Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer is one of the cancers that begins in the breast cells. It can arise in both women and men, but it is rarely found in men. During Breast Cancer, uncontrolled growth of cells occurs in the breast. Breast Cancers come in various forms. Types of Breast Cancer are determined by the cancerous cells that develop in the breast. This cancer generally starts in the ducts that bring milk to the nipple or the lobules that produce milk.

Breast Cancer can either be non-invasive or invasive. Invasive Breast Cancer means when the cancer has spread to adjacent tissue or other organs. Non-invasive Breast Cancer means it hasn’t broken out of the breast ducts. Breast Cancer risk factors include age, obesity, drinking beyond limits, a family history of Breast Cancer, radiation exposure, reproductive history, tobacco use, and postmenopausal hormone therapy.

There are several options for Breast Cancer treatment, like chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, and targeted drug therapy. Depending on the size and location of the tumor, results of lab tests, and whether or not the cancer has spread to other parts of your body, you will be given a treatment plan.

Breast Cancer develops when unusual breast cells grow and divide. While the exact cause isn't always clear, factors like genetics, age, gender, obesity, smoking, radiation exposure, and family history can lead to Breast Cancer.

Doctors will inspect your breasts and ask about your family and medical history. They will carry out a few tests like below to identify breast abnormalities.

  • Ultrasonography
  • Mammogram
  • PET Scan
  • MRI
  • Biopsy

Breast Cancer symptoms differ from person to person. Breast Cancer symptoms and signs may include:
