What Is Breast Cancer?

Sometimes it's hard to get an answer to the most basic question: "What is breast cancer?" Your doctor may be too busy to take the time and your friends may not know enough. Or perhaps you want to review the information at your leisure.

If you want to know the basics about breast cancer, there are two excellent sites to help you.

The Imaginis Breast Health Resource website is intended to provide you with reliable, in-depth information on breast cancer and related women's health issues. There is an excellent page on the site entitled "What is Breast Cancer?" The page is rich in definitions and links to other pages on the Imaginis site.

Medical News Today is an independent British site that contains articles on a variety of health issues. Their article, "What is Breast Cancer?" is more simply written than the Imaginis article.

Together, the two sites provide a nice mix of details and explanations. You may want to read both.

A source that has brief definitions of breast cancer terms, and also includes treatment guidelines is on the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) site.
