Among females, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the world, according to the announcement of American Cancer Society in September 2018. Almost every woman is aware of this danger and wants to take all the necessary measures.
Breast cancer is one of the common types of cancer, affecting hundreds of thousands of women every year. Its prevalence leads many to look for any possible early signs of breast cancer, while others assume that they don’t have to care about breast cancer awareness since they do not have a history of this disease running in the family.
What is cancer? This seemingly simple question would make a lot of people think a lot once they were asked it. While, due to changing environment and ageing of societies, we meet more and more people who undergo therapy, we often have no idea what is it, apart from the fact that it is deadly or harmful to our body. Every effort to educate about causes, prevention, and treatment seems then a reasonable one and we will attempt to fill out information gaps in those of you who wonder a lot about it but are afraid to ask for basics or have a hard time looking it up online.
It seems sometimes as if only so-called ‘normal’ people have their cancer stories. With breast cancer it is the same, it would be hard for us to name any celebrities who are breast cancer survivors. Despite them participating in breast cancer awareness events, it still doesn’t cross our minds that stars as everybody else on this planet (for those of you who still ask ‘can men get breast cancer?’ – the answer is yes) have their breast cancer stories.
