Were you looking for information about Breast Cancer? Breat cancer is a common misspelling of breast cancer.
Breast cancer is a condition characterized by abnormal cell growth that starts in the breast. The disease mostly affects women, and occurs relatively rarely in men. Some risk factors include having a family history of the disease, abusing alcohol, and having dense breast tissue.
A few examples of possible treatments include surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. Breast cancer treatment is more likely to be effective when the disease is detected early. However, in many cases, there are no early symptoms (which is why screening is so important). When symptoms are present, they may include signs such as a lump in or near the breast, a change in how the breast looks, or nipple discharge, among others.
