"We now have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest to stop thousands more women dying from breast cancer, and we urge the government to act now", said Breast Cancer Now's chief executive, Baroness Delyth Morgan.

Researchers tested what effect the combination had on women's overall survival and whether it could delay chemotherapy. The Breast Cancer Awareness day-long event included health-related activities and informative medical kiosks providing attendees with valuable information regarding the disease and means of prevention.

Students of the Kindergarten Starters (KGS) school in Garhoud also donated their hair for breast cancer patients. "In addition, young women cannot smoke, try to keep their weight within a normal BMI limit, do self breast exams and see primary caregivers for a physical every year so that they can have a clinical breast exam".

Men can get breast cancer as well, although it is approximately 100 times less common than in women. This is an average of 6.9 months longer than women treated only with hormonal therapy.

The benefits were even stronger in women who had previously responded well to hormone therapy.

This study titled, "Atezolizumab and Nab-Paclitaxel in Advanced Triple-Negative Breast Cancer", was led by Professor Peter Schmid, clinical director of breast cancer at St Bartholomew's Hospital and professor of cancer medicine at Queen Mary University of London and the results of the study were published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Roche's immunotherapy Tecentriq (atezolizumab) has been shown to improve survival in lung cancer patients by nearly five months in a new trial.

As part of the screening programme, women between the age group of 35 years and 65 years were screened for signs and breast cancer. The money helps the ACS fund breast cancer research, provide education and guidance to help people reduce their risk, and offer patient support services. However, women with dense breast tissue are likely to benefit the most.

Cancer is the most deadliest disease and it occurs when some changes which are random called as mutation takes place in the genes which control the growth and regulation of the body. There are projections that suggest that by 2020, the number of breast cancer cases in the country can go as high as 17, 97, 900. Today it is a world leader at identifying cancer-related genes and discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment. It provided the first convincing evidence that DNA damage is the basic cause of cancer, laying the foundation for the now universally accepted idea that cancer is a genetic disease.
