Malignant Breast Neoplasm

Breast cancer affects one in eight women during their lives. Breast cancer kills more women in the United States than any cancer except lung cancer. No one knows why some women get breast cancer, but there are a number of risk factors. Risks that you cannot change include: -Age - the chance of getting breast cancer rises as a woman gets older . -Genes - there are two genes, BRCA1 and BRCA2, that greatly increase the risk. Women who have family members with breast or ovarian cancer may wish to be tested. . -Personal factors - beginning periods before age 12 or going through menopause after age 55. Other risks include being overweight, using hormone replacement therapy (also called menopausal hormone therapy), taking birth control pills, drinking alcohol, not having children or having your first child after age 35 or having dense breasts. Symptoms of breast cancer may include a lump in the breast, a change in size or shape of the breast or discharge from a nipple. Breast self-exam and mammography can help find breast cancer early when it is most treatable. Treatment may consist of radiation, lumpectomy, mastectomy, chemotherapy and hormone therapy. Men can have breast cancer, too, but the number of cases is small. NIH: National Cancer Institute.  [from MedlinePlus]

Disorder of breast

Most women experience breast changes at some time. Your age, hormone levels, and medicines you take may cause lumps, bumps, and discharges (fluids that are not breast milk). If you have a breast lump, pain, discharge or skin irritation, see your health care provider. Minor and serious breast problems have similar symptoms. Although many women fear cancer, most breast problems are not cancer. Some common breast changes are: -Fibrocystic breast changes - lumpiness, thickening and swelling, often just before a woman's period. -Cysts - fluid-filled lumps. -Fibroadenomas - solid, round, rubbery lumps that move easily when pushed, occurring most in younger women. -Intraductal papillomas - growths similar to warts near the nipple. -Blocked milk ducts. -Milk production when a woman is not breastfeeding.

Breast-ovarian cancer, familial 1

Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome (HBOC), caused by a germline mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2, is characterized by an increased risk for breast cancer, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, and pancreatic cancer. The lifetime risk for these cancers in individuals with a mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2: 40%-80% for breast cancer. 11%-40% for ovarian cancer. 1%-10% for male breast cancer. Up to 39% for prostate cancer. 1%-7% for pancreatic cancer. Individuals with BRCA2 mutations may also be at an increased risk for melanoma. Prognosis for BRCA1/2-related cancer depends on the stage at which the cancer is diagnosed; however, studies on survival have revealed conflicting results for individuals with germline BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations when compared to controls. [from GeneReviews]
