The sucking and massaging of breast by men do not prevent a woman from having a breast cancer, the President of BreastCare International (BCI), Dr (Mrs) Beatrice Wiafe-Addai has explained.

She said the disease is a serious one and must not be trivialised with such a notion on social media.

Rather, the massaging and examination will help to detect a lump early if it forms within the breast.

"The fact that one's breast is being sucked or massaged doesn't mean that she cannot have breast cancer, and it will not also remove the cancer from the breast as some people say".

"It is like joking about it. This is a serious disease, sucking of the breast and massaging it will not prevent a woman from getting breast cancer," she added.

She was speaking at a breast cancer educational and clinical screening organised by Breast Care International at the Accra College of Education on the theme, "Breast cancer won't rest, so why should we?"
