  • Description:
    Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that develops from the cells of the breast. It is the most common type of cancer among women in the United States. It is most often curable when found early. The normal breast consists of three main components: the lobules (milk-producing glands), the ducts (thin tubes that connect the lobules to the nipple) and the stroma (fatty tissue and ligaments surrounding the ducts and lobules, blood vessels, and lymphatic vessels). About 80% of breast cancers start in the ducts.
