  1. Breast cancer is currently the most common cancer in Nigeria.
  2. 1 out of every 8 women is at risk of having breast cancer and a little below 1% of men are at risk of developing breast cancer.
  3. It is estimated that over 20 women die daily from breast cancer in Nigeria, usually due to late presentation.
  4. If your mother, sister or daughter (first degree female relative) was diagnosed with breast cancer, your risk of developing breast cancer is 2-4 times more.
  5. Women diagnosed to have breast cancer in one breast are 3-4 times more likely to develop a new cancer in the other breast or in a different part of the same breast.
  6. Women diagnosed with certain benign (not cancer) breast conditions (e.g. complex fibroadenoma) are at a higher risk of developing breast cancer.
  7. Women that start menstruating before 12 are at risk of developing breast cancer later in life and women that go through late menopause are also at risk.
  8. Alcohol consumption (Hmmmmmm, Alcohol again!) increases the risk of developing breast cancer.
  9. Women that are overweight and obese are at a higher risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer.
  10. Why should you examine your breast regularly? Because most breast cancers are palpable, you would be able to detect any abnormalities in your breast. Examine your breast every month a few days after your period. It can be easily treated if detected early.

 

Have you examined your breast today?

Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will be cured from HERPES virus again. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HERPES) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR CLIMENT helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is drclimentscott just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on ( Thank you and God bless you Doc climent Scott. drclimentscott@gmail.com drclimentscott@gmail.com contact him on his whats-app number here +2347036879479 +2347036879479.
