Breast cancer continues to be the commonest cancers among women all over the world.Incidence is more in developed countries as compared to underdeveloped countries.Life style changes ,late marriages,genetic predisposition and  unopposed action of  oestrogen have been documented to be the risk factors.Infilterating ductal carcinomas form the  most common pathological type. Diagnostic modalities like sonomamography,fine needle aspiration and histopathology of breast tumours help in the detection of breast carcinoma.Self breast examination and regular preventive check ups by trained health workers have helped in early diagnosis of cancers in developed countries.Ignorance,reluctance in examining own breasts and inadequate screening facilities are responsible for diagnosis in late inoperable stages in underdeveloped world.Early diagnosis and prompt treatment in the form of surgery,chemotherapy or radiation therapy can result into reduction in breast cancer related mortality.
