What is breast cancer?

The best way to understand how the inside of the breast is formed is by comparing it to a bush reversed. Its leaves are known as lobules and they produce milk that drains into ducts that are branches of the tree of the breast. They drain into 12 or 15 channels and large flowing on the surface of the nipple, like the branches of a tree drain to the trunk.

The breast is a gland that consists of breast tissue supported by connective tissue (flesh) surrounded by fat.

Cancer cells that remain confined to the lobule and the ducts are called "non-situ" or "invasive." They are also sometimes called pre-cancers, in recognition of the fact that these cells have not yet acquired the ability to spread to other parts of the body, which is the characteristic that most people associate with cancer.


Breast cancer develops from cells that line the breast, lobules and drainage canals.


An invasive cancer is one in which cells have moved outside the ducts and lobules into the surrounding breast tissue.
