Breast Cancer Awareness Day is Saturday, 19 October, but the MD Anderson Cancer Center Madrid is getting an early start. Today, Tuesday, 15 October, it’s joining the challenge of raising awareness and helping to prevent breast cancer, which affects over 35,000 women every year in our country.

According to data from the Spanish Society of Medical Oncology (SEOM), it is estimated that this year more than 270,000 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in Spain, a number that increases every year.

Will the treatment work or will it be a waste of time?
