Over the last few decades’ cancer is assuming increasing
importance in the developing countries. Breast cancer is also emerging as a
cause for concern. Changing life-styles and behavioral patterns of women has
made them more prone to cancer of the breast more so in the metropolitan cities
than in the rest of the country. The implications of the disease are serious
when measured in terms of family hardship, disablement, and loss of life. Developing
countries are warned to take appropriate steps to avoid ‘the epidemic’ of such
diseases likely to come with socio-economic and health development.
Breasts are a vital part of the human body and a source of
interest to all. Not only do they add to the beauty of a woman’s body but they
also perform a vital function of breast feeding. But if a lady
suffers from breast cancer then everything else becomes
secondary. It becomes an all important issue of life over death. Therefore, it
is essential that women look after the health of their breasts.
Breast cancer is one of the commonest causes of mortality in
many developed countries in middle aged- women, and is becoming frequent in
developing countries as well. (1) Breast self-examination (BSE) is one
screening technique by which a woman conducts a thorough examination of her
entire breasts and armpits with the use of the fingers to check for any lumps
that might have developed in these places. It has been observed that women
themselves find most of the lumps.
For early detection of Breast Cancer, Breast
Self-Examination (BSE) is a technique, which is simple to perform, free of cost
and after practice can be performed by the women themselves in the privacy of
their homes, for those who have breast cancer or are related
to it in any way there are many vital issues they need to learn about.
I hope that this book will empower women to fight against breast cancer.
