As Singapore’s #1 Cancer amongst women, many ladies who find a tumour in their breast often ask if all breast lumps are cancerous.
Fortunately for most ladies, 80-85% of breast tumours are benign (not cancerous). However, while it may be safe to say there is a large probability that the tumour is not cancerous, ladies who find a lump in their breast should have it checked by a specialist.
This is especially important as early detection is key when it comes to breast cancer and should not be hesitated on. Ladies above the age of 40 are recommended to do a breast screening twice a year. Find out more about breast screening here.
