Factors associated with screening mammography and breast self-examination intentions. (1/211)

The factors associated with the use of two methods for the early detection of breast cancer were assessed using a theoretical framework derived from the theory of reasoned action and the Health Belief Model. Telephone interviews were conducted with 170 women aged between 50 and 70 years, randomly selected from the telephone directory of a provincial city in Victoria, Australia. The model explained 47% of the variance in intentions to have a mammogram and 22% of the variance in intentions to practise breast self-examination (BSE). The data supported the prediction that different variables would be associated with each method of early detection of breast cancer. Intentions to have a mammogram were associated with perceived susceptibility to breast cancer, knowing a woman who has had a mammogram, previous mammography history and Pap test history. Intentions to do BSE were associated with self efficacy, knowledge of breast cancer issues, concern about getting breast cancer and employment status. Both screening methods were associated with prior behaviour and concern about getting breast cancer.  (+info)

Detection of metachronous breast carcinoma: the role of follow-up? (2/211)

Second primary (metachronous) breast carcinoma occurs at a rate of approximately 1% per year. Early detection of metachronous carcinomas will optimise the chances of curative treatment. The aim of this study was to identify the method of detection of metachronous carcinomas, so that efforts to detect these tumours can be made more focused. Thirteen patients presented twice to a surgical department in a 7-year period with second primary breast carcinomas. The means of detection of the second primary carcinoma was identified in each case. Eleven of the patients presented with new symptoms which they had noticed themselves. The remaining two carcinomas were detected mammographically, and their presence was confirmed on clinical examination. In no case was the second primary carcinoma detected by clinical examination alone. Metachronous carcinoma is unlikely to be detected by routine clinical examination, but rapid assessment of new symptoms should be facilitated. Follow-up mammography at regular intervals should also improve early detection of metachronous breast carcinoma.  (+info)

Receptivity of a worksite breast cancer screening education program. (3/211)

A breast cancer screening education program was offered to 97 major worksites in Forsyth County, North Carolina. Worksites could design a program by choosing components that consisted of (1) brochures, (2) breast cancer education classes taught by program staff or (3) sending company nurses to be trained by program staff to then teach employees at the worksite. A total of 63 out of the original 97 companies (65%) accepted and offered a program to their employees. Worksites that chose to sponsor a program were more likely to have already sponsored breast cancer education programs at their worksites (P = 0.027) or to have a medical department (P = 0.006). The type of component selected was significantly associated with a history of sponsoring other health education programs (P < 0.001). Fourteen worksites chose the more intensive component, the training of a company nurse. More than half of the worksites that had never sponsored and had no plans to sponsor worksite breast education programs were receptive to our program (43 of 73, 59%). The majority of these sites (67%) chose the brochure. These results indicate that worksites are receptive to offering breast cancer educational programs if varying types of components can be selected.  (+info)

GPs' management of women seeking help for familial breast cancer. (4/211)

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to ascertain how often patients seek help for familial breast cancer in primary care, and to identify GPs management of these patients, in order to see whether guidelines are followed. METHODS: This was a descriptive study. GPs (n = 202) attending a postgraduate education programme were asked to fill in a questionnaire which included questions about the number of patients seeking help for familial breast cancer within the last 3 months and about their management strategies. RESULTS: About 80% of the GPs reported that they referred women with concerns about familial breast cancer for further diagnostics (mammography or ultrasound). For half these referrals a plan of regular appointments was set up, and one-eighth of the referrals included breast examination by a physician. Breast self-examination was advised in 50% of the cases. Estimates given to women regarding their breast cancer risk varied considerably. There was a strong relationship between risk estimates and management strategies. CONCLUSIONS: Current guidelines regarding surveillance of women with breast cancer in the family were only partly followed. These guidelines do not give sufficient information to define whether there is an increased risk for breast cancer. These guidelines need to be refined.  (+info)

Management of breast cancer after Hodgkin's disease. (5/211)

