Abstract: Breast cancer is the second most common tumor in the world and more prevalent in the women population, not only a women disease its present in men even. Since the rootcause of the disease remains unclear, early detection and diagnosis is the optimal solution to prevent tumor progression and allow a successful medical intervention, save lives and reduce cost. Mammography is an x-ray of the breasts performed in the absence of symptoms. Very small tumors are detected, even before they are tangible or they manifest other symptoms. Conducted as part of a screening program, mammography is currently the recommended method for early detection of breast cancer in women 50 to 70 years. In the present scenario it is immediate need for best pre-screening tool to identify the abnormality of the mammogram images in the earlier stage itself. The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of recent advances in the development breast cancer diagnosis. We begin with a brief introduction to some basic concepts related to breast cancer detection and diagnosis. and later paper will discuss the recent work done in this field.
