Breast Cancer services

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide and in India.
The trend is increasing among the younger age group who presents with aggressive type of cancer.Due to lack of awareness of the disease and lack of screening most patients present late and hence the 5 year survival rate in India is less when compared with Western countries.Presenting features include abnormal lump in the breast or abnormal nipple discharge or thickening or puckering of skin of breast etc.
With the advanced surgical techniques, chemotherapy (including targeted therapy) and radiation therapy techniques,most of the cases can be completely cured,provided treatment is taken in the proper sequence and on time.
