How do you tell if you have breast cancer?

Mammogram, etc.: The best test to screen for breast cancer is a mammogram. Most organizations in the us recommend beginning this at age 40, unless one is at high risk. This may be supplemented by yearly physician examination and monthly breast self-examination.

Yes.: The type of breast cancer reflects the cells of origin within the breast and what these cancer cells look like under the microscope. Different types include ductal, lobular, medullary, tubular, and mucinous. These types do behave differently, so this information is important; however, the stage of the cancer better predicts prognosis.

Too much: ..To say in 400 characters. I would only say that prevention and early detection are the key to survive it. Look for more info in reputable websites like american cancer society, susan komen, and national cancer institute.

One mutant cell: One normal cell inside your breast mutates (becomes abnormal), and begins to grow. The normal "stop" signal that tell a cell to stop dividing doesn't work, so the cells keep dividing. One cell becomes two, two become four, four become eight, etc. It takes millions of cancer cells to form a tumor you can feel. I hope that helps!
