Breast cancer is a malignant disease characterized by the out-of-control growth of breast cells. The breast is composed of fatty tissue, fibrous tissue, and glandular tissue, which comprises three parts – the glands that produce milk, the ducts that transport milk to the nipple, and the connective tissue that consists of fibrous and fatty tissue that connects everything together.
