The burden of cancer incidence and mortality is increasing worldwide making it the leading cause of mortality in 2020 with an ascribable estimate of ten million deaths. In the same year, 19.3 million new cancer cases were recorded with the most common being female breast cancer accounting for 11.7 percent of all registered cancer cases [1]. This increase in incidence over the years is attributed to aging of the population with the accumulation of risk factors, cellular insults, and loss of repair mechanisms with older age. The burden of cancer, specifically breast cancer, can be reduced by implementing strategies designed to decrease delays and barriers to diagnosis and patient care. Breast cancer incidence and prevalence has increased due to screening, early detection, and improvements in treatment outcomes.
