Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease and the causes are complex, susceptibility is influenced by environmental and genetic factors. Risk factors for female breast cancer include early menopause, late menarche, late delivery, obesity, a high-fat diet, oral contraceptives and other exogenous estrogens, age, environmental toxins, and alcohol and cigarette consumption.
An important part of breast health is knowing how they normally look and feel. Although regular breast cancer screening is important, mammograms do not diagnose all breast cancers.

Most women will have some type of surgery to remove the tumor. Depending on the type of breast cancer and how advanced it is, you may also need other types of treatment, either before or after surgery, or sometimes both.
Targeted Cancer Treatment
Minimally invasive ablation techniques have the goal of achieving similar results to breast-conserving therapy, but with fewer side effects, shorter hospital stays, and better cosmetic results.
Techniques used include cryoablation, microwave ablation, radiofrequency ablation (RFA), and irreversible electroporation.
Thermal ablation is primarily used for the treatment of small, unresectable tumors, for patients who have been resistant to chemo/radiotherapy treatment or who are NOT surgical candidates, such as:
