Prevent Breast Cancer

In the biological terms, let’s understand what cancer is. Cancer is a disease that can be defined as the “abnormal growth of cells, the cells divide even more than they should and they form lumps called tumours  (Carol Noll Hoskins, 2001-03-15).” “Breast is the part of women’s body that has fatty tissues and produces milk. There are the glands in the breast that are called lobules and they are linked with the nipples by the slender tubes called ducts. The beginning of the breast cancer starts in the ducts”  (Carol Noll Hoskins, 2001-03-15). Breast Cancer is one of the common disease found in women. Mostly women are diagnosed with this type of cancer. There are various methods through which breast cancer can be diagnosed, the first one is mammography through which the lump is detected and its size and growth should also be taken inconsideration  (Carol Noll Hoskins, 2001-03-15). The second is Stereotactic breast biopsy and it is used to detect the even suspicious lesions that are discovered through the mammogram  (Carol Noll Hoskins, 2001-03-15)

·       Non-invasive Breast Cancer: It have two further kinds and they include: Ductal Carcinoma in Situ and Lobular Carcinoma in Situ  (Carol Noll Hoskins, 2001-03-15).


Ductal Carcinoma in Situ: This type of cancer is considered as the very usual kind in the Breast cancer. This type is confined to the ducts. Moreover, it does not extend through the walls of the duct  (Carol Noll Hoskins, 2001-03-15).

Lobular Carcinoma in Situ: This type initiates in lobules but does not force its way through lobular walls. However, there is high risk of invasive cancer in any of the breast  (Carol Noll Hoskins, 2001-03-15).


·       Invasive Breast Cancer: The two further kinds of this type of Cancer are: Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma and Infiltrating Lobular Carcinoma  (Carol Noll Hoskins, 2001-03-15).


Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma: This type is considered as the 80%of all the breast cancers. This kind initiates in the duct. In addition to this, the fatty breast tissues are invaded  (Carol Noll Hoskins, 2001-03-15).

Infiltrating Lobular Carcinoma: In this type the total percentage of Invasive Cancer Includes the 10 to 15% of ratio. They initiate in the glands. Moreover, this type can spread very easily  (Carol Noll Hoskins, 2001-03-15).
