Breast cancer treatment can be effective when the disease is identified early. It consists of surgical removal, radiation therapy, and medication (hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, or targeted biological treatment) are used in treating microscopic cancer to prevent it from spreading from the breast tumour through the blood.

Such treatment goes a long way to prevent cancer growth and its spread, thereby saves lives.

Unlike some cancers with infection-related causes, such as human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and cervical cancer, there are no known viral or bacterial infections linked to the development of breast cancer.
