Breast cancer is the most common cancer accounting for 27% of all cancers in Indian women. Owing to the lack of education and awareness of this disease and in absence of a breast cancer‐screening program,
majority of breast cancers are diagnosed a a relatively advanced stage. Recent emphasis on breast health
education, early diagnosis, and more public facilities for cancer treatment are expected to bring about the much‐needed improvement in survival
As per WHO IARC 2018 data almost 1 out of 28 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
Breast cancer now claims more lives in India than anywhere.
Less than 1% of women in India receive any form of breast health check.
