October 19

October 19 is World Breast Cancer Day.
It is a day to vindicate the role of prevention and give importance to information and public awareness as the main factors in the fight.
From the WHO (World Health Organization) this day is essential to promote the early detection of this type of tumor in order to improve the diagnosis and survival of affected women.
Breast cancer is the most common among women. Most cases are diagnosed between the ages of 45 and 65. Survival has improved greatly in recent years thanks to the diagnosisearly, to the introduction of healthy living habits among the female population, to medical research and to the awareness of women.
Every year, on October 19, ALBA Menorca takes to the streets to spread the role of our association alongside the woman diagnosed with breast cancer.
