Breast cancer is a difficult adversary but it can be beaten

It is currently estimated that 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer at some time in their lives. According to World Health Organisation data, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer affecting women throughout the world, representing 16% of all female cancers. Despite these data, breast cancer mortality rates are falling each year thanks to the advances in early diagnosis and treatment. In fact, when it is detected early, chances of survival are virtually 100%.

After being diagnosed with breast cancer, it is important to remain calm and find out the best treatment options.
