Samina Alvi calls for creating greater awareness amongst women about breast cancer

First Lady Samina Alvi has called for creating greater awareness amongst women about breast cancer.

In a special message on Monday, she said timely diagnosis and treatment can save precious lives. She said we have been trying to sensitize women about symptom, early diagnosis and treatment over the last four years.

The First Lady said around 109 women die every twenty hours due to this cancer in Pakistan. She said breast cancer is the most common cancer among women.

Expressing satisfaction over the recent trends, she said recent data shows patients of first and second stage have started contacting doctors.

She appealed the women to examine their bodies every month and immediately visit a doctor if they find a lump or a change around their breast.
