What is breast cancer?

Every day, cells in your body divide, grow and die. Most of the time cells divide and grow in an orderly manner. But sometimes cells grow out of control. This kind of growth of cells forms a mass or lump called a tumor. Tumors are either benign or malignant.

    • Most common

    • Cancer cells develop in the ducts

    • Ducts deliver the milk

  • Lobular carcinoma

    • Cancer cells develop in the lobules

    • Milk is produced and held

Warning signs of breast cancer

Warning Signs of Breast Cancer

  • A change in the look or feel of the breast.

  • A change in the size or shape of the breast.

  • Nipple discharge.

  • A lump or thickening in the breast, the area surrounding the breast or the underarm.

  • A warm sensation in the breast.

  • A change in the look or feel of the nipple or areola.

Warning signs of breast cancer1

Warning Signs of Breast Cancer

  • Nipple tenderness, increased sensitivity or pain.

  • Blood or fluid other than breast milk secreted from the nipple.

  • Dimpling of the skin on the breast (appears like the skin on an orange).

  • The appearance of irritated, red, scaly, or swollen skin on the breast, nipple, or areola.

  • Breast pain.

  • Although breast pain is usually associated with benign breast conditions rather than breast cancer, it can be a symptom of either condition.

  • It is important to discuss any of these symptoms with a health care provider as soon as possible so that if breast cancer is present, it is more likely to be diagnosed at an early stage when it is most treatable.
