Another report published in September 2018 by the World Health Organization's (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) suggests a total of 1,054 (22.4 per cent) cases of breast cancer were found in 2018 in UAE alone, that count for 22.4% of all cancer cases, making it the worst case among women.

The mother, Marty Rowe, in her late 80s, was diagnosed with lymphoma in July 2016 and was able to obtain a medical marijuana card in addition to receiving aggressive chemotherapy treatments.

The RWE backed-study also found that postmenopausal women, the age of 45 years or older, were at higher risk of breast cancer than pre-menopausal women. While lifestyle choices may directly or indirectly lead to the development of cancerous cells - a study of the profile of breast cancer patients will help health care professionals better identify those likely to fall amidst "high risk" groups and prescribe a preventive screening and check-up more aggressively.
