Breast cancer is a cancer that forms in the cells of the breasts. It can occur in women and rarely in men. In cancer, the body’s cells multiply uncontrollably. It is the excessive cell growth that causes cancer. Breast cancer can be:
Invasive breast cancer is when the cancer cells break out from inside the lobules or ducts and invade nearby tissue, increasing the chance of spreading to other parts of the body.
Non-invasive breast cancer is when the cancer is still inside its place of origin and has not broken out. However, these cells can eventually develop into invasive breast cancer.
Reduce breast cancer risk by adapting to healthier habits. Following lifestyle changes can lower your risk:
The most common symptoms of breast cancer is a lump or an area of thickened tissue in the breast. Though most lumps are not cancerous, but if you notice any lump or other symptoms you should have them checked by a specialized Breast Oncoplastic Surgeon , Other symptoms include:
An early screening or looking for cancer even before one develop symptoms can help find and fight cancer at an early stage. Since the number of breast cancer cases are rising, more younger women are getting affected, most are presenting only after symptoms develop (so usually stage 2B and beyond, rarely earlier stage) and we cannot prevent this cancer, all we can do is to detect this cancer early. BREAST AWARENESS is the way to go.
