Kanser Payudara: Periksa Sendiri Untuk Kesan Awal

Oleh Ainul Huda Mohamed Saaid



 



KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- Hasil rawatan akan lebih positif sekiranya kanser payudara dapat dikesan lebih awal.



Malangnya, menurut Persatuan Kanser Kebangsaan Malaysia (NCSM), 43 peratus kes kanser payudara hanya dikesan apabila ia sudah mencapai peringkat akhir, iaitu ketiga dan keempat.



“Perkara ini amat dikesalkan kerana kanser payudara boleh dirawat dan mempunyai hasil yang positif sekiranya dikesan lebih awal.



“Kami ingin menggesa kaum wanita supaya sedar akan hakikat ini dan proaktif dalam mendapatkan nasihat perubatan sekiranya mereka mendapati sebarang perubahan (di atas payudara), “ pengarah perubatan NCSM, Dr M. Murallitharan memberitahu Bernama baru-baru ini.



Kanser payudara adalah kanser paling utama menyerang wanita di seluruh dunia. Di Malaysia, seorang daripada 30 orang wanita berisiko untuk mendapat penyakit ini.



Breast self-checks vital to detect cancer early

By Ainul Huda Mohamed Saaid



KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- Early detection of breast cancer is crucial in enhancing positive outcomes from treatment.



Unfortunately, according to National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM), 43 percent of breast cancer cases in this country are only discovered when in the late stages, namely the third and fourth stages.



“This is unfortunate because breast cancer is highly treatable if detected early.



“We urge our women to be aware and be proactive in seeking medical advice if they find any abnormalities (on their breast),” NCSM medical director Dr M. Murallitharan told Bernama recently.



Breast cancer is the top cancer afflicting women worldwide. In Malaysia, one in every 30 women is at risk of this disease.
