  • Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer. Eventhough it is not as common in men, men should still be awareof it because they can get this disease as well. Early diagnosis isvery important because breast cancer is the second most lethalcancer in women after lung cancer. To help you with an earlydiagnosis and hopefully a speedy recovery, you should learnmore about this disease including its condition, itscharacteristics, causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment andprevention.The breast consists of milk producing glands that are connectedto the opening of the skin in the nipple by ducts. Fat and fibrousbreast tissue connect the gland and duct structure. In this areaare blood vessels, lymph nodes and nerves like all the otherparts of the human body.One of the common areas for breast cancer to occur are in themilk ducts and milk glands. Cancer occurs when cells in thisarea become abnormal and start to grow rapidly. These cellswill form a tumor. Most commonly breast cancer occurs in themilk ducts and in the milk glands. The tumors in the ducts arecalled ductal carcinomas, while the ones in the glands are calledlobular carcinomas.
  • Breast cancer is normally defined by different stages. Normallyit starts as a small lump, a tumor or calcium deposits. If nottreated early, the cancer will start to spread to other areas ofthe breast. If the cancer reaches the lymph nodes, the cancerwill then spread to other parts of the body through the bloodstream. Some of the likely areas that cancer will show up inregards to the breast are the lungs, liver or bones.It is not exactly known what causes breast cancer. Howeverresearch has found some factors that seem to increase awomans chances of getting it. First women that have hadbenign tumors are more likely to get cancerous tumors in thefuture. Also immediate family members that have had thedisease will increase your risk. For example if your mom orsister has had the disease, then you are at higher risk of gettingbreast cancer. If you have the following genes, BRCA1 orBRCA2, will also increase the risk. If you have been exposed tohigh levels of estrogen, then your risk level is higher. Thefollowing factors will also increase your risk: smoking, alcoholconsumption, weight gain and obesity and lack of exercise.
  • In most cases your doctor will diagnose breast cancer with amammography. A mammography is an x-ray that is designed toidentify any changes in the breast tissue and abnormal growths,in particular. In most cases, your doctor will examine the breastto decide if a mammography is necessary or not.The most common type of treatment is surgery and is either amastectomy or lumpectomy. The doctor will remove the tumor,surrounding tissue and lymph nodes. After surgery, the doctorwill likely use radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy toremove any abnormal cells. The doctor may also prescribehormonal therapy and biological therapy.The best thing that you can do to prevent breast cancer isscreening on a regular basis. You should conduct a self exam asoften as recommended by your doctor. Also you should getclinical exams and mammograms as often as recommended byyour doctor. You also should consider ensuring that you eat abalanced low fat diet that is primarily plant based, reduce yourconsumption of alcohol, stop smoking and get plenty ofexercise.
