Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death for American women. Only lung cancer claims more women’s lives, according to the American Cancer Society. When caught early, breast cancer can often be treated successfully. A delayed diagnosis of breast cancer can be life-threatening. The cancer can spread to surrounding tissues. Eventually, it may metastasize to other areas of the body.
