What is Breast Cancer?
  • Breast Cancer is a tumor arising from the
    cells of the breast, wherein cells divide and
    grow without normal control. Most commonly from
    the inner lining of milk ducts or the lobules
    that supply the ducts with milk. 

8
Symptoms of Breast Cancer
9
Lump in the breast
  • Most breast lumps are not cancerous. All
    breast lumps, however, need to be evaluated by a
    doctor.

10
Nipple discharge
  • Breast discharge is a common problem and is
    rarely a symptom of cancer. Discharge is most
    concerning if it is from only one breast or if it
    is bloody. In any case, all breast discharge
    should be evaluated.

11
Nipple Inversion
  • Nipple inversion is a common variant of
    normal nipples, but nipple inversion that is a
    new development can be of concern.

12
Changes in Breast Skin
  • Changes in the skin of the breast include
    redness, changes in texture, and puckering. These
    changes are usually caused by skin diseases but
    occasionally can be associated with breast
    cancer.

13
Risk Factors
14
Uncontrollable risk factors
  • Gender Being a woman is the main risk for breast
  • cancer. While men also get the disease, it
    is about
  • 100 times more common in women than in men.
  • Age The chance of getting breast cancer goes up
    as a woman gets older. About 2 of 3 women with
    invasive breast cancer are 55 or older when the
    cancer is found.

15
Cont.
  • Genetic risk factors About 5 to 10 of
  • breast cancers are thought to be linked to
  • inherited changes (mutations) in certain
  • genes.
  • Family history Breast cancer risk is higher
    among women whose close blood relatives have this
    disease. The relatives are from the mothers side
    of the family.

16
Cont.
  • Personal history of breast cancer A woman with
    cancer in one breast has a greater chance of
    getting a new cancer in the other breast or in
    another part of the same breast. This is
    different from a return of the first cancer
    (called a recurrence).
  • Dense breast tissue Dense breast tissue means
    there is more gland tissue and less fatty tissue.
    Women with denser breast tissue have a higher
    risk of breast cancer. Dense breast tissue can
    also make it harder for doctors to spot problems
    on mammograms.

17
Cont.
  • Race Overall, white women are slightly more
    likely to get breast cancer than Asian, Hispanic,
    and Native-American women have a lower risk of
    getting and dying from breast cancer.

18
Controllable risk factors
  • Not having children or having them later in
    life 
  • Women who have had not had children, or who
  • had their first child after age 30, have a
    slightly
  • higher risk of breast cancer.
  • Recent use of birth control pills Studies have
  • found that women who are using birth
    control
  • pills have a slightly greater risk of
    breast cancer
  • than women who have never used them.

19
Cont.
  • Not breastfeeding Some studies have
  • shown that breastfeeding slightly lowers
  • breast cancer risk, especially if the
  • breastfeeding lasts 1½ to 2 years.
  • Alcohol The use of alcohol is clearly linked
  • to an increased risk of getting breast
    cancer.

20
Cont.
  • Being overweight or obese Being overweight or
    obese increases your risk of developing breast
    cancer.
  • Lack of exercise Studies show that exercise
    reduces breast cancer risk. The only question is
    how much exercise is needed. One study found that
    as little as 1 hour and 15 minutes to 2½ hours of
    brisk walking per week reduced the risk by 18.
    Walking 10 hours a week reduced the risk a little
    more.
