Breast Cancer affects one in eight women during their lives. It is responsible for more female deaths in the US than any other cancer, besides lung cancer.
From the National Cancer Institute:
Symptoms of breast cancer may include a lump in the breast, a change in size or shape of the breast or discharge from a nipple. Breast self-exam and mammography can help find breast cancer early when it is most treatable. Treatment may consist of radiation, lumpectomy, mastectomy, chemotherapy and hormone therapy.
