Introduction
Breast cancer is only one of 200 different types of cancer. ?  It is considered a woman??™s disease but both men and women have the disease. ?

Cancer occurs when cells divide uncontrollably. ?  Cells keep dividing even though new cells are not needed. ?  Change from normal to cancerous cells requires gene alterations. ?  Altered genes and uncontrolled growth may lead to tumors. ?  These tumors can be benign (NOT cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). ?  Benign tumors won??™t spread but it can damage tissues around it. ?  Malignant tumors invade, damage, and destroy nearby tissues and can spread. ? 
Cancer can spread throughout the body when cancer cells break away from malignant tumors and enter the bloodstream. ?  Cancer cells from breast cancer are mostly found in the lymph nodes under the arm when it ???spreads.??? ?  When cancer spreads to other parts of the body, it has the same name as the original cancer. ?  So, if you breast cancer ends up in your lungs, it is still called breast cancer! ?
