(ORDO NEWS) — The World Health Organization has recognized breast cancer as the most common in the world. Timely diagnostics makes it possible to save women not only their lives, but also their breasts. It is very important to diagnose cancer early.
Therefore, it is very important to visit a mammologist doctor, as well as take your health seriously. Breast surgeon Yaroslav Denisenko told how to detect danger in time.
This is reported by TSN.
The surgeon said that the emergence of oncology is a consequence of the uncontrolled division of breast tissue cells. As a result of this process, a mutation occurs in the BRCA1, BRCA2 genes. It is these genes that are inherited. Therefore, women on the maternal side often suffer from oncology.
Yaroslav Denisenko strongly recommends that you regularly undergo an ultrasound scan and visit a mammologist. He also named the risk factors that can become triggers of oncology:
- late pregnancy (in women over 40);
- early menstruation (up to 12 years old);
- bad habits;
- hormone therapy;
- late menopause;
For women under 40, the doctor recommends an ultrasound scan of the breast, for those who are 40+, mammography is more suitable.
Self-examination of the breast a week after the end of menstruation is the most effective way to prevent breast cancer. Feeling the mammary glands to identify seals or inflamed lymph nodes requires an urgent visit to the doctor. Also, a doctor’s consultation is necessary if the nipple is “drawn in”.
