Does a breast mass mean it is most likely cancer?
No. It means a mass in the breast. It could be cancer, it could be a cyst, it could be any number of things. You'd need to go to a physician to get a definitive answer as to what it is.
I'm not sure what you mean by 'is it religious' but if you mean is it only people of certain religions get breast cancer then the answer is NO. Anyone can get breast cancer. Read More

I don't think there is any real way to know if you are going to get cancer, although with some cancers (breast cancer I believe), they can test you to see if you have a gene that makes you more likely to get cancer.

Been called back after treatment for abnormal cell results on a cervical smear Doctor says he is unsure of where cells have come from patient has had breast cancer treatment what does this mean?
Abnormal cells from other organs don't usually present themselves in a PAP test. But they can. If patient has abnormal cells on PAP test and has history of breast cancer, a pathologist can determine if cells are cervical cells or breast cells. If breast cancer has migrated to cervix, this means the staging of breast cancer would increase. Most likely this isn't the case, and the abnormal cells are cervical related. Read More
Symptoms of breast cancer can vary widely from person to person (note I didn't say woman to woman because men can actually develop breast cancer as well, although it is much more rare). Some of the more prevalent symptoms of breast cancer include: 1) a detectable lump, mass, or nodule in the breast or underarm areas beneath the skin (this doesn't necessarily mean it's cancer, but these need to be checked out by a physician)… Read More
Breast Cancer Spreading No, mestastasize means that the breast cancer itself has spread to other organs, causing them to be harmed also. When breast, or any other cancer, has mestastasized, the cancer cells in the other organs are the same as the ones in the original organ. Thus, if the cancer originates in the breast and spreads to the liver and bones, you don't have breast, liver and bone cancer, you have mestastasized breast cancer. Read More
