Rehman Medical Institute (RMI) hosted a vital breast cancer awareness seminar on Thursday, highlighting the critical need for increased awareness and early detection in the fight against breast cancer.
The seminar featured prominent healthcare professionals and experts dedicated to addressing the prevalence of breast cancer in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The event was graced by the presence of Dr. Safoora Shahid, a distinguished guest of honor, along with several notable participants, including CEO RMI Shafique Ur Rahman, Director RMI Zeba Rahman, Dean RMI Dr. Shahzad Bukhtiar, Professor Dr. Abdul Wahid, Dr. Jamshed Ali, Roohi Zahir Shah, Dr. Amjad Ali, Prof. Dr. Mah Munir Khan, and Dr. Anam Khan.
Their collective expertise and dedication highlighted the significance of the issue at hand. During their presentations, experts underscored the alarming lack of awareness as the primary driving force behind the increasing incidence of breast cancer.
They shed light on the absence of a screening system in the underprivileged districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, emphasizing that this absence has contributed to the continuous rise in the number of breast cancer cases.
Experts also stressed the utmost importance of timely screening as a vital tool in the battle against breast cancer. They emphasized that breast cancer remains the leading cause of death among women, but it is treatable, particularly if detected in its first and second stages. They urged the urgent need for extensive public awareness campaigns and the establishment of screening systems to gain control over this life-threatening disease.
