Breast cancer refers to cancers occurring in the breast tissues, developed due to uncontrolled division of different cells of the breast. Bangalore, sadly, is known to be the breast cancer capital of India. Being diagnosed with breast cancer can be quite devastating for a woman. For this reason, we have invested ourselves in building a dedicated women's oncology setup that manages all cancers related to women. Studies show that early breast cancer treatment has better outcome and prognosis, which is possible only if there is good awareness among women about breast cancer symptoms and evaluation methods. With organ site specialists who have extensive experience in breast oncology and imaging, Cytecare provides accurate diagnosis for better clinical judgement regarding therapeutic choices.
