Breast cancer develops when a few breast cells experience abnormal growth. These cells start dividing more rapidly compared to healthy cells and start accumulating, becoming a mass or lump. The cells may even metastasize and spread through your breast to the lymph nodes and other sections of your body. Breast cancer usually originates in the cells located in milk-producing ducts or the glandular tissue called lobules. Hormones, environmental factors, and lifestyle also plays a crucial part in increasing the risk of breast cancer.
