Breast cancer is the uncontrolled growth of breast cells, which in most cases does not present warning signs or symptoms, which is why it is positioned in Mexico as the leading cause of death in women.

It is intended to remember that mammograms and breast self-examination have saved lives, for this reason, the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) in South Veracruz invites women to attend Breast Cancer Awareness Month to attend the mammography campaign of the Family Medicine Unit (UMF) No. 01 in Orizaba and 67 in Coatzacoalcos.

The director of the UMF No. 67, Dr. Miguel Ángel Jiménez Victoria explained that the main objective of the Institute is to reduce the mortality rate, especially in women between 40 and 60 years old, who are mostly those who face this disease .

As part of the actions that are carried out during this pink month, the FMU No. 01 and 67 in Orizaba and Coatzacoalcos will be providing free mammography study to eligible women from October 18 to 22.

´´It is important that they attend this campaign, timely detection is important. The cornerstone of medicine is prevention, which is why all women and men are invited to take care of themselves, to perform self-examinations, and to go to their clinics in the event of any anomaly, “the specialist highlighted.

Finally, the doctor recalled that it is recommended to attend with two-piece clothing, this in order that when the study is carried out, only the upper part of the body is discovered. Similarly, it is requested not to use creams, powders, lotions or deodorants, since the use of these can alter the results of the X-rays.
