Dr. Maslamani-The Director of Dunya’s Center talked about Breast Cancer, its symptoms, and the ways to detect it early. She focused on the importance of the manual self examination, in which women can detect any change in their breast and that is the first step in fighting the disease.
Dr. Maslamani has indicated that 9 out of 10 is the percentage of cure from Breast Cancer in case of early detection. She has encouraged women to be strong and get diagnosed since 80 % of the lumps are considered benign.
Dr. Maslamani stated that Dunya’s Center is a nonprofit center that runs all of the diagnostic tests for breast and gynecological tumors in affordable prices.
Dr. Maslamani has also indicated that the center does an annual breast cancer campaign where the community supports paying the costs of the diagnostic tests for the needy. At the end Dr. Maslamani stated that breast cancer can be controlled with hope and early detection. There was also a question and answer session for the audience.
Dr. Maslamani has indicated that NDC and the World Bank are covering the diagnostic costs for social cases so that everyone can get high quality health services.
Dr. Maslamani thanked The Bible Society and the audience for their concern in such an important issue.