PURPOSE: To evaluate the incidence, detection, pathology, management, and prognosis of breast cancer occurring after Hodgkin's disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Seventy-one cases of breast cancer in 65 survivors of Hodgkin's disease were analyzed. RESULTS: The median age at diagnosis was 24.6 years for Hodgkin's disease and 42.6 years for breast cancer. The relative risk for invasive breast cancer after Hodgkin's disease was 4.7 (95% confidence interval, 3.4 to 6. 0) compared with an age-matched cohort. Cancers were detected by self-examination (63%), mammography (30%), and physician exam (7%). The histologic distribution paralleled that reported in the general population (85% ductal histology) as did other features (27% positive axillary lymph nodes, 63% positive estrogen receptors, and 25% family history). Although 87% of tumors were less than 4 cm, 95% were managed with mastectomy because of prior radiation. Two women underwent lumpectomy with breast irradiation. One of these patients developed tissue necrosis in the region of overlap with the prior mantle field. The incidence of bilateral breast cancer was 10%. Adjuvant systemic therapy was well tolerated; doxorubicin was used infrequently. Ten-year disease-specific survival was as follows: in-situ disease, 100%; stage I, 88%; stage II, 55%; stage III, 60%; and stage IV, zero. CONCLUSION: The risk of breast cancer is increased after Hodgkin's disease. Screening has been successful in detecting early-stage cancers. Pathologic features and prognosis are similar to that reported in the general population. Repeat irradiation of the breast can lead to tissue necrosis, and thus, mastectomy remains the standard of care in most cases.  (+info)

Breast self examination for early detection of breast cancer. (6/211)

Breast cancer is the commonest form of cancer in women in Western countries and second most common in women of developing countries like India. In the absence of an exact aetiological agent for breast cancer, the most appropriate way of controlling it is by early detection and treatment. Of the various methods of screening for breast cancer, mammography is the method of choice but its use is limited due to high cost and unavailability. Considering this, breast self examination (BSE) is an ideal method which can be done by every woman at her leisure time with little training. Medical and paramedical professionals can act as trend setters in promoting BSE for control of breast cancer in the community.  (+info)

Practice of breast self-examination amongst women attending a Malaysian Well Person's Clinic. (7/211)

The practice of breast self-examination (BSE) amongst 1,303 women registered with the Well Person's Clinic, Outpatient Department, Hospital Ipoh between April 1995 and March 1997 were assessed through a questionnaire. Majority (98.2%) were never taught and did not practise BSE, 17(1.3%) practised BSE while 6 (0.5%) were taught BSE but failed to put it into practice. Only 5.8% of 52 women with past/family history of breast cancer/lump and 2.9% of 207 women with past/family history of other cancers were practising BSE regularly. Three out of 64 women with breast lumps found on clinical breast examination discovered the lumps themselves. Five of the 64 women were subsequently confirmed to have breast carcinoma.  (+info)

Effects of persuasive message order on coping with breast cancer information. (8/211)

The current study explored the impact of varying the order of message components on coping with breast cancer information. In a 2 x 2 x 2 factorial design, threat information, coping information and order of information were manipulated. College students read persuasive essays that varied in emphasis on threat of developing breast cancer and effectiveness of breast self-examination (BSE) in averting the threat of cancer. Participants who read the high-threat message reported higher intentions to perform BSE, more rational problem solving and more hopelessness than did those who read a low-threat message. The coping information messages produced a similar pattern of results. In addition, those who read the high-coping message reported less fatalism than did participants who read the low-coping message. When threat information was presented first, the high-threat message led to less hopelessness and reliance on religious faith than when the coping information was presented first. These results demonstrate the threatening health information energizes one to act in both adaptive and maladaptive ways, and that coping information decreases the tendency to respond maladaptively to the health threat. They also suggest that the order of presentation of the information may affect the extent to which people respond adaptively.  (+info)

