Africa being diagnosed with breast cancer, it's no wonder that cancer is one of the most serious diseases women face!
That's why we wanted to share some tips from CANSA - The Cancer Association of South Africa - to help increase your odds for breast cancer prevention:
· A breast self-examination (BSE) should be done at least once a month.
· Get an annual mammogram or do a clinical breast examination at any CANSA Care Centre.
· Limit alcohol consumption. Your risk goes up by 7% with each drink you have per day.
· Follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
