There is an increased burden of breast cancer in both developed and developing countries including India. Globally, over one million breast cancer cases are diagnosed annually. Inadequate knowledge about breast cancer is documented as an important factor in preventing women visiting screening facilities, engaging in BSE, and delayed treatment, and thus contributes to the high morbidity and mortality rates


Evaluation study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of the awareness programme on knowledge regarding breast cancer and practice on breast self-examination (BSE) among 3015 rural women in Chittoor dist, Andhra Pradesh though providing health education on breast cancer and skill training on BSE


Women had adequate knowledge on breast cancer (Mean ± SD=8.04 ± 1.62) and very good practice on BSE (Mean ± SD= 15.21±1.98)


Conducting awareness programme for women will help rural women to go for screen and that could prevent increasing incident of mortality and morbidity rate.
