Learn About Breast Cancer Types
Breast Cancer Takes Many Forms
The only generalization that can be made about breast cancer is that it originates in the breast. Breast cancer cells are unpredictable, and can affect the breast in different ways and at different speeds. Some are aggressive and spread rapidly. Others grow slowly, or leave the breast and go to other areas of the body. Doctors sometimes try to categorize the disease into certain types, like invasive breast cancer or advanced breast cancer, but it's difficult to compare one case to another. Learn about the various types and how they differ. Someone else's experience, even that of a close relative, may be far different from yours.
