What is Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is a type of cancer that originates in the breast(s).Breast cancer forms in tissues of the breast, usually the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and lobules (glands that make milk). It occurs in both men and women.

Breast screening is a way of picking up breast cancer at an early stage when it’s too small to be felt or seen. When breast cancer is diagnosed early, treatment is simpler and likely to be more effective.
