Prevention is better than cure

While it is not easy to eradicate all the chances of getting breast cancer, a way of lowering the risk of developing breast cancer is by making lifestyle changes such as drinking less alcohol, being regularly physically active, and maintaining a healthy weight.

It is also important for women aged 50 to get a screening done every year or maximum every 2 years as age is one of the biggest risk factors for getting breast cancer.

Another reason for the high mortality rates in breast cancer is late diagnosis primarily due to lack of awareness and the absence of proper breast cancer screening programme.
