October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise awareness about the effects of breast cancer.

Celebrating this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness, the Gender Commission of the Graduate students Ghana (GRASAG) organized a Free Breast Cancer Screening for the Tamale Central Prisons.

Breast cancer starts when cells in the breast begin to grow abnormally. These cells have the potential to grow out of control and invade the surrounding tissue. Although it occurs in both sexes, females are the most vulnerable.


The event which was under the theme “Combating Breast Cancer among Female inmates,” forms part of the social responsibilities of the GRASAG Gender Commission saw over 200 females including inmates, staff, and some Graduate students from UDS screened.

Speaking at the event, Ms Abiba Asoma who is the National Gender Commissioner of the Graduate Students Association of Ghana emphasized the need to take proper care of the Breast to avoid cancer. Regular hospital check-ups, eating healthy food, and self-screening are some of the measures she mentioned to combat breast cancer.

Inmates who were screened could not hide their joy and were thankful to the Graduate Student Association for remembering them on this special day. They called on cooperate bodies to come to support as “we are getting closer to Christmas,”
