Breast cancer is a non existent entity for a majority of population till a near and dear one suffers from it. Healthcare is low on priority and even in major cities, screening is also an ‘alien’ word for most people. So naturally, this results in most people presenting only when symptomatic, and on an average, most ‘symtomatic’ cancers are stage 2B and beyond (significant numbers in stages 3 and 4). So the breast cancer patients do not tend to survive for a longer time.
Majority of breast cancers ( more than 75%) present in stages 1 and 2, results in good survival; and there is an ever increasing numbers of patients presenting with mammography detected cancer, with no symptoms.
India needs to reach this achievement, and it is only with aggressive promotion of screening and awareness and proper treatment that India will achieve this; and will take atleast a few decades to reproduce similar results.
In this notion Harshamitra along with its trust Rosegarden is actively involved in creating Cancer Awareness and Screening camps for the welfare of our people’s health and quality of life.
We invite Schools, Colleges and NGOs to get in tie with us to conduct free cancer awareness camps at your place.
