For that much-needed awareness on breast cancer

As the advanced stage of detection leads to poor survival rates leading to huge socioeconomic burden on the person and family who are battling the disease, doctors said that Breast Self-Examination (BSE) and Mammograms are the only accepted modalities around the world to detect in early stage.

By combining the results of the test with information on breast density, the age a woman has children or reaches puberty, women are given a percentage change of developing breast cancer within the next 10 years, and throughout their lifetime. The chance that a woman will die from breast cancer is approximately 1 in 37.

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. The partnership aims at enhancing cancer treatment facilities in the country, through the establishment of Myanmar's first ever clinic for breast cancer treatment.

More recently, more sophisticated targeted treatments are being used to treat cancer that has spread beyond the breast.
