Breast cancers increasing among women, says Dr. Shanta

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: The number of breast cancers among women has increased rapidly over the years, overtaking even cervical cancers, V. Shanta, chairperson, Cancer Institute (WIA) said. This development had its own disadvantages, as breast cancer requires a lot more facilities to diagnose, compared to cervical cancer.

Dr. Shanta was delivering the sixth Madras Diabetes Research Foundation-University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA, on “Cancer- Causation and Prevention.” It was held as part of the ninth international seminar on ‘Prevention and Control of Non-Communicable Diseases' being held at MDRF between February 25 and 27.

V. Mohan, president, MDRF, and Chairman, DMDSC, said, “Our focus has always been on building capacity in NCDs through highly successful interactive training programmes and seminars.”
