Breast screening has a significant impact on the mortality and prognosis of breast cancer. Therefore, cancers can be detected as earlier as possible when they’re small and have not spread to lymph nodes making breast conservation possible as well as causing a reduction in mortality.

  • Age shift (most of the women get affected in their 30s and 40s)
  • The rising number of breast cancer patients in India
  • Lack of awareness among women
