A breast cancer can be a malignant tumor that starts from cells from the breast. A malignant tumor is several grouped cancer cells that may possibly grow into (invade) encircling tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. Breast cancer occurs generally in women, but men might get it, too. Many people don't understand that men have breast tissue and they can develop breast cancer. Normal breast structure To be aware of breast cancer, it helps to have some basic know-how about computers the normal structure from the breasts. The breast is composed mainly of lobules (glands that can produce milk if the correct hormones are present), ducts (tiny tubes of which carry the milk through the lobules to the nipple), and also stroma (fatty tissue and also connective tissue surrounding this ducts and lobules, blood vessels, and lymphatic vessels). Until eventually puberty (on average all around age 9 or 10), young boys and girls have hardly any breast tissue consisting of an few ducts located underneath the nipple and areola (area around the nipple). At puberty, a new girl's ovaries make woman's hormones, causing breast ducts to cultivate, lobules to form on the ends of ducts, and the number of stroma to increase. Even though puberty, men and boys ordinarily have low levels of woman's hormones, and breast muscle doesn’t grow much. To locate breast tissue has ducts, but not many if any lobules. Like all cells from the body, a man's breasts duct cells can undergo cancerous changes. But breast cancer will be less common in men because their breast duct tissues are less developed as compared to those of women and because they normally have lower amounts of female hormones that impact the growth of breasts cells.
