Founder and Leader of Breast Care International (BCI), Dr Mrs Beatrice Wiafe-Addai has encouraged married men to fondle their wives breasts very often.
This, she said, is part of the means of helping to detect cancer in the breast early to allow for medical attention.
Breast cancer is by far the most common cancer in women worldwide, both in the developed and developing countries.
Speaking on Angel Mid-Day News on Thursday, Dr. Wiafe Addai said October has been set aside worldwide as the breast cancer awareness month to inform women on the need to have a breast scan for early detection and treatment.
She said some women hardly pay attention to their own breasts.
She expressed worry that the late detection of the disease often resulted in casualties.
Dr. Mrs. Wiafe-Addai called on men to offer the needed support to women suffering from breast cancer adding that “women with the disease need a lot of support and love.”
She also urged husbands to support the women to seek medical care early.
Women were also encouraged to do breast self-examination monthly during menstrual cycles.
She also advised women living with breast cancer to seek medical treatment on time rather than seeking healing at various prayer camps.
