S2 Ep40: Raising awareness of breast cancer in the South Asian community - Iyna Butt My Breast My Health

    • Medicine

Breast cancer in the South Asian community is a topic that doesn't get talked much about.  My guest on today's show, Iyna Butt, knows all about this.

You see, Iyna is a British South Asian woman, and when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, she soon realised that cancer in general, let alone breast cancer specifically, seems to be a subject that nobody talks about.

Although no doubt the intentions were good, she was given all sorts of strange advice about what she needed to do to get rid of her cancer; like wearing a black bra for example!

She knew then that she had to do something about this.

In this episode, Iyna talks about her breast cancer diagnosis, her charity work in raising breast cancer awareness within the South Asian community, and the challenges that need to be overcome to ensure that women from all backgrounds are catered for within the health care sphere.
