Chinese Women Diagnosed with Breast Cancer Younger: Why?

Rising cancer rates in India

Rising cancer rates in India

China isn’t the only Asian country facing increased problems with breast cancer. The United States has the highest number of documented cases of breast cancer, China comes in with the second highest number, and India has recently moved into the slot of having the third highest number of cases. While India is still a few spots down on the list of cancer cases, this new data is somewhat alarming for several different reasons. First of all, the number of cases of breast cancer is growing in India at a fairly rapid rate. New data indicates that the number of cases has grown from year to year by 4.5-5%, which is incredibly high, especially when you compare it to China’s growth rate of 2%.
