What is breast cancer?

     Breast cancer is the rapid, uncontrollable division of tissue cells in the breast of mostly women, but ocassionally in men. It is sometimes deadly and 1 in 8 women have a chance developing it at some point in their life. Breast cancer often exists as a lump within the tissue of the breast.[1]

Good first page. Maybe even add a little color to headings, subheadings.

The pictures are a great way to show what areas are really being effected. The layout of the page is really good, along with the use of color.

I like the links back to the home page and the organization made it very easy to find everything on your pages.

The pictures allowed for a visual of where the cancer actually forms. Also, the format of the pages made it very easy to navigate the wiki.

Very good/interesting information in addition to the genetic aspect. Also, good pictures, links, and easy navigation.

Your "At Risk" page was very straightforward and easy to understand. I like how you included things that aren't actually risk factors, but are believed to be.

Wow. This was impressively organized and there was abundant information, pictures, and links to present the disorder with clarity.

You really went into depth with your information! The pictures help to understand how breast cancer develops. Overall, you have a lot of interesting information.

Very organized, excellent information. One of the best ones I have seen

I really like your idea of all the pink. The pictures help a lot and you had a lot of good information.

You guys have great pictures, I think they really add to the website. I really like your idea for a support page, it's really orginal and useful.

Your page was probably one of the best ones. It was well organized, informative, and interesting. The pictures helped a lot and the pink was a really nice touch too.

Great work on the page guys. I honestly had no idea how many risk factors there really were, it's also good to know that most who have the risk factors actually don't develop breast cancer as well

Kyle Gooding said

I didnt know that if you had children after your 35 that can increase your risk. You guys really had a lot of info to help someone find out if they had breast cancer or not

I liked seeing the disease in different stage, especially in accordance to the size. I also thought that chemotherapy was a type of radiation, but now I know that it is actually a use of drugs.

Alex Gregory said

I really liked to page that talked about risk factors. I didn't know that having children after age 35 increased your risk of having breast cancer. The types page was good too. I never realized that there is invasive breast cancer and inflammatory breast cancer. Also, I didn't know that some types of cancer can't be detected by a mammogram, like some inflammatory breast cancer.

Joseph Wells said

Genetic basis was well explained. (BRCA1-BRCA2). Nice job of finding all of the "exceptions to the rule" when it comes to risk factors and occurence. Pink ribbons and font added a feminine touch appropriate to the disease. (Unless you are a male affected with the disease, which I learned can occur!) Graphics explained breast anatomy thouroughly which helped to pinpoint where the cancer develops.

I didn't know there were so many different kinds of treatment for breast cancer besides surgery. Hormone therapy sounds the most promising, and I hope scientists continue to develop effective treatments. Since breast cancer is in part genetic, maybe eventually we will be better able to predict the occurance of breast cancer.
I also found it interesting that breast cancer was 'discovered' so recently. If we've come so far in treatment at this point, I can't wait to see what we'll know in 40 years.

The Am I at Risk Page had a lot of great information. I had no idea that the age of childbirth, or your race affected your chances of contracting the disease. The links to the support pages were a great addition. I didn't realize such support organizations existed.

Jessica Hall said

Before reading the "Types" page, I only thought that there was all breast cancer was the same. However, after reading the page I learned that there are two types, invasive and inflammatory, and the invasive category is broken up into subgroups. I also learned that the cancer usually begins to form in the duct or gland of the breast.

Emily Buis said

I did not realize that there are so many risk factors for breast cancer that we can control, such as weight, age of childbirth and alcohol consumption. I was also surpirsed that we didn't discover it until the 1980's, because it is such a damaging and common disease.

I like how you listed all the levels of breast cancer, makes it seem like that are ways that you can help prevent earlier especailly with the link to the steps to finding out if you do have.
