Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death by cancer for Honduran women, after cervical-uterine cancers, of which there are about 1,600 new cases annually.

From 2005 to 2009, there were 666 cases of breast cancer diagnosed in men and 2,483 in women.

But Dr. Xioleth Rodríguez, of the National Cancer Programme at the Secretariat of Health, says the full extent of the disease is unknown due to under-reporting.
