Breast Cancer:

Breast cancer is cancer arising in breast tissue. Cancer is simply a group of abnormal cells that have abnormal growth patterns.

  • Although breast cancer is primarily a disease of women, about 1% of breast cancers occur in men.

  • Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women and is the second leading cause of death by cancer in women, following only lung cancer.

  • In 2005, the American Cancer Society estimated that 212,930 new cases of breast cancer would be diagnosed in the United States.

  • The incidence of breast cancer has been gradually increasing, averaging a 0.5% increase per year from 1987-2001. Death rates, on the other hand, have been gradually declining.

Chemotherapy:

Chemotherapy is the general term for any treatment involving the use of chemical agents to stop cancer cells from growing. Chemotherapy can eliminate cancer cells at sites great distances from the original cancer. As a result, chemotherapy is considered a systemic treatment.

Alopecia and other Hair Loss:

An inappropriate inflammatory reaction is behind Alopecia Areata. A person's own immune system attacks the roots of hair follicles. Symptoms include patchy shedding of hair, which sometimes develops quite suddenly. About 70% of patients recover their hair within two years, whether or not they receive treatment.
