Apollomedics spreads the word on keeping a check on signs and symptoms of Breast Cancer

Lucknow: Apollo Medics Super Speciality Hospital organized ‘PEHEL’, on the 21st of October, to spread awareness about breast cancer. The program was attended by more than 200 women from around the city. They were educated on the symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of breast cancer. They were also taught how to self examine changes in their breasts so that they can identify the cancerous ones and can get themselves checked for breast cancer. The participants were also provided with the facility of free cancer screening and counselling.

Dr.Mayank Somani, CEO & MD, Apollomedics Super Specialty Hospital said, “The purpose of Breast cancer awareness month is to spread information about the disease and to also get rid of the misconceptions that have been formed in the minds of people about breast cancer. If breast cancer is detected at an early stage it can be treated better and the survival rate also becomes very high. Through ‘Pehel’, we aim to spread as much correct information about breast cancer as we can.”

Medical Oncologist, Dr. Harshvardhan Atreya, Cancer Specialist at the hospital informed the women about the treatments of breast cancer. Apart from this, a self-examination training session was taken by Gynecologist Dr. Ekta Sharma, which was followed by a Yoga session by Miss Rajni Madhyan. A diet session was also taken by nutritionist Preeti Pandey in which women were advised to avoid unhealthy food to reduce their chances of getting cancer.

Additionally, the women participating in the program were given training certificates. They are now eligible to train other women how to self-examine for breast cancer. Along with this, they were also given coupons for a one-time free mammogram for breast cancer screening, one-time free consultation for cancer, one-time pap smear test, one-time free consultation with oncologists and gynecologists.
