Due to ignorance, fear, and social stigma many women present with later stages of cancer, which requires surgery, aggressive chemotherapy and may not be completely treatable. If detected early, then in most cases, less aggressive treatment would be required and there are better chances of recovery. Therefore, it is important to step up cancer literacy and knowledge amongst the population. This will lead to early detection which is important in the management and treatment of cancer and prevention by making necessary changes in lifestyle.
