The expected survival period for breast cancer patients determines the outcome of any treatment. The epidemiological features as well as the biological profile of breast cancer is considerably different in India compared to the West. Understanding the factors that affect the survival rates among breast cancer-afflicted women helps define early detection actions and provides better care proposals across every area of health. The overall survival rate of breast cancer in the country normally ranges between 40 percent and 62 percent.
