When we have diseases or don’t feel well, we tend to seek treatments and try to cure it as soon as possible. For this disease, there are multiple of reliable treatments and ways to cure this disease. This disease hunts women worldwide, and it’s the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S Life can be really difficult and no one wants any sickness or diagnosed with such a hard-to-cure disease like cancer. It’s the most common cancer in women in the U.S and many countries also. Breast cancer is not a deadly disease like prostate cancer that so much harder to cure. Death rates have been going down since 1989, due to more and more ways that can impact this cancer. Due to the public understands more on breast cancer by doing research, and the advance medicine makes breast cancer easy to cured. In the following paragraphs, I will be explaining on some of the risk factors, prevention, and screening on breast cancer that a woman can do to get ready and be aware of this cancer.
Breast cancer is highly diagnosed in many women. According to Merriam Webster, “breast cancer is a tumor that begins in the cells of the breast.” This disease is the highest leading cause of dead in the United States. Breast cancer is a disease that changes the appearance and function of a woman's body. There has been approximately 375, 000 deaths in the year of 2000 due to the disease of breast cancer.Breast cancer is a high concern all over the world in women, but with the correct knowledge and awareness breast cancer is prevented.
To acknowledge the health beings of a woman is quite scary knowing that in about 1 in 8 women in the U.S will develop breast cancer. By this year of 2016 going into 2017 there will approximately be 246,660 cases found. The 20th century is described to be the cancer century. One main cancer I wanted to talk about that has my full attention was breast cancer. The important ways of looking at breast cancer as a tremendous problem is because we are losing our women with this disease. Separating all of the issues by breaking down the main issues by categorizing to give clarification for those who know about it, and those know little knowledge or have no knowledge. Based on the information in my research I am supporting details for the definition of breast cancer, the treatments and cures for breast cancer, how things would be different without treatments, the causes and effects, stages, the breast cancer awareness month etc. However, around the world there is a ton of women affected by Breast cancers in the United States without signs and clues they will or have the cancer.
Cancer is where abnormal cells divide uncontrollably and destroy tissue. With each special type of cell through differentiation each cancer is unique like Leukemia and breast cancer.
“Cancer” is the name for a group of diseases that start in the body at the cellular level. Even though there are many different kinds of cancer, they all begin with abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. These abnormal cells lump together to form a mass of tissue or “malignant tumor”. Malignant means that it can spread to other parts of the body or Metastasize . If the breast is the original location of the cancer growth or malignant tumor, the tumor is called breast cancer. (American Cancer Society, 2014, as cited in cbcf.org)
Breast cancer is a disease in which certain cells in the breast become abnormal and multiply uncontrollably to form a tumor. Breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. (Only skin cancer is more common.) About one in eight women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. Researchers estimate that more than 230,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in U.S. women in 2015. Cancers occur when a buildup of mutations in critical genes—those that control cell growth and division or repair damaged DNA—allow cells to grow and divide uncontrollably to form a tumor. Breast cancer can be caused by inherited genetic factors. These genetic
We have all seen the pink ribbons. They have become a national, if not international symbol for breast cancer support and awareness. Breast cancer knows neither racial boundaries nor age restrictions. Females of all ages and ethnicities can develop breast cancer and it is the leading most common cancer among women. Calling attention to this often fatal disease is important by supporting its victims, families and friends of victims, as well as raising funds for breast cancer research. Though males are not immune from developing a breast cancer, for the purposes of this paper, this paper will be limited to information relating breast cancer in females.
One out of eight women around the world develops the most common disease called Breast Cancer. In the United States, about 200,000 women suffer from this disease and it causes more than 40,000 death each year. Breast cancer is a cancer cell (malignant tumor) that forms in the breast. The cancerous cells grow in the breast and then invade the healthy cells and the surrounding tissues of the breast and it can also spread into other parts of the body. Breast cancer is more common in women but men can also get it too. One of the reasons that males are less likely to develop breast cancer because males have less estrogen and progesterone hormones which is a higher risk of breast cancer cell to grow. There are many risks factors that can cause
Studies shows men are diagnosed with breast cancer contrary to the perception that this disease is solely diagnose in women. What is breast cancer in men? Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that starts from cells of the breast. A malignant tumor is a group of cancer cells that may grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread metastasize to distance of the body (Article 1).Women Manly have breast cancer but men can get it also. Some people doesn’t realize that men have breast tissues and that can develop breast cancer. The breast is made up mainly of lobules (glands) that can produce milk if the right hormones are present. Around the age 9 and 10 girls and boys have a small amount of tissue which is called a Ducts which is located under the nipples and areola (Area around the nipple). Puberty girl’s ovaries make females hormones causing breast ducts to grow.
Despite significant advances in research, Breast Cancer is still the most common cancer, affecting both men and especially women. In the US, 232, 670 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed along 62,570 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer in women and about 2,360 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in men in just 2014 .
Most people know at least one person who currently has or has had breast cancer at one point. Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers there are, affecting 1 in 8 women at some point in their life time. Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that starts in the cells of a breast. A malignant tumor is a group of cells that can spread to other parts of the body. Although breast cancer is mostly in women, men can get breast cancer too.
Cancer is started when the DNA in a cell becomes damaged. The mutated cells caused by the damaged DNA rapidly reproduce which can cause tumors to form. There are two types of tumors, benign tumors and malignant tumors. A benign tumor is non-invasive, and an malignant tumor is invasive. Breast cancer generally will form in the lobules or milk ducts. Lobular carcinoma in situ, also called LCIS, is non-invasive. That means the it forms and stays in the lobules. Lobular carcinoma is invasive. That means that it develops in the lobules and breaks through and has a potential to spread to other parts of the body. Ductal carcinoma in situ is non-invasive. It forms and stays in the milk ducts. Ductal carcinoma is invasive and is when ductal carcinoma
Nearly one in eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer at some point in her or his life (Breast Cancer Health Center, 2014). I am sure that almost everyone has been affected by breast cancer in one way or another, whether they had it or know someone who has had it. My mom’s aunt had breast cancer, as did my dad’s mother. My great-aunt luckily caught it early on and had it taken care of. Unfortunately, my grandmother caught it too late; it had spread all over her body and eventually ended up being the cause of her death. It is important to know the risk factors of developing breast cancer and what you can do to help prevent it, as well as knowing treatment options if you or someone you know is diagnosed with it.
In this paper I will be addressing breast cancer. Breast cancer is a form of cancer that affects the cells of the breast. This happens when cells in the breast grow abnormally. It can spread to nearby tissues and lymph nodes. This cancer can affect bones, liver, and even your brain. All women and men are at risk for breast cancer. It can affect people of every age, race, and ethnic group. Between the ages of 40 and 50, African American women have a higher chance of receiving breast cancer. The ultimate impact of breast cancer is death. Breast cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death in women.
We have been taught and are reminded frequently by public service announcements and by the medical community that when a woman discovers a lump on her breast she should go to the doctor immediately. Some women who have inflammatory breast cancer may remain undiagnosed for long periods, even while seeing their doctor to learn the cause of her symptoms.
