Max number of breast cancer patients in India are in 40-60 age group: Expert

Max number of breast cancer patients in India are in 40-60 age group: Expert

New Delhi, Oct 31 (UNI) The maximum number of patients diagnosed with breast cancer in India are in the age group of 40-60 years, says a health expert.

'In the west, the maximum number of patients diagnosed with breast cancer are in the age group of 50 -70 years, while in India the same is reported in the age group 40 - 60 years,' Dr Sidharth Sahni, Senior Consultant, Surgical Oncologist, Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals.

There has been an increase in the breast cancer incidence in India, especially amongst women in the metros. One in every 8 woman is likely to get breast cancer once in a lifetime elaborated Dr Ramesh Sarin, Senior Consultant (Surgical Oncology) at Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, New Delhi, who has been a part of the Breast Health Awareness Campaign at Apollo Hospitals.

Dr Sarin, said, 'Breast Cancer is the only cancer which is 100 per cent curable if diagnosed on time. Early Diagnosis and routine screening remains the key to curbing breast cancer. The fact remains that one should follow a healthy lifestyle by way of exercising, not putting on weight and have a positive attitude towards life.'

Young women between the age group of 20 and 30 are at a higher risk of disease owing to consumption of junk food, consumption of sugar, processed meat. Usage of reheated oil is one of the major causes which contributes to cancer cells as reheating of vegetable oils leads to release of free radicals which help in the growth of cancer cells, Dr Sahni said.
