Breast Cancer

Cancer occurs when changes called mutations occur in the genes that control cell growth. Mutations cause cells to divide and multiply out of control. Breast cancer occurs in the cells of the breast. Cancer usually forms in the lobules or tubes of the breast. Cancer cells also usually form tumours or lumps within the breast layer. The lobules are the mammary glands and the ducts are the pathways of milk from the mammary glands to the nipples. Cancer can also develop in the fat or the fibrous connective tissue of the breast.
