Fighting A Silent Epidemic

With rising incidence of breast cancer in India, women must seek facts and not delay decisions

Sarla was 32 years of age when she felt a lump in her breast. Since it was painless she ignored it; annoyingly, it refused to go away. After a week she decided to visit a gynaecologist who suggested a mammogram. A few days later, she underwent a fine needle aspiration to establish whether she had a benign or malignant tumour.

The cancer was detected early because the radiologist insisted that an ultrasound be done as well. As Sarla had dense breast tissue, little could be discerned from the mammography film which was white and opaque.
