Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

Right breast cancer, no lymph node taken out. Had mastectomy, clear margins, 1.2 cm tumor, mitotic rate 1, grade 1, total score 5. Treatment recommend?
Watch: If mastectomy performed, no RT needed. The chance of nodal involvement appearing later is a possibility. It seems when tumor spreads to lymph nodes, the disease remains in the lymph node chain and will not metastasize to other organs such as lung, liver, or bone. When nodes are left to expand, they extend to level 3 nodes, then eventually impinge on axillary vein, a reason for resection. ...Read more
I have breast cancer tumor. Went from 3cm to 5 CM after biopsy but stable since. If outer part is liquid, can it be drained by needle prior to surgery?
Drainage unnecessary: The size of the tumor does not include any bleeding from the biopsy. Therefore, if it was 3 cm before the biopsy (&the biopsy was recent), the tumor is still 3cm. You need not worry about this fluid and may proceed with your definitive surgery. I hope all goes well. ...Read more

There is a direct correlation between cancer and blood clotting ability, i.e. cancer increases the risk that venous blood clots will occur. And there is also a direct correlation between increased clotting and miscarriages. ...Read more
We are not able to control most risk factors for breast cancer, such as being female, aging, and family history. We can control our weight, as obesity is linked to an increased risk of breast cancer. Limit your alcohol intake, have babies, breast feed, and increase your physical activity.
In addition we can perform routine screening. Early detection leads to the best chance of a cure. ...Read more

Unrelated: In a 33 yo female the composition of the breast is mostly glandular and ductal so that mammo shows the breast to be composed primarily of firm tissue which doesn't tend to sag. As one gets older, much of the breast tissue is replaced by fat which has the potential of causing loss of conformity and is one of the factors leading to a sagging breast which is found in your case. ...Read more
Can estimate but. ..: The gail model which is available on the nci website is a good way to assess "relative" risk but will not tell you if someone is going to get breast cancer.

This is the reason for population screening via bse, cbe, & mammography. ...Read more

To have breast reconstruction done on both breasts at the same time 4. To avoid the anxiety and nuisance of mammograms and biopsies in the future. ...Read more
Why does one of my breasts sag more than the other? Could this be related to breast cancer? 33 year old female.
Not certain cancer.: The left and right sides of our bodies are never perfectly symmetrical so the fact that the breasts are not mirror images of each other is not concerning. However, if you're saying that one of your breasts looks different than it usually would look, then you would really need an investigation including an exam and mammogram at least. ...Read more
What are the main causes of breast cancer? So my girlfriend can avoid them. Or is it one of those random cancers and not an acquired cancer?
10% are congenital: While 10% of breast cancers are congential, at least 90% are acquired, the major factor related to the MMTV virus. The long terminal repeat of the virus enters the Wnt1 gene within ductal mucosa causing overexpression of B-catenin and transformation of the cell to Ca. This holds true for lymphocytes and prostate tissue having the Wnt -1 gene and a high level of association with Br Ca. ...Read more

Mammogram&Self-Exam: The best way to check for breast cancer is a screening mammogram. It's safe, inexpensive, and noninvasive; it is most effective after menopause; most recommend starting at age 40. Self-examination is not as highly-endorsed but I think it can be a very effective way to find cancers when done often. Lastly, having a yearly physician exam is important as well. ...Read more
