Of Lumps, Bumps and Breast Cancer

You feel a mild soreness in the breast so you checked for lumps. You felt a little bump. The next best step is to consult a doctor, you might have breast cancer. Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that starts from the cells of the breast. Breast cancer occurs mainly in women but this does not mean that men are safe from this disease.

A woman's breast is made up of lobules, which are glands that make the milk; ducts, which connect lobules to the nipples; fat and connective tissues; blood vessels; and lymph vessels. Most breast cancers begin in the ducts. It may also begin in the lobules then spread to other tissues.

When one feels a lump in the breast, there is really no virtual worry because most lumps are benign which means that they are not cancerous. In fact, benign breast tumors are abnormal growths but do not really pose threats because they do not spread outside of the breast. However, some benign lumps increase the risk in having breast cancer.

Then there are lumps that are not really tumors at all which are often caused by fibrocystic changes -- cysts are fluid-filled sacs while fibrosis is the formation of scar-like tissue. These changes can cause swelling of the breasts resulting to being lumpy and sometimes a fluid discharge from the nipples. There are different types of breast cancer and knowing them will greatly help in assessing the disease.

Carcinoma in situ is a term used for early stage of breast cancer where the cancer cells are still confined to the place where it started. In particular, the cancer cells are confined in the lobules or the ducts, depending on where it started. The cancer cells have not gone into the fatty tissues in the breast nor spread to other organs of the body.

Ductal carcinoma in situ is the most common type of noninvasive breast cancer. Similar with Carcinoma in situ, the cancer cells have spread through the walls of the duct into the fatty tissue of the breasts. Almost all women with breast cancer at this stage can be cured and the best way to find is through the use of mammogram.

Lobular carcinoma in situ is the condition which begins in the milk-making glands but does not go through the walls of the lobules. This is not a true cancer but this can increase the risk of a woman to have breast cancer later. For this very reason, it is of utmost importance for women with this type of condition to follow the guidelines for breast cancer.

Infiltrating (or invasive) ductal carcinoma is a type of breast cancer that starts in the milk passage, breaks through the duct walls, invades the fatty tissue of the breast then spread to other parts of the body. This is the most common type of breast cancer. Infiltrating lobular carcinoma starts in the milk glands then travel to the other parts of the body.

As of now, there is no exact cause for breast cancer but there are certain factors that are linked to the disease. Some factors that cannot be controlled are age, gender, family history, personal history of breast cancer, and race. Factors such as not having children, birth control pills, diet, exercise, and alcohol are some of the factors that can be controlled which may lessen or heighten the risk of a woman to have breast cancer.

There are several tests that may confirm and disconfirm if you suspect breast cancer such as imaging tests which includes mammography, breast ultrasound, and ductogram and biopsy which includes fine needle aspiration biopsy, stereotactic core needle biopsy, and surgical biopsy.

Mesothelioma Cancer Diagnosed- Questions to ask

Following diagnosis, uppermost amongst a patient's thoughts will be these..."Am I going to die?", "Will I be in much pain?". As there is no cure for mesothelioma it is important that the patient is advised that with modern treatment they can, for months or years, live a normal life for most of the time. And that the modern drugs are very effective at keeping pain under control and relieving it.

I would advise taking a look on the internet for information about the disease and printing out relevant bits.

Obviously the treatment aspect is extremely important and the patient and close relatives must ensure that they get the consultant and doctors to explain comprehensively how it is all going to work. It is advisable to compile a list of questions to put to the medical staff prior to any appointments or consultations and to get a relative or close friend to go along with the patient.

There is no harm in taking notes with you and you might even consider taping the discussion. These are potentially highly stressful and upsetting meetings which might mean that you don't remember all that was said. You'll want to know where and when the treatments will take place. Include questions about possible side effects and the range and type of drugs they will be taking. And how the drugs will be taken, injection, by mouth, intravenous etc.

Difficulties arise when a question is asked about how long the patient has got to live. It is impossible for the doctor to predict the future exactly for an individual patient and they would be putting unecessary pressure on themselves if they did. This uncertainty is not good for the patient and vague answers never satisfy anyone. I would push the doctor for an educated guess based on his experience and the results he has at hand. This is only my opinion. I would want to know if I've got months (which could be two or three) or years (which could be 12 months).

Fears can often be worse than reality. That is why it is important to collate as much knowledge about the illness and disease as possible. Discussing this new knowledge with friends and relatives can help relieve the stress as the treatment progresses.

5 Myths About Protecting Yourself from Skin Cancer

 

Sara spends much of her summer near the beach. She lives in a mild climate and is very athletic. She loves to swim, bike and play games outdoors. Sara knows the dangers of the sun and so she opts for tanning salons to get her 'golden glow' while being sure to apply sunscreen every day before heading out.

 

The summers can be very humid, but most of the year is mild or even below freezing during the harshest winter months.

Joseph lives in a cooler, northern climate. The beach has never been much of a draw for him and he spends most of his time doing indoor activities or at his job. Joseph doesn't worry about sunscreen and only had one sunburn that he can remember and that was when he was a child.

 

Photos of Newport Beach

 

Which of these examples do you most associate yourself with? Did you know that Sara and Joseph are both at risk of developing skin cancer? We have all heard the warnings about the dangers of sun exposure. We know all about the importance of wearing sunscreen and hats. But are YOU protected from skin cancer? Consider these myths and facts:

MYTH ONE:

Tanning Beds are Safer than the Sun
20 minutes of exposure in a tanning bed is roughly equivalent to four hours in the sun. Although sun beds use UVA rather than UVB rays, 'The Skin Cancer Answer' states that "UV-A penetrates more deeply into the skin than UV-B, can cause skin cancer, and may suppress the immune system."

