Breast cancer is a disease that can develop in one or both breasts. It is a growth of abnormal cells that can cause a tumor.
Without treatment the cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body. Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer.
Breast exam: Look and feel your breast yourself every now and then, if you notice any changes or abnormalities contact your doctor. A doctor or gynecologist can also do a breast exam by looking and feeling your breast with their fingertips to check the skin and detect lumps.
Mammogram: A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast(s). In this way cancer can be detected early, even before you could feel any lump in your breast.
