Hereditary CA: With grandma having both cancers at a young age, and both ca being the ones linked to a gene you should talk to your doctor about testing and what you would do differently if positive. Also see if you can get more family history data. That would help a lot. Size of your breasts won't really matter. Gather info, calculate risks, and stay on top of screening. ...Read more

Why don't i ever see people wearing shirts that spread awareness of pancreatic cancer?

Why don't i ever see people wearing shirts that spread awareness of pancreatic cancer?

No good screen: Forgive me if i sound jaded, but this is reality. Money drives even good causes. There's no good way to screen for pancreatic cancer that makes money for any medical technology. The expensive "breast cancer awareness" campaigns appears to me to be paid for mostly by the mammogram machine industry. It's okay with me since it helps de-stigmatize and de-magic the illness for ordinary folks. ...Read more

I've breast implants (12yrs) & notice lumps inner cleavage on 1 breast that disappear when I press firmly during self exam. Rippling or cancer fear??

I've breast implants (12yrs) & notice lumps inner cleavage on 1 breast that disappear when I press firmly during self exam. Rippling or cancer fear??

Probably not cancer: It is reassuring that the lumps disappear with compression. They could easily be droplets of ? silicone from an implant rupture. However, breast tissue does remain in the breast after implants are placed. 33 years of age would be very young to have breast cancer but we all know it does happen. See your doctor for evaluation; appropriate breast imaging will help identify the cause of the lumps. ...Read more

Take a deep breath: Find yourself a good oncologist if you don't have one already and make sure he/she answers your questions to the best of his/her ability. Sometimes we have to tell patients what they don't want to hear but in my experience, knowing what's going on is beneficial to patients. Truly wish you the best. ...Read more

Can breast implants make it harder to find breast cancer during mammography?

Can breast implants make it harder to find breast cancer during mammography?

Yes: Breast implants, either saline or silicone, can obscure mammogram images, decreasing the ability of mammograms to reveal breast cancer. Still, studies show that mammograms are an effective way to screen for breast cancer in women with breast implants. If you have breast implants, you can take steps to make your mammogram more successful, such as: Find a facility that sees many women with breast implants. Ask your doctor for a referral to a clinic where radiologists have experience performing and reading mammograms of women with breast implants. , Speak up about your breast implants at your appointment. , If you have noted changes in your breast or if you have concerns, tell your doctor promptly. . There's a slight risk that your breast implants may rupture during a mammogram. But the benefits of mammography in the early detection of breast cancer outweigh this risk. ...Read more

Surgeon said occult breast cancer spread to 2lymp nodes under arm no sign cancer in breast .Surgeon advises take out lymph glands, live breast .Should ?

Standard treatment: The surgeon is giving you the "best evidence" advice. Without detecting any tumor in the breast, it is safer, less mutilating, less painful, less expensive, and better psychologically to leave the breast in place. Usually the tumor is so tiny that it cannot be found. Often, chemotherapy (to kill any cancer cells elsewhere in the body) and radiation to the breast is done. Good luck! ...Read more

Do fibrocystic breast changes increase my risk of breast cancer?

Do fibrocystic breast changes increase my risk of breast cancer?

No, fibrocystic breast changes don't increase your risk of breast cancer: Fibrocystic breast changes are common. Women with this noncancerous (benign) condition often have lumpy, nodular breasts and experience breast pain that varies throughout the menstrual cycle. Doctors don't know exactly what causes fibrocystic breast changes, but the condition is likely due to hormone changes during your menstrual cycle that affect breast tissue. Although fibrocystic breast changes don't increase your risk of breast cancer, having fibrocystic breasts may make it more difficult for you to feel a new breast lump or other abnormal change — such as a persistent breast lump that doesn't go away with your next menstrual cycle or thickening or firmness within lumpy breast tissue. It's important to become familiar with how your breasts normally feel so that you'll know when something just isn't right. If you detect something unusual, make an appointment with your doctor to have it evaluated. ...Read more
