The incidence of breast cancer is increasing in India. The mortality is relatively higher in our country due to the substantial delay in detection and diagnosis of cancers in our country.

Proposed Project Description

  • Breast cancer treatment involves chemotherapy, surgery, Radiotherapy and maintenance medicines.
  • Chemotherapy is given before surgery, after surgery or for palliation.
  • Surgery involves either mastectomy (breast removal) or lump removal.
  • Radiotherapy is required after surgery to take care of residual disease, and prevent a recurrence.
  • Some women will need maintenance medicines for 5-7 years after radiation, to prevent a recurrence.
  • Penn Nalam aims to provide a one-stop center for all of the above, free of cost. 
  • We plan to identify women with cancer, who are not able to afford the treatment and offer them free treatment which includes Chemotherapy, Surgery, necessary investigations and other maintenance medicines.