According to a meta-analysis in the Cochrane Collaboration, two large trials in Russia and Shanghai found no beneficial effects of screening by breast self-examination but do suggest increased harm in terms of increased numbers of benign lesions identified and an increased number of biopsies performed. They concluded, At present, screening by breast self-examination or physical examination cannot be recommended.[1]. Although breast self-examination increases the number of biopsies performed on women, and thus revenue for the breast cancer industry[citation needed], it does not reduce mortality from breast cancer. In a large clinical trial involving more than 260,000 female Chinese factory workers, half were carefully taught by nurses at their factories to perform monthly breast self-exam, and the other half were not. The women taught self-exam detected more benign (normal or harmless lumps) or early-stage breast disease, but equal numbers of women died from breast cancer in each ...
Media coverage surrounding the article on breast self-examination by the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care1 drew strong reactions from women who felt disempowered by its recommendations or who were incredulous at the conclusion that not only is breast self-examination of no use but it may result in psychological harm and unnecessary costs. Their distress should give us pause for reflection.. Breast self-examination is not a preventive measure: it cannot prevent cancer. Rather, it is a diagnostic technique and should be evaluated as such.2 The accepted method to evaluate diagnostic measures is to assess sensitivity and specificity relative to some gold standard. If the performance of the evaluated technique is adequate, the decision to use one approach over another can then be based on factors such as acceptability to the patient and cost-benefit ratio. Rather than focusing on whether breast self-examination can reduce mortality, the authors should have focused on whether it is a ...
The benefits of breast self-examination BSE for reducing mortality from breast cancer are uncertain. We conducted an analysis of the relationship between self-reported practicing of BSE and mortality from breast cancer over 13 years in a cohort of over 548,000 women. The report of practicing BSE was unrelated to breast cancer mortality. There...

December 4, 2007. Turning the Tide Against Breast Cancer. By Senator Lena C. Taylor. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Its a solemn occasion; a time to reflect on the impact of a devastating sickness. Breast cancer is, by far, the deadliest disease amongst women in our society. Almost 180,000 Americans will be diagnosed this year, alone, and, of these, over 40,000 will die of breast cancer.. One in seven women will develop breast cancer during their lives, meaning that almost all of us know somebody whose life has been irrevocably changed by the disease. That experience is charged with emotion. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a challenge to take those emotions and use them to be proactive and fight back. That means facing up to the realities of breast cancer and understanding what you can do to keep it from impacting your life.. The unfortunate reality is that all women are at risk. The number one cause of breast cancer is aging, and thats something none of us can do anything about. ...
Everywhere you turn in October companies are Pinkwashing us by claiming to be in support of breast cancer research while using ingredients that are mammary carcinogens, or carcinogenic contaminants that behave as endocrine disrupting compounds in our bodies, causing hormonal imbalance. As the Gerson Institute calls it, carcinogens for the cure. True that. Pinkwashing - verb 1. the sale of items containing known carcinogens, while marketing these products in support of breast cancer awareness 2. also, capitalizing on the promotion of breast cancer prevention when only concerned about bottom line profit margin.. Its said that Evelyn Lauders dream was to end breast cancer. Why doesnt the company jump off the breast cancer awareness bandwagon and honor her memory by reformulating their products WITHOUT harmful cancer causing ingredients?! LOreal, Proctor & Gamble and many others do it too. How do they sleep at night?!. According to the Breast Cancer Fund, which is doing amazing work in the ...

Have you ever felt stressed about doing a Breast Self-Examination (BSE), that you werent doing it right or that you really didn t know what was going on with all that tissue you were moving around? Recent studies including one trial in China with 250,000 women have prompted the American Cancer Society to change its guidelines to make BSE optional rather than mandatory. The studies indicated that BSEs didn t actually reduce the number of breast cancer deaths AND that women performing regular BSE may be more likely to have biopsies, unnecessary surgery and anxiety. So what should you be doing? Here s a quote from cancer.org s website: There are two ways to think about breast self-examination, said Amy Langer, executive director of the National Alliance of Breast Cancer Organizations (NABCO). One is as a particular technique that has to be learned, has to be demonstrated, has to be practiced and done consistently and correctly. Most women don t do BSE in that structured, formal way, Langer ...

