Breast cancer is one of the major causes of mortality among those suffering from cancer across the world. Unfortunately, Indian women are the biggest victims of this lethal disease worldwide. The country requires more awareness to lower the mortality through breast cancer. There is an increasing trend of cancer patients in the country and the age group has dropped from 55 years to under 40 years of age. Nearly 1.5 lakh breast cancer patients have been recorded in India in 2017.
