In an effort to curb the soaring cases of breast cancer, especially amongst women, the World Health Organisation has set the month of October to raise awareness about the condition, and a pink ribbon to symbolise the world’s affection and support for its victims.

Educating Ghanaian women – and men alike – on the condition, the Chief Executive Officer of Amagashie Herbal Centre, Dr. Samuel Amagashie, advised women to get frequently checked up for the possible detection of an early-stage breast cancer. According to him, despite being sometimes hereditary, a number of factors including abortion, and aging.

He counselled that it is good for women to massage their breasts early woman and avoid sleeping on their breasts for long hours.

However, he bemoaned the neglect of herbal medicine practitioners by government in the fight against breast cancer. Testifying about the potency of herbal medication, he argued that unlike the orthodox medicine which usually leads to the amputation of an infected breast, traditional medicine cures of the patient of the disease and halts any reoccurrence.

Dr. Amagashie has therefore pleaded with the Ministry of Health and the Ghana Health Service to give traditional medicine practitioners the opportunity to join in the fight and save many lives from being lost.
