KARACHI:  Former actor and TV presenter Veena Malik spoke out about the need to raise awareness on breast diseases which are considered a taboo.

“With the grace of Almighty Allah, I had a successful Fibroadenoma removal surgery at the South City Hospital, Karachi. I am indebted to all the love and prayers said and expressed by my people,” Veena Malik tweeted on Friday night.

“It was a successful surgery supervised by Dr Kausar. I am very grateful for her kind assistance at every point of the operation.”

“I would take this moment to stress the fact that breast care is REAL be it breast cancer or any other breast disease. Women must take care of themselves. And it shouldn’t be considered a taboo. May Allah give us a life full of health and Iman.”

According to a study, one in four women in Pakistan has breast cancer, but awareness and prevention is challenged by the country’s conservatism.

Pink Ribbon Pakistan has reported that forty thousand women die of breast cancer every year in Pakistan but discussion of breast cancer has been nearly non-existent due to social stigma.
