What is it? Abnormal cell growth in an uncontrolled way
is called as cancer. Your breasts are made up of glands
which consist of cells. These glands produce breast milk
after pregnancy. The cells that make the glands sometimes
may become uncontrolled and grow in an orderly manner and
cause a lump.
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in
females. WHO (World Health Organization) estimated that
breast cancer is the main cause of cancer death among
women. Some breast cancers may occur in males but it is
very rare. When you find a small lump in your breast, be
aware, it may be breast cancer.
All lumps that you find may not be an indicator of
breast cancer. But find it out, it may be also. In general
lumps in your breast do not mean cancer in most of the
cases. But make it sure through checking by a medical
professional. There are two types of lumps or tumours, one
is benign and the other is malignant. Benign tumours do not
spread but the malignant do. They are the breast cancer
Breast cancer starts with a limp and then spread to
other parts of your body. It may grow quickly or slowly.

to 90% Lobular carcinoma 10% Metaplastic carcinoma
Inflammatory breast cancer. Papillary carcinoma 1%
Medullary carcinoma 5% Colloid carcinoma 2%. There types of
breast cancers are what you should always be aware of.
