Dr. Kike Adesina, the Technical Adviser to Life Empowers Anchors Hope Foundation, has warned women against placing money inside B.rassiere, saying it could cause B.reast cancer.
Adesina gave the warning on Thursday in Ilorin at Al-Hikma University, Ilorin, as the Foundation embarked on cancer awareness campaign across secondary and tertiary educational institutions in the state.
The gynaecologist said women should stop the practice of saving money in their B.rassiere because the money had passed through numerous dirty hands, saying it was dangerous.
According to her, the mere chance that they are created females with B.reast has already predisposed them to having B.reast cancer.
He, therefore, urged women not to create problems for themselves as placing money around the B.reast or any other part of the body was dangerous.
Adesina, who said that Nigeria still faced high burden of B.reast and cervical cancer cases in women, listed the risk factors of B.reast cancer to include age, race, gene or family history and menstrual and reproductive history.
She said that the common types of cancer in the country included B.reast, cervix, ovary, corolectal and uterus.
She noted that “most cancer cases in Nigeria reach advance stage before being brought to medical attention”.
Earlier, Bukola Akinleye, the Director, Special Project of Leah, told students of Queen Elizabeth Secondary School in Ilorin to always embark on self examination for any abnormal changes in their B.reast.
Akinleye advised them to report any abnormality such as distended nipple, change of colour, fluid discharge and boils or lumps in the B.reast.
She warned the girls against early $exual activity, saying it predisposed them to cervical cancer.
She explained that it was men that carried the Human Papilloma virus that causes cancer of the cervix.
The programme featured aerobics, self B.reast examination tutorials and questions and answers session for the students.
