Description: Breast Cancer is among the most common types of cancer in the world. 1 out of every 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. There are two types of breast cancer. Ductal carcinoma starts in the tubes that move the breast milk. This is the most common type of breast cancer. The other type is Lobular carcinoma which starts in the lobules within the breast that produce milk. Breast cancer can start in other areas of the breast, however, it is very rare.[1]                                                  [2]

As we discussed, move the spacing and add links to other web pages.

Your Stages of Breast Cancer page is very descriptive. I like how you described each stage and then had a picture that shows each stage.

I really liked the page about the risk factors for breast cancer. Even though the layout was a little messed up, i learned quite a bit about my personal chances of getting breast cancer. It was very beneficial that you included that link because i believe most people think that you just get breast cancer like a game of chance, but apprently that is not true.

I thought the page on risk factors was very interesting. I had no idea that not having children or obesity could increase your chances of developing breast cancer.

The page seems very knowledgeable over all. I didnt kno that cancer and genetic inheritance could b related. It is visually appealing but you know u dont have 2 put "3" on ur actual web page, its just how u name the links

question: does not having a baby increase your risk of getting breast cancer? or decrease it?

The setup, info, and picture on the Stages page are very beneficial. It was easy to follow too. I like how you included factors that you can control. Hopefully it will get people motivated to decrease their chance of acquiring breast cancer.

Good job of explaining the stages of breast cancer. However, some history or awareness would be nice.

It really frightening to see what increase your risk of breast cancer and that your risk also depend on your race. I didn' know that breat feeding increase your risk. I like that you added a lot of statistics and numbers so you can compare it to others genetic diseases.

It's interesting to the risk factors included in breast cancer, such as a women beginning their period before age 12 and previous radiation exposure. I also didnt know that breast cancer has 4 stages.

i think the pictures on the stages of breast cancer do a very good job of showing the growth of breast cancer. also i think that it is very amazing the 1 in every 8 women get doagnosed with breast cancer.

The fact that when women who begin their periods before age 12 have a much higher risk of developing breast cancer is a very interesting to me. The other risk factors such as alcohol, obesity, not bearing children, and being and Ashkenzi Jew will greatly increase your chances of having breast cancer. It would have been beneficial to know if you would have covered if men could get breast cancer.

it's funny how such a serious disorder can be noticed by something as simple as a monthly self exam. transitioning from stage to stage, how long does each take on average? i like the links on hormone and chemotherapy, but i couldn't find out if hormone therapy stops the stages from continuing or only slows them down? which is the best option, hormone therapy, chemotherapy, or surgery?
