Role of Nurses and Midwives in Driving Breast Cancer Awareness

Seema Sahu [3]

Abstract: Breast cancer is a one of major cause of female cancer worldwide. It accounts for roughly 30% (or 1 in 3) of newly diagnosed female malignancies annually. The following are the American Cancer Society's projections for breast cancer in the US in 2023: Invasive breast cancer will be identified in women in about 297, 790 new cases. There will be roughly 55, 720 new diagnoses of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Every year, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is observed to help spread knowledge about the disease, its signs and prevention, and to provide funding for studies on the disease's causes, effects, and potential treatments. In order to help women decrease or remove obstacles to screening, nurses can play a significant role in screening promotion by (a) educating women on screening guidelines, the advantages and limits of screening, and risk factors for breast cancer.