MYTH TWO:

Wearing Sunscreen at the Beach is Protection
85 percent of UV rays can even make it through on cloudy days. That means you are equally at risk in the car, walking the dog or letting your children out to play at any time of year - even when you're not at the beach. Of course, you are usually less attired at the beach and so covering up is recommended even when wearing sunscreen. Sunscreen also wears off with sweat and water and should always be applied every two hours or after getting wet.

MYTH THREE:

Taking Care Of Your Skin Now Will Protect You
Sadly, skin cancer can take 20 or more years to develop. The Skin Cancer Foundation states that most people receive about 80 percent of their lifetime sun exposure before the age of 18. Just one blistering sunburn in childhood is estimated to double the risk of melanoma later in life. Taking better care now will reduce the risk, but not eliminate the damage already done.

MYTH FOUR:

Having a Tan Means You're More Protected
Dark skinned individuals are less likely to develop cancer, but tanned skin is actually damaged skin. Repeated tanning injures the skin and increases the risk of skin cancer.

MYTH FIVE:

You Can't get Burned on Overcast Days
Just because the sun is hidden by some cloud does not mean that you don't need protection from the harmful effects of the suns rays. So how do you plan to protect your family this year? Some suggestions are to limit exposure to the sun - especially for infants. Examine your skin for early signs of damage. Use a sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher and apply it at least 30 minutes before exposure and every two hours after that. Teach your children good safety habits and be sure you and they are covered up when outdoors. Have fun and be safe.

Learn how to stop skin cancer dead in its tracks

It seems like everyday we're hearing about what we can do to protect ourselves from cancer. All the information sometimes seems more daunting then helpful. But, while many cancers are hard to avoid, skin cancer is one of the most preventable and curable if treated early. Just by following a few simple guidelines, you can continue to enjoy outdoor activities while protecting yourself from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.

 

I did this when my father was diagnosed with stomach cancer. When I showed the consultant what I had been studying, I sensed a more open discussion and perhaps a few more technical details were covered that otherwise might not have been.

Below are several factors that increase your risk for developing skin cancer. Please keep in mind that whether or not you fall into one of these groups, protecting yourself from the sun is still one of the very most important factors in preventing skin cancer.

Risk Factors
Moles:

A normal mole can become malignant melanoma, so anyone who has a large number of moles is at a greater risk of developing this disease.

Family History:

Ten percent of patients with this disease have a close family member who has had it.

Personal History:

A person with any skin cancer (Squamous cell carcinoma or Basal cell carcinoma) has a 30 percent increased risk for melanoma. Weakened Immune System: People who have organ transplants or are on immuno-suppressant medications, persons with AIDS, HIV or other cancers are also at an increased risk for the disease.

Skin Color:

White skinned individuals are 20 percent more likely to develop melanoma than African Americans. Light colored eyes, hair freckles and people who burn easily are all at a higher risk.

Age:

Skin's ability to repair sun damage decreases with age, so people's risk for skin cancer increases as they get older. UV Radiation: Greater exposure to UV radiation greatly increases an individual's risk for skin cancer. Living close to the equator, having an outdoor lifestyle, using tanning booths or sunlamps and experiencing blistering sunburns in childhood are common risk factors for developing melanoma.

Now that you know how to determine if you are at greater risk for developing skin cancer, let's examine the physical changes that occur in a mole with melanoma. The most important thing to remember is that when a melanoma is detected at an early stage and treated, it is usually curable.

The ABCD's of Moles and Melanoma
A - Asymmetry: Most early melanomas are asymmetrical; a line through the middle would not create matching halves. Common moles are round and symmetrical.

B - Border Irregularity: The borders of early melanomas are often uneven and may have scalloped or notched edges. Common moles have smoother, more even borders.

C - Color: Common moles usually are a single shade of brown. Varied shades of brown, tan, or black are often the first sign of melanoma. As melanomas progress, the colors red, white and blue may appear.

D - Diameter: Early melanomas tend to grow larger than common moles - generally to at least the size of a pencil eraser (about 6mm, or 1/4 inch, in diameter). However, they may also be smaller.

Remember, checking your skin should be part of your medical regimen, and adults should schedule an annual check-up at a dermatologist office. The only way to diagnose a melanoma, with certainty, is for a qualified pathologist to examine tissue under a microscope.

Now that you understand the importance of skin care protection, you need to know how to best protect yourself and your loved ones.

Sunscreen:

The best sunscreen is one that you wear daily! Your sunscreen should have a zinc oxide content of 6 percent or greater, because zinc will be stable in the light and not lead to sensitivity reactions. Most importantly, zinc blocks UVB and UVA long rays. Zinc is also a great sunscreen, because the dimethicone coated (Z-Cote) is both transparent and non-greasy, unlike the thick sunscreens of the past. Protective Clothing: When exposed to sunlight wear protective clothing such as broad-brimmed hats, long-sleeved shirts, long pants and UV-protective sunglasses.

Summary:

While everyone worries about the prospect of cancer, it's important to remember that you can take a proactive role in protecting yourself and your family. Skin cancer is highly preventable by wearing sunscreen and protective clothing and staying out of the sun during peak hours (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) as much as possible. Furthermore, by keeping a close eye on moles and regularly seeing a dermatologist, skin cancer is usually treatable and even curable if found early.
