Abstract: Breast cancer is the second commonest form of cancer among women. Several studies have been conducted to identify potential risk factors. The association of serum trace elements like zinc has been found in different types of cancer. This study was conducted to see the serum level of zinc in breast cancer patients. Biopsy confirmed cancer breast, 50 female patients and 50 healthy female subjects were included in this study. Both control and study group patients were of same socio-economic status and dietary habits. Serum zinc level was estimated using standard absorption spectrometer technique. We observed significant low serum levels of zinc in carcinoma patients, as compared with normal healthy controls. This shows an association of serum zinc with cancer breast.
