Breast cancer is the most common cancer among
Singaporean women in the last 50 years and the leading cause of cancer deaths
among women. According to the Singapore Cancer Registry, there were nearly six
newly diagnosed cases and one death occurring every day in 2013-2017, and the
risk of developing breast cancer has increased sharply over the years, mainly
affecting elderly women aged 60-79 years.
Every October marks the Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), an national campaign to raise awareness for this cause. Come and join us at our virtual events from wherever you are!
