Delivering his address, Dr Raghu Ram hoped that by next year, the association would evolve into a truly multidisciplinary organisation with integration of breast radiologists and breast pathologists in its fold, who are, in fact, the “eyes and ears” to a breast surgeon. He also hoped that ABSI would encourage the concept of breast care nurses, who should play a pivotal role in supporting, comforting and reassuring patients and their relatives. This aspect of breast cancer care, which is hugely deficient in India, must be given as much importance as is given to assessment and treatment, he said.
