Breast Cancer

Not counting some kinds of skin cancer, breast cancer in the United States is the most common cancer diagnosed in women, regardless of race or ethnicity. Breast cancer can begin in different parts of the breast, like the ducts or the lobes.

There are different warning signs for breast cancer such as a lump, swelling, redness, pain, or nipple discharge. Some people do not have any signs or symptoms at all. A person may find out they have breast cancer after a routine mammogram.

Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before there are signs or symptoms of the disease. Three main tests are used to screen the breasts for cancer.

The best way to find breast cancer is with a mammogram.
