Were you looking for information about Breast Cancer? Brest cancer is a common misspelling of breast cancer.
Breast cancer is a disease in which abnormal cell growth begins in the breast. Each year, more than 200,000 American women learn they have the disease and over 40,000 women die from it. While it's possible for a man to have this type of cancer, the disease primarily affects women. In most cases, the causes of breast cancer are unknown.
Among the risk factors for this disease are having dense breast tissue or a family history of the disease. Treatment options may include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Many women receive more than one type of treatment, and the choice of treatment depends mainly on the stage of the disease.
