Awareness in India Breast cancer is one of most common forms of cancer in India. Every year, almost 1.1 lakh new cases of breast cancer are reported in India – especially of urban women and young women. Since little education about this disease is known in the community, awareness and education is imperative for prevention, control and treatment.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.
