October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
13th October 2020
October is #breastcancerawareness month.
All around the world, people get involved to raise awareness and show support for those affected by breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer among women, impacting 2.1 million women each year, and causing the greatest number of cancer-related deaths among women. (WHO)
Care Wise, part of the LabLogic Group, has been committed to developing products to help in the fight against breast cancer by manufacturing the C-Trak gamma probe systems since 1986. The original C-Trak systems were used in the development of sentinel node biopsy procedures which were a revolution in the treatment of breast cancer.
To improve breast cancer outcomes for women around the world, cancer must be detected in its early stages through early diagnosis and screening. That’s why it’s important to raise awareness of checking breasts for lumps on a regular basis - check out the video from @Breast Cancer UK here: https://www.breastcanceruk.org.uk/checkyourbreasts/
