Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast.

The most common type of breast cancer is ductal carcinoma, which begins in the cells of the ducts. Cancer that begins in the lobes or lobules is called lobular carcinoma and is more often found in both breasts than are other types of breast cancer. Inflammatory breast cancer is an uncommon type of breast cancer in which the breast is warm, red, and swollen.

Red clover (Trifolium pratense) is a plant belonging to the Fabaceae, that is, pea family. Some variaties of this plant are used as fodder. The plant was named Trifolium pratense by Carolus Linnaeus in 1753. Trifolium means 'three leaved' while pratense is Latin for "found in meadows". Isoflavones from red clover have been used to treat the symptoms of menopause.
