Like many cells in the human body, Malignant cancer can attack breast cells, when breast cells become abnormal and begin to divide uncontrollably.

It usually starts from the milk-producing glands in the breast, or channels which turns milk to the nipple.

But the problem is that breast cancer is widespread. for example, In the United States of America, Breast cancer ranks second in the number of cases after skin cancer.

According to COS Paris Health care, France, most of the injuries are concentrated among women, from the age of thirty to forty-nine years.

Breast cancer risk increases for women whose families “mothers, sisters” have recorded previous cases of breast cancer.

It is possible for men to get breast cancer, But that is rare.

Like the rest of his friends from our enemies "Diseases", It is extremely important to detect breast cancer early. Then the treatment will be easier.

There are many different ways to detect breast cancer, some are very simple, and some need to be checked with medical devices.

These methods are as follows:

*First: a specialist doctor examines the breast with his hands.

The scan takes less than one minute.

*Fourth: Biopsy, In this method, the doctor takes a sample. it is sent to the laboratory, thus, the presence of breast cancer is definitively confirmed.

It's the unpopular way, But there is an old Arabic proverb that says "The last medicine is ironing with fire".

Doctors have to the mastectomy, when cancer cells spread in a way that drug treatment cannot stop.

But, in many cases, the doctor may decide to perform a partial excision.

Then breast cancer will be able to infect the axillary lymph nodes to become invasive, and then spread to other organs, which eventually causes death.

Early detection of breast cancer greatly reduces the risk of mastectomy.
