Instead, it means an ongoing fight and struggle against an opponent that does not rest.

Throughout this month, Porter Health Care System is offering various activities to help raise awareness of breast cancer and the need for screening and early detection.

A gene test informing women how likely they are to develop breast cancer could soon be used on high-risk groups.

UBF and KIMS-Ushalakshmi Centre for Breast Diseases, which completed 10 years, has undertaken many unique initiatives to empower people about importance of early detection of breast cancer. Reports released by the World Health Organization (WHO) state that cancer is one of the foremost cause behind the increasing mortality rates across the globe, based on the grounds of which the Parkway Cancer Centre has declared its agreement with the Centre for Better Living (CBL) Medical Centre and some of most noteworthy breast surgeons from Singapore. Over a span of almost 25 years, the risk of death from breast cancer dropped 38 percent, says the American Cancer Society. Further studies are needed to determine the role these organisms may play in breast cancer. In Myanmar, the rate of breast cancer occurrence is exceptionally high, and in addition, the lack of sufficient treatment facilities has also reflected negatively on the diagnosis.

Having the mutation can tell you a lot about your risk of developing cancer, and some women who test positive will opt for preventive measures such as "mastectomy, or oophorectomy [removal of the ovaries], or increased screening with MRI or mammogram", says Fangjian Guo, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor in the department of obstetrics and gynecology at University of Texas Medical Branch.

Later this month, on October 26, the Lewis Hall Singletary Oncology Center will host its sixth annual Pink Affair, its benefit fashion show with local cancer survivors.

Among those who participated in the event were breast cancer survivors, their parents, students and interested youngsters. Some are fighting against it.

Help more women celebrate a triumph over breast cancer.

The Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) test will initially be available for patients having tests at St Mary's Hospital and Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester for BRCA1 and 2 gene mutations, with a family history of breast cancer.

So now when you see pink, think of ways to beat breast cancer once and for all.
