Here's how to put a breast cancer detection plan together…
Use these four steps to stop the spread of breast cancer
As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure. To help prevent breast cancer
, you must eat a healthy diet
, exercise regularly, don’t smoke and drink alcohol in moderation.
That said, if you do get cancer
, it’s critical you detect it before it spreads.
Here are four steps to a solid and reliable breast cancer
Daily routine checks: Instead of having a plan that requires you to remember to check for lumps once a month, make it a daily routine. While soaping yourself in the bath, run your fingers along and around your breasts to pick up any changes. This also stops you from trying to remember if something you feel was there a month ago.
Know your family history: If a direct relative has had breast cancer before the age of 50, your risk for breast cancer increases significantly. If a more distant relative has had cancer, it increases your chances but not as significantly. It’s important to know your family history because you’ll be more vigilant when it comes to early detection if you know your risk is higher.
Work with your doctor: Blanket annual mammograms are less and less in favour with the medical community because they’re not necessary for every women out there. Work out a reasonable timeframe for a mammogram based on your particular needs and risk profile with your doctor.
Know your breast density: After your mammogram, ask for the report that shows your breast density. High breast density is a risk factor for breast cancer so it needs to form part of your breast cancer detection plan. Also speak to your doctor about having digital mammograms if you have dense breasts (large volume of tissue compared to fat) because traditional mammograms are less effective in this case.