The rationale for breast examination during pregnancy is to determine whether any problems with breastfeeding can be anticipated and to use the opportunity for the healthcare provider and pregnant woman to discuss breastfeeding. Examination by a healthcare provider is recommended in some countries. Breast examination can also be performed by the pregnant woman herself. Furthermore, breast examination during pregnancy has been recommended as a screening method for breast cancer, although no evidence has been found to support breast examination by a doctor, nurse or the woman as a primary screening technique for breast cancer. A womans breasts are often tender and swollen during pregnancy. This makes examination difficult and potentially compounds a womans feelings of discomfort or vulnerability. Some women may find a clinical breast examination during pregnancy intrusive, and identification of flat or inverted nipples may actually act as a deterrent to breastfeeding. No randomised controlled ...

Even with amazing medical progress, promising research and new treatment advances, thousands of American women and men are diagnosed with breast cancer annually. Early detection and treatment are keys to treating and containing this disease. When detected early before it can spread to other parts of the body, breast cancer can be treated successfully through radiation, drug therapy and surgery, and many cancer survivors live long, healthy lives.. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Knowing your family history, getting regular exams and avoiding known cancer-causing foods and activities are critical, proactive steps. By eating well, exercising regularly, not smoking tobacco products, and drinking in moderation women reduce their chances of contracting breast cancer.. But the numbers remain staggering: About one in eight American women, close to 12 percent, will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Approximately 230,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer ...
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month to increase the wakefulness on this disease globally. The word Cancer does make everyone flinch, but it is not only the disease that scares people, it is the fear of chemo, radiation, expensive bills, and impending doom that people dread more. As per ICMR data, breast cancer is the commonest cancer among Indian women in urban areas where it constitutes more than 30% of all cancers in females. Overall, in urban India 1 out of 22 women are at risk of developing breast cancer in their lifetime.. Most people are unaware of effective healthcare measures for breast cancer prevention and early detection and ultimately most of them are left with only option of a long, painful and expensive journey of the treatment, once they have already developed the cancer. Predictive genetic testing using SNP genotyping was conducted on 2000 Indian females by Indus Health Plus. Out of these 2000 females, 63% are from metros & tier-I cities and rest are from tier-II & III ...

Breast cancer screening is defined as the evaluation of symptom free, otherwise healthy looking females of child bearing age or postmenopausal women for early detection of breast cancer. Screening mammography is the most common and widely practiced breast cancer screening modality across the world. The other modes of breast cancer screening being practiced across the world are: breast self-examination (BSE), clinical breast examination (CBE), digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), ultrasonography (USG), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and identification of certain genetic oncogenes. The major merits of breast cancer screening programs are: early diagnosis, sorting out and prevention of risk factors, and timely treatment to lessen the morbidity (5 years localized stage survival rate is 99%, regional disease 84% while metastatic breast cancer 5 year survival rate is 23%); it also reduces overall 20% mortality rate. The major demerits of breast cancer screening are: overdiagnosis (19% from the ...
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Proficient clinical/manual breast examination (CBE) is an effective and accepted breast cancer screening tool that remains inaccessible to a large population of women with physical disabilities. There are no standards for training clinicians to conduct CBE with this population of women and few resources for screening them. This research project is designed to investigate and validate the elements required for effective manual breast examination with women who have functional limitations and to incorporate those procedures into the MammaCare Clinical Learning System. MammaCare is a validated, skill-based training program and is a recognized standard for teaching clinicians how to conduct proficient CBE. In this Phase I research project, women representing a range of physical disabilities will be given CBEs by nurses or physicians who are MammaCare Specialist trainees using an experimental video protocol developed by participants, project staff, and ...

