Terrified by the global burden of breast cancer, the World Health Organization (WHO) wants all of us to know that breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer and that 2.3 million women will be diagnosed by 2020.
Breast cancer also killed 685,000 people worldwide in the same calendar year. Although the rate of treatment success is high in some cases, due to a lack of awareness, the common signs and symptoms of this condition may go unnoticed which can lead to the development of cancer that spreads and progresses to other stages.
