How Frequently Should a Breast Examination Be Done?

How Frequently Should a Breast Examination Be Done?

Breast examination is a way of detecting early changes that help in detecting lumps or other growth in the breast. This is a manual form of examination that may be carried out by the doctor or even by the patient. This kind of examination helps in detecting the onset of breast cancer and helps in successful treatment of the same. It is an essential screening strategy that all women must go through. Let us cast a glance on the various details regarding this examination, and also how frequently it must be conducted.

  1. Age: Women who have reached the age of 18 are said to have matured physically and sexually. They should perform this examination once they have reached the said age in order to detect any anomalies in the way the physical changes occur in the breast tissue.
  2. Procedure: One should begin by looking at one's reflection in the mirror to find any rashes or dimpling in the breasts. The shape, size and colour of the breasts and nipples must also be studied so as to check for any anomalies. Inverted nipples, redness and soreness must also be reported to the doctor. Once you are done checking the visuals, you can raise your arms and look for any changes. Then, you will need to lie down and feel your breasts by using a circular motion. The finger pads must be used in order to check for any lumps. One must start from the centre and move the breasts sideways. Any wet and slippery feeling must be reported to the doctor immediately.
  3. Pressure: During the breast examination, you must use light pressure for the skin and tissue that lie beneath the breasts, while medium to moderate pressure should be used for the middle portion of the breasts. One must use a firm hand to check the tissue that lies at the back of the breasts, near the rib cage. 
  4. Frequency: One must get into the habit of conducting a breast examination at least once a fortnight or once a month, without fail. You can also go to the gynaecologist for an examination in case you are not confident of conducting it on your own with proper movements and accuracy. You may also journalise your breast examination findings.
  5. Menstrual Cycles: When you are going through your menstrual cycle or period, it is important to remember that your breasts can become tender just before or after the start of the cycle. So, do not panic if you think you have found a lump or any other growth at this time. It is best to check again after a week and then visit the doctor about checking the same.

Nipple pain and soreness amongst the males is mostly due to jogger's nipple or gynaecomastia or rarely trauma or dermatitis. Male breast cancer is just 1% of the Breast cancer patients which we see. I would still like to examine you to feel for any clinically suspicious lump and if need be then do a mammography and ultrasound to rule out male breast cancer.

I smoke about 4-5 cigarettes per day. How much probability of having lung cancer.

Oncologist, Faridabad
It's difficult to calculate the probability, there are some risk calculators available but it's actually difficult to exactly predict as there may be other confounding factors like pollution,environmental factors, occupational hazards, genetic factors. Smoking is not only related to lung cancer but it may lead to head and neck cancer, gastrointestinal, bladder etc.

Can ct scan of abdomen and pelvis shows colon cancer or polyps in the colon. I have done ct scan and I am scared because there is nothing such thing found in it and now m scared of colonoscopy.

Oncologist, Ahmedabad
Dear lybrate-user. If you any abnormal symptoms then see a gastroenterologist, who will decide for colonoscopy which is a office procedure. In which the doctor see inner side of the large intestine. Definitely small lesions are sometimes not picked up on imaging. Colonoscopy is the best to see them.

Mouth Cancer - Warning Signs You Must Watch Out For!

Mouth Cancer - Warning Signs You Must Watch Out For!

The big ‘C’ or cancer is the most dreaded disease, but in most types of cancer, an early diagnosis can stop the progression of the disease and cure it. Mouth cancer or oral cancer is one such type of cancer that can be treated and cured is diagnosed in its early stage.

This type of cancer can affect any part of the mouth including the lips, tongue, throat, salivary glands, sinuses, larynx and pharynx. Some of the symptoms to look out for are:

  1. Velvety red, white or speckled lesions on any part of the mouth
  2. Lumps or patches in and around the mouth and throat
  3. Sores that do not heal within 2 weeks and bleed easily
  4. Swelling of the lips or gums
  5. Pain and tenderness in the mouth
  6. Numbness in any part of the mouth, face or neck
  7. Difficulty moving the tongue or jaw that affects chewing, swallowing or speaking
  8. Loose teeth
  9. Unexplained bleeding in the mouth
  10. Prolonged soreness or hoarseness of the throat
  11. The feeling of something being stuck in your throat
  12. Pain in one ear without any loss of hearing
  13. Drastic weight loss

Some people have a higher risk of suffering from mouth cancer than others. Some of these risk factors are:

  1. Men have twice the risk of developing oral cancer as compared to women.
  2. Men above the age of 50 are at the highest risk
  3. Cigarette, cigar or pipe smokers have a higher risk of developing oral cancer than nonsmokers
  4. Chewing tobacco products and other such smokeless tobacco can also increase the risk of oral cancer
  5. Excessive alcohol consumption makes a person more vulnerable to this disease
  6. Family history of cancer
  7. Excessive exposure to UV radiation from the sun at an early age
  8. Certain strains of Human papillomavirus (HPV).

Visiting a dentist regularly can dramatically reduce your chances of suffering from mouth cancer. Ideally, an oral cancer screening should be performed once every 3 years up to the age of 40 and annually from there on. This is because a dentist will be able to examine your mouth and see parts that you cannot see easily. In case he suspects oral cancer, a biopsy may be needed to further confirm the diagnosis.

Further tests such as blood tests, X-ray and scans may also be needed. The smaller the ulcer, the easier it is to cure. Oral cancer can be treated with surgery to remove the tumor or through radiation and chemotherapy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dentist.

I presume she is lung cancer patient, although you have not mentioned the same (as you wrote she is EGFR positive, ALK4 and ROS1 and PDL1 are done in lung) Geftinib is an EGFR inhibitor given in lung cancer EGFR +ve, with good response rates. It does cause diarrhoea and rash in a few patients though. If she has other symptoms, treat her symptomatically. We try to prolong their life by giving palliative treatment, which may be months to few years in exceptional cases. But cure is not a target.
