About breast cancer

Breast cancer is a type of cancer where the cells of the breast begin to grow abnormally or uncontrollably. Usually there are 2 types of breast cancer, one which originates in the milk ducts and other which originates in the lobules. These cells can travel to other parts of your body through blood vessels and lymph vessels and when that happens, it is called metastatic (spread of cancer cells to new areas of the body

The surgery can take upto 2-3 hours. The treatment consists of Chemotherapy, hormone therapy, surgery and radiation. The type of surgery that can be done is based on a few aspects like- the size of the cancer, the size of the breasts and where is the cancer located in the breast.
