Biology of Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer is the most common cause of death in women. We first need to understand how cancer develops in the body for reducing breast cancer risk. What is cancer and how it develops can help us find ways to slow down its progress or perhaps stop it from occurring in the first place. Current understanding of the biology of breast cancer is very important and its relevance to treating and preventing the disease. Breast cancer is not a one disease. For example, understanding that breast tissue of girls and young women is especially sensitive to cancer causing agents can help direct risk reduction efforts to these groups. Making sense of cancer denotes taking a step toward more apprised decisions about our bodies, ourselves and our environment.

Breast cancer knowledge and Characteristics gives the information of what is breast cancer, it helps to have some basic knowledge about the normal structure of the breasts and how it comes and what are the its characteristics. Breast Cancer develops through different stages. These stages may or may not eventually lead to metastatic and invasive cancer. In most cases it takes many years for cancer to develop. Early detection of any cancer is important because it increases the chances of removing the cancer before it becomes life-threatening. The Signs, symptoms and stages of Breast Cancer are also very important for curing the disease.

A risk factor is anything that affects your chance of getting a disease, such as cancer. But risk factors don't tell us everything. Having a risk factor, or even several, does not mean that you will get the disease. Most women who have one or more breast cancer risk factors never develop the disease, while many women with breast cancer have no apparent risk factors. The best weapon in the fight against breast cancer is the ability to stop the disease occurring in the first place. Breast cancer develops due to a combination of genetics, mutations, environmental and lifestyle factors. It is estimated that one in four breast cancers could be avoided by changing a range of lifestyle factors - for example, limiting alcohol intake, exercising more and maintaining a healthy bodyweight.

There are several types of Breast cancer. The most common is ductal carcinoma, which begins in the lining of the milk ducts of the breast. Another type, lobular carcinoma, begins in the lobules where breast milk is produced. If malignant tumor invades nearby tissue, it is known as infiltrating or invasive cancer.

Medical researchers are learning about what happens inside cells that may cause cancer. They have identified changes in certain genes within breast cells that can be linked to a higher risk for breast cancer. Breast cells contain a variety of genes that normally work cooperatively with a woman's natural hormones, diet, and environment to keep her breasts healthy. Certain genes routinely keep breast cells from dividing and growing out of control and forming tumors. When these genes become altered, changes occur and a cell no longer can grow correctly.

Genetic changes may be inherited from a parent or grandparent may accumulate throughout a person's lifetime. Breast cancer usually begins in a single cell that changes from normal to malignant over a period of time.

Presently, no one can predict exactly when cancer will occur or how it will progress. When breast cancer is diagnosed — even if detected at the earliest stage — it is not yet possible to predict which cancer cells will be treated successfully and which will continue to grow and spread quickly to other parts of the body.
