Question: What are the different parts of the breast, and where in the breast does cancer usually occur?
Answer: The breast is really made as a milk factory; its job is to make milk and feed the young. And it has lobules that make the milk and ducts that carry the milk to the nipple. If you think about a branch of a tree, the lobules are like the leaves and the duct is like the branches. They all, 6-8 ducts, coalesce in the nipple and come out in 6-8 openings to release the milk.Breast cancer...Full Story
