Breast cancer is the condition where abnormal cells grow in the breast, resulting in a tumour. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women but it can affect men too, but not many. The exact cause of breast cancer is unknown but factors that are thought to contribute include: Breast implants (as the implants can bring changes into the breast tissue), hormone treatments and birth control pills have been associated with it, if someone has been having radiation for another cancer treatment, this could also induce it, women who are obese or overweight have a higher chance of developing it, dense breast tissue (more likely to develop if the breast tissue is higher density), it is a cancer that can run in the family amongst the women and if you have already suffered with breast cancer or suffer with breast lumps.
