Dr. Sumita Prabhakar, President of Can Protect Foundation said that for the awarenesses and prevention of breast cancer, Can Protect will organize free breast cancer screening and awareness camp at Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyaya (Coronation) Hospital on 21st of every month. There are so many patients coming in the hospital and this free screening facility will be very good for the women.
Free screening of 35 women was conducted in the camp today and 6 suspects were found, 246 cases of awareness and public orientation was carried out during the camp. Breast Cancer Screening was done by Dr. Sumita Prabhakar and her team.
On this occasion, the Can Protect Protection Foundation also provided information and leaflets on prevention of cancer and training on Breast self-exams was also conducted by the team of Can Protect Foundation. Breast self-exam (BSE), or regularly examining your breasts on your own, can be an important way to find a breast cancer early when it’s more likely to be treated successfully. Not every cancer can be found this way, but it is a critical step you can and should take for yourself. Said, Dr. Sumita Prabhakar.
We are thankful to the staff and management of Coronation Hospital, IMA Dehradun, Dr LC Pumetha, Dr SG Sethi and Dr Ajeet Gairola for helping us conducting free Breast Cancer Screening Camp.
