In the scenario of increasing evidence of cancers, the aim of the study was to evaluate the role of oxidative stress in breast cancer. For that purpose, 40 carcinoma breast cases and 40 age, sex matched controls were evaluated for serum MDA levels as an index of lipid peroxidation. The observations revealed that mean serum MDA in these cases was (12.1350± 0.104) nmol/ml while in controls it was (2.422± 0.709) nmol/ml. There was a rise in serum MDA levels in test group as compared to the control group which was statistically highly significant. The high levels of serum MDA indicate increased lipid peroxidation in carcinoma breast cases.
