Understanding Breast Cancer

Understanding Breast Cancer

Breast cancer are potentially life-threatening malignancies that develop in one or both breasts. The structure of the female breast is important in understanding this cancer:

  • The interior of the female breast consists mostly of fatty and fibrous connective tissues.
  • It is divided into about 20 sections called lobes.
  • Each lobe is further subdivided into a collection of lobules, structures that contain small milk-producing glands.
  • These glands secrete milk into a complex system of tiny ducts. The ducts carry the milk through the breast and converge in a collecting chamber located just below the nipple.
  • Breast cancer is either noninvasive (referred to as in situ, confined to the site of origin) or invasive (spreading).
