Ann Clin Lab Res Vol. DOI: Background: Women with breast cancer comprise a very heterogeneous group.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women worldwide with over 1. There is a wide variation in the geographical burden of the disease with the highest incidences seen in the more developed regions of the world and the lowest incidences observed in the least developed regions. More recently the incidence of breast cancer has been observed to be increasing in low income countries and data suggests that over the next twenty years the majority of the increase in the worldwide burden of the disease will be due to rising incidences in these countries.
The present study was planned to assess the relationship of palmar dermatoglyphic patterns of hands in women with breast cancer and or at risk for developing breast cancer. This study was conducted on histopathologically confirmed breast cancer patients in women and their digital dermatoglyphic patterns were studied to assess their association with the type and onset of breast cancer. Simultaneously age-matched controls were also selected with no self or familial history of a diagnosed breast cancer and the observations were recorded.
Most of the Indian women do not know the possibility of inspecting their own body and many of them have not even heard of breast cancer. In his dissertation, Nitin Gangane has performed two studies of women in the mainly rural-dominated district of Wardha in the state of Maharashtra in central India. The first study consisted of a sample of 1, women interviewed about socioeconomic factors, knowledge of breast cancer and attitudes to breast self-examination.
Worldwide, 59 percent of deaths from breast cancer and 50 percent of breast cancer cases occur in low to middle-income countries. India bears 7 percent of the global burden of breast cancer cases. Often, thoseannual cases are diagnosed at an advanced stage, when the opportunities for treatment are no longer as promising.
Breast and ovarian cancers now account for one in three cancers in Indian women and their incidence is rising. Major differences in the clinical presentation of breast and ovarian cancers exist between India and the United Kingdom. For example, Indian patients with breast cancer typically present a decade earlier than in the UK.
ANN ARBOR—Women in developed countries survive roughly 10 years longer after a breast cancer diagnosis compared to women in poor-to-middle-income countries, a new University of Michigan study suggests. Early diagnosis and sustained treatment were the biggest hurdles and also the main indicators of patient survival, he said. Balkrishnan and colleagues looked at roughly women in the southern rural district of Udupi, India.
A crowd-sourced project on Instagram is providing a safe space for women to talk about their breasts. As someone who regularly has online discussions about gender, identity, and body, Harikumar has many crowd-sourced projects. Her first one, IndianTinderTalesfeatures her illustrations depicting the experiences of Indians using the dating app Tinder.
The data that has been represented on this site, has been referenced from the following official Indian registries, which are subsets of the National Cancer Registry Programme: Three Year Report of the Population Based Cancer Registries - In the menu below, at the bottom of the page, you can click the individual cities, to know the cancer statistics related to those cities, or you could click the link for a global comparison. For each city, the following points have been discussed, to highlight the problem of breast cancer in India: Incidence of breast cancer in that city.
The incidence of breast cancer is New Delhi: The burden of breast cancer may be far more severe than estimated by the government, revealed a Confederation of Indian Industry CII report released on Thursday. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Indian women, both in terms of incidence as well as mortality. The proportional prevalence in younger age-groups in India is higher than the global average.
