Pink Ribbon
The Pink Ribbon is an international symbol
of breast cancer awareness. Pink ribbons, and the
colour pink in general, identify the wearer or
promoter with the breast cancer brand and
express moral support for women with breast
cancer. Pink ribbons are most commonly seen
during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast Cancer: Awareness
Breast cancer awareness is an effort
to raise awareness and reduce
the stigma of breast cancer through
education on symptoms and
treatment. Supporters hope that
greater knowledge will lead to earlier
detection of breast cancer, which is
associated with higher long-term
survival rates
Breast Cancer: Overview
Lets start with the basics for breast cancer awareness:
 A cluster or group of cancer cells also called as
malignant tumor in the breast is called as “Breast
Cancer”
 Mostly diagnosed in women and in rare cases found in
men as well.
Breast Cancer: Facts
 Most commonly diagnosed cancer in women
 Second leading cause of cancer death among women
 On average, every 2 minute a women is diagnosed with breast cancer and one women
will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes.
Death rate are declining with early detection and increased awareness.
Breast Cancer
Breast Cancer: Risk Factor
Breast Cancer: Symptoms
A lump or mass in the breast
Swelling of all or part of the breast, even if no lump is felt
Skin irritation or dimpling
Breast or nipple pain
Nipple retraction (turning inward)
The nipple or breast skin appears red, scaly, or thickened
Nipple discharge
A lump or swelling in the underarm lymph nodes
Breast Cancer: Symptoms
BREAST CANCER: STAGES
Stage. Breast cancer staging using
the TNM system is based on the size of
the tumour (T), whether or not the
tumour has spread to the lymph nodes (N)
in the armpits, and whether the tumour
has metastasized (M) (i.e. spread to a
more distant part of the body). Larger size,
nodal spread, and metastasis have a larger
stage number and a worse prognosis.
The main stages are: Stage 0 is a pre-
cancerous or marker condition,
either ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS)
or lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS).
BREAST CANCER: STAGES
 Stages 1–3 are within
the breast or regional
lymph nodes.
 Stage 4 is 'metastatic'
cancer that has a less
favourable prognosis
since it has spread
beyond the breast
and regional lymph
nodes.
Breast Cancer: Prevention
The power of prevention of breast cancer include
some lifestyle modifications such as:
Maintaining a healthy weight
Staying physically active
Eating fruits and vegetables
No smoking
Alcohol consumption in limit
Breast Cancer
Breast cancer check-up & complete
body check-up is the solution
The key to leading a happy life & a healthy life is simply
by keeping a check on the body’s functioning by going
for regular health check-ups
Similarly, Sonomammography is a quick, non-
invasive, painless and inexpensive test for breast cancer
detection….
“SO DON’T IGNORE, GET YOUR CHECK-UP DONE TODAY”
