Breast cancer commonest in Indian women

Breast cancer is the commonest cancer seen in Indian women. It contributes to 32 per cent of women related cancers. One in 29 women in India run a risk of developing breast cancer.

Though the magnitude of the disease is high, it is a curable disease. Breast cancer is one of the few cancers, which when detected early and treated appropriately, can be completely cured.

Normal life after breast cancer treatment is possible, but the pre-requisite is early detection.
