WHAT EXACTLY IS BREAST CANCER?
Breast cancer arises when certain cells in the breast undergo abnormal growth and division. These anomalous cells accumulate, forming a lump or mass within the breast tissue. If left unchecked, this tumor can spread beyond the breast to other vital body parts, including lymph nodes, organs, and bones.
While breast cancer can initiate in various body parts, it most commonly originates in the milk-producing ducts. These invasive ductal carcinomas may later extend to other areas, such as lobules and surrounding cellular tissue.Podcast 1 - Dr Sybille Podcast 2 - Dr Sybille
