Well I want to start by saying that many different cancers affect all of our lives. I don’t think that there is single person that could say that they don’t personally know someone that has been affected by some form of Cancer. Some of the information in the article can be applied to various forms of cancer but as a request i am writing this article dedicated to Breast Cancer. Keep fighting!!
What is Breast Cancer?
Breast cancer generally starts in the cells in the breast. They may start within the ducts (this is called ductal carcinoma) or in the lobules (lobular carcinoma). Ductal carcinoma is the most common type of breast cancer.
Cancer develops when there is damage to the genetic code of a cell (The DNA) that results in the cell growing and reproducing out of control. Most of the time when DNA becomes damaged the cells are able to repair itself or the cell dies however with Cancer the cell does not repair or die instead it replicates out of control.
Can I avoid Breast Cancer?
