“I urge you to be vigilant, be aware of your body, and seek help if you have any concerns. Many at times we women prioritize everyone else before ourselves, however, we need to take time to ensure we are healthy and are having regular check-ups.”

Dr Krupali stressed that traditional medicine is not the cure for breast cancer as many women have lost their lives because of this in recent years.

Fiji records around 250 new cases of breast cancer each year.
