October: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. 

What Is Cancer?

Breast cancer is a group of cancer cells (malignant tumor) that starts in the cells of the breast.

Breast Cancer Facts

About Male Breast Cancer
All people, whether male or female, are born with some breast cells and tissue that have the possibility to develop into cancer.  However, breast cancer in men is rare, with only about 2,190 diagnoses each year.

Causes Of Breast Cancer
Although most people who develop breast cancer will not be able to pinpoint one specific cause,  scientists have learned much about risk factors that may indicate a stronger likelihood for cancer. Learn about the myths and factors that may apply to you.

Breast Cancer Genetics
Everyone has genes that pass along hereditary information from generation to generation. Sometimes changes occur in the gene code, and these changes are called mutations. Learn how gene mutations can affect breast cancer risk, as well as about how genetic testing works.

Types Of Tumors
Breast cancer tumors can be categorized by the size, type of cells, and the characteristics that fuel its growth. Learn more about benign tumors,  malignant tumors, and classification.

To understand breast cancer and its treatment options, it helps to know the anatomy of the breast and surrounding tissue. Learn more about the ducts, glands, and lymph system and how each is important for cancer development and treatment.
