With a background of working on precancerous lesions in patients during my PhD work, I have always felt the necessity for creating awareness as a major tool for cancer prevention and treatment. Breast cancer is on the rise and there is lot of lacuna in knowledge dissemination about it among the people. I would like to contribute in creating awareness about it among the rural and urban populace and also in conducting grass root level research regarding health status and occurrence among the people of Nagaon district.
