Breast cancer is one of the most common lethal cancer types: according to estimations if the current trend does not change, in the next 25 years more than 25 million women can be diagnosed with this type of disease worldwide and more than 10 million cases will prove to be fatal. In Hungary, more than 2000 women die because of breast cancer in a year: we lose 5 mothers, wives or daughters due to this merciless disease in a day; one woman in every five hours.

This is an extremely high number considering that with early diagnosis breast cancer is curable. To make early diagnosis possible and to fight effectively against breast cancer, proper infrastructure is needed as well as women to attend screenings regularly.
