Prolactin Lead Breast Cancer
Prolactin: Elevated prolactin levels have been linked to an increase in breast cancer risk, however most women who are not breastfeeding but are producing milk go to the doctor with this complaint leading to dignostic workup and treatment. The risk will be mitigated by the treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
No: This particular scare story began with an internet hoax by an individual who wanted to market his own, not-very-effective deodorant. It takes only minutes to make up a lie and they take on a life of their own. I am sorry someone troubled you. There's nothing "spiritual" about being "open-minded" to obvious untruths. http://www.pathguy.com/antipers.htm. ...Read more
No: 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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes: Spot compression is used to determine if an area of abnormal appearing tissue on a mammogram spreads out like normal breast tissue or holds together densely like a more worrisome mass. Usually it spreads out and you forget it. Even when it leads to a biopsy because it doesn't compress it doesn't by any means absolutely mean cancer, it just increases those chances. ...Read more
My aunt has 3c breast cancer, for how much months/years will she be treated? How much can she live? Can she be able to lead her normal life again?
I often bite my girlfriends breast and leave bruises i m wondering if that could lead to breast cancer?
Unknown: I honestly cannot remember any data that solidly links repeated trauma to the breast and cancer of the breast although it is tempting to theorize there may be some association. Regardless and with all due respect, maybe you should take it a little easier there....... Best regards. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
Will taking fenugreek (one capsule of 610mg per day) lead to overdose of oestrogen and cause breast cancer? Esp when my mom has history of cancer.
Who knows/why take?: Fenugreek is used for many conditions, but so far, there isn’t enough scientific evidence to determine whether or not it is effective for any of them. It is POSSIBLY SAFE when taken in amounts used for medicinal purposes (amounts larger than normally found in food) for up to 6 months. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for fenugreek. ...Read more
No, but...: All women at some time have some of the changes we used to call "fibrocystic disease". Fibrosis and cysts pose no risk. If a woman has sclerosing adenosis or one of the atypical epithelial hyperplasias, her risk for a subsequent breast cancer is somewhat increased. I'd urge old-fashioned self-exam at the same time each month for all women, with biopsy of any dominant mass. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Occurs when glandular cells lining the milk ducts and lobules of the human breast begin to grow in an unregulated manner. 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 ...Read more
Most breast cancers are carcinomas. This is a type of breast cancer. These cancers start in the cells that line organs and tissues. In fact, breast cancers are often a type of carcinoma called adenocarcinoma, which starts in cells that make glands (glandular tissue). Breast adenocarcinomas start in the ducts (the milk ducts) or ...Read more
