Saudi- EP has highest number of breast cancer cases - MENAFN | Breast Cancer News | Scoop.it

Curated by A4BC.ORG's insight:

This article shows how far behind they are in Saudi Arabia with breast cancer. They are also quoting the misleading figures of cure rates when it says in the article "An early detection of the disease can pave the way in 95 percent of all cases to an effective and successful treatment." Even though they are so far behind in awareness at least this type of campaign is allowing more women to get treatment. I think in Saudi Arabia it is always better to try to catch the disease before it's caught at Stage IV. We forget how different treatment and awareness about breast cancer is in other countries.
