Save your breasts, visit Asian Breast Center.
Based on studies, breast cancer is still one of leading cancer among women with Philippines having the highest incident rate in Asia. The good news is that breast cancer is a preventable and curable disease, according to Medical experts, noting the increasing number of cancer survivors. The bad news is that here in the Philippines, the only solution to treat the disease is through taking out the whole breast which is a total opposite to the treatments available in the United States.

Breast Cancer In The Philippines
Did you know that there are several types of breast cancer? Four of the common types are ductal carcinoma in situ which is the most common noninvasive breast cancer where cancer has not spread yet and has higher chances of getting cured; invasive ductal carcinoma which starts in a duct of the breast and grows into the surrounding tissue; invasive lobular carcinoma which starts in the glands of the breast that produce milk; and the inflammatory cancer which makes the skin of the breast appear red and feel warm, making it the appearance of infection. The cause of breast cancer is yet to identify, however, there are risk factors that should be considered – age, family history, personal history, menstruation, dense breast tissue, overweight, usage of oral contraceptives, and having hormone therapy after menopause.
