The term “breast cancer” refers to a malignant tumor that has developed from breast cells. Generally, breast cancer originates in the cells of the lobules, which are the milk-producing glands, or in the ducts, which are the routes that transport milk from the lobules to the nipple. Less frequently, breast cancer can originate in the stromal tissues, which include the fatty and fibrous connective tissues of the breast.
Over time, cancer cells may invade healthy surrounding breast tissue and reach lymph nodes in the armpits, and from there can access to other parts of the body. The stages of breast cancer indicate how far the cancer cells have spread beyond the original tumor.
Breast cancer is always caused by a genetic abnormality. 5-10% of the cases are the product of an inherited anomaly and 85-90% of breast cancer cases have their origin in genetic anomalies linked to the aging process.
