Breast cancer is a cancer that starts in the cells of the breast. Worldwide breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer after lung cancer (10.4% of all cancers, both men and women included) and the fifth most common cause of cancer death. In 2004, breast cancer caused 519,000 deaths worldwide (7% of deaths due to cancer, almost 1% of all deaths).

Breast cancer is about 100 times as often in women as in men, but survival is equal in both sexes.

Not knowing what is wrong with our bodies can sometimes be easier than that. Perhaps people think that the way you first hear the heart wrenching words "you have cancer." Fear that you are experiencing now is worse or better than what you have for the past week or so, while you wait for the biopsy report? Maybe not, but there is one thing that is different, you now have control over that fear. Cancer causes anxiety, and you are entitled to your fear.

It is important to remember that yes, cancer can do some terrible things, but one thing that can not do is remove that we are. So it does not matter if you're a fighter in the past now is the time. If something good to say about cancer is that it produces more soldiers than almost any other situation in which a person may face.

All cancer is sad, but if a woman is facing a potential disfiguring as breast cancer, it seems that a double whammy. Maybe it's just the fact that the bottom line is that you can learn to cope with the loss of a breast or both. You can not live with untreated cancer.
