October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month; this campaign aims to increase awareness about the disease. According to a report by the World Health Organisation more than 2.1 million women suffer from breast cancer each year worldwide. The idea of the campaign is to educate people about breast cancer so that they can opt for treatment. Like any other cancer treatment of breast cancer does not guarantee a normal life span. Not only does it not guarantee a normal life span it does not even guarantee a painless life span. Treatment for breast cancer comes with a number of unpleasant side-effects.
