A seminar on the causes, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer in women was held at Iqra University North Campus.Uncontrolled cancer cells often invade healthy breast tissue and spread to other parts of the breast, says Dr. Zubaida Qazi.

Apart from mammograms, ultrasounds, and biopsy tests, a breast cancer diagnosis can also be done at home, said Dr. Zubaida Qazi.Karachi: Breast cancer develops in women when abnormal changes in the breast appear that regulate the growth of cells that develop in the breast. These views were expressed by Dr. Zubaida Qazi, Founder & President of PINK Pakistan Trust, to the Iqra University North Campus.

In the session, she delivered that uncontrolled cancer cells often invade healthy breast tissue and spread to other parts of the breast, which helps the cancer cells to spread to many parts of the breast through primary pathways.

Symptoms of breast cancer include redness of the entire breast, the formation of a lump in the breast, swelling in some parts of the breast, discharge of blood from the breast, the formation of a lump under the arm, peeling of the skin of the breast, shape, and size. Sudden changes and others are also included.

They said that ductal carcinoma starts in the milk duct and lobular carcinoma starts as lobular and then grows to prevent breast cancer diagnosis by mammogram, ultrasound, and biopsy tests.

Apart from this, the unusual change in oneself can be checked at home by self-examination in front of a mirror.
