What Is Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is the type of cancer that occurs in one or both breasts. The cells of the breasts multiply spontaneously in very large numbers and lead to uncontrolled division of the cells. The kind of lifestyle followed and the environment that one lives in also matter to a great extent along with the hormonal changes that the body witnesses.

Breast cancer can begin in various parts of the breast. A breast is made up of three main parts:
  • Lobules: The lobules are the glands that produce milk.
  • Ducts: The ducts are tubes that carry milk to the nipple.
  • Connective tissue: The connective tissue consists of fibrous and fatty tissue that surrounds and holds everything together.
  • Most breast cancers begin in the ducts or lobules.
