Background: There are about 1.38 million new cases and 458000 deaths from breast cancer each year. In developed and emerging nations, breast cancer is by far the most prevalent cancer in women globally.
Aim: To investigate student’s knowledge and attitude about breast cancer risk factors, as well as screening programs as the risk factors with induced stigma in students.
Materials and Methods: A self-administered comprehensive online survey-based questionnaire was randomly circulated to female students (N=300) from university technical and medical field associates backgrounds. The data was compiled from student responses to questions on breast cancer.
Results and Conclusions: From the study, we conclude that technical students had a poor degree of comprehension as compared to medical field-associated students, who had a reasonable level of knowledge. Students have varying perspectives on social stigma and obstacles to breast cancer screening procedures. Breast cancer is a treatable condition because if it is diagnosed in time, the chances of recovery are greater. The best way to do this is to be conscious of how it can be detected and can be diagnosed early. This innovative study on social stigma and cancer treatment is at the forefront of adoption.
