Valuable information about breast carcinoma thanks so much doctor

अति महत्वपूर्ण एवं उपयोगी जानकारी हेतु आभार व्यक्त करता हूं।

The problem with breast cancer in India is late diagnosis.. Patients ignore any lumps they feel or are shy in expressing that they have any lump.. Also self examination helps in early diagnosis..which patients r not aware of.. Proper education and creating awareness will help in early diagnosis and better prognosis
