  • It is an abnormal growth of the cells lining the breast lobules or ducts which can have an uncontrollable growth and has the potential to spread to other parts of the body.
  • When the breast cancer cells move to other parts of the body through the blood or lymph vessels it is called a metastasis which can spread further through the body to areas such as bones, brain, liver and lungs
  • The breast cancer survival rates have increased, and the number of deaths associated with this disease is declining steadily, due to factors such as earlier detection, treatment with a new personalized approach and a better understanding of the disease
