Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Indian women. According to the Union Ministry, with a 25.8 percent occurrence rate and a 12.7% mortality rate per 100,000. Inequality characterizes the global burden of breast cancer mortality. Women Inspiring Network (WIN) encourages women to take precautions and steps to detect it early when it is more treatable and reduce the number of cases in the country.
