Nutrition for Prevention of Breast Cancer


What is Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is a kind of cancer that develops from breast cells. Breast cancer usually starts off in the inner lining of milk ducts or the lobules that supply them with milk.


Are you at risk of getting breast cancer?

All women are at risk for breast cancer, and as you get older, your risk increases. Breast Self Examination (BSE) and breast mammogram can help to detect breast cancer early when it is most treatable.
Treatment may consist of radiation, lumpectomy (surgical removal of breast lump and some tissue around it), mastectomy (surgical removal of one or both breast, partially or completely), and chemotherapy and hormone therapy.
