According to the International Association for the Study of Pain, pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience arising from actual or potential tissue damage. Clinically, pain is whatever the person says he or she is experiencing whenever he or she says it occurs. Pain is commonly categorized along a continuum of duration. Acute pain usually lasts hours, days, or weeks and is associated with tissue damage, inflammation, a surgical procedure, or a brief disease process. Acute pain serves as a warning that something is wrong. Chronic pain, in contrast, worsens and intensifies over time and persists for months, years, or a lifetime. It accompanies disease processes such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and diabetes. Chronic pain can also accompany an injury that has not resolved over time, such as reflex sympathetic dystrophy, low back pain, or phantom limb pain.

Breast cancer PDF Print E-mail
 Cancer is the name for diseases in which the body's cells become abnormal and divide without control. Cancer cells may invade nearby tissues. And they may spread through the bloodstream and lymphatic system to other parts of the body.

Breast cancer is an uncontrolled growth of breast cells. To better understand breast cancer, it helps to understand how any cancer can develop.

Cancer occurs as a result of mutations, or abnormal changes, in the genes responsible for regulating the growth of cells and keeping them healthy. The genes are in each cell’s nucleus, which acts as the “control room” of each cell. Normally, the cells in our bodies replace themselves through an orderly process of cell growth: healthy new cells take over as old ones die out. But over time, mutations can “turn on” certain genes and “turn off” others in a cell. That changed cell gains the ability to keep dividing without control or order, producing more cells just like it and forming a tumor.
