It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and one of the very appreciated media supporters is Voice of the Cape. This is an interview with Dr Hoosain around breast health screening and prevention of breast cancer. With permission from Voice of the Cape, the interview clip can be listened to here:
Early detection and treatment of breast cancer is crucial with all forms of breast cancers. It is even more important with rare forms of breast cancers that require a certain level of expertise to be detected. For example, Inflammatory Breast Cancer and Paget’s disease of the nipple often escape mammographic and ultrasound detection but are obvious to the skilled and experienced examiner.
Dr Fatima Hoosain chatted to Radio 786 about cervical cancer. This is a really important topic as we don't normally hear much about cervical cancer. And many women after menopause think it's not an issue. But these are misconceptions as it is one of those diseases where risk increases with age and therefore screening is recommended until 65 or 70.
