What is Breast Cancer?

The body replenishes cells in different organs. When cells get old, damaged or die, new cells replace them. This is what is supposed to happen. Abnormal growth refers to a buildup of extra cells. When this happens either the new cells formed when the body didn't need them, or the old cells did not die. Those extra cells can form a cancerous mass or lump called a tumor. Those abnormal cells can destroy normal tissues and spread through the body.


What's the difference between benign and malignant?

Benign means non-cancerous. Benign tumors may be larger, but do not spread to other tissues or organs. Benign tumors can be removed, and usually don’t grow back.

Malignant means cancerous. The cells from malignant tumors can invade nearby tissues and organs and spread. These tumors can often be removed, sometimes grow back and can invade other tissues and cause damage. They can also be fatal.
