Early Breast Cancer

Video is Loading...

Breast cancer is a malignant tumour in the breast. Its severity depends on the cancer size and what parts of the body it has spread to.

Early breast cancer is invasive cancer in the breast, which may or may not have spread to the lymph nodes. It may have spread outside the breast and armpit regions, but cannot be detected. 

Early breast cancer is tumours with a diameter of more than 5cm. They can be palable or impalable and have no evidence of distant metstases. 

Living with breast cancer is a difficult and emotional journey. These 'Speaking from Experience' video clips offer first-hand accounts from people living with early breast cancer. They discuss the ways it has impacted their lives.
