Breast cancer is one of the biggest killer diseases in women. As per a WHO report, 65 % cases in India are diagnosed only when they reach stage III or IV -an advanced stage of the disease.
Cancer stages are usually expressed as a number on a scale of 0 through IV, stage 0 being the starting, non-invasive types that remain within their original location and stage IV being the invasive ones that spread outside the breast to other parts of the body.

A simple, regular preventive health checkup can save a person from all the trauma, physical pain, mental agony and huge financial setback; and that too at a very low cost.
Experts believe that at Stage 1, breast cancer is definitely curable and at Stage 2, it is highly manageable. However due to poor utilization and lack of awareness of preventive healthcare, most patients do not undergo relevant tests regularly, till the symptoms began to appear prominently and they reach stage 3 or 4, a difficult phase to treat.
Along with screening for breast cancer, get yourself checked for other abnormalities as well; go for comprehensive checkups available at Indus Health Plus, the Preventive Healthcare Specialist at most reasonable prices, reliable reports & excellent customer care.
