In the month of October every year, women are encouraged to wear pink and awareness about breast cancer is encouraged. October 17th of every year is celebrated as Breast Cancer Day and the entire month is devoted to generating awareness, imparting knowledge and campaigning for Breast Cancer. This deadly disease is said to be leading to high death tolls and has become a major medical condition amongst the women in India and other parts of the world.


According to a new survey, the current scenario is worse as every 1 in 28 women have a tendency to acquire or develop this disease in their lifetime, with a higher statistic in urban areas where the ratio is 1 in 22. This disease has also not spared young women. But, breast cancer can be controlled or avoided by leading a healthier lifestyle like moderate consumption of alcohol, healthy eating and daily exercise. Patients can connect with the online doctors at iClinic healthcare to seek information about this disease and also consult a doctor for any medical advice. Patients can also self diagnose any symptom using the online symptom checker before consulting a doctor or to seek a second opinion. Although continuous efforts are being made to come up with latest treatments and medications that can help to combat breast cancer, here is what latest research that has been made this year suggests:


Obesity: Weight gain in adults is cited as a major reason that leads to various diseases including post-menopausal breast cancer. iClinic Healthcare offers tailor-made weight-loss programmes that can help you to stay fit and healthy. The online services like 24/7 online doctor, written medical advice, video call with specialist and ask a doctor are easy to use, available 24/7 and affordable.


Electronic Skin: This is a new revolutionary discovery that is very advanced and can effectively detect very small breast lumps. It can be effectively used for melanoma screening and other cancer too.


Testing Blood: Researchers are currently working on a blood test that will help to determine if a woman is likely to develop breast cancer by testing for a particular epigenetic signature.


Prolonged use of birth control pills: Using birth control pills with high dose of estrogen increases the risk of breast cancer among women.


Miraculous molecule: The molecule alpha v beta 6 is suggested to stop the spread of this disease as per research.


Vaccine: Scientists in Australia have been working on a vaccine that is said to prevent breast cancer from re-occurring and will be available in the next couple of years.
