If you see the statistics, the number of patients diagnosed with breast cancer has increased steadily, and it is expected that it will continue to increase. According to experts, one in eight women has a chance of developing breast cancer in her lifetime.
This deadly disease usually starts off in the inner lining of the lobules or milk ducts that supply the breasts with milk, and then, the tumor can spread to the other parts of the body. The most common symptom of breast cancer is the formation of a lump or mass in the breast(s) and it is usually discovered during self-examination. The lumps are usually painless and hard, but sometimes, they can be painful as well.
