What is breast cancer ?
Breast cancer occurs when the breast cells mutate and divide out of control.The types of breast cancer depend on the cells they affect in the breast.
DCIS occurs when the cells lining the milk ducts become cancerous. DCIS is non-invasive, meaning the cancer remains confined to its original site and has not spread elsewhere. It represents the earliest form of breast cancer.
Invasive ductal carcinoma
Invasive ductal carcinoma arises when cancerous cells from the milk ducts spread beyond their original location and metastasize to other regions of the breast.
Angiosarcoma is a rare form of cancer that obstructs blood and lymph vessels, as indicated by the term "Angio-" which refers to blood or lymph vessels.
Inflammatory breast cancer
Inflammatory breast cancer is characterized by swollen or reddened breast tissue and is often classified as an advanced and aggressive form of breast cancer.
Invasive lobular carcinoma
Invasive lobular carcinoma is the second most common type of breast cancer after invasive ductal carcinoma. It occurs when cells in the lobules divide uncontrollably. Lobules are organized in a grape-like arrangement, and this cancer is termed invasive because it can spread to nearby tissues.
