Insights from females of YouWeCan who underwent breast cancer screening.
To be able to understand my breast health and de-taboo my body, this breast cancer screening was more than just an attempt to know my screening status but also to take a risk to fight the bigger risk of cancer humankind battles every day. Coming out of this screening, I am more educated and empowered and advise more women to take this step for their health.
I had never done a breast cancer screening before but because of YouWeCan’s initiative I was able to undergo a radiation free, painless and non-invasive scan. The results helped me understand my body better and take care of it in a better way. The scan has made me more aware and alert now and I strongly urge every woman to go for regular check-ups.
Having a family history of cancer, I was happy to know that I could get myself screened for cancer without having to undergo painful mammography tests. The Breast Cancer Screening programme conducted by Niramai successfully created a safe and comfortable environment for breast cancer screening. The screenings being organised by YouWeCan in collaboration with Niramai are a step in the right direction to beat breast cancer.
Got myself screened despite knowing I had a lump in my breast for 1 year. It was an overwhelming experience to know about my current breast health. The procedure was painless and radiation free which was a big relief. I am more aware about my breast health now. It was indeed a great initiative by YouWeCan.
Dr. Tanvi Yadav
I was relieved to learn that I could have myself examined for cancer without having to endure uncomfortable mammograms. This breast cancer screening was more than simply an effort to learn about my screening status; it was also a risk taken to combat the greater cancer danger that women face every day. I feel more informed and in control after my exam, and I encourage more women to do the same for their health.
Dr. Divya Singh
I underwent a breast cancer screening for the first time ever, and it was one of the best things I have ever done for myself. It is quick, accurate, discreet, and non-intrusive. It took around 15 minutes to complete, and I got the report quickly after.
At first, I was anxious and a little afraid, but the operators clearly explained everything, which allowed me to relax. Now that I’m aware of my breast health, I urge every woman of reproductive age to take breast health seriously and undergo annual screenings because early diagnosis saves lives.
