::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::BREAST CANCER::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Breast cancer occurs when cells in the breast multiply out of control, forming an abnormal mass (tumor) that tends to invade surrounding tissues. Because cancer cells grow destructively, they are also called malignant. The most common breast cancer, ductal carcinoma, starts in the lactiferous ducts that transport breast milk to the nipple. Another type, lobular carcinoma, starts in the mammary gland lobules that produce milk. Carcinoma in situ (CIS) is the term used for a small, early cancer that does not involve surrounding tissues. Invasive breast cancer is larger and spreads to lymphatic vessels and lymph nodes under the arm (axillary lymph nodes). The worst form, metastatic cancer, spreads to other parts of the body. Breast cancer is diagnosed in 1 in 8 women in the United States with most cases occurring in women over age 50. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, following lung cancer. Rarely, this disease can occur in men.
