Breast Cancer in Delhi
Breast cancer is the commonest cancer among women in Delhi, and accounts for 28.6% of cancers in women in Delhi. With the changing lifestyle, the incidence of breast cancer is increasing in younger women. Previously, around two-third of women with breast cancer were more than 50 years of age, but presently, half of the women with breast cancer are diagnosed at less than 50 years of age. Also, the percentage of breast cancer among the total cancer cases in women has increased in Delhi, from 20% to 28% in recent times.
So, with all this data, we understand that total number of cases of breast cancer in Delhi are increasing in all age groups, and the increase is much more in the younger age groups. Moreover, it presents in advanced stages in younger age groups and the survival is also lesser.
Breast Cancer Treatment Cost in Delhi
Treatment cost for breast cancer depends on many factors like stage of disease, type and number of treatment modalities that are being used for treatment, whether the patient is Her 2 Neu positive or negative, etc. For example, in localised and locally advanced breast cancer, cost of surgery is there. But radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and/or targeted therapy cost adds up depending on the various factors discussed above. In case of metastatic disease, cost of treatment depends on the treatment protocol being used, like number of chemotherapy drugs used, whether Her-2 Neu targeted therapy is being used or not, other palliative modalities (like radiation,etc) being used, etc. So the cost of treatment will depend on the above and many other factors.
