Cancer is a disease that causes a group of cells in the body to grow abnormally and uncontrollably, giving rise to a lump or mass.
This happens in all cancers except leukemia.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has among its major goals to save as many as 2.5 million women from breast cancer by 2040.
In this regard, WHO published a new “Global Breast Cancer Initiative Framework,” highly recommending nations focusing on early detection programs so that at least 60% of cancer cases are diagnosed and treated at early stages.
Treatment should be initiated within the three months after first onset, in addition to guaranteeing at least 80% of patients complete corresponding treatment.
WHO regretted that breast cancer survival is too unequal among countries.
80% of breast/cervical cancer deaths happen in low- and middle-income countries.
Over 2.3 million breast cancer cases occur annually, making it the most common cancer among adults.
