Breast cancer is a malignant neoplasm that develops from the parenchyma (glandular tissue) of mammary gland and actively grows, spreading to other organs. Breast malignant tumors ranks first among cancers in women but can also affect men (less than 1% of cases).

Early stages of cancer do not cause unpleasant symptoms. The signs manifestate when the tumor has already developed and metastasized: first to regional lymph nodes, then to the bones, brain, liver and lungs.

That is the stage when breast tumors are usually detected. At the same time, early accurate diagnostics and advanced treatment methods contribute to the high curability and survival rate: at 0, 1 stages of cancer the 5-year survival rate is 100%, at the 2 stage - 93%.
