Breast Cancer Awareness Month

We fight cancer together

Every October, health campaigns around the world focus on educating people about the prevention and treatment of breast cancer. Breast cancer is a disease that occurs when breast tissue multiples and grows out of control forming a lump or tumor. Most breast cancers occur due to breast tissue aging. Fewer than 10 percent of cases are from inherited breast cancer genes. Breast cancer occurs in men and women, but the majority of cases occur in women over the age of 60.

Raising awareness around breast cancer, Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare (JHAH) conducts multiple awareness campaigns throughout the month of October.
