dc.descriptionSeveral evidences have demonstrated that breast cancer -and other types of cancer- can be prevented by adopting a healthy lifestyle, having a special emphasize in physical activity, quit smoking and alcohol, and an adequate consumption of fruits and vegetables. Moreover, it is important to highlight that early detection is crucial when expecting about prognosis. In this sense, international agencies such as the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) and the International Association for Research on Cancer have encouraged those behaviors linked to the early detection of cancer, where breast selfexamination is the first step for detection of breast malignancies; these recommendations have been also provided by the National Cancer Institute in Colombia.eng
