Abstract

The Asian Society of Mastology (ASOMA) was established with an attempt to bring together experts in the field of breast surgery, radiation oncology, medical oncology, radiology, pathology, and breast care nursing to update and improve care for the patients with various breast diseases in developing countries. The ASOMA-proposed “Standards of Care for Breast Cancer Patients” has been developed with an attempt to identify obstacles and provide possible solutions to improve quality of care for breast cancer patients. Besides these recommendations for cancer care, issues related to common benign breast diseases, viz. non-lactation mastitis, granulomatous mastitis, high-risk lesions, and issues related to triple assessment, were also deliberated.
