Breast Cancer

Description

Breast cancer is a type of cancer originating from breast tissue, most commonly from the inner lining of milk ducts or the lobules that supply the ducts with milk.  Cancers originating from ducts are known as ductal carcinomas, while those originating from lobules are known as lobular carcinomas.  While the overwhelming majority of human cases occur in women, male breast cancer can also occur.

The benefit versus harms of breast cancer screening is controversial. The characteristics of the cancer determine the treatment which may include surgery, medications (hormonal therapy and chemotherapy), radiation and/or immunotherapy.  Surgical provides the single largest benefit, and to increase the likelihood of cure, several chemotherapy regimens are commonly given in addition. Radiation is used after breast-conserving surgery and substantially improves local relapse rates and in many circumstances also overall survival.Source: Wikipedia
