Prevention is Better than Cure
A simple, regular preventive health checkup can save a person from all the trauma, physical pain, mental agony and huge financial setback; and that too at a very low cost.
Experts believe that at Stage 1, breast cancer is definitely curable and at Stage 2, it is highly manageable. However due to poor utilization and lack of awareness of preventive healthcare, most patients do not undergo relevant tests regularly, till the symptoms began to appear prominently and they reach stage 3 or 4, a difficult phase to treat.
Stay a Step Ahead of Breast Cancer
