Breast Cancer Awareness Month in Qatar

Breast Cancer awareness month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. Here are the events organised by various organisations in Qatar to mark ‘pink month’.

All About Breast Cancer Screening

Breast Care Clinic Hamad Medical Corporation Mammogram Breast Cancer Awareness Month Qatar

Early detection is key to achieving the best possible outcome from breast cancer. A screening mammogram is a simple, non-invasive exam that can help detect potential breast cancer at the earliest possible time.

In addition to being breast aware and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, it is recommended that women begin regular breast cancer screenings from the age of 45. Breast cancer screening is for women without any signs and symptoms.
