  • Risk Factors Of Breast Cancer
  • 1)Alcohol consumption Consuming alcohol is one
    of reason of developing cancer in breast. As per
    studies, drinking more than 3 drinks in a day can
    increase the higher chance of developing cancer
    germs.
  • 2) Physical Inactivity The less you will be
    active in your daily routine the more will be the
    chance of you to get. It is suggested to do at
    least 30 minutes of exercise, in any form, a day.
  • 3) Over weight If your weight is not healthy and
    it is overweight there you need to take proper
    care of that
  • 4 )Reproductive History If you do not have any
    child or you had baby after 30.
  • 5) Taking Hormones Your chances go for if you go
    for hormones replacement therapy.
  • 6) Being Female And most importantly, if you are
    a woman, the chances will be higher of having
    breast cancer.

  • Treatment of Breast Cancer
  • There are various treatment techniques of Breast
    Cancer. We have to go through proper checkup and
    doctors suggestions then your cancer care team
    will be giving Best cancer treatment options to
    you and also they will discuss the time,
    procedure and advantages of the particular
    treatment.
  • These are treatment option for breast cancer
  • Surgery If surgery is required, choice will be
    depending on the tests and the individuals. Types
    of surgery are
  • a) Lumpectomy Its a method of surgery in
    which tumor and other abnormal tissue around the
    affected area is removed. It is also known as
    breast conserving surgery. This can be helpful
    when cancer is diagnosed in early stage.
  • b) Mastectomy when Lumpectomy could help to
    cure it, then there is an another technique in
    which complete breast would be removed by
    surgery, that is called Mastectomy. There are so
    many types of Mastectomy based upon which how
    much area cancer germs has affected, surgery is
    done.

  • Radiation Therapy Radiation Therapy is given
    after surgery to reduce the risk of getting
    affected again by the cancer in breast and also
    helps to live long life
  • .
  • Chemotherapy In this process, anti-cancer drug
    is injected into the vein or can be taken oral.
    Chemo can be used for advanced breast cancer
    treatment whose cancer has spread outside the
    breast and underarm area. The duration of
    treatment is depends upon the tolerance of the
    patient and how well it is working.
  • Hormone Therapy Usually this Therapy is given
    after the surgery to lower the risk of getting
    cancer again. Hormone therapy is a form of
    systemic therapy it reaches cancer cells almost
    anywhere in the body and not just in the breast
    or affected area. It is suggested for those women
    who has hormone receptor-positive (ER-positive
    and/or PR-positive) breast cancers, and it does
    not help the women whose tumors are hormone
    receptor-negative (both ER- and PR-negative).

  • Encouraging wellness and prevention helps improve
    quality of life and can lower costs, too. I saw
    too many patients who had poor health because of
    their decisions, but too often, all they needed
    was a doctor to help point them in the right
    direction.
