Breast cancer control and prevention

 Raising general public awareness on the breast cancer problem and the mechanisms to control as well as advocating for appropriate policies and programmes are key strategies of population-based breast cancer control. Many low- and middle-income countries face now a double burden of breast and cervical cancer which represent top cancer killers in women over 30 years old. These countries need to implement combined strategies that address both public health problems in an effective and efficient way. Control of specific modifiable breast cancer risk factors as well as effective integrated prevention of non-communicable diseases which promotes healthy diet, physical activity and control of alcohol intake, overweight and obesity, could eventually have an impact in reducing the incidence of breast cancer in the long term. Treatment plan to achieve good outcome is affected by the biology of breast cancer. Breast Therapy includes Mastectomy, Breast-sparing surgery, and Radiation therapy, Chemotherapy, Stereotactic Radiosurgery, Hormone Therapy and Targeted Therapy.
