Modern surgery is changing constantly and rapidly. It is not easy to follow the trends, especially for the resource-limited areas.

In low- and middle-income countries (LMCs), the infrastructure and resources for routine screening mammography are often unavailable. In such countries, breast cancer is usually diagnosed at late stages, and due to inadequate resources, women with breast cancer may receive inadequate treatment or palliative care. Breast cancer is very common. Previously the expectation of patients was getting the disease cured. But in the modern era, patients request a better quality of life whether rich or poor [1].
