Cancer causes cells in the body to change and grow out of control. It is one of the most dreaded diseases of modern world although multidisciplinary scientific investigations are making best efforts to combat this disease. Breast cancer begins in breast tissue, which is made up of glands for milk production, called lobules and ducts that connect lobules to the nipple. Normally, breast cancer develops from cells lining the milk ducts and slowly grows into a lump or a tumour. Breast cancer may be invasive or non-invasive.

Non-invasive breast cancer is called “in situ” and may remain inactive for entire lifetime. Women with breast cancer need to get precautions during COVID-19. Specially, for the fatty tissue tumor increase for those who have already detected breast cancer. This paper studied the increase of masses in breast cancer patient during the lockdown period. It is due to mental anxiety of patients
