Dr Cheng-Har Yip - Ramsay Sime Darby Health Care, Shah Alam, Malaysia

Dr Yip speaks with ecancer at the 10th BGICC in Cairo about prevention and early detection of breast cancer in low-resource environments.

She highlights several environmental and societal risk factors on women, including rates of pregancy and breast feeding, alongside dietary and genetic variation between Western women and those in south-east Asia.

Dr Yip draws attention to early detection as a means of not only improving outcomes from the primary lesion, but also as a way to secondary prevention, limiting the spread of disease through metastasis.

For more on management of breast cancer in Asia, Dr Jiong Wu spoke with ecancer about disease management in Shanghai.
