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 Annual Report 2019, breast cancer remains the most common cancer diagnosed in females, and the leading cause of cancer death in women in Singapore.
Every October marks the Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), a national campaign to raise awareness for this cause. This October, SingHealth Duke-NUS Breast Centre echoes the unified national message on breast health with a tongue in cheek reminder,
"Donut forget to keep them in check". While this is a light-hearted way to remind the women we love to keep up-to-date with their breast health, we are serious about highlighting an important issue that impacts our community – the significance of regular mammogram screenings for early detection of breast cancer, which can save lives.
The SingHealth Duke-NUS Breast Centre’s multidisciplinary team of breast surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, breast care nurses and allied health professionals from Changi General Hospital, KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Singapore General Hospital, Sengkang General Hospital, and National Cancer Centre Singapore, is a strong advocate for breast cancer awareness, our patients and survivors, and strives to stay ahead of the curve in medical, surgical and technological advancement, research and education for breast cancer care.
