Pertaining the knowledge about the risk factors of breast cancer, a good number of mothers did not know the real risk factors that can predispose one to breast cancer.Mothers had little knowledge about clinical features of breast cancer and self breast examination.It can be concluded that mothers interviewed had limited knowledge about risk factors, and clinical features of breast cancer.Mothers do not know that breast cancer affects both men and women.There is need to uplift the educational and economic status of this people.
