Conducting Breast Self-Examination
The students at Era's Medical College & Hospital - Lucknow, conducted 'Pink October - Breast Cancer Awareness' on 26th Oct 2016. Targeting the middle aged women. We educated 40 female workers,wardens and female guards in the girls hostel telling about the symptoms and risk factors and demonstrating self breast examination individually.
Breast cancer awareness is an effort to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of breast cancer through education on symptoms and treatment. Supporters hope that greater knowledge will lead to earlier detection of breast cancer, which is associated with higher long-term survival rates, and that money raised for breast cancer will produce a reliable, permanent cure.
