Types Of Breast Cancer Most Information
Breast cancer is a type of cancer that develops in breast cells. It can occur in both women and men but is more common in women and girls. Breast cancer is usually treated with a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and/or hormone therapy, depending on the specific type and stage of the cancer.
Risk factors for breast cancer include being female, increasing age, having a family history of breast cancer, certain inherited genetic mutations (such as BRCA1 and BRCA2), starting menstruation at an early age, having children later in life or not at all, and taking certain medications (such as hormone replacement therapy).
There are several ways to help reduce the risk of breast cancer, including:
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Exercise regularly
- Limiting alcohol consumption
- No smoking
- Breastfeed if possible
- Regular mammograms and breast exams
If you have concerns about breast cancer or are at high risk for the disease, it’s important to talk to a healthcare professional about your options for screening and prevention.
