Breast Pathology Treatment
To enjoy healthy and beautiful breasts women should visit a breast oncologist on a regular basis. One of the worst enemies for women is breast cancer (BC).
- Chances of developing breast cancer increase with age. In women over 35, the risk increases with each passing year.
- Heredity: breast cancer cases in your family history.
- Hormonal imbalance caused by: irregular sex life, late childbirth (after 30 years old), childlessness, no breastfeeding, abortions.
- Thyroid dysfunction increases the chances of developing breast pathology, so you need to undergo thyroid examination, including thyroid hormone profile and ultrasound examination, once a year.
- Women who experienced early periods (before the age of nine) and those whose menopause occurred after 55 years need particular attention.
- Chronic gynecological diseases and menstrual cycle disorders also increase the risk of breast cancer.
- Body habitus: women with height over 165 cm and weight over 70 kg should visit a breast oncologist more frequently, since excess weight is indicative of metabolic disorders, which lead to various abnormalities, including cancer.
- You are at risk if your work involves contact with carcinogens, or if you have had an injury of the breast.
- To reduce the risk (or completely avoid it) you should follow a few simple rules:
- Exercise or engage in active sports
- Eat properly. Your diet should be balanced with plenty of fruit and vegetables and minimal carbohydrates. You should avoid eating foods high in sugar, such as confectionery, etc.
- Try to evoke more positive emotions and keep positive attitudes. Prolonged chronic stress or depression increases the risk of breast pathology.
- Do not sunbathe topless!
- Never self-prescribe or discontinue hormonal contraceptives without medical supervision, as this may lead to disturbance of hormonal balance.
- Women aged under 35 should visit a breast oncologist once a year and twice a year afterwards. Also, women aged under 40 should undergo breast ultrasound examination once a year and those over 40 should undergo mammography.
- You should use a self-check technique on a regular basis. However, remember that self-check doesn’t replace routine medical examination by a breast oncologist.
