Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women. However, if it is diagnosed and treated at an early age the survival rates are more likely to increase.
Cancer refers to the existence of unusual cells whose origin is abnormal, which grow autonomously. In the case of breast cancer, cells can persist in the breast or spread to the body through the blood or lymph vessels.
For the majority of breast cancer patients, the development of the cancer goes through several stages, this progression can take months or even years.
