“Breast cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the breast. It can start in one or both breasts. Breast cancer occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get breast cancer, too. It’s important to understand that most breast lumps are benign and not cancer (malignant).Breast cancers can start from different parts of the breast. If cancer cells have spread to your lymph nodes, there is a higher chance that the cells could have traveled through the lymph system and spread (metastasized) to other parts of your body.  There are many types of breast cancer, and many different ways to describe them. It’s easy to get confused; learn them.”
