Breast cancer is an uncontrolled growth of cancer forms in the cells of the breasts.
Breast cancer can occur in both men and women, but it’s far more common in women. In Malaysia, 1 in 19 women has a risk of getting breast cancer in their lifetime.
In its early stages, breast cancer may not cause any symptoms. In many cases, the symptoms of breast cancer appear as an area of thickened tissue in the breast or a lump in the breast or an armpit, and doctors will advise mammogram or breast ultrasound. However, not all lumps are cancer.
