Breast cancer is a tumor that occurs when cells in the breast tissue mutate for various reasons. The resulting tumor first spreads around the tissue it originated from, and then damages the entire area. Many years ago, breast cancer, which causes limb loss if not treated early, had a very difficult treatment process. However, with the developing technology and the number of conscious people, it started to be diagnosed at an early stage. Although it is seen as a female disease, breast cancer is also seen in men at a rate of 1%. Breast cancer, the incidence of which increases after the age of 40, is a serious disease triggered by genetics, unhealthy diet and bad habits. After the cells in the milk ducts are deformed, they spread to the breast lymph, increasing the risk of cancer. Breast cancer, which is easier to treat when diagnosed as a small mass, can also cause serious damage to the patient’s body structure. There are two types of breast cancer. The first is noninvasive and the other is invasive. It does not show noninvasive spread. It gives positive results immediately from the treatment process and prevents body deterioration. If invasive, it spreads quickly, clogging the ducts. It can spread to the other breast except the breast where it is seen. According to cancer statistics in Turkey, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, accounting for 25 percent of all cancers that develop in women. The heart-warming news is that breast cancer can be completely cured when diagnosed early, thanks to great advances in treatment. On the subject, Medipol Mega University Hospital General Surgery Specialist Dr. Instructor Member Pelin Basım answered our reporter Müge Çakmak’s questions.
