Changing the public policy of fighting cancer in Brazil

As a mastologist, a breast cancer health doctor, I closely follow the challenges that breast cancer patients face on a daily basis in Brazil. The public health system does not always facilitate a fast diagnosis process and patients in the metastatic stage often do not have adequate access to medication. A lack of cancer registration and consistent data on the disease further compound the situation of cancer patients.