I am really getting offended by this Breast cancer awareness every October and every year it gets more and more intrusive with more and more companies jumping on the bandwagon mostly just for the PR effect so people think they care. Im sick of seeing pink everywhere. It disgusts me that people only care about breast cancer. I lost 2 family members to prostate cancer yet you never hear a peep about promoting awareness for prostate cancer and I dont even know if there is a ribbon since if there

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.. The movement to remind women to get mammograms is in full swing. Pink… the color for breast cancer awareness… is everywhere. It is no longer taboo to talk about breasts! Silicone bracelets proclaiming Save the Tatas and I Love Boobies have been spotted on the wrists of young and old alike.. Societys newfound comfort with the word breast …and its slang…is evidence of how far breast cancer awareness has come. And it offers hope that the infertility awareness campaign will someday join breast cancer in terms of public awareness, funding, and support. If we can openly talk openly about breasts, can ovaries be far behind?. When youre trying to conceive and you cant, and then you go to a fertility specialist for help, and it still doesnt happen, some women might think their life is over. That nothing could be worse. That no one has it harder than they do. Some may even feel that theres no reason to go on if they cant have a baby.. That ...
Okay I admit it, that yay was sarcastic. I know, I know - every year I share that I have mixed feelings about Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM). I probably sound like a broken record but its hard not to. This month always stirs up those emotions for me. I dont hate it, Im not against it and its not that I dont think its a good thing. I do. Its just that ever since I had cancer BCAM feels weird to me. Its hard to describe why. Objectively I think its a good idea, but from a personal standpoint its as if I dont know what to think about it anymore. I have a certain cynicism about it now that never existed pre-cancer.. My husband summed up some of my feelings quite well the other day. I said to him in an overly cheery, slightly sarcastic tone, Do you know what Friday is?. Um, the first of October?. Yep! But what does that signify?. Its Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Then he paused and said jokingly, Do I have to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Because I really ...

Many women have a pattern of lumpiness in their breasts which is normal. However, if you feel or see any change in your breasts or underarms, arrange for a Clinical Breast Examination at your local CANSA Care Centre or with your health practitioner.. Clinical Breast Examinations. A Clinical Breast Examination (CBE) is a visual and manual examination of the entire breast, from the collarbone to the bra line, and from the armpit to the breast bone. It is advisable to have a CBE as part of your annual medical check up.. Contact your local CANSA Care Centre or health practitioner to arrange for a Clinical Breast Examination.. You can also ask your Care Centre about Mobile Health Clinic visits scheduled in your community, especially if you live in a remote area.. Mammograms. Mammograms (a special x-ray to detect lumps in the breast), do not prevent breast cancer, but they can save lives by finding breast cancer as early as possible. Finding breast cancers early with mammography has also meant that ...
12. Do my life and conversation (that is my behavior) adorn the gospel of Jesus Christ?. Just to read that list makes me tired. My first thought is that if I conducted that exercise every day I would go to bed every night discouraged and defeated, because, of course, and in the nature of the case, the answer to most of those questions would always be either No! or Not nearly enough. I can see asking myself one of these questions at the end of each day, perhaps covering them all every 12th day. But I admit that putting those questions to oneself every night, at the end of every day, would be wearying and discouraging work. One must live the Christian life as well as examine how one is living it! And, so far as I can see, that sort of constant, elaborate, time-consuming, daily, and inevitably discouraging self-examination is nowhere taught to be what God requires of his children. There can be, at least in this case, too much of a good thing!. But a third reason why self-examination has fallen ...

For breast cancer control, our analyses show that treating early stage breast cancer is more cost effective than treating late stage disease. Results indicate that priorities in national breast cancer control should be the implementation of an extensive programme including active mammography screening and treatment of all stages. Although such a programme reflects the economic attractiveness of diagnosing breast cancer at an earlier stage, many developing countries may not be able to meet its total costs (including the required infrastructure, logistics, and expertise). Given the limited available resources, priorities are probably best directed at treatment of early stage disease and at developing a less expensive means of early diagnosis. We did not evaluate clinical breast examination or breast self examination because currently there is no consensus on their value, either alone or in addition to mammography. However, together with other ways of raising awareness, they could be cost effective ...

