Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women after skin cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in women in the United States. One-in-eight women will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. And, each year, a small number of men are also diagnosed with breast cancer. The most common type of breast cancer is ductal carcinoma, which begins in the cells of the ducts. Breast cancer can also begin in the cells of the lobules and in other tissues in the breast. Breast cancer that has spread from where it began in the ducts or lobules to surrounding tissue is called invasive breast cancer. In inflammatory breast cancer, the breast looks red and swollen and feels warm because the cancer cells block the lymph vessels in the skin.
