  1. Isolation is also a cause of high rate of mortality. In 2006, a study by US epidemiologist Candyce Kroenke suggested that women who were most socially isolated were twice as likely to
    die from the disease like breast cancer as women with the strongest social network were.

    Family members and friends should care about them. Yes care is better than cure. However, if a surgery is on its way then their shouldn’t be dearth of mental support for the brave lady.

    1. Thank you Nitin for the information. Isolation a cause? never thought about it. I don’t know what could be the biological factors to see such large number of deaths in isolated women.But it actually makes sense as you can see isolated people might ignore minute details of life or might neglect health as there focus is more on psychologically affecting or troubling things to them.

        You can see that Philips has came with an innovative idea to avert this isolation and the psychological barrier.

  2. Great post Vidyashree, it is a fact that lack of information about breast cancer is one of the main reason behind the death of many women. Many people came to know about it at last stage only, but if they could trace it earlier their life would have been saved…. Thanks for writing a blog on such a topic…
