Abstract 2116

Background

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women worldwide and contributes to significant amount of mortality annually. It also contributes significantly to cancer related morbidity in Bali especially in Klungkung district where most of breast cancers are diagnosed at advanced stage. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the association between the level of knowledge with the attitude of local-productive age women toward SADARI (breast self-examination) method

Methods

A community based pre-experimental cross-sectional study was conducted from May 13th – 14th 2017 at Tihingan Village, Klungkung district, Bali. The level of knowledge such as the definition of breast cancer, risk factors, therapy, prevention and several aspects of SADARI technique was examined using validated questionnaire. All of the data were subsequently recoded into SPSS for analysis

Results

60 respondents were enrolled in this study with mean age 40.65±13.32 years. More than half of the respondents were having at least high school education and 65% know breast cancer. However, 76.7% were known about SADARI. 6 variables were significantly associated with the status of SADARI knowledge namely: level of education, knowledge about breast cancer, early symptoms of breast cancer, breast cancer prevention, and how to perform SADARI as well as frequency of SADARI performance by respondents (p  5 with biggest OR on the level of education (OR: 16.9; 95%CI: 2.04-140.21)

Conclusions

We conclude that the level of education, knowledge about breast cancer, early symptoms of breast cancer, breast cancer prevention, and how to perform SADARI as well as frequency of SADARI performance influenced the performance rate of SADARI in reproductive women in Tihingan village, Klungkung District, Bali with low level of education posed the greatest risk of not performing SADARI
