"However, with a 10-15% increase in the last decade, breast cancer has overtaken cervical cancer in terms of the number of cases reported", this was stated by Dr Veda Padma Priya, senior consultant, surgical oncology at a private hospital on Sunday.

As Breast Cancer Awareness Month continues, it's important to celebrate the victories, while remaining vigilant in our fight against the disease. With a double mastectomy and reconstruction, women were also three times more likely to stop working altogether.
