Diagnosing And Treating Breast Cancer

Good health is life's greatest blessings. Cancer is an ailment that arises from genetic mutations controlling cell growth. These gene mutations result in exponential cell division and multiplication. Breast cancer develops in the breast cells, both in males and females. According to the American Cancer Society, there are about 3.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.

The breast cancer tumor grows in the breast duct or lobules. Breast lobules are the glands responsible for the synthesis of breast milk, while the ducts are pathways that transmit the milk to the nipples. The tumor can also develop on the fatty breast tissue or the connective collagen fibrous tissue.
