therapies of all age groups. The percentage of this age group (4537) treated in total BPL female Population treated in AHCT (14236) 31.86.These values are under estimate because we dont have correct figure of BPL female population (5).

We recommend that people who are at high risk or have a family history of cancer be screened regularly (2). Breast self-examination (BSE) is a best option for women starting in their 20s and 30s and to consult a specialist any slightest of the change (3) for early detection and prompt management. Yearly breast mapping mammograms are recommended starting at age 30 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health. Clinical breast examination (CBE) should be part of a periodic health examination (2), about every 3 years for women in their 20s and 30s and every year for women 40 and over (2). Our study concludes that there is breast cancer clinical incidence is more in 41-50 age group in BPL female population from 2007 to 2012 in all districts(5). References 1.
