Changing lifestyle also increases the risk of breast cancer ...

Can women's living be the cause of cancer? Know ...

In India, 27 percent of the cases of cancer in women are of breast cancer. This kind of problem occurs in the early years of the age of 30, which may also occur in the age of 50 to 64 years later. Some of the symptoms of breast cancer are formation of lumps in the breast or armpit, bleeding from the breast nipple, orange spots on the skin of the breast, pain in the breast, swelling due to lymph nodes in the throat or armpit etc.

According to statistics, one in 28 women is suspected to have breast cancer at some time during their lifetime . According to the Indian Medical Association (IMA), breast cancer is started in Indian women at an early age . Due to lack of awareness and delay in diagnosis of the disease, there is difficulty in treatment.

In breast cancer , the tissue or tissue of this disease develops inside the breast. The factors behind this disease are the gene structure, environment and faulty lifestyle. It is important to protect women above the age of 30 to be screened. Also, if some changes are made in the lifestyle, then the fear of this disease can be reduced.

IMA President Padmashri Dr. K.K. Aggarwal said that it has been known that due to sudden changes in DNA , cancer occurs in normal breast cells . Although some of these changes come from parents. But the rest of such changes happen in life itself.

These cells are growing fresh with the help of protoncogenes. When these cells have mutations or mutations, then these cancer cells grow uncontrollably.

Such mutation is known as oncogene. An uncontrolled cell growth can cause cancer. Mutations occur in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. Mutated genes from parents increase the risk of breast cancer. High risk women should undergo MRI and mammogram every year.

Dr. Aggarwal said that estrogen accelerates the division of tissues of mammary glands. If estrogen is high for a long time in a woman, then the risk of breast cancer is increased. Exposure to estrogen is believed to be greater if menstruation begins at or before 11 years of age or menopause occurs at age 55 or older. Women should undergo screening mammogram once every year from the age of 45 to 54 years. Women 55 or older should be screened annually.

Some measures to prevent breast cancer:

- Reduce alcohol consumption: Alcohol increases the risk of getting breast cancer . If you are addicted, do not take more than one peg during the day, because there is a risk of even small amounts of alcohol.

- Avoid smoking: Research suggests that there is a connection between smoking and breast cancer . Therefore, it is good to leave this habit.

- Keep body weight under control: Live an active life. Overweight or obesity increases the risk of breast cancer . Do exercise for about 30 minutes daily.

- Breastfeeding: Breastfeeding prevents breast cancer.

- Reduce hormone therapy: Breast cancer risk increases when the duration of hormone therapy is from three to five years. Use the lowest dose that is effective for you. It will be better if the doctor himself monitors how much hormone you take.

Eat a healthy diet: Eat foods rich in fruits and vegetables, whole grains and low fat.

- Avoid stress: It weakens immunity and messes up the body's defense system. Yoga practice, deep breathing and exercising are beneficial.
