Breast cancer ranks second among cancer deaths in women after lung cancer.
It is important to remember that a lump or other changes in the breast, or an abnormal area on a mammogram, may be caused by cancer or by other, less serious problems.
Factors that appear to raise a woman's risk for breast cancer include advancing age, family history, benign breast conditions, and a late menopause.
Early breast cancer usually does not cause pain and may cause no symptoms at all.
