Cancer starts in the cells and then spreads to the rest parts of the body. The body forms cells when it needs them and replaces the cells as they wear out. Sometimes, this normal process can go fail and go wrong and body starts producing new cells when they are not required, and old cells do not die at the right time. As a result, the extra cells develop cancer or tumors. There are many types of cancers today, and they are classified based on the initial cell that was infected. Cancer can cause great harm to the body when damaged cells continue to divide uncontrollably. Breast cancer develops from the breast tissue.
