EARLY DETECTION OF BREAST CANCER CAN LEAD TO TREATMENT AND SURVIVAL
In India, Breast cancer is the most and the leading cancer killer among women. More than 60 percent of Indian women diagnosed with breast cancer are in the age group of 35-50 years. It is estimated that 1 in 28 women may develop breast cancer during her lifetime and for every two women newly diagnosed with breast cancer one dies.
As per reports, lack of early diagnosis of breast cancer claims approx. 76,000 Indian women every year. Women often tend to neglect their health due to various reasons including family obligations, reluctance to consult a male doctor etc.
Mammogram Test is a key screening procedure to detect Breast Cancer early. A low-dose x-ray that allows Radiologists to look for changes in the breast tissue. It can help detect breast cancer early, when it’s small and even before a lump can be felt. This is when it’s easiest to treat. Mammogram is recommended for every woman, including younger women, who notice symptoms of breast cancer.
