Abstract: Breast cancer is one of the fatal diseases that greatly contribute to the death of many women across the nations. Basically, breast cancer can be detected using a wide slot UWB antenna. In this paper the performance of both antennas like wide slot and stacked patch are used to compare the detection of breast cancer. The specific absorption rate of both antennas is calculated in a normal tissue and tumors tissue, the result is contrast. From this comparative study it’s clear that wide slot UWB antenna has outstanding performance in this UWB frequency range and the size of the antenna is three times smaller when compared to the size of the stacked patch antenna. The performances of both the antennas were analyzed and the result suggests that the wide slot antenna performs better than the further antenna.
