The cancer society describes breast cancer as 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. Breast cancer is the top cancer in women both in the developed and the developing world.
The incidence of breast cancer is increasing in the developing world due to increase life expectancy, increase urbanization and adoption of western lifestyles.
