Cancer arises when mutations occur in genes that are responsible for cell growth. These mutations cause the cell to divide and multiply rapidly. Breast cancer is cancer that occurs in the breast. Generally, the cancer is found in the lobules or breast ducts. The former produce milk, while the latter are the pathways by which milk is brought from the glands to the nipples. The cancer can also occur in fatty tissues within the breast. .

The uncontrolled division of cells in the breast invades the healthy tissue and travel to the lymph nodes found under the arms. Once it gets to these lymph nodes, it can spread fast as it is a primary pathway through which the cancer moves to other parts of the body. There is no single cause of breast cancer. However, there are various things that are certainly affect your chances of getting it. Some of these include:

  • Age – Risk of developing breast cancer increases with age.
  • Alcohol consumption • Dense breast tissue
  • Genes – There are many gene mutations that increase the chances of getting breast cancer.
  • Early menstruation – Chances of getting breast cancer increase if you had your first period before the age of 12.
  • Having children later in life – Women who don’t give birth to their first child until after 35 years of age have an increased risk of getting breast cancer.
  • Never having children – Women who never become pregnant are at a higher risk of developing breast cancer..

The treatment of breast cancer depends on many factors. These include which stage you’re at, how big the tumor has become, and how invasive it is. Your doctor will start off with determining the size, stage, and grade of the cancer. The best treatment option is to get a surgery and get the tumor and the surrounding tissue removed. Other treatment options are available as well which include chemotherapy, radiation, or hormone therapy. Chemotherapy is a drug-based treatment which is often used in conjunction with other treatments, though many people undergo this treatment on its own too. Radiation therapy utilizes high-power radiation beams to kill cancerous cells and is done through a machine on the body. Your doctor may also recommend hormone therapy if the cancer is sensitive to hormones. The blocking of two hormones – estrogen and progesterone – that spur the growth of cancer tumors are blocked that can help slow down or even stop the growth of cancer. It is also important to detect any unusual lumps in the breast early. Even if your problem doesn’t turn out to be cancerous, remember that early treatment is important. .
