Breast Cancer Survivor Once upon a time there was a girl who kicked cancer’s ass It’s was me shirt is a great shirt that you should have. Breast cancer is the most common female cancer worldwide representing nearly a quarter (23%) of all cancers in women . The global burden of breast cancer is expected to cross 2 million by the year 2030, with growing proportions from developing countries . Although age-standardised incidence rates in India are lower than in the United Kingdom (UK) (25.8 versus 95 per 100,000), mortality rates are nearly as high (12.7 versus 17.1 per 100,000, respectively) as those of the UK . Breast cancer incidence rates within India display a 3–4-fold variation across the country, with the highest rates observed in the Northeast and in major metropolitan cities such as Mumbai and New Delhi . Reasons for this variation include differences in demographic (e.g., education), reproductive (e.g., age at first child and number of children), anthropometric (e.g., adiposity) and lifestyle factors (e.g., tobacco smoking and alcohol use).
