The warning signs for breast cancer are not the same for all people. Men also get breast cancer. When breast cancer is caught early, there is a 99 percent survival rate after 5 years.

Cancer cells can grow out of control before any symptoms of breast cancer appear. That is why breast cancer screening is important. Screening tests are used to find breast cancer before it causes signs or symptoms. Screening tests can find breast cancer early, when the chances of survival are highest.
