1. 1 in 13 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime

According to the Singapore Cancer Society, 1 in 13 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast cancer usually originates from the cells lining the milk ducts and glands. When breast cancer is detected at this non-invasive stage, treatment is easier, and patients have a higher chance of recovery. However, when cancer cells invade the surrounding tissue, it can enter the circulatory and lymphatic system, and hence, to other organs in the body. When these cancer cells reach a new site, they may form a metastatic tumour. The organs most affected by this are the lungs, bones, and liver.
