Gulf fights breast cancer stigma

Some Middle East women risk death rather than undertaking breast cancer check-ups.

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer to affect women and early diagnosis is criticial to a patient’s chances of survival.

But in some Middle Eastern countries, women do not always go for regular check-ups, and sometimes delay treatment because of the stigma surrounding the disease.
