Most women will experience some type of breast problem during their lifetime. The good news is that most breast disorders are not cancerous. However, your chance of developing breast cancer increases as you get older. That's why breast cancer screenings and examinations are so important—and where you go for these breast care services makes a difference.
While more than 300,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed this year according to the American Cancer Society, there are also many other breast health concerns.
Common breast conditions include:
- Breast calcifications
- Breast cysts
- Breast lumps
- Breast nipple discharge
