She stressed that the pivotal role of early detection and recognition of signs in effectively treating the disease and improving survival rates.

Addressing the challenges faced by women affected by breast cancer, Fatani said: “It is crucial to educate women about regular breast health checks.

Fatani offered guidance to individuals with a family history of breast cancer. She urged them to initiate early screening through mammograms, recommending that screening should commence 10 years before the age at which the first-degree relative was affected, but not before the age of 30. 

She added: “Genetic testing offers an opportunity for family members to assess their own risk of developing the disease.”
