Summary
International Breast Cancer Day aims to raise awareness and promote woman´s access to timely and effective controls, diagnoses and treatments.

Every October 19th, the International Day against Breast Cancer is celebrated with the aim of raising awareness about the prevention and early diagnosis of this disease that affects millions of women and men around the world.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), breast cancer is the most common tumor in women in both developed and developing countries. A new case is diagnosed every 30 seconds.

This pathology could be cured if detected in time, so it is essential to carry out periodic reviews and be attentive to possible symptoms. Breast self-examination, mammography, and ultrasound are some of the tools that can help identify abnormalities in breast tissue.
