Breast Cancer Month of June

I just returned from my Singapore trip recently to bring my mom for her first ever mammogram. She was as scared as any woman might be when going through something so new and especially after hearing that it was going to be painful and that it was going to hurt when they pressed the equipment and so on and so forth. However, after going through the procedure herself, she was telling me herself, how it DID NOT hurt all all. Bravo Emak!

So how apt is it that I was tagged by sweet smelling Mariuca from Mariuca’s Perfume Gallery to help spread the awareness on the β€˜Breast Cancer Awareness’ month of June. Please help convey the importance of regular examination and early detection of breast cancer in order to catch this disease when it first erupts, maximizing the chance of survival and recovery. So in doing my bit to help spread awareness on the issue of breast cancer to women, here are several facts on breast cancer that everyone should know about.

  • The first sign of breast cancer usually shows up on a woman’s mammogram before it can be felt or any other symptoms are present.
  • Risks for breast cancer include a family history, atypical hyperplasia, delaying pregnancy until after age 30 or never becoming pregnant, early menstruation (before age 12), late menopause (after age 55), current use or use in the last ten years of oral contraceptives, and daily consumption of alcohol.
  • Early detection of breast cancer, through monthly breast self-exam and particularly yearly mammography after age 40, offers the best chance for survival.
  • Ninety-six percent of women who find and treat breast cancer early will be cancer-free after five years.
  • Over eighty percent of breast lumps are not cancerous, but benign such as fibrocystic breast disease.
  • You are ever too young to develop breast cancer! Breast Self-Exam should begin by the age of twenty.

    Dear LadyJava, nangis jer ler kalau ngenangkan Mak I. Adik beradik lain tunjukkan kesedihan ini bila jumpa dia. I tidak, I plan lawak best-best, jumpa dia, kasi kaw-kaw punyia. Dia terbahak-bahak ketawa. Ada ubat dia makan, jadi kini, semakin okay…Syukurlah. Maaplah I tak perasan sangat you balik ke Singapore, jumpa Mak you, I ingatkan perihal Malaysian PR. InsyaAllah, I doakan Mak-Mak kita, menjadi Ibu yang terus boleh masak dan menggemokkan kita.
