Were you looking for information about Breast Cancer? Breast canser is a common misspelling of breast cancer.
Breast cancer is a condition characterized by abnormal cell growth in the breast tissue. The disease is more common in women, but it can affect men, too. While the exact causes are unknown, a family history of the disease and denser-than-normal breast tissue are possible risk factors. Symptoms can include changes in breast tissue, changes in how the breast or nipple looks, and nipple tenderness and discharge
Fortunately, if breast cancer is diagnosed and treated early, most women go on to resume healthy, active lives -- although there is a risk of the cancer recurring. Typical treatment options include
surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and hormone therapy.
