What is breast cancer?
Breast cancer is a type of cancer that develops in and around the breast tissues. One in eight women is diagnosed with breast cancer.

Only 3% of people with breast cancer are male. Every year in the America, breast cancer is diagnosed in approximately 14,000 people.

How can breast cancer develop?
The body is made up of cells that together form different tissues. New cells must always be created. This is necessary to grow and to replace dead, damaged or obsolete cells. This is done by cell division. Cells can be irreparably damaged in the course of time by exposure to all kinds of harmful influences. As a result, cell division can be disrupted. Too much cell division affects the balance between cell growth and cell death. Too many cells are made, causing a tumor.
