One in every eight women in the United States develops breast cancer and It is the most common cancer among American women.

In Addition, there are many types of breast cancer that differ in their capability of spreading (metastasize) to other body tissues. However, the causes of breast cancer are unknown, although medical professionals have identified several risk factors.

Breast cancer symptoms and signs include:

  • a lump in the breast or armpit
  • bloody nipple discharge
  • inverted nipple
  • orange-peel texture or dimpling of the breast’s skin
  • breast pain or sore nipple
  • swollen lymph nodes in the neck or armpit
  • a change in the size or shape of the breast or nipple

Breast cancer can also be symptom free, which makes following national screening recommendations an important practice. It is diagnosed during a physical exam, by a self-exam of the breasts, mammography, ultrasound testing, and biopsy.

Treatment of breast cancer depends on the type of cancer and its stage (0-IV) and may involve surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy.
