- United Arab Emirates: Sunday, September 16 - 2012 at 11:00
Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has revealed an increase in breast cancer cases in hospitals under the DHA management by 20% since 2009, Gulf Today has reported. "About 25% of all breast surgeries conducted in 2009 were due to breast cancer," said Dr Moza Al Hattawi, chairperson of the DHA Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, which will run across all governmental organisations until October this year. Almost 30% of women detected with breast cancer visit DHA hospitals in the third stage, she said. "We want to reduce the prevalence of this trend. The outcome of the treatment depends on a large extent to the stage at which the cancer is detected and treated. And we hope that we see women in the early stages of cancer rather than in their third stage," she added.
