Overview

Breast cancer is a type of cancer that develops from breast tissue. It is the most common invasive cancer in women worldwide. Risk factors can be divided into two classes: modifiable risk factors including consumption of alcoholic beverages, lack of physical exercise or ionizing radiation and fixed risk factors including female sex and older age. The diagnosis of breast cancer is confirmed by taking mammograms, ultrasound and biopsy.

Sign and symptom

The primary symptom of breast cancer is normally an area of thickened tissue or a lump in the breast. Other signs or symptoms may include a change in breast shape or size, pain in the breast, dimpling of the skin, fluid coming from the nipple, or pitting or redness of the skin and swelling in the armpit. In advanced breast cancer, bone pain, swollen lymph nodes, breath difficulties, or yellow skin may also show up.
