Breast Cancer Awareness

Our bodies are made up of living cells. Normal body cells grow, divide into new cells and die in an orderly way. Cancer begins when cells in a part of the body start growing uncontrollably and divide, thus creating more abnormal cells.

Cells become cancer cells because of damage to the DNA. A normal cell would repair the damage or die. In cancer cells the DNA is not repaired and the cell doesn't die. Instead it starts reproducing, creating cells the body does not need. The new cells are all abnormal because they contain the damaged DNA.

People can inherit damaged DNA, but mostly those damages happen by accident during the reproduction of the cells, or by something in our environment.

To reduce risk, it is advised that women maintain a healthy weight, be physically active, reduce alcohol consumption and breastfeed their children.

There is a self breast exam, where a women can feel the breast for lumps or abnormalities. Click and zoom in the instruction sheet.

October is the month dedicated to breast cancer awareness. A pink ribbon is the symbol of breast cancer awareness.
The pink ribbon is associated with individual generosity, faith in scientific progress and optimistic attitude.
