Dr. L. Gojendro said that Breast Cancer is a kind of disease which mainly causes women of age between 35 to 50 years and if we are able to examine the disease at the early stage, then it can be treated to fully recover.
Thus, womenfolks need to examine their breast to timely detect the breast cancer disease and let’s try to make Bishnupur District a Breast Cancer free district, Dr. L. Gojendro asserted.
Community Officer Health and Wellness Center Phubala T. Helena felicitated 3 breast cancer survivor women with gifts and demonstrated how to examine breast cancer by ourselves.
