October 13th. What comes into your mind when you think of this date? For me, it is a free pass to posting pictures of boobs, tatas, my ladies, jugs, boobies, tits, bosoms, cans, rack, titties or whatever name you like calling breasts (there are over 101 names for breasts).
To my surprise, I am not alone in this. Actually, on this day alone you will get to see so many boobs photos more than what you are going to see throughout the year. For me, I know Guy Code and Girl Code are to blame. I can only speak for my self
So what is the fuss with October 13? Yes, ladies, it is a no bra day. It is on this day that women are encouraged to forgo wearing a bra as part of the effort to promote awareness on breast cancer.
What is Breast cancer?
So let us start with the basics. It is crucial to understand what breast cancer is so whenever October 13th comes around; it is not just about pictures of boobs.
The genesis of breast cancer is when the small units that make up the human body known as cells start to grow out of control.
This growth leads to the formation of a tumour, in most cases visible through an x-ray scan or even felt as a lump. A growth (a tumour) becomes malignant or cancerous when they grow and start invading other cells or tissues. Tissues a group of cells with the same function).
The invasion sometimes occurs within a small area, but in a few instances in can metastasize (spread) to distant parts of the body. Breast cancer is common in women; however, men can also get breast cancer.
It should be known that any part of the body is prone to become cancerous and that cancer cell can spread to other parts of the body.
What are the signs & symptoms of breast cancer?
A lump or growth felt in the breast is on most occasions the most common sign of breast cancer. However, some of the symptoms of breast cancer are seen rather than being felt. It takes the aid of a mammogram or a specialized person to detect the presence of a lump in the breast long before it can be felt.
Here are 12 illustrated signs of breast cancer to help the people of Malindi:
1. Thick area
3. Nipple Crust
4. Red or Hot
5. Unexpected fluid
6. Skin sores
10.New Shape or Size
11.”Orange Peel” Skin
