Breast Cancer Prevention


There is no sure way to prevent breast cancer. But don't panic! By practicing the following healthy lifestyle habits, we may lower the risks of breast cancer:

  • Regular exercise, at least 150 minutes of medium-intensity exercise per week (such as walking up and down staircase or running)
  • Avoid alcohol and tobacco
  • Maintain a healthy weight (body mass index between 18.5-22.9), women's waistline is targeted at 80 cm. 
  • Perform breast self-examination monthly 
  • Regular breast ultrasound/mammogram 

Many studies have found that stress will increase the risk of cancer. Remember to maintain a good mood, find suitable ways to reduce stress, maintain a balanced diet and reduce the intake of high-calorie food. These all are conducive to strengthening your immune system and keeping you healthy.
