Cancer is a group of many different diseases occurring when cells divide uncontrollably even though new cells are not needed. When genes are altered and grow too large, they may produce benign or malignant tumors. Only malignant tumors are cancerous, which can damage surrounding tissues and other body parts.
Breast cancer occurs when certain genes that prevent breast cells from uncontrollably dividing and growing get altered. The primary reason behind this alteration is yet to be known, but biopsy tests show that heredity plays a role.
Having breast cancer means dealing with skin thickening and irritation in the area, breast and underarm swelling and pain, nipple retraction and discharge, dry, discolored, and cracked breasts as well as weakness, fatigue, and unintentional weight loss. Going through these changes is very challenging and painful for the person, so this Breast Cancer Awareness Month, let’s educate every individual about breast cancer, especially its signs and symptoms for earlier identification and treatment. Let us also encourage them to reach out to home healthcare providers like caregivers.
