FitQuiz: How Much Do You Know About Breast Cancer?

Cancer kills more than a million Indians annually and affects many more. It is the second biggest killer after heart ailments, and the diagnosis is pretty shattering.

As for breast cancer, nearly a lakh women die of breast cancer every year in India. That’s the highest in any Asian country, twice as much as the US, which has an incredibly high incidence of breast cancer.

Though there are a number of legitimate risk factors for cancer, the web is overrun with unsubstantiated claims backed by minimal or poor quality research. So make sure you don’t fall for the wrong ‘facts’.

We have designed this week’s FitQuiz to ensure that you cover the basics of breast cancer and help spread awareness about this disease.
