CMZ Workforce Promotes #cmzbracampaignproject



For October 2014,  the Ciudad Medical Zamboanga workforce took time to have their "SELFIE / GROUPIE" with the Ciudad De Zamboanga B.R.E.A.S.T. (Bra to Raise Early Awareness for Screening and Treatment) Installation Art located at the Paseo Del Mar in Zamboanga City!

This is for the CMZ Workforce supports #cmzbracampaignproject Initiative.

Each unit, then, attaches Advocacy messages for Breast Wellness and Breast Cancer Awareness to their photo.

To further spread about the Advocacy and to increase Online Presence, the different CMZ units share their photos in the CMZ BRA Campaign Project Facebook Page and cmzbracampaignproject in Instagram to gather the most Likes and Shares!

Ciudad Medical Zamboanga would like to share these updates about Breast Cancer Awareness!!!

Breast Cancer is the most common form of cancer diagnosed in women.
**** About 1 in 13 women in the Philippines will have breast cancer in her lifetime.
However, Breast cancer does occur in men.
Although, it is uncommon, 1% of all breast cancers occur in men.

BREAST CANCER IS A CURABLE DISEASE WHEN DETECTED, TREATED, AND MANAGED EARLY.
PROBLEM: Low survival rate of 40 % IN BREAST CANCER patients (due to late detection) compared to 80-90% in developing countries!!!
Thus, Breast Cancer is the most common cause of cancer deaths in women.

✓✓✓✓✓✓✓✓ HAVE YOU BEEN CHECKED? ✓✓✓✓✓✓✓✓
Have you thought of the answer to this question yourself?
Follow recommended breast cancer screening guidelines
*** breast self exam (BSE) monthly starting at AGE 20
*** clinical breast exam (CBE) every three years starting at AGE 30
*** mammography starting at AGE 40 plus yearly CBE and monthly BSE.
      Please ask your doctor about it!

We have to take care of ourselves!!!
Possible signs of breast cancer can include:
* Breast lump or mass: painless, firm to hard with irregular borders
* Lump or mass in the armpit
* Change in size or shape of the breast
* Abnormal nipple discharge :bloody, clear to yellow or green , like pus
* Nipple turned inward, if it isn’t usually
* Crusting, bleeding or a rash on your nipple
* Dimpling or thickening of skin in one area of your breast.
Act promptly if any breast changes are found

Aside from the Breast Screening Methods such as Breast Self Exam and Mammography, we have to take good care of ourselves.
More than two-thirds of all fatal cancer cases can be prevented with SIMPLE LIFESTYLE CHANGE
* Eating lots of fruit, veggies, and whole grains ,soya
* Exercising regularly 
* Maintaining a healthy body weight 
* Using protection against the sun 
* And especially, not drinking alcoholic beverages nor smoking
Love your breasts, Have them checked!

EARLY DETECTION AND TREATMENT SAVE LIVES!!!
