What is Breast awareness?

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosed in women, after skin cancer. Breast cancer can affect both men and women, although it affects women much more frequently. Breast cancer survival rates have grown, and the death rate connected with the disease has been progressively decreasing, owing primarily to factors such as earlier detection of breast cancer, a more tailored approach to therapy, and a better knowledge of cancer.

Breast cancer refers to cancers occurring in the breast tissues, developed due to uncontrolled division of different cells of the breast.

For this reason, we have invested ourselves in building a dedicated women's oncology setup that manages all cancers related to women.
