What is Breast Tumors?
Breast cancer arises when a cluster of cells within the lobules (milk-producing glands) or ducts undergo abnormal changes, leading to uncontrolled division and harm to the healthy breast tissues. This condition can manifest as either a benign (non-cancerous) tumor or a malignant (cancerous) form of breast cancer.
In the case of a benign breast tumor, there is an abnormal growth of cells, but it remains confined within the breast and does not spread elsewhere in the body. While these benign lumps are not life-threatening, it’s important to note that certain types of benign breast growths may elevate a woman’s susceptibility to developing breast cancer.
