El cáncer de mama es el crecimiento desenfrenado de células malignas en el tejido mamario.

Existen dos tipos principales de cáncer de mama, el carcinoma ductal—la más frecuente—que comienza en los conductos que llevan leche desde la mama hasta el pezón y el carcinoma lobulillar que comienza en partes de las mamas, llamadas lobulillos, que producen la leche materna.

Breast cancer is a type of cancer originating from breast tissue, most commonly from the inner lining of milk ducts or the lobules that supply the ducts with milk. Cancers originating from ducts are known as ductal carcinomas, while those originating from lobules are known as lobular carcinomas.

Breast cancer occurs in humans and other mammals. While the overwhelming majority of human cases occur in women, male breast cancer can also occur.