Background: In India, the number of new breast cancer cases is about 115,000 per year and this is expected to rise to 250,000 new cases per year by 2015. It needs to be noted that breast cancer is leading in the age groups of 15-34 years which is a cause of concern as this denotes the need for educative and awareness programs targeting younger members of the society, to implement early practices of breast examination. This study was carried out with the intention of assessing the level of knowledge and awareness of carcinoma breast and breast self-examination (BSE) in female college students ...
This study is the first to comprehensively evaluate the cost-effectiveness of the combined use of mammography with CBE in breast cancer early detection while accounting for costs of screening, work-up, biopsies due to true or false-positive examinations, and treatments. We assessed current recommended guidelines from three major cancer organizations and compared them with other realistic strategies that combine mammography and CBE with different starting ages and intervals.. Compared with the alternatives, two of the recommended strategies are cost-effective in general: the NCI/USPSTF recommendation of annual mammography and CBE from ages 40 to 79 years, and the most effective but expensive recommendation from the ACS that begins CBE at age 20 years, followed by mammography and CBE from ages 40 to 79 years. The NCI/USPSTF recommendation of annual mammography alone from ages 40 to 79 years is cost-effective when the sensitivity of CBE is low, according to community-based settings. The NCI/USPSTF ...

Background: Recent global cancer statistics indicate rising global incidence of breast cancer and the increase is occurring at a faster rate in developing countries. Training women how to carry out breast self-examination (BSE) can help them to be alert to any abnormalities in their breasts to speedily seek medical consultation. Health behavior may be influenced by level of awareness about breast cancer. Methods: A cross-sectional community- based study aimed to assess the level of knowledge about breast cancer risk factors, early warning signs, screening approaches and related predictors. Also, to determine the extent of practice of breast self- examination (BSE) among rural women, Minia in the period from February to May 2016. A total of 600 women were randomly included in the study. A questionnaire included socio-demographic characteristics and information related to their knowledge about breast cancer. Data analysis was carried out using SPSS version 19. Results: Moderate and high knowledge scores

Breast self-exam Definition Breast self-examination (BSE) is a diagnostic technique regularly performed by a woman, independent from a physician, both by feeling for anything suspicious in her breasts and by observing any changes through the use of a mirror. Purpose BSE should be performed monthly in order to discover changes in breast tissue, discharge from the nipple, or the onset of pain in the breast area. While 80% of lumps are not cancerous, such discoveries can ultimately lead to the detection of breast cancer . Source for information on Breast Self-Exam: Gale Encyclopedia of Cancer dictionary.

Authors: Miller AB, To T, Baines CJ, Wall C. Title: Canadian National Breast Screening Study-2: 13-year results of a randomized trial in women aged 50-59 years.. Journal: J Natl Cancer Inst 92(18):1490-9. Date: 2000 Sep 20. Abstract: BACKGROUND: Screening for breast cancer with mammography in women aged 50 years or more has been shown to reduce mortality from breast cancer. However, the extent to which mammography contributes to the reduction of mortality in women who also undergo physical examination of the breasts is not known. This study was designed to compare breast cancer mortality following annual screening consisting of two-view mammography and physical examination of the breasts with mortality following annual screening by physical examination only. Breast self-examination was taught to all participants. METHODS: This trial randomly and individually assigned 39 405 women aged 50-59 years, recruited from January 1980 through March 1985, to one of the study arms. The women were followed ...

