Tongan women needs to be encouraged to seek medical treatment in regards to any lump being found on their breast. Education is a key issue here. Medical professionals must be very aware that many Tongans are reluctant to seek medical help till they are in a tire situation which accounts for the many life lost due to breast Ca..Malo e ngaue pea 'ofa ke monu'ia ai pe kaha'u e fonua...
