October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Early detection is key in the fight against breast cancer. Let’s walk it out at the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer this Sunday at the Virginia War Memorial in Richmond, Virginia.
What is Breast Cancer? Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that starts in the cells of the breast. A malignant tumor is a group of cancer cells that can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. The disease occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get it, too.
