Breast cancer in women - NHS
No single food or diet can prevent or cause breast cancer, but a person's dietary choices can make a difference to their risk of developing breast cancer or their overall well-being while living with the condition. Breast cancer is a complex disease with many contributing factors. Some of these factors, including age, family history, genetics, and gender, are not within a person's control. However, a person can control other factors, such as smoking, physical activity levels, body weight , and diet. Breast cancer can start in different places, grow in different ways, and require different kinds of treatment.

Stage 3 breast cancer refers to cancer in the breast that has spread to several nearby lymph nodes. Doctors also describe breast cancer as stage 3 if a tumor is larger than 5 centimeters and cancer has spread to any lymph nodes, but not to distant organs. At stage 3, breast cancer may also spread to the chest wall or the skin of the breast. Receiving a stage 3 cancer diagnosis can be distressing, but life expectancy and treatments are improving all the time.
Many women are relieved or excited to be finished with breast cancer treatment. But it can also be a time of worry, being concerned about the cancer coming back, or feeling lost without seeing their cancer care team as often. For some women with advanced breast cancer, the cancer may never go away completely. These women may continue to get treatments such as chemotherapy, hormone therapy, or other treatments to help keep the breast cancer under control and to help relieve symptoms from it. Even if you have completed breast cancer treatment, your doctors will want to watch you closely.
