What Is Cancer?

The body is made up of millions of cells that are constantly dying and being replaced. Normally cells divide in an orderly and controlled way. Cancer occurs when a cell divides and multiplies too rapidly. This produces a lump of abnormal cells known as a tumour. Tumours are either benign (non cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). There are more than 200 different types of cancer.

Breast Screening and early detection can greatly increase the chances for successful treatment.
