In a first, a group of about 20 lady doctors attached to a leading private hospital, have come out with a 15-minute short film “Karuthelodu Mumbottu” on ways and means to tackle breast cancer.

“It was released on the YouTube on World Cancer Day and the primary objective is to send out the message that early detection if done, can in some cases completely cure the dreaded cancer ailment. We just felt that we need to send this message and decided this awareness short film,” said Joseph.
