Breast cancer is one of the common globally detected cancers, affecting each year an average of 1.4 million women. It has caused a toll of 1 in 8 out of all cancer-related deaths especially among women under the age of 50. It scores to be the second leading cause of deaths in country as well as other parts of the world (lungs and skin cancer being the major cause of mortality).
