It has been reported that some patients have been misdiagnosed with Duct Ectasia, when in fact the correct diagnosis in their specific case was Breast Cancer (female).
Early intervention and treatment are essential for breast cancer recovery. Treatment options include surgery to remove the cancer from the breast, chemotherapy as well as radiation therapy, as well as hormone therapy. Diagnosing breast cancer in females is done via a breast examination as well as a mammogram. A biopsy may be required to confirm diagnosis.
