Abstract:

Macro level variables could help determine health outcomes for Nigerian women. Screening for breast cancer is first step to early detection. The core aim of this paper is to provoke discussion about the significance of breast screening among Nigerian women and the development of breast cancer health improvement strategies by focusing on education, income and unemployment, neighborhood conditions, and transportation. Outcome of this article could influence policy-makers and healthcare providers in establishing ways to improve contemporary health situations. It could also lead to increased awareness of the fundamental circumstances affecting population’s health.
