Breast Cancer Awareness Month

We fight cancer together

Every October, health campaigns around the world focus on educating people about the prevention and treatment of breast cancer. Breast cancer is a disease that occurs when breast tissue multiples and grows out of control forming a lump or tumor. Most breast cancers occur due to breast tissue aging. Fewer than 10 percent of cases are from inherited breast cancer genes. Breast cancer occurs in men and women, but the majority of cases occur in women over the age of 60.

Raising awareness around breast cancer, Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare (JHAH) conducts multiple awareness campaigns throughout the month of October.

Breast Cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in women all over the world. It is the leading cause of cancer in women in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

It is also one of the most well treated cancers due to extensive medical research, early detection screening, and advanced treatment options. Most women have a higher probability of  survival if  their cancer is detected and treated early!

Globally October has been recognized as the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

It is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection and treatment and to support past and current individuals who are faced with this illness.  

The Oncology Institute at JHAH is actively campaigning early detection awareness throughout the year, however we raise particular focus in October.

This October the Oncology Institute at JHAH has planned a series of  awareness campaigns that are directed on raising awareness of early detection and early treatment to our current JHAH patients, Saudi Aramco communities, and our future JHAH patients.

Please join us this October, we look forward to meeting you!
