A Malaysian Book of Records Health Record That Genuinely Is Good for the Malaysian Rakyat

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – In a welcome turn of events, Malaysia has set a new world record for the most breast cancer screenings conducted in a single campaign. The Pink Unity 6600 Campaign, held from October 4 to November 4, saw an impressive 6,600 (actual number may even exceed 6700) women undergoing breast cancer screenings. This remarkable achievement has been recognized by the Malaysia Book of Records, further highlighting its significance. The 6600 achievement target was set to help commemorate the 66th anniversary of Malaysia's independence.
The campaign's success can be attributed to the National Cancer Society Malaysia's (NCSM) tireless efforts to raise awareness about breast cancer and encourage early detection. They utilized various screening methods, including Clinical Breast Examination (CBE), Mammogram, Ultrasound Breast, and handheld breast screening medical device I-Breast, ensuring that women across the country had access to a range of screening options.
The introduction of I-Breast played a pivotal role in the campaign's effectiveness. This innovative device provides an early warning indicator of potential breast cancer, making it a convenient and cost-effective screening option for women. By bringing I-Breast to local clinics, NCSM has made it easier for women to get the screenings they need without having to travel to major hospitals.
The campaign's impact extends beyond the number of screenings conducted. It has also raised awareness about the importance of early detection, which is crucial for improving breast cancer survival rates. As Dr Murallitharan Munisamy, NCSM's managing director, aptly stated, "Over 50% of Malaysian cancer patients are detected after it has reached stage 3 or 4, which is too late for treatment in some cases." Early detection through screenings can help identify breast cancer at its earliest stages, increasing the chances of successful treatment and ultimately saving lives.
The Pink Unity 6600 Campaign has set a new benchmark for breast cancer awareness and early detection in Malaysia. It is a testament to the dedication of NCSM and the unwavering support of the Malaysian government. With continued efforts to raise awareness and make screenings more accessible, Malaysia can move towards a future where breast cancer is detected early and treated effectively, improving the lives of countless women.
According to a recent study by the National Cancer Registry of Malaysia, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the country, accounting for nearly 30% of all female cancer cases. However, the study also revealed that a staggering 70% of these women are diagnosed with the disease at stage three or four, meaning the cancer has already spread to other parts of the body.
This alarmingly high rate of late-stage diagnosis is attributed to several factors, including a lack of awareness about breast cancer and its symptoms, cultural stigmas associated with seeking medical attention for breast-related issues, and limited access to quality healthcare facilities. The panel speakers who were breast cancer survivors spoke about the importance of early detection and treatment followed by a healthy diet with an emphasis on plant based and vegetarian diets and healthy lifestyle as a means to achieve a high quality of life for survivors.
In contrast, Singapore has made significant strides in early breast cancer detection, with over 70% of women diagnosed at stage one or two. This success is largely due to the country's comprehensive breast cancer screening program, which encourages women to undergo regular mammograms and breast self-examinations.
