Methods of Treatment
Cancer is the out of control growth of abnormal cells, and there are over 100 types of cancer
Usually, old or damaged cells die off, but cancer cells reproduce abnormally. As they multiply, they create a mass of tissues called tumors.
Most cancers form solid tumors, but cancers such as leukemia, do not.
Cancer are also malignant, which means that they spread to other tissues. Cancer cells can also get into the blood system, which can spread to other organs of the body.

The main types of treatments are:
Surgery- An operation removing the cancer
Radiotherapy- Using radiation waves to shrink the cancer tumor
Chemotherapy- Using chemicals to treat cancer
Biological treatments- Using the body's immune system to fight off the cancer cells
Some other methods of treatment are:
Mastectomy- The surgical removal of one or both breasts.
Some symptoms of breast cancer are:
the swelling of all or part of the breast
skin irritation or dimpling of the breast

Personal Experience
What we put on our bodies can effect our lives immensely. Therefore, you should be careful of what is being applied. It can be anything from the toothpaste you brush your teeth with to the lotion you rub on your arms and your legs. Not to forget the deodorant you put under your arms. A family member of mine encountered an experience where they used Dove deodorant and they began getting lumps under their arms. They went to the doctor immediately and were told the problem was the deodorant the were using. The doctor recommended a new deodorant that DID NOT have antiperspirant in it. It immediately started to help the lumps, until hey disappeared completely. This is an important factor because antiperspirant contains things that are bad for your body. Do the right things for your body, before it is too late. Go to your doctor and see what the best choices are that can help your body. ~ Malasia Milton R.E.
