Breast Cancer Facts

  • Breast cancer is a malignant (cancerous) tumor that starts from cells in the breast. The disease occurs mostly in women, but men can develop the disease, as well.
  • Approximately 1 in 8 (13%) women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime.
  • As screening programs become more common, more cases of breast cancer are being caught in the earlier stages of the disease, when they are more easily and successfully treated.
  • Symptoms of breast cancer can include: an abnormal lump or thickening in or near the breast or underarm area, any change in the size or shape of the breast, abnormal discharge from the nipple, change in the color or texture of the breast, areola, or nipple, any dimpling or puckering of the breast
  • Ladies get checked out annually and don't hesitate to give yourself Breast Exams.(Here is a guide)
