What you need to know about Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign if You are in Doha

As you all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, there is a lot that Qatar does for you that I think is not quite aware in the public. I was invited to be part of the Intercontinental Doha The City’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, and came across all this information that was so unknown to me before, and probably to many of you as well, and thought I would share it here:

The Breast and Bowel Screening Program is a life-saving population-based initiative that aims to promote education, awareness and early detection of breast and bowel cancer in Qatar. Titled ‘Screen for Life’, it is being conducted under Qatar’s National Cancer Program which represents a shift towards preventive and community-based care. The program encourages women aged 45-69 years with no symptoms to receive breast cancer screening through mammography, which is generally considered safe, quick, and painless. The Ministry of Public Health recommends breast cancer screening every three years.

What are the symptoms of breast cancer?

  • A persistent lump in the breast
  • One or more lumps in the armpit
  • Changes in the shape or size of the breasts, particularly if only one breast changes.
  • Breast skin changes, such as dimpling, puckering, redness, increased warmth, thickening or itching.
  • Nipple changes, such as sudden inversion, discharge or scaling.

What can I do to lower my risk?

  • Get atleast 150 minutes per week of aerobic activity
  • Breastfeed for as long as possible
  • Consult your doctor to limit the dose and duration of hormone therapy
  • Avoid exposure to radiation and environmental pollution.
  • Don’t drink alcohol
  • Don’t smoke
  • Control your weight

What is a mammogram?

A screening mammogram is a low x-ray exam of the breasts to look for changes that are not normal. A mammogram is used as part of a screening plan to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. Mammogram is generally considered safe, quick, and relatively painless.

If you would like to schedule a screening for yourself or someone dear and near to you, contact 800 1112 or write to info@screenforlife.qa

What one word comes to your mind when you see this pic?
Embracing the old , defining the present, and aiming for the best of Qatar for the future, @alrayyan.hotel.doha is a beautiful blend of it all.
That is so much my vision for the blog as well , I really found myself embedded in the different details of the hotel. .

Have you ever stepped into a hotel and felt like this is just exactly who I am? If so, where did you feel that way?
For me, I felt it @alrayyan.hotel.doha from the @curiocollection !
.
.How fab is this sunset?
Curious where it is?
40 minutes away from Al Rayyan hotel is the Zekreet Beach. This was a sunset we caught during our stay at Al Rayyan Hotel.

Have you been to any hotel in the @curiocollection ?
Here's a post
✴️Reminiscing about the wonderful time I had at @alrayyan.hotel.doha this weekend
✴️On another note, Summer's almost here and spending it by the pool is a good idea , isn't it? The one at @alrayyan.hotel.doha is amazing! ✴️Did you know that AlRayyan Hotel is the first of the @Curiocollection Hotel in the Middle East ?
I really enjoyed my time at the hotel... Wait for my entire experience coming soon on the blog .

Sugarcane juice or coconut water? 🌴
Which one would you pick?
Do you like to stop by the street and try out the local fruits and vegetables? Are you that person?
