Tip of the Week

Because they're so near to blood and lymph vessels, which travel throughout the body, cancer cells shed by a tumor in the breast are in a prime position to sneak into the lymph or cardiovascular system, giving them free reign to explore the body. Cancerous cells that carpetbag in this way may find new homes in other tissues, colonizing them and causing a widespread cancer problem in the body. It's not pleasant to picture cancer cells on a joy ride through your bloodstream and lymph vessels. The goal is to identify and remove a tumor before it has a chance to send out nasty little chunks of itself, which is why screening measures are nothing to ignore. Learn about breast cancer types and take the time to be screened...it could save your life.
