Breast cancer cells are not always predictable, often affecting the breast in different ways and growing at different rates. Some cancers are lazy and grow slowly. Others find fertile growing ground in the breast tissue and grow rapidly. Though doctors generalize the disease into certain breast cancer types, like invasive breast cancer or advanced breast cancer, you should not try to compare one case of breast cancer to another. Learn about breast cancer types and how they are different. One patient may recuperate easily after a simple lumpectomy, but another patient might need a radical mastectomy. Similarly, your grandmother may have died of her breast cancer, but there is no certainty that you will also.
