Moawia Mohammed Ali Elhassan: Concerning trends in breast cancer diagnosis for Sudanese women

Moawia Mohammed Ali Elhassan, Associate Professor at University of Gezira, shared on LinkedIn:

“Our recent study published in The Oncologist Journal reveals concerning trends in breast cancer diagnosis for Sudanese women.

Many patients experience significant delays, often presenting at advanced stages. The median interval from the onset of symptoms to receiving oncologic treatment was 7 months.

The delay on the patient’s part plays a significant role in the overall delay. As such, it is vital to establish an early diagnosis strategy that emphasizes raising awareness of the initial signs and symptoms of breast cancer and enhancing access to healthcare services. Furthermore, tackling sociodemographic barriers could potentially facilitate earlier diagnosis and improve outcomes for women with breast cancer.

The talented young researchers Esraa S. A. Alfadul, Salma Alrawa and other I worked with on this study made it a truly rewarding experience. Their talent and dedication were instrumental in making this study a success.”
