It is pertinent that you take regular checks on your breasts to ensure early detection of lumps or pains because the breast tissue is one of the most heavily hormone-influenced tissues in the body. Because of the fluctuations in hormone levels that occur during a reproductive cycle, it is common for women to experience breast pain or tenderness. Staying vigilant regarding breast health and any suspicious changes cannot be over-stressed.
- Early Detection: this can mean the difference between survival and death. The tricky part about breast cancer is that it can present in a variety of forms, ranging from a painless increase in breast size to lumps and ulcers. While mammographic screenings using X-rays have proven to be a breakthrough diagnostic tool for breast cancer patients in recent years, the importance of self-examination for early detection cannot be denied. Nearly 20% of all cases of breast cancer are detected on self-exams In addition, several cases of breast cancer come to attention during routine activities like taking a bath, applying deodorant, or idle scratching. By doing regular self-check-ups, you remain one step ahead of any worrying developments.
- Imaging Tests Find Breast Cancer: Different tests can be used to look for and diagnose breast cancer. If your doctor finds an area of concern on a screening test (a mammogram), or if you have symptoms that could mean breast cancer, you will need more tests to know for sure if it’s cancer.
- Biopsy: A biopsy is done when mammograms, other imaging tests, or a physical exam shows a breast change that may be cancer. A biopsy is the only way to know for sure if it’s cancer.
