Breast cancer is the leading cancer among women in India, accounting for up to 35% of all cancers in women and is responsible for most cancer-related deaths among women ages 35-54 years.

  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer in most cities and the second most common in rural India. .
  • In India, one woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 4 minutes.
  • One woman dies of breast cancer, every 13 minutes in India.

76% of cases currently diagnosed are in the advanced stages – which can rarely be treated successfully (Source: Cancer Institute of Chennai).80% of women who should have an annual mammography exam do not because:

  • They are unable to fund a conveniently located facility.
  • High cost of mammography.
  • It takes too much time to arrange and travel to appointments.
  • Difficult to request time off from work (approximately 2 hours).
  • Little to no awareness and education available to women about breast cancer.
