CANSA South Coast is continuing with its free breast cancer examinations at local clinics and visited Umzumbe Clinic, with the support of the Phakamisa Navigation programme.

Phakamisa is affiliated to Philasande, a non-profit organisation that operates within the Mzumbe community.

Phakamisa holds talks and assists cancer patients with their day to day care.

Sesethu Senene of Cansa said they screened over 30 people in Umzumbe, and fortunately there were no referrals.

Senene said screening does not necessarily find or diagnose a patient with cancer.

“When we do the screening we check for lumps and if one if found, then the person is referred to a doctor for further testing,” she said.

Tomorrow Cansa will be visiting Gamalakhe Clinic for more free screenings.
