What is Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a disease which is dreaded by every woman. It is characterized by  hard, painless lump in breast. It is very common now-a-days. A woman must   visit a gynaecologist, if she finds a lump in her breast.


What is breast cancer

Breast cancer often presents itself as a hard, painless lump in one breast. Although breast cancer is rare under the age of thirty and very uncommon before the age of forty, the disease must at least be considered in any woman with a persistent breast lump.
 

If I detect a lump in my breast, could it be cancer

Breast lumps are among the most common complaints of women who visit gynaecologists. Whenever women feel their breasts, they are paranoid that they will discover a lump. It is probably because of this fear they feel they have detected a lump in their breasts every time they feel them. That can only mean one thing - the dreaded C word - cancer. 

Three conditions must be distinguished in women with breast lumps: fibrocystic disease, fibroadenoma, and breast cancer.

a) Fibrocystic Disease:
Women with fibrocystic disease may feel many tiny cysts when they examine their breasts, and a consistency of lumpiness or doughiness. 

b) Fibroadenoma:
Fibroadenomas are solitary, firm, mobile, benign tumors commonly found in young women in their twenties.

c) Breast cancer:
Breast cancer often presents itself as a hard, painless lump in one breast.
 

Is breast cancer common

Studies have shown the frequency of breast cancer in women is on the rise, partly due to the increased awareness of the disease and its diagnosis.  It has also been seen that one in every eight women (or 12% of the women) will develop breast cancer.

breast cancer isn't anything to joke about my mother had it and it wasn't very pretty. breast cancer is very common and if you go get checkups on it and to see if you have it you should be fine.

it is very important to get a second or even a third opion.i had my brest removed several years ago. the doctor said that my lump had cancer tenducies. so he said the best thing to do was to have my breast removed. and to have kemo as well. at the time i was going through a seperation and was confused and frightened. but it all was done and after all the test came back it was determaned that i didn't have cancer. so make sure you have many oppinions.
