What is Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is a cancer that begins in the breast tissue. Excluding skin cancer, it is the most common cancer found in women. A diagnosis may be difficult to hear, but patients should know that breast cancer survival has been increasing in recent years thanks to improvements in screening, detection, and treatment. Patients are often evaluated in a UT Physicians breast surgeon Houston office because of concerns they have about their breasts. The one question they want answered is simple: “Is this cancer?”
