Breast cancer begins in the cells of the breast. Breast cancer may begin as a small tumor, but may eventually grow and spread to nearby tissue.
HER2-positive breast cancer is an aggressive form of cancer in which the cells produce too many HER2 proteins.
Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is a rare but highly aggressive disease, in which cancer cells clog the lymph vessels in the skin, causing a buildup of lymph fluid.
Men can also develop breast cancer, since all men have a small amount of breast tissue.
Metaplastic breast cancer is a rare and aggressive malignancy that accounts for about 0.2 to less than 5% of all breast cancers.
Metastatic breast cancer is the most advanced stage (stage IV) of breast cancer.
Triple negative breast cancer occurs when no estrogen, progesterone, or HER2 receptors are present in the tumor tissue.
