Amazing Herald – Apr 22, 2019
Incidence of cancer is rising rapidly in all the countries. Early detection increases the chances of survival. According to WHO, one in every 12 women has the risk of breast abnormality. New methods and technologies are being developed for the early detection of cancer. The properties of the healthy cells vary when compared to the abnormal cancerous cells.
