Breast cancer is the most common female malignancy in Nigeria with an incidence rate of about 54.3/100,000.This rate is steadily on the rise and is associated with increased mortality.

Among Nigerian women, breast cancer is diagnosed at a younger age and later stage (>80% with stage III/IV), a higher proportion of tumors are triple negative (~40%), and both overall and stage-specific survival is worse than in high-income countries.
