The tragedy is that no cancer is painful in the early stage, so also the breast cancer. That is why cancer patients come in late to the doctor. In rural India ladies are shy enough to talk about something related to breast;and resist themselves to consult a doctor if there is a painless abnormality.
That is why, there a lot of campaign for self examination of breast for suspected lesion, which is very much accessible to self. Still many take long time to express their problem, when it comes to breast cancer.

It would have been better, if cancer more so the breast cancer would have been causing pain from the early stage.That could have saved many lives.
