India is witnessing a drastic rise in breast cancer cases in the younger age groups, below 30 or 40 years. Almost 48% patients are below 50 years of age.

Cancer knows no boundaries - attacks young or old, male or female with or without a family history - and does not warn!

What is Cancer?

Cancer begins when cells in a part of the body start to grow out of control. If left untreated it can spread to other parts of the body via blood stream. Tumours (lumps) can be of two types - benign or malignant:



Benign tumors are not cancerous and rarely life-threatening. They grow slowly and do not spread to other parts of the body.


Malignant tumors grow faster than benign tumors, spread and destroy neighboring tissues and other parts of the body.

Precautionary Measures:

Healthy diet, healthy weight & regular physical activity can reduce Cancer Risk.

Regular Checkup: The doctor can detect cancer through physical examination or routine tests, even without any symptoms with regular medical checkups. Early detection helps cure cancer.

Body Fat: Overweight and obesity increases the risk of a number of cancers, including bowel, breast, prostate, pancreas etc. Maintaining body weight within the normal range of BMI from the age of 21 and healthy waist circumference life-long, can help.

Physical Activity: Limit sedentary habits, sitting for long hours, physical inactivity. Brisk walking for at least 30 minutes every day and regular exercise are important.

Diet: Limit eating energy-dense foods (high in fats and/or added sugars and/or low in fiber); avoid sugary drinks.

Symptoms and Treatment

Symptoms and treatment depend on the cancer type and the stage of cancer. Most treatment plans include surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy. Some may involve hormone therapy, biologic therapy or stem cell transplantation.
