Patients' School for women with breast cancer will be held in Moscow

On October 23, at 17:00 in the conference room at the City Clinical Hospital No. 40 of the Moscow Department of Health, the Patients' School will be held, dedicated to the latest technologies of breast cancer treatment. This free outreach event is coordinated with the time of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and organized by Interregional Public Movement "Movement Against Cancer" with the support of non-profit partnership "Equal Right to Life". The purpose of the School is to provide first-hand information about the disease from leading oncologists, qualified psychologists and lawyers to patients, their families and friends. A woman must be sure that she receives the right treatment, and must feel that she is not alone in the strive to overcome the disease.

Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women, every twentieth woman is susceptible to this disease in Russia. In our country, BC ranks first in the structure of cancer incidence in women: in 2013 there were more than 60,000 new cases; the total number of patients with this diagnosis exceeded half a million. The cancer "gets yonger" – more and more women of working age fall into the risk group. Moscow is not an exception, every year more than 5500 women in Moscow and 3200 in Moscow region are shocked to learn of the terrible diagnosis. However, cancer is not a death sentence, experts believe.

"Modern oncology, with its medicinal, technical and intellectual resources has reached the level, when it is absolutely real to talk about significant extension of life, improving its quality, and in some cases about full recovery of patients," said the chairman of the Executive Committee of IPM "Movement Against Cancer", member of the Public Council at the Russian Ministry of Health Nikolay Dronov.

Breast cancer is now one of the most studied and successfully treated pathologies, it can be stopped and even completely cured. The statistics is encouraging: the five-year survival rate reaches 82% in UK,86% in Finland, and 90% in the USA. This is the results of not only the effectiveness of treatment, but also a high degree of awareness and cancer vigilance in these countries.
