Breast cancer is a disease that occurs when cancer cells develop in the tissues of the breast. It can affect both women and men and has a very small impact. There are certain factors that can influence the development of this disease, the most important of which are family history, age and unhealthy life style. The most effective prevention is early detection, so doctors recommend that women do breast self-examination regularly. Periodicals from 50 years to detect possible tumors mammograms also have to be made. Treatment of breast cancer depends on the stage of extension, as well as the patient's health, but is commonly used hormone therapy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, along with the breast cancer surgery to remove the tumor.
