Growing Incidence & Threat of Breast Cancer
Only the tip of the iceberg is the prevalence of BC consistently rising. This growing burden is a result of numerous underlying issues. Nearly 60% of BC cases in India are discovered in the third or fourth stages of the illness. The majority of patients only visit the hospital when a big palpable mass or secondary changes like local skin or chest wall changes are evident. Due to their domestic duties, women often ignore small symptoms and wait until they are intolerable before visiting the hospital. Lack of knowledge about the illness, particularly in rural regions, is another factor that can be responsible for the late presentation. Sadly, 49% of healthcare staff exhibit this lack of knowledge of the BC risk factors and early detection techniques.
