Will your breasts stop growing if you have breast cancer?

No

Breast
No. Breast cancer can make the breast bigger, but it does not stop them from growing.

Not usually

Breast_cancer
Painless lump is the main sign of breast cancer. So look for any lump. Otherwise go see a skin specialist(dermatologist in case the itching is severe or getting worse...it may go away on its own if it is minor probelm.

Dr. Eva Duckett answered:

Can pain in breasts mean i have breast cancer?

Not usually

Breast_cancer
Brian I am assuming you are male. Breast pain and lump in a male is usually a non cancerous condition called gynecomastia. It is a hormonal side effect of many medications in adult males but is seen during normal hormonal changes during puberty. You should be examined and a mammogram and/or sonogram may be needed to confirm that it is gynecomastia.

Dr. John J. Fung answered:

Will tattoos on breasts give you breast cancer?

No

Cancer
For the most part, breast cancers arise from the duct tissues that are responsible for making or secreting milk. Tattoos are usually inert colored inks that are injected just beneath the skin layer and do not get excreted in milk and thus not exposed to ductular tissues.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

Can foreplay with breasts lead to breast cancer?

No

Breast_cancer
Cancer results from things that alter the chemistry of the nucleic acids in the epithelial cells and/or causes the cells to proliferate; fondling can no more produce this than it can give a woman a sunburn. If it's any reassurance, and not implying anything else -- breast cancer has historically been far more common among nuns than among prostitutes.

Can a guy touching your breasts cause breast cancer?

Not at all

Breast_cancer
Some breast cancer is related to heredity and runs in families. Most of the time, we don't know why it starts. But touching the breasts has nothing to do with it at all. In fact, breast self-examination is one of the best ways to find a lump, which should be checked by your doctor to see whether further follow-up (mammogram) is needed. Don't let anyone touch you there if you don't want him to.
