Developer's Description

All what you need to know about breast cancer

What is breast cancer?

Breast cancer is a cancer that forms in the tissues of the breast usually in the ducts or lobules. Breast cancer can be categorised by whether it is non-invasive or invasive. Breast cancer is also categorised by how advanced the disease is into early, locally-advanced and metastatic. Breast cancer can be classified into subtypes based on hormonal and HER2 receptor status as follows: luminal A-like (ER and PgR positive, HER2 negative tumours), luminal B-like (ER and/or PgR positive, HER2 positive or negative tumours), HER2 overexpressing (ER and PgR negative, HER2 positive tumours) and basal-like (triple-negative tumours). It is important for determining the breast cancer treatment.

The app of Breast Cancer Survival Manual provides essential updates on treatment and care, enhancing the basic information that has made this the most trusted guide for women diagnosed with breast cancer for the past two decades. This includes the most current advice on:
