Still under idea stage - Kashyap Raval

Addressing the problem!

In India,  Breast cancer is the 2nd most largely occurring cancer in India, the leading cause of death for women - among cancer diseases. But given these statistics, cancer awareness and treatment are still very low. Low breast cancer awareness means Indian women do not go through regular breast checkups and mammogram tests as they should once they have reached a certain age. Also, they are not aware of self-breast examinations or do not do so on a regular basis. 

Tragically, there is still no cure, but early diagnosis and detection help to save lives

In 2020, more than two lakh women in India were estimated to have been diagnosed with breast cancer, and more than 76,000 deaths were reported as per the estimates. As per the 2020 National Cancer Registry Program Report, the number is expected to rise to more than 2.3 lakh cases in 2025.
