Know the Facts:
- Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast.
- Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer in American women.
- Regular breast check-ups are the best ways to detect breast cancer early. Early detection provides you with an increased chance of recovery and a wider range of treatment options.
