In brief: Breast Cancer
Abnormal cells in different parts of breast usually get killed by cells we naturally have in our body--call them "killer cells"one of the theories is these cells don't do their job for some reason and the bad cancer cells keep on multiplying-killing a persons normal cells- sometimes spreading the ca cells to other parts of the body sometimes there is an inherited reason--most, we don't know.
