DCIS, IDC, and Metastatic – The Difference

DCIS, IDC, and Metastatic – The Difference A tumor grows in the breast for at least 5 years before it can be palpated. That’s about 30 doublings and approximately ½ inch in size. According to the National Cancer Institute, tumor angiogenesis is defined as “the growth of new blood vessels that tumors need to grow. This growth is caused by the release of chemicals by the tumor and by host cells near the tumor”. There are many different types of breast cancer – some easy to diagnose and some more difficult.

Lymph Node Importance

Lymph Node Importance The lymphatic system is a network of organs and tissues that help rid the body of waste and toxins.

The movement of the lymphatic fluid is dependent on the movement of the...

Breast Cancer Detection Tool
