Programme to Combat Breast Cancer aims to meet 50% of the female population

The state of Minas Gerais will feature a Mobile Health Unit, a truck fully equipped and prepared to perform mammograms and help detect breast cancer. The expectation is that the service can ensure greater speed and convenience to women for the exam. Seven other vehicles are being prepared for the same purpose.

Breast cancer is currently the second leading cause of death in the mining population and accounts for 14.1% of all deaths in Minas Gerais. The Program Against Breast Cancer of Minas Gerais aims to meet 50% of the female population aged 45-69 years, says Health Secretary, Jorge Antonio.

According to the State Department of Health, April-August 2011 were performed 218,934 mammograms. In 2012, during the same period were 249,343 tests, an increase of 30,409.

The secretary also clarified that it is not necessary that women go through to require medical examination. She can go to a nearest health unit and ask the guide for the exam, or get the document online. Simply go to the facebook page of the State Department of Health, populate the data and print the form. With the document in hand, the woman should go to a health facility to schedule mammograms.

While authorities discursavam and personalities, artists grafitavam screens that will be exhibited in Administrative City of Minas Gerais. The screens are alluding to Pink October, which aims to encourage women's mining age group of 45 to 69 years to perform mammography every two years.

According to the National Cancer Institute (INCA), breast cancer is the type of the disease that kills more in Brazil. Every hour, six Brazilian receive the news that they have the disease. The only way to increase the chances of curing breast cancer is early diagnosis.
