Fight Breast Cancer with Health Cube + GIVEAWAY!!! [CLOSED] #FightLikeAGirl

9:24:00 PM



Breast cancer is the number one type of cancer in the Philippines. With the incidence rate steadily rising since 1980, affecting women as early as 30 years old*, breast cancer is something every woman should be concerned of. *Source: 2010 Philippine Cancer Facts & Estimates.

No one can be spared from this disease. Everyone, both men, and women can have breast cancer. The only way you can fight this sickness is early detection by self-checking, monitoring, and having a regular check-up which includes a mammogram especially for those who are at risk (40 years old and up, with family history, had early menstruation, late menopause, smoking, alcohol, no children or no children before 35 etc).



Last October 20, I attended the Health Cube's Fight Like a Girl Pink Party to raise breast cancer awareness. It was an afternoon of discussion with Dr. Sherry Lim Lee where she shared everyone must know about breast cancer. Afterward, two breast cancer "victors" - Ms. Doris Noval and Ms. Liza Schneider shares their inspiring stories and how they fought for their life against this disease.

Dr. Sherry explained the difference between benign and malignant cases on breast
Dr. Sherry is one of the Health Cube's in-house consultants for breast surgery and an active consultant at Cardinal Santos Medical Center.

Ms. Doris Nuval
Ms. Doris Nuval is a communications professional who has been in public service and development work all her life. She acquired breast cancer in late 2005 and so far has won the battle.  She intends to win the war.

Ms. Liza Schneider
Ms. Liza Schneider is a TV, radio host and producer in The Fitness Couple, a winner in Great Bodies 2011 and Muscle Manila 2012. Happily married with 3 kids. She was diagnosed early 2013, left breast mastectomy and reconstruction April 2013.

WHAT IS A MAMMOGRAM

A mammogram is used to check for signs of the disease in women who may or may not have any symptoms. Mammograms do not prevent breast cancer, but it can detect early signs and thus save lives.

Health Cube offers the latest in breast screening with its 3D Tomosynthesis Mammogram. This test produces a 3-dimensional view of the breast that helps identify and characterize individual structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue. Also called breast tomosynthesis, this new technology allows the physician to see thin mammography sections of the entire breast and gives a clearer image thus, decreasing the need for further examinations. 3D mammography is better at detecting changes earlier that regular 2D scans. It can help distinguish superimposed tissue from real abnormalities, leading to less anxiety for women whenever they are due for a breast examination.

WOMEN ARE ALSO AT RISK TO DEVELOP OSTEOPOROSIS

Women are more likely to develop osteoporosis than men as they have less bone mass than men, and the rate of bone loss speeds up after menopause when estrogen levels fall.

WHAT IS OSTEOPOROSIS

Osteoporosis is a disease of the bone. It is a medical condition in which bones become brittle and fragile from loss of tissue or calcium and or Vitamin D deficiency.

WHAT IS BONE DENSITOMETRY

Bone Densitometry, also called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), is an enhanced x-ray technology that measures the strength of your bones. It can detect serious bone loss, otherwise known as osteoporosis, thus leading to prevention of fracture and disability. The procedure is completely painless and is easily performed with minimal radiation exposure. This procedure can identify problems early, enabling you to start treatment and prevent further bone loss.

    It is obvious that I can't go mammogram because I am a man. I am reading your post and I wanted my mom to undergo mammogram. I wanted to make sure that she is healthy even if she is not getting any younger and soon to be in her 60's. Cancer runs into our family and having this test is a big help for her and the family.

  5. When you reach 40, mammogram will be part of your life. I heard masakit daw so there are women na ayaw magpamammo. I have a former officemate who died of breast cancer din. :(

  6. I am lucky to have a mammogram test part of my annual physical examination at work. I dread undergoing this test, it is really painful but knowing early detection gives you an upperhand against this disease gives me strength.
