Ct neck shows scattered subcm short axis dimension lymph nodes anterior posterior cervical chains bilat. 2 x triple neg breast cancer surv. Biopsy?

Imaging/biopsy: You have been through a lot. Imaging with ct scan provides information and helps guide next steps, but is not diagnostic. A biopsy obtains tissue for pathology to make the diagnose of lymph node. The timing of biopsy in relation to your overall health will be best addressed between you and your doc. Take family or friend with you. ...Read more

Breast Cancer (Female) (Definition)

Breast cancer results when glandular cells lining the milk ducts and lobules of the human breast begin to grow in an unregulated manner. The growth occurs initially inside the ducts but eventually breaks outside into the breast tissue and ultimately spreads both to the lymph nodes in the armpit and via the bloodstream to other parts of the body. Because of the promoting affect of estrogen almost all breast cancer occurs in women and is a rarity in men. The unregulated growth is due to both inherited and acquired genetic defects. It is the most common malignancy in women but it often curable if found early and treated effectively with surgery, hormonal therapy, chemotherapy and targeted therapy, or a combination thereof. Early detection before the malignancy becomes large enough to be felt depends on mammography/sonography and MRI imaging of the breast on an annual basis. ...Read more

How high are the chances of having breast cancer and cervical cancer at the age of 24?

Mixed picture: Outside of genetic causes, breast cancer in a 24 year old is very uncommon, although it can occur. Cervical cancer, on the other hand is not uncommon in that age group, and would be much more of a concern. Fortunately, having regular pap smears is an excellent way of screening for the precursors of cervical cancer and should be part of your healthcare plan. ...Read more

At what age should you be screened for breast cancer or cervical cancer if grandmother and aunt had each at early age in 30s/40s? Brca testing?;

At what age should you be screened for breast cancer or cervical cancer if grandmother and aunt had each at early age in 30s/40s? Brca testing?;

See genetics: Early age breast cancer might signal an inherited gene mutation such as the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene, for which screening would begin around the age of 25. See a geneticist to assess risk for an inherited cancer syndrome. Cervical cancer screening begins by age 21. Family history may be a sign of shared environmental or lifestyle factors but inherited risk unlikely; tell your GYN the family history. ...Read more

Does getting your first period at an age lower than 13 actually increase your risk of ovarian/cervical/breast cancer?

Does getting your first period at an age lower than 13 actually increase your risk of ovarian/cervical/breast cancer?

Minimal effect: Statistically speaking it may slightly increase the risk of breast cancer and Ovarian cancer. But in an individual person it makes no big difference , so I would not worry about it as there is a long life to make amends and live by a healthy lifestyle and overcome any such risks. If you eat healthy and exercise daily, the risk of cancer goes down considerably! ...Read more

Is there any proved research that taking hormonal-based contraceptive could cause or trigger breast cancer or cervix cancer as well as fallopian cyst?

Is there any proved research that taking hormonal-based contraceptive could cause or trigger breast cancer or cervix cancer as well as fallopian cyst?

No: hormonal activity can only act as a stimulus for an already existing cancer. Gasoline can stimulate a fire, it doesn't cause it. Breast and Cervix cancer have already been shown to be associated with certain viruses which induce the malignant transformation ...Read more

Cancer (Definition)

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
