Breast Cancer Glossary

Breast cancer is currently the most common form of cancer among women. Most patients with this diagnosis have likely had the cancerous mass for 5 to 10 years before the diagnosis. Cancers can be easily felt in the breast when they reach a size of approximately 1cm. A lump of this size contains approximately one billion cells, which is the result of 30 doublings of a single cancer cell. Assuming that a breast lump grows with a doubling time of 100 days, it would take approximately 10 years to reach a point where it could be felt.

Breast cancer may metastasize to almost any organ in the body if not stopped. The most common sites are skin around a lumpectomy or mastectomy scar, scalp, lymph nodes, bone, lung, liver, and brain. New Hope Unlimited’s innovative holistic treatment programs are designed to rebuild the immune system in order to help prevent any further progression or reoccurrence.

Types of Breast Cancer

There are several types and stages of Breast Cancer. Breast tumors can be either benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Our team of physicians and researchers understands that each type of breast cancer responds to treatment in different ways. Basically, each cancer type and location is unique. This is why New Hope Unlimited works in conjunction with the patient and her primary care physician to develop an individualized treatment protocol in order to effectively reduce the size and symptoms of the breast cancer.

  • Inflammatory Breast Cancer is characterized by a diffused inflammation and enlargement of the breast, sometimes without a mass.
  • Ductal Carcinoma in Situ is the most common type of noninvasive breast cancer. These cancer cells are found within the milk ducts but have not yet spread into the breast tissue.
  • Invasive Ductal Carcinoma is the most common type of invasive breast cancer, and is responsible for approximately 80% of all cancers. These cancer cells are found in both the milk ducts and the breast tissue. Invasive ductal carcinoma may spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body if not stopped.
  • Invasive Lobular Carcinoma is responsible for approximately 10% to 15% of all breast cancers.  These cancer cells first grow in the lobes of the breast and have the ability to metastasize to other parts of the breast and also to other parts of the body.

Stage 0 (Carcinoma in Situ)
There are two types of Stage 0 Breast Cancer: Lobular Carcinoma in Situ (LCIS) and Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS). In LCIS, there are abnormal cells in a lobule’s lining. Even though a diagnosis of LCIS in one breast increases the risk of cancer for both breasts, the cancer is usually noninvasive. In DCIS, there are abnormal cells in a duct’s lining. Although the abnormal cells found in DCIS have not yet moved to the other breast tissue, the cancer can become invasive if left untreated.
Stage I
The tumor is Stage I Breast Cancer is no larger than three-quarters of an inch (approximately 2cm) across. Stage I is considered an early stage invasive cancer, although cancer cells have not yet spread to other parts of the body.
Stage II
A Stage II tumor is typically between 2cm to 5cm (three-quarters of an inch to 2 inches) across. It is possible that during Stage II, the cancer has spread to lymph nodes near the breast.
Stage III
Stage III is considered a locally advanced cancer. This means that the cancer has spread to nearby tissue or lymph nodes.
Stage IV
Stage IV cancer has spread to other parts of the body. New Hope Unlimited’s treatment strategy for Stage IV cancer focuses on each cancer site individually in order to effectively reduce symptoms and improve the patient’s quality of life during recovery.

Breast Cancer Symptoms

Most breast cancers are discovered as a lump by the female herself. Some females may have a history of pain with no mass; however, this presentation is less common. The following are possible breast cancer symptoms, breast enlargement, a thickening in the breast tissue, or nipple dimpling, nipple discharge, nipple erosion or ulceration, lymph node enlargement around the breast area or under the arms. The presence of pain should not lead to a false security that it is not cancer. Approximately 10% of patients may present with breast pain and no mass. It is very important to consult a physician when experiencing breast cancer symptoms. The most effective orthodox or alternative treatment for cancer is early treatment.

Possible Risk Factors of Breast Cancer

The risk for breast cancer increases with age. Worldwide breast cancer tendency rates appear to correspond with variations in diet, especially a high fat intake diet and high alcohol intake. The BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 genes are inherited genes and account for only about 3% of breast cancers. If a woman has already had cancer in one breast, she should be aware that she has an increased risk for getting cancer in the other breast. Women with early periods (menarche), late menopause, and late first pregnancy are at increased risk. Women how have been exposed to radiation at an early age are at higher risk.
Various chemicals such as arsenic, aflatoxin, vinyle chloride, and benzene show definite evidence of causing human cancers. Other human carcinogens based on evidence from animal experiments are chloroform, dichloro-diphenyl-trichlorethane (DDT), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and formaldehyde.
