Breast Cancer News

Breast cancer is a common form of cancer that primarily affects women, though it can also occur in men. It originates in the cells of the breast, typically in the lining of milk ducts or the lobules that supply the ducts with milk. Breast cancer can be categorized into several types, based on how the cells look under a microscope, with varying prognoses and treatment options. Common signs of breast cancer include lumps in the breast, changes in breast shape, dimpling of the skin, nipple discharge, or a red scaly patch of skin. Treatment often involves a combination of surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, or targeted therapy. Early detection through screening can significantly improve treatment outcomes.
