As part of activities to mark this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Ghana Free Zones Authority (GFZA) has put together series of events aimed sensitizing employees and the general public about early detection, treatment, impact and ways to prevent breast cancer.

Under the theme “Get Your Pink On,” the CEO, Amb. Michael A.N.N.Y. Oquaye led the Staff of the Authority through the streets of Cantonments and Labone to create awareness of breast cancer and its impact on women and men.

He further encouraged the general public to constantly check for changes in their bodies and develop healthy habits to help curb the spread of the disease.

Breast cancer treatment can be effective when the disease is identified early. It consists of surgical removal, radiation therapy, and medication (hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, or targeted biological treatment) are used in treating microscopic cancer to prevent it from spreading from the breast tumor through the blood.

Such treatment go a long way to prevent cancer growth and its spread, thereby saves lives.

Unlike some cancers with infection-related causes, such as human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and cervical cancer, there are no known viral or bacterial infections linked to the development of breast cancer.

A medical team from Afrah International Hospital is leading the Breast Cancer Screening at the Head Office of the Ghana Free Zones Authority as part of the activates.
