As the month to raise awareness about breast cancer progresses, the Provincial health department has urged women in Manicaland to capitalize on free cancer screening services being offered at public hospitals to lead healthy lives. Provincial Health Promotion Officer Mrs Agnes Mugumbate also challenged men to go for cancer screening, emphasizing that early diagnosis can save lives from the disease. The breast cancer month is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.
