Women at great risk: Physician

There is an even greater risk for women today to develop breast cancer.

This is due to the current way of life.

Breast cancer is common in women aged 40 and beyond. 

But Pacific International Hospital’s medical doctor and chief physician, Dr Suresh Venkita, says this is not the case anymore.

Unfortunately, the age for breast cancer has greatly dropped, he said.

And among other reasons, he highlighted the main factor being women’s delay into motherhood combined with their smoking habits.

“Many women are having this because of later marriage, later pregnancy, later child delivery, breast feeding issues and smoking,” he said.

If one has family history, the possibility is doubled.

Earlier checks are encouraged to address the cancer at its earliest stages.
