As mentioned in the introduction of this research paper the thesis was if there is lack of knowledge, attention about cancer and breast cancer in particular. Also, if follow up is not being properly treated and there is no development in the medical services offered to the patients and their families by the Ministry of Health hospitals in Saudi Arabia, then this will lead to a continuous and noticeable rise in the number of cancer cases between (Women/Young) in Saudi Arabia.


In Saudi Arabia Breast cancer represents the highest incidence among Saudi females, accounting for 21.1% of all recently identified female cancers. “Breast cancer ranked in the first place and the total number is 1239 cases”. (Dalal M. Al-Tamimi, MD et al., 2009). The findings in my survey result and other research papers strongly suggest the needs of an education for proving accurate practice of Breast Self-Examination. The women in Saudi Arabia showed a positive attitude towards learning this subject. On the source of the results it is strongly suggested that there should be a well-designed health education program for awareness of breast cancer and Breast Self- Examination for the females in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Moreover, the findings of this research paper in relation with the development in the medical services offered to the patients and their families by the Ministry of Health hospitals in Saudi Arabia. It was indicated that patients are not quite agree and not satisfied with the level of cancer care provided to them by the hospitals in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia especially the public and some private sector hospitals. Therefore, patients who were served and treated at King Faisal Specialist Hospital, there were none of the patient testified dissatisfaction with the cancer care provided. This means there is no specific standard that should be followed by the hospitals that provide these services to the patients. And the ministry of health in Saudi Arabia should force all the hospitals within Saudi Arabia to comply with these specific standards and punished them if the break the rules.
Also, one the outcomes of this paper were failure to attend appointments and loss to follow-up will lead to increase the number of incidents cancer among male and females. Overall 340 No Shows cases, 34.1% were because of hospital-based communication errors, around 17.6% to errors in patient communication with hospitals, about 7.4% were reported under transportation obstacles and approximately 16.5% to further special personal reasons” (BROWN S., BELGAUMI, 2009)
This research paper concludes that due to a lack of knowledge, attention about cancer and breast cancer in particular. Also, due to the follow up is not being properly treated and there is no development in the medical services offered to the patients and their families by the Ministry of Health hospitals in Saudi Arabia, there are a continuous and noticeable rise in the number of cancer cases between (Women/Young) in Saudi Arabia.
