I take immense pleasure to invite one and all to the International Symposium on breast cancer, hosted by the Department of Pathology , Bangalore Medical College & Research. Carcinoma of breast has made advancement in its imaging, diagnosis and treatment approach. It is imperative that the postgraduates, young budding pathologists, attain all the information from the basics to the recent advances, in the terrain of breast cancer. A constellation of imminent speakers across the globe are invited to provide and share their knowledge and experience in the arena . I hope all delegates will utilize this opportunity at its fullest.
