Breast Cancer (Female) (Definition)
Breast cancer results when glandular cells lining the milk ducts and lobules of the human breast begin to grow in an unregulated manner. The growth occurs initially inside the ducts but eventually breaks outside into the breast tissue and ultimately spreads both to the lymph nodes in the armpit and via the bloodstream to other parts of the body. Because of the promoting affect of estrogen almost all breast cancer occurs in women and is a rarity in men. The unregulated growth is due to both inherited and acquired genetic defects. It is the most common malignancy in women but it often curable if found early and treated effectively with surgery, hormonal therapy, chemotherapy and targeted therapy, or a combination thereof. Early detection before the malignancy becomes large enough to be felt depends on mammography/sonography and MRI imaging of the breast on an annual basis. ...Read more

Is it reasonable to have a mastectomy for early-stage breast cancer and not have chemo or radiation?
It Depends: A mastectomy does not guarantee you won't need chemo or radiation. The tumor's "personality" determines that. After a mastectomy, you might need chemo if the tumor is aggressive. Chemo treats your whole body to kill cancer that may have traveled. You might need radiation if you have positive lymph nodes, or if cancer was near the incision site. Ask your oncologist. It's complicated! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
