Breast Cancer is now the most common cancer amongst Indian women. Approximately 1 in 22 Indian women suffer from this disease during their lifetime. A high incidence has also been noticed in parts of North India like Gurgaon, Delhi NCR, Punjab.
Breast cancer is curable if defected early. If breast cancer is detected at an early stage, another advantage is that mastectomy or full removal of the breast might not be required.
In this patient education video, Dr. Rohan Khandelwal (Breast Cancer Surgeon in Delhi NCR) talks about some common facts and figures regarding Breast cancer in India. In this Hindi video, he talks in detail about the risk factors and the best way to detect this disease at an early stage.
It is important to realise that the most common presentation of breast cancer is in the form of a painless lump in the breast (not painful).
