Being Cancer month we have taken it upon ourselves at Imara Mediplus to give at least 15 free health talks to groups and organizations in Embu town. So far, we have given over 10 talks in the month of October.
Our talks revolve around easy tips & tricks you can use to help discover cancer early. Here are some of the tips and tricks you can use to detect early warning signs of breast cancer:
1. Feel for breast lumps. This may be the earliest sign. Do a breast exam both lying down and standing.
2. Check for any nipple discharge. Any breast discharge other than milk in a breast feeding mother is not normal.
3. Breast pain. Breasts should not be painful.
4. Skin changes. This include: color change, hardening of the skin, wounds on the skin etc.
If you discover any of the above. Please seek medical advice as soon as possible. It could just save your life.
Our team over at Imara Mediplus explained these tricks and tips to early detection of Breast Cancer during one of our open sessions at SMEP EMBU earlier this week. During the session, the team led by Dr. Mureithi also covered tips to early detection of other types of cancer. Please contact our marketing manager( Mr. Maina-0708 347 062) if you would like us, Imara Mediplus, to give your organization or group a free health talk.
