    Cancer is an age related autoimmune disease initiated by genetic mutations leading to increased proliferation rate and tumor formation. Accumulation of various genetic and epigenetic changes, in normal cells gives cancer cells a selective advantage over healthy cells, and lead to cancer initiation and progression. Interactions of tumor cells with other cells within their reach, the microenvironment, is an important component in carcinogenesis. Its treatment is based on our level of understanding of its biology. Breast cancer is a collection of complex and heterogeneous diseases with distinct histopathological features. It arises due to abnormal growths of the cells lining the breast lobules hence men and women can develop it, although very rare in men (less than ). There are different types of breast cancer, and the most common are the invasive and non-invasive cancers. Usually, it is.. View More»
