Ask Dr Radhika Lakshmanan: Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Singaporean women. According a report from the Singapore Cancer Registry, breast cancer constituted 29.4% per cent of all cancers among women between 2008 and 2012. 

Research has uncovered many risk factors associated with breast cancer, helping doctors to provide a fairly good estimate of a woman's risk of breast cancer.

For example, a lady who is aged 40 years and above, with a first degree relative (i.e. sister, mother or maternal grandmother) who has breast cancer is at a high risk of getting breast cancer.

Early detection can save lives. Learn more from Dr Radhika, an experienced breast surgeon as she host a QnA session where she answers questions on breast cancer.
