Location Of Breast Cancer

Breast Surgery Specialist Jane Mendez explains that cancer occurs in the breast tissue that spans from the sternum, the inframammary fold to the clavicle and the dorsal muscle. "Breast cancer may occur in any of these landmarks," says Mendez. Also, the specialist recommends that women have to be aware of what is normal for their breast tissue. "It's critical for a woman to perform breast examination for an early detection," according to the expert. Concerning the size of the mass, Dr. Mendez says that "the smaller the breast, the less breast tissue you have to develop a mass."
