Transcript of breast cancer presentation

Breast cancer occurs when malignant tumors develop in the breast. These cells can spread by breaking away from the original tumor and entering blood vessels or lymph vessels, which branch into tissues throughout the body. When cancer cells travel to other parts of the body and begin damaging other tissues and organs, the process is called metastasis
WHAT IS BREAST CANCER?
Every person should know the symptoms and signs of breast cancer, and any time an abnormality is discovered, it should be investigated by a healthcare professional. Most people who have breast cancer symptoms and signs will initially notice only one or two, and the presence of these symptoms and signs do not automatically mean that you have breast cancer.
Adult women of all ages are encouraged to perform breast self-exams.While mammograms can help you to detect cancer before you can feel a lump, breast self-exams help you to be familiar with how your breasts look and feel so you can alert your healthcare professional if there are any changes.

HOW SHOULD A SELF BREAST EXAM BE PERFORMED?
TYPES OF BREAST CANCER
Ductal Carcinoma in situ(DCIS): is a non-invasive breast cancer where abnormal cells have been contained in the lining of the breast milk duct.

Invasive Ductal Carcinoma:means that abnormal cells that originated in the lining of the breast milk duct have invaded surrounding tissue.

Metastatic Breast Cancer: is cancer that has spread beyond the breast, sometimes into the lungs, bones, or brain.


Clinical Breast exams are an important part of early detection. Although most lumps are discovered through breast self-exams, an experienced professional may notice a suspicious place that fails to register as a warning in the patient’s mind.

THE VALUE OF CLINICAL EXAMS
Mammograms can often show a breast lump before it can be felt. They also can show tiny clusters of calcium called microcalcifications. Lumps or specks can be caused by cancer, fatty cells, or other conditions like cysts. Further tests are needed to find out if abnormal cells are present.
