"In Sudan, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer accounting for 34.5% of all female cancers. Optimal chances for surviving breast cancer in women is by detecting it early, either by breast self examination (BSE), clinical breast examination by health staff or by mammography. BSE has an important role in the early detection of disease and hence its management as it enables women to detect breast lumps of less than 1.0 cm in diameter."
