What is the difference between a benign breast condition and breast cancer?
ESSENTIAL INFORMATION ABOUT OVARIAN CANCER http://www.imaginis.com/ovarian-cancer/i… Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cancer among women and the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths in women. While the majority of women who develop ovarian cancer have no known risk factors for the disease, researchers have identified a few factors that increase a woman’s risk of developing ovarian cancer. Like many cancers, ovarian cancer can be highly treatable if detected in early stages. However, many cases of ovarian cancer are not diagnosed until advanced stages. This is because the symptoms of ovarian cancer can be very subtle (“silent”) or unnoticeable until the disease has progressed significantly. This newly updated article provides information about symptoms, risk factors, diagnostic tests, and treatment options for ovarian cancer.
A benign breast condition is any non-cancerous breast abnormality. The most common benign breast conditions include fibrocystic change, benign breast tumors, and breast inflammation. Most benign breast conditions such as fibrocystic change or fibroadenomas (small tumors) do not increase a woman s risk for breast cancer later in life. However, lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) and atypical hyperplasia (dangerous increase in number of breast cells) have been identified as markers for breast cancer.
