1. FETENE, KASAHUN AMOGNE. ASSESSMENT OF BREAST CANCER KNOWLEDGE AND PRACTICE OF BREAST SELF - EXAMINATION AMONG FEMALE STUDENTS IN MADAWALABU UNIVERSITY, BALE, ETHIOPIA .

Degree: 2014, Addis Ababa University

Background: Breast cancer is a disease of public health importance. It results in high morbidity and mortality in women worldwide. Breast examination as a screening tool for breast cancer in developing countries is advocated in view of its cost-effectiveness. Early detection of breast cancer using breast self-examination (BSE) plays an important role in decreasing its morbidity and mortality. Objective: To assess breast cancer awareness and practice of breast self-examination among female students in Madawalabu University Bale, Ethiopia, 2014 Methods: Cross-sectional study design was employed from December –June, 2014 in Madawalabu University. First the students were divided in to two practical strata, which are health science students and non-health science students. From each stratum, participants were selected by simple random sampling based on the proportion of the number of female students in each stratum that was 39 health science students and 383 non- health science students. Self administered questionnaire was used to collect the data. Data were entered with Epi Info version 3.5.1 and analyzed using SPSS statistical package version 16.0. Bivariate and multivariate logistic regression analysis was performed. Result: This study found that only [31.0%] of students had awareness about breast cancer and [15.5%] practiced BSE. The three main reasons for not doing BSE were belief that there is no problem with their breast [50.8%], not knowing the technique of BSE [40.0%], and Lack of privacy [15%]. Awareness about breast cancer and got information about BSE by health professionals were found significantly associated with practice of BSE. Respondents in the health related disciplines were six times more likely to practice BSE than other respondents. Conclusion: Awareness of breast cancer and BSE practice was found low in this study. Having information on the importance of BSE was predictor of BSE practice. Advisors/Committee Members: SR WORKINESH SINSHAW (BSc, RN, MSc) (advisor).
