Breast cancer in Pakistani women proves to be life-threatening but due to modern scientific development, early diagnosis and treatment of this disease is possible. This was expressed by speakers at an awareness seminar organized by the College of Art and Design, the Islamia University of Bahawalpur (IUB).
However, they said, due to a lack of awareness in that regard, breast cancer was spreading rapidly in Pakistan and other Asian countries. According to the annual report of the World Health Organization (WHO), one million women suffer from breast cancer in Pakistan every year.
The seminar was presided over by spouse of the IUB Vice Chancellor Rabia Athar, while Dean Faculty of Social Sciences Dr Rubina Bhatti, Principal College of Art and Design Maria Ansari, Dr Amna Noor, Deputy Registrar Fatima Muzahir and faculty members were present.
