Special Focus - BREAST CANCER
All women are at risk when it
comes to breast cancer, but no
one knows what exactly causes
breast cancer. Doctors often
cannot explain why one woman
develops breast cancer and
another does not. Research has
shown that women with certain
risk factors are more likely than
others to develop breast cancer.
Some examples of risk factors
Cancer is heredatary; If
your sister, mother, or daughter
developed breast cancer, then
you have a higher risk of developing it yourself.
Your own personal history
with cancer;
The age at which your
menstrual cycle began; how
earlier your cycle began, how
higher the risk.
The age at which you go
through menopause; women
who have their menopause after
the age of 55 are at higher risk
of developing breast cancer.
The age at which you give
birth to your first child; the risk
increases with older age, but if
you have first degree relatives
with carcinoma of the breast,
then risk goes down.
Your current age; The risk
increases with age. Age is the
biggest risk factor. (76% of women who develop breast cancer
had no other risk factors).
Your race; Caucasian women have a slightly higher risk
than Black, Hispanic, or Asian
Your health; women who
are overweight or obese after
their menopause have a higher
risk of developing breast cancer.
Drinking alcohol; studies suggest that the more alcohol a
woman drinks, the greater her
risk of breast cancer.
Many risk factors can be avoided, others, such as family history, cannot. Women can help
protect themselves by staying
away from known risk factors
whenever possible, but shouldn't let it dominate their life. It is
important to keep in mind that
most women who have known
risk factors do not get breast
cancer, and most women with
breast cancer do not have a
family history of the disease. In
fact, except for growing older,
most women with breast cancer
have no clear risk factors. If you
think you may be at risk, you
should discuss this concern
with your physician. He or she
may be able to suggest ways to
reduce your risk, and can plan a
schedule for checkups.
Currently, mammography is the
most effective technology available for breast cancer screening. But, aside from the conventional mammography, there are
several techniques that can be
used for screening. These techniques are:
Digital Mammography
Computer-Aided Detection
PET scan
Ductal Lavage
recommended more frequently
if you have a strong history of
breast cancer.
Screening for breast cancer
before there are symptoms can
be important. Screening can
help doctors find and treat cancer early. Treatment is more
likely to work well when cancer
is found early.
Your doctor may suggest the
following screening tests for
breast cancer:
Screening mammogram
A mammogram is an x-ray image
of a breast produced by mammography. There are two types
of mammograms:
1. A screening mammogram.
This is for women who have no
problems with their breasts, and
consists of two x-ray views of
each breast.
2. A diagnostic mammogram.
This is for evaluation of new
abnormalities or for patients
with a past abnormality requiring a follow-up. In this case
multiple x-rays are taken, from
different angles of certain areas
of the breast(s).
Clinical breast exam
A breast examination by a
health professional (such as
your doctor, nurse, nurse practitioner) is an important part of
routine physical checkups. As
indicated in our section about
mammograms, you should have
a clinical exam at least every
three years starting at age 20,
and every year at age 40. A
clinical breast exam may be
The best time to undergo a
breast exam is soon after your
menstrual period ends, because your breasts will not be
as tender and swollen as during your period. This makes it
easier to detect any unusual
changes. If you have stopped
menstruating, you should
schedule the yearly exam on a
day that's easy to remember,
such as a birth date.
Breast self-exam
Examining your breasts is an
important way to find breast
cancer early. Not every cancer
can be found this way, but it is
a critical step you can and
should take for yourself. No
woman wants to do a breast
self-exam (BSE), and for many
it is a frustrating experience.
However, the more you examine your breasts, the more you
will learn about them. This will
help to familiarize yourself
with how your breasts normally
look and feel. The best time to
do a BSE is several days after
the end of your period. If you
are no longer having periods,
choose a day that's easy to
remember, such as a birthday.
Most women have some
lumps or lumpy areas in their
breasts. Eight out of ten breast
lumps that are removed are
benign, non-cancerous. It is
also important to keep in mind
that changes can occur due to
aging, your menstrual cycle,
pregnancy, menopause, or
birth control pills.
