Breast cancer is a type of cancer in which the healthy cells of the breasts become abnormal, grow in an uncontrolled manner, and form tumors. Studies show that almost 1 in 8 women and 1 in 1000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

It is the most common type of cancer after cancer of the skin. Recently the number of deaths due to breast cancer has reduced significantly which is due to many reasons such as the detection of cancer at an early stage, proper knowledge of the disease and properly planned treatment plans. 

The cause of breast cancer still remains unclear. However certain common factors have been identified in breast cancer patients. It is observed that women are more likely to develop breast cancer as compared to men. Increasing age is also a risk factor as it has been seen that older people are more likely to develop breast cancer. If there is someone suffering from this disease in the family of a person then that person is more vulnerable to this disease.

However, it is not mandatory that the person will have that disease because many cases have been seen with the patient's family having no background of breast cancer. Inheritance of this disease from the parents has also been observed.

There are certainly other factors that increase the risk of best cancer such as beginning your periods at an early age, reaching the condition of menopause at an older age, giving birth to a child at an older age, consumption of alcohol, never being pregnant and exposure to radiation at any point of time in the life span. Women which try to treat the symptoms of menopause by taking hormonal therapy are at increased risk of developing breast cancer.

Now the question arises how to identify breast cancer? So the most common symptoms of breast cancer include a lump or thickening in the breast, change in its appearance, size, and shape, changes in the skin over the breasts, redness of the skin over the breasts, change in the nipples and discharge from the nipples etc.

These symptoms are detected by your health care provider by a physical examination. Certain tests are conducted by the doctor for the detection of breast cancer such as a Mammogram, breast ultrasound, or biopsy is done by taking a sample of the breast cells.

In the modern world when many new diseases have emerged, homeopathy has proved its significance. It has proved very beneficial in the treatment of breast cancer. It identifies the root cause of the disease and treats the patient in all forms physically, spiritually, emotionally and mentally.

There are many medicines available in homeopathy which are effective in the treatment of breast cancer but the selection of the medicine required to treat the patient depends upon the symptoms of the patient.
