Staying in good health is what everyone works hard to achieve today. No one wishes to be diagnosed with some dreadful conditions such as cancer. However, cancer and especially the breast cancer have become rampant among women and also men. Although research experts say that poor lifestyle is the leading cause of cancerous conditions, there are still other contributors that shouldn’t be ignored. To reduce the rates at which breast cancer is spreading, individuals and organizers have become vibrant in organizing breast awareness programs. During the awareness, people carry placards with a cancer-reduction message and others get a cancer wristband for the same purpose. The main aim of such awareness programs is to make people know what they can do to reduce breast cancer. Here are ways to reduce it:
Know the background of your family
During the awareness program, people are advised to find out whether any of their family members ever suffered from breast cancer. Doctors indicate that breast cancer can run through the genes and affect other healthy young siblings of the family if the right measures are not put in place. If any of your nephews, nieces, cousins, uncles, aunts, siblings and grandparents has breast cancer, you may need to get regular check-ups to ensure early treatment in case it is detected. During the cancer awareness day, many people march on the streets wearing rubber wrist bands to make others aware of this deadly disease.
