|Title:|| ||Doctors urge early detection for breast cancer
|Date of publication:|| ||2007|
|Description/subject:|| ||WHEN the biopsy result came back, tears were rolling down 63-year-old Daw Khin Tin’s face.
“While I was bathing, just by chance I touched a small lump in my breast. It wasn’t painful but one week later it seemed bigger so I went to a clinic and the doctor urged me to have a biopsy done straight away,” Daw Khin Tin said.
“The results showed the cancer was already at stage three,” the final stage before it spreads to other parts of the body. “I was haunted by the disease and lived with the constant fear that I would die.”|
