Be Aware Of Breast Cancer..

Breast cancer is a type of cancer that develops from breast cells. Breast cancer usually starts in the inner lining of milk ducts or lobules that supply them milk. A malignant tumor can also spread to other parts of the body. A breast cancer that takes place in the lobules is known as lobular carcinoma & the one that developed from the ducts is called ductal carcinoma. 

Breast cancer is the most common invasive cancer in females universally. It is 16% of all female cancers and 22.9% of invasive cancers in females. 18.2% of all cancer deaths globally, including both males and females, are due to breast cancer.
