Why Early Detection Is Important
As mentioned earlier, breast cancer is highly treatable if you spot it early. Unfortunately, most Filipinas learn of their diagnosis in the advanced stages of the disease, when the signs and symptoms are already present and only aggressive and expensive treatment might work.
With screening, early detection is possible. This means you can spot cancer when it’s still easy to treat and you have more options for treatment. Most importantly, treating breast cancer as early as possible can reduce its impact and save lives.
