What is Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is a type of cancer that develops in the breast tissue. It can begin in the milk ducts or milk lobules, which are the parts of the breast that produce milk. Breast cancer can also start in other parts of the breast, such as the fatty tissue or connective tissue. The breast, like the ovaries, is composed of various types of cells. Breast cancer primarily originates in the mammary glands, which produce milk, and can manifest in different forms. While family history plays a crucial role in assessing risk, early detection and timely intervention can greatly enhance the chances of successful treatment.

Risk Factors for Breast Cancer

There are a number of risk factors for breast cancer, including:

  • Age: Breast cancer is more common in older women.
  • Family history: If you have a close family member with breast cancer, you are at an increased risk.
  • Genetic mutations: Certain gene mutations, such as BRCA1 and BRCA2, can increase your risk of developing breast cancer.
  • Early menstruation: Starting menstruation before age 12 increases your risk.
  • Late menopause: Starting menopause after age 55 increases your risk.
  • Dense breasts: Women with dense breasts have more breast tissue, which can make it more difficult to detect cancer on mammograms.
  • Obesity: Obesity increases the risk of developing breast cancer, especially after menopause.
  • Alcohol use: Drinking alcohol increases the risk of developing breast cancer.


The most common symptom of breast cancer is a lump in the breast. Other symptoms may include::

  • Changes in the size, shape, or appearance of the breast
  • Nipple discharge, other than breast milk
  • Redness, dimpling, or other changes in the skin of the breast
  • Pain in the breast or nipple

Having any of these symptoms does not mean it is cancer, but if one or more of them is noticed for more than two weeks then a doctor must be seen and an immediate health screening is a must.


If you experience any of the symptoms of breast cancer, it is important to see a doctor right away. Early diagnosis is key to successful treatment.
To diagnose breast cancer, your doctor will ask about your medical history and perform a physical exam. They may also order tests such as a mammogram, ultrasound, or biopsy.

Treatment Options

The treatment for breast cancer depends on a number of factors, including the stage of the cancer, the type of cancer, and your overall health. Common treatments include:


Surgery is often a primary step in the treatment of breast cancer. It involves removing the tumor(s) and may include procedures like lumpectomy or mastectomy. At Apollo Hospital Lucknow, we prioritize minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, ensuring quicker recovery times and improved quality of life for our patients.

Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy play vital roles in eradicating cancer cells and preventing recurrence. Our state-of-the-art facilities and experienced medical team are equipped to deliver these treatments with utmost precision and care.

Hormonal therapy

Hormonal therapy is a type of treatment that blocks the effects of hormones that can fuel the growth of breast cancer cells. It can be given as a pill, injection, or implantable device.


Immunotherapy is a type of treatment that helps your own immune system fight cancer cells. It can be given as an injection or infusion.
