It’s not just about the pink, get yourself screened

October is here and the world just got a whole lot more pink. Buildings are lit up in hues of pink around the island, little pink bows are popping up everywhere all in the name of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

MeDirect Bank is committed to ensuring employees and clients alike are aware of the risks to their health and the options they have to prevent them. In Malta, an average of 300 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Breast cancer is detected from ages as young as 20 up to 85 and older. The most common bracket is from 50 to 75-year-olds.  

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women. Organized screening programs with mammography have led to earlier diagnosis, and coupled with effective treatment, have led to reductions in breast cancer mortality. Raising awareness and understanding about breast cancer risks, early signs and symptoms and overall breast health awareness is an important part of a public health approach for breast cancer. It is important to nip the cancer in its bud and nothing works better than an early detection which could significantly improve the chances of a patient’s survival. Women are advised to self-examine their breasts to check for any abnormal changes like lumps. They may not be always cancerous, but it’s better not to take chances. Early diagnoses through checking yourself and mammography screening will lead to better outcomes and improved survival. Though rare, men can also get breast cancer and account for approximately 1% to 2% of all breast cancer cases. 

MeDirect Bank wholeheartedly joins the October Breast Cancer Awareness month campaign to raise awareness about breast cancer and support women to reduce their breast cancer risks, be screened, seek medical attention and encourage our employees and clients to get screened regularly.

BlackRock Commentary: Turning neutral on DM equities

The Fed stepped up its rhetoric last week by vowing to bring inflation down at any cost. We think reality will be more complex. The hit to Chinese growth is starting to rival its 2020 shock and already surpasses the one from the global financial crisis.
