October is the Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So I decide to talk about the breast, breast cancer, and the fact of breast cancer.
As we all know that all female and male in this world have breast. Breast is the tissue that overlying the chest muscles. The different between male and female's breast is in the female breast we have the tissue that specialized to produce the milk (glandular tissue) as well as fatty tissue while on the male is only fatty tissue.
Now let's talk about the breast cancer. What is the breast cancer? Breast cancer is when the cell that not belong in your breast take over the area of "normal" cells that supposed to be growth and this bad cells establish themselves.
The scary part is 1 in 8 women in USA will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in her lifetime. Breast Cancer is the SECOND leading cause of cancer among women.
Even though the Breast Cancer "rare" for male, but estimate 2.5K men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 400-460 will die each year.
So men, please don't hesitate to do your check up and mammogram also.
So what cause the breast cancer? Well, nobody know exactly what cause the breast cancer. What we do know that breast cancer is always caused by damage to a cell's DNA.
But don't worry, Ladies.... Caffeine, Deodorant, Microwaves, Cellphones, or even contact with somebody who has the cancer DO NOT cause Breast Cancer.
This is all the symptoms of inflammatory Breast Cancer:
