Abstract: Breast cancer is the oldest type of cancer in humans. Ancient Egyptians were the first to note the disease more than 3,500 years ago. The condition was described fairly accurately in both Edwin Smith and George Ebers papyri. In 460 B.C., Hippocrates, the father of Western Medicine, described breast cancer as a humoral disease. But now a days we can find the breast cancer is one of the most common malignancies in women causing over 3000 deaths every year in the world. In the modern medical science there are plenty of newly devised methodologies and techniques for the timely detection of breast cancer. Most of the techniques used for detection of breast cancer using the image processing technology. This is the highly advanced technology which is used in many detection procedure of breast cancer. This technique provides highly affordable and reliable outputs. In spite of image processing technique, mammography or mammogram test is also effective for the purpose of breast cancer detection and now a days many techniques are developed such as an artificial neural network, digital tomosynthesis, molecular breast imaging, emerging mammography module etc.
