Breast cancer (BC) is one of the most studied and lead- ing form of malignancy in human females. Currently, studies conducted in the field of breast cancer focuses on its early detection using noninvasive or minimally inva- sive techniques in lieu of traditional excisional biopsy, as cancer treatment is often simpler and effective, when diagnosed at an early stage. Mammography is the first step, usually performed in diagnosing breast cancer, but at times mammogram may not be able to provide a clear picture. In addition, biopsy is performed to confirm the presence or absence of tumor, which is associated with false-positive results. Consequently, the limitations of current screening methods have shifted the focal area of on cological research in applying biospectroscopy tech- niques for diagnostics (Gajjar et al.,2014)
