# Breast Cancer : Types, Symptoms, Treatment and Causes

Breast Cancer is now very common in India. Breast cancer is a disease in which the cells of the breast grow out of control and it can spread outside through the lymph vessels and blood vessels, this is known as metastasized. There are three main parts of the breast ducts, lobules, and connective tissue. Mainly most of the breast cancer starts in the lobules and ducts.

Kinds of breast cancer:                                                                                                                                     There is commonly two kinds of breast cancer given below:

Invasive lobule carcinoma                                                                                                                              When the cancer cells spread in the close-by breast tissue from lobules, and this invasive cancer cells can spread to the other body parts.

Invasive ductal carcinoma                                                                                                                                        It is also known as infiltrating ductal carcinoma. It starts in the milk ducts and spread outside the ducts to surrounding normal tissues.
