by , 03 September 2014

No matter how old you are, you're at risk of developing breast cancer because of your hormones.

An aggressive type of breast cancer is the one that feeds on your hormones. The cancer cells literally have an individual receptor that makes it easy for them to take the hormones from your body.

That's why you need to check your breasts for lumps regularly once you hit puberty and your hormones start to change.

One of the youngest breast cancer victims was a 15 year old girl and it just shows you that being young doesn't necessarily mean you have your health.

Here are five steps to make it easy for you to check yourself for lumps in your breasts before you hop into the shower…

“By the end of summer, his doctor could find no trace of cancer
David J. had an 8cm tumour wrapped around his backbone – entering his spinal column – when he entered the hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia. This former athlete was completely paralysed. Surgery was scheduled, but the cancer was officially declared “incurable”.
Just four days later, David walked out of the hospital, using only a cane. A year later, he was swimming and riding his mountain bike again. By the end of the summer, his doctor could find no trace of cancer in his body.
What on earth helped David finally beat it? Some toxic new chemotherapy? No.

Easily check your breasts on a regular for lumps that could indicate you have cancer

Step 1: Stand facing the mirror with your hands on your hips. Check the surface of your breast visually to see whether there are any differences between the two.
Check for any redness or swelling, dimples or bulges you haven’t seen before.
Step 2: Clasp your hands together and raise them to the ceiling. Look for the same changes you did in step one.
Step 3: Inspect your nipples to see if there’s any discharge. It could be clear, white, yellow or bloody.
Step 4: Inspect your breasts with your hands one at a time. Use the tips of your fingers to gently, but firmly, push on the tissue in your breast starting from underneath your armpit. Keep the arm on the side you’re looking at raised.
Repeat on the other side.
Step 5: Repeat the same inspection of your breasts when you’re lying down. You might want to do this part when you get dressed in your room and you’re able to lie on your bed.
If you have any fears or concerns after your inspection, check in with your doctor.
Perform this check at least once a month to pick up any changes and determine whether you have breast cancer as early as possible.
