Breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting women worldwide, accounting for 16 per cent of all cases, but the condition is treatable and curable if detected in its earliest stages, for which the five-year survival rate is about 98 per cent. Similarly, one in every three cancers diagnosed globally is skin cancer, Skin Cancer Foundation statistics show.

The free screening initiative comes close on the heels of Cocoona launching its revolutionary Patient Safety Assurance cover – the first-of-its-kind by any Aesthetic and Cosmetic Centre – for any post-operative complications of plastic surgery patients at its Al Wasl branch.
