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.
