Saying incidence of breast cancer [or any disease] is high in western world is meaningless. In India, we do not have proper statistics in any hospital. We do not have well established Biostatistics dept in any of our hospitals/universities. Moreover, we do not have any proper centralized system of collecting such data as they have in the US as NIH. Apart from this, still more than 65% of our population are in rural areas where basic treatment itself is at stake. So, we do not have any rights whatsoever to comment on the western world.

I agree.I have been conducting training programmes for women on early detction of breast cancer.Main focus has been breast sed to about 9000 women over the past 3 years.If there is nothing much we can do for prevention then early detection has to be the main focus.
