A few tips and strategies to follow to avoid breast cancer

Breast cancer is one of the most feared diagnoses in women. When cancerous cells develop in a woman's breast, irregular lumps, changes in the shape or size of the breast and discharge of blood from the nipples may be experienced. There are lots of preventive measures that you can take to avoid breast cancer. It is important to live a healthy life with as less exposure to toxins as possible. Here are some tips and strategies that can lower your risk of breast cancer

Preventive measures

Plant based diet

Studies have shown that a high plant based diet, full of vegetables and fruits, is packed with antioxidants, minerals, and nutrients that lower the risk of breast cancer. Eat light, and avoid refined sugar and processed meat. Try to construct a healthy Mediterranean diet plan rich in olive oil and nuts.

Maintain an appropriate weight

Do not gain extra weight as obesity and excessive weight gain are related to breast cancer. Cut down on fat and exercise regularly to lead an active life.

Breastfeeding

If you are a new mom, breastfeed your baby as it has numerous health benefits for both you and your child, including lowering the chances of breast cancer in the mother.

Sleep

It is important to get 8 hours of sleep every night to live a healthy life. Many studies have shown that a short duration of sleep and exposure to light at night that disrupts the circadian rhythm increases the risk of breast cancer.

Avoid tobacco and alcohol

Do not smoke as it increases the chances of cancer in other organs and also leads to toxin inclusion in the body. Also, be sure to drink in moderation as excess alcohol consumption is cancer causing offender.

Artificial hormones

Women during menopause often resort to hormone replacement therapy, and the extended use of this therapy can heighten the risk of breast cancer. Therefore, it is recommended to look for other options to smoothen your transition to the menopausal phase.

What is the cause of bone cancer and what is its symptoms?

MS ( General Surgery)
Oncologist
Ask Free Question
The exact cause of most bone cancers is not known. However, scientists have found that bone cancers are associated with a number of other conditions; still most people with bone cancers do not have any known risk factors. Research is underway to learn more about the causes of these cancers what are the risk factors for bone cancer? a risk factor is anything that affects your chance of getting a disease such as cancer. Different cancers have different risk factors. Eg: exposing skin to strong sunlight is a risk factor for skin cancer. Smoking is a risk factor for cancers of the lung, mouth, larynx, bladder, kidney, and several other organs. But having a risk factor, or even several, does not mean that you will get the disease. Most people with bone cancers do not have any apparent risk factors. For example children with certain rare inherited syndromes have an increased risk of developing osteosarcoma. Chordomas seem to run in some families. The genes responsible have not yet been found, but familial chordoma has been linked to changes on chromosome.

Dear smoking is a silent killer. It does not happen overnight but slowly it gets absorbed in lungs and blood and not only damages lung but also other parts leading to cancers of head and neck, lungs, gastrointestinal tract like intestinal, rectal, bladder and kidney and even leukaemia. Annual health screening will help you apart from if you have any specific problem then you can meet doctors earlier also.

Hello doctors, my mother had breast cancer operation 3 week ago. Now the doctors are telling me to have chemotherapy. But I don't want her to have chemotherapy and I requested them to give her oral chemo but they are not at all ready to do so? So will oral chemo work or not and is it necessary for chemotherapy. As the doctors have said that they have no guarantee that even after giving chemo the cancer will not be created again . So refer me !

DNB, MBBS

Dear sir, post breast surgery, depending on histopathology reports, size and hormone receptor status, chemotherapy is decided. For breast no oral chemotherapy is done, however if she is hormone receptor positive, hormonal therapy may be done as a systemic treatment, but detailed histopathology reports are required to decide about further treatment, so please share.

I often have mouth ulcers and that too in large number. Are these the symptoms of mouth cancer?

Ulcers usually disappear within few days. If persists longer then you need to be diagnosed properly to rule out the cause. It can be due to poor oral hygiene, digestion problem like constipation, vitamin deficiency. Take care of your oral hygiene by brushing twice daily and rinse your mouth after eating anything. Take zevit tabs once daily for 15 days. Drink plenty of water.