Introduction. Breast cancer is a global health problem and the most common cancer amongst women, comprising 23% of the female cancers (Parkins & Fernández 2006:S71). It is also the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in low-resourced countries. Women in any age range are at risk of breast cancer and the risks increases with advanced age (Omotara et al. 2012:1). Despite the development of advanced technology in the detection of breast cancer, the mortality rate remains high. Breast cancer is the main cause of cancer mortality in women aged 40-44 years old (Alwan et al. 2012:338; Khanjani, Noor & Rostami 2012:177). Although substantial improvement in survival has been reported in high-income countries, the risk continues to increase. The survival rates in middle- and low-income countries remain low (Alwan et al. 2012:338).. Data from South Africas National Cancer Registry (NCR) show breast cancer as the leading cancer amongst women. South African women have a one in 29 lifetime risk of ...
It is important to act quickly and effectively to provide public reassurance on BSE in sheep. Agency advice has been consistent - there is no reason to avoid the consumption of lamb. But the theoretical risk remains and there is an urgent need to reduce the uncertainty on BSE in sheep and look at whether further precautionary measures are needed. This can only be resolved through effective public action.
Introduction: The clinical breast examination is part of the female comprehensive physical exam and a component that can be difficult to teach to first- and second-year medical students due to the intimate nature of the topic. We have prepared a breast examination self-learning module (SLM) which allows the student to interactively prepare for their clinical skills experiences at their own pace. Methods: The SLM covers the approach to the breast exam using a combination of videos with a clinician and a standardized patient, while also incorporating novel animations to demonstrate some of the more difficult components of the examination (e.g., the axillary exam viewed in a see-through manner). The SLM also contains numerous interactive quiz questions to reinforce specific learning points. The material presented covers materials appropriate for both first- and second-year students. Results: The SLM was used in the 2011-2012 school year at the authors institution. An informal Likert scale survey ...

Women with breast cancer who opt for double mastectomy - a surgery involving removal of both breasts - have nearly eight times the odds of stopping work, according to a study led by an Indian-origin researcher.. Researchers surveyed 1,006 women who were treated for early stage breast cancer and were employed at the time of their diagnosis. The study, led by Professor Reshma Jagsi from University of Michigan in the US, found that use of chemotherapy, race and differences in employment support - including paid sick leave and flexible working schedules - all had an impact on whether women lost more than a month of work or stopped working entirely after treatment.. The most striking statistic in the study results came from the 19% of women who had bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction, a procedure that offers little to no benefit for women at low risk for developing a second cancer, researchers said.. ...
The year was 2018, I was running through life without a single care in the world. A newlywed, I finally stepped down from a very stressful job and was living my dreams, having the time of my life. Life was fun, fast, and full of adventures. I felt carefree with my new husband Mike. Things changed very quickly in April. It was after my routine mammogram, ultrasound, and MRI on April 9, 2018 when things got concerning. As I was having my ultrasound done, the radiologist came in to do a second look. I saw the mass on the screen. My heart sank. As a medical assistant for 31 years, I was familiar with many aspects of testing. It was then the radiologist asked me to schedule a biopsy. I calmly asked the doctor, please, in your opinion, what percent chance is this abnormality on the screen breast cancer? He hesitated. I explained my medical experience and that I lost my mom, Claudia Knaus, to metastatic breast cancer on March 14th, 2015. I explained to the doctor, I just need to mentally prepare myself ...
by Rolf Hefti. Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, its time to pause and reflect. (Mark Twain, 1835-1910, American Author). What is intelligence or sanity? When you follow the whims of the majority? What if the majority is wrong, are you still intelligent or sane?. The majority of women have been led to believe by the orthodox medical industry, in conjunction with the massive support of various breast cancer awareness organizations, that mammograms are indispensable, pretty harmless, and save lives. Consequently, a great number of women have made the choice to get this diagnostic screening test regularly, believing theyve made an informed choice about it.. But how many of these women are aware their decision is not an informed choice, but rather a misinformed choice, because it is founded on only a very selective, one-sided set of data in favor of mammography presented to them by the mainstream medical profession, various breast cancer awareness organizations, and ...
When Barbara Rowan felt a lump in her left breast in October 2011, she thought nothing of it because she remembered a cyst being removed from her mothers breast when Rowan was a child. Her mothers cyst was not a big deal, and Rowan felt sure hers would not be either. Located more on her chest than in her breast, it was a good-sized decent knot, though. The Seagrove Beach resident scheduled a mammogram and as she drove to the hospital, she called her best friend and chatted on the way.
Breast cancer is one of the most commonly recognized forms of cancer, and for good reason. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer in her lifetime.
