BREAST CANCER

What is Breast Cancer?

Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. In 2015, it was estimated that just under 30% of newly diagnosed cancers in women will be breast cancers. While most common in women, it can also develop in men.

Breast cancer develops from a cancerous cell that presents in the lining of a duct or lobule in one of the breasts. A malignant tumor is a group of cancer cells that can grow into surrounding tissues or spread to distant areas of the body.

Signs and symptoms of Breast cancer

The usual first symptom is a painless lump in the breast. It is important to note that most breast lumps are not cancerous. Most breast lumps are fluid-filled cysts or fibroadenomas (a clumping of glandular tissue) which are benign. However, you should always see a doctor if a lump develops, as the breast lump may be cancerous.

Symptoms could also include:

  • Changes in the size or shape of a breast.
  • Dimpling or thickening of some of the skin on a part of a breast.
  • The nipple becoming inverted (turning in).
  • Rarely, a discharge occurring from a nipple (which may be bloodstained).
  • A rare type of breast cancer, causing a rash around the nipple, which can look similar to a small patch of eczema.
  • Rarely, pain in a breast. Note: pain is not a usual early symptom. Many women develop painful breasts (mastalgia) and this is not usually caused by cancer.

Traditional treatment options for Breast cancer

There are various treatment options for breast cancer including surgery to remove the tumor and surrounding tissue during an operation, removal of the entire breast (mastectomy) or removal of both breasts (double mastectomy) along with surrounding lymph nodes if infected. After surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation are recommended.
