Breast Cancer

Breast cancer

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women in the US, followed by skin cancer. But it is often forgotten, despite being one of the most dangerous cancers for women across the country.

This article will focus on breast cancer in women, but in rare cases it can also affect men. Nevertheless, breast cancer that affects men is much more common than in women, and women forget about it, so this article addresses this issue.   

There are several types of breast cancer that are named after the area of the breast in which it begins. Triple negative breast cancer is a rare disease that affects only a small number of women and men in the US and Europe. The rarer forms of breast cancer include triple - positive, non - triple negative and positive - beta breast tumors.  

This type develops in the channels of the breast and is sometimes called a special type, and spreads to the chest wall, the channels and the lobules. It is called invasive breast cancer and can cause cancer in other parts of the body such as the lungs, liver and kidneys.    

In someone with breast cancer, cancer cells may only be present in a part of the breast that can be perceived as nodules, or they may begin in a glandular tissue called lobular or invasive lobular carcinoma. Breast cancer cells often end up in lymph nodes in the breast, such as the armpits. Once breast cancer has spread to tissues such as milk ducts, it can spread to other organs and tissues nearby.    

Some patients need to undergo a mastectomy to be cured, but breast cancer can only occur in one breast. Women at high risk of breast cancer may opt against mastectomies if there is no evidence of cancer in one or both breasts, such as the armpits. Some women choose to have a contralateral prophylactic mastectomy, although there is no evidence of cancer, as it can cause more pain and discomfort in this area.    

Some may decide to have the healthy breast removed surgically, which can cause more pain and discomfort than the carcinogenic breast, for example in the armpits.    

If you discover an unusual lump or spot in your breast or have other symptoms of breast cancer, make an appointment with a doctor. During the examination, the doctor will examine the breast for abnormal areas or signs of breast cancer. Some women who have breast cancer may find a painless lump in their breast, but they may have a different problem.    

Breast cancer programs in the United States work with the Transnational Breast Cancer Research Consortium to lead and help advance the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Breast cancer teams can also test for invasive breast cancers to see if the tumor is triple negative.   

The good news is that women with breast cancer can lead healthy and fulfilling lives after treatment if they contract lumps early. If you have already been diagnosed with breast cancer, remember that the results of do-over treatment will continue to improve with the improvement in cancer treatment.     

If you or a close relative have or have had breast cancer, most of us are less afraid of the risk of breast cancer. Women are much less likely to develop breast cancer, but may be at higher risk if their mother, sister or daughter is diagnosed with breast cancer, especially at a young age. If you receive radiation treatment for the breast as a child or young adult, your risk of breast cancer may increase. A person can develop breast cancer at any age, regardless of the age of their mother or sister.    

Patients who are treated, including those with breast radiation, have a 5-fold higher risk of developing breast cancer than patients who are not treated. The higher the risk, the more likely the treated patient is to develop breast cancer.

Unlike other invasive breast cancers, TNBC tends to return after treatment and spread metastasically to the breast. Radiotherapy and lumpectomies have become standard parts of breast-conserving therapy, because breast cancer can reappear in this way, can be a very traumatic psychological event, even if not everyone who has a recurrent breast cancer can "cure" it.   

Breast cancer does not have the last word, but there is enough evidence that breast cancer can cause serious psychological and physical harm to the patient, and this is the subject of a new study in the Journal of the American Cancer Society.    

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide, with 1.2 million new cases diagnosed in 2012, accounting for 25 percent of all cancers in women, according to the American Cancer Society. This type of breast cancer has the potential to grow and spread to other parts of the body such as the lungs, liver and kidneys. It is the second leading cause of death in the US after lung cancer and is one of the leading causes of death among women aged 50 to 64.
