Breast cancer is the most common cause of cancer in women worldwide and the commonest cause of cancer death in women in Nigeria between the ages of 45 and 55. Majority of women diagnosed present in advanced stages of the disease. This is due to poor awareness about the disease and the fact that most women do not perform monthly breast examinations or go for breast screening via Ultrasound scan or mammogram.
