What Is Breast Cancer?


Breast Cancer - Basics

Breast cancer occurs when cells in the breast tissues amass to form a malignant growth, or tumor. This type of cancer is typically found in the ducts that carry milk to the nipple and the lobules, which are comprised of tiny glands that produce milk. Signs that a man or woman may have breast cancer include a change in the size or appearance of the breast; detection of a lump in or near the breast; discharge from the nipple; the appearance of red or inflamed skin on the nipple, breast or areola; and other changes.
