Abstract:
Breast cancer is the most malignancy and dangerous disease among women worldwide and its incidence in Pakistan is steadily increasing. In Asia, Pakistan has the highest rate of breast cancer. This is the second leading cause of death in women. About 90,000 cases are reported annually in our country, and more than 42,000 deaths are caused by it, which is dangerous. Current demographic trends indicate that breast cancer will be a public health concern in Pakistan in the future. Details of breast cancer incidence, mortality and disease severity are limited and without such data, therefore, future health policies or plans for the disease cannot be implemented.
