In Ghana, nearly 70% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have advanced stages of the disease at presentation.  They often die without receiving any treatment, reinforcing the myth that diagnosis of breast cancer equals a death sentence. Often, this late presentation is due to low awareness and screening. The HopeXchange Medical Center in Ghana is very active in encouraging preventative screening as well as offering high-quality diagnosis through its sophisticated equipment at the HopeXchange  Diagnostic and Imaging Center as well as its pathology laboratory that is unique in the region.  International breast oncology surgeons together with medical personnel regularly carry out breast surgical interventions that often require specialized expertise.
