Breast cancer is not a condition exclusive to women and can be a threat to men. In both men and women, breast tumors grow rapidly through the process of mitosis.
This video demonstrates the process of breast tumor growth and shows how tumors may double in size over a period of 30 days. Therefore, monthly breast exams are important for the earliest possible detection of breast tissue abnormalities. A small growth may be undetectable one month but large enough to feel through the skin by the next month.
