I have breast cancer

I have breast cancer. What now?

Cancer is also known as malignancy. Basically, mutations in the DNA of normal cells result in the development and growth of cancerous or malignant cells which are then capable of invading adjacent structures and spreading or metastasizing to other organs and that is what makes cancer deadly. There are several types of breast cancer.

Ductal carcinoma. This is the most common type of breast cancer. Together with lobular carcinoma, it is an adenocarcinoma, which simply means cancer that develops in a gland. Ductal carcinoma is due to mutations in the DNA if ductal cells. It accounts for 80 to 90% of breast malignancies.
