Breast Cancer

breast cancer

Breast cancer is an incurable disease in which the tissues in the breasts grow abnormally. Breast cancer can develop in different areas of the breasts. Breast tissue is made up of three separate layers: the subcutaneous fat, the tissue beneath the skin, and the nipple tissue. The fat surrounding the breasts contains about half of the total amount of fat found in women’s bodies. Breast milk produced by the milk ducts and the connective tissue that surround the mammary glands are made of approximately thirty percent of the entire amount of fat in a woman’s body.

Breast cancer is usually caused by some change or damage to the mammary glands. Other types of cancer, such as mesothelioma, are usually caused by exposure to asbestos, radon, or a substance that is carcinogenic to humans. A woman who has never had breast cancer has a greater chance of getting it if she is a smoker or eats a lot of red meat or processed foods, which all contain high levels of animal fat. Also, it is very important to keep your body well-hydrated all the time, whether you are a smoker or not. Your body produces blood that nourishes and protects you, so you need to be sure to stay hydrated at all times. If you drink tea or coffee, try to choose herbal teas that don’t contain caffeine and/or are not processed with high amounts of chemicals.

In women who are overweight, the risk of developing breast cancer is especially high. You can also increase your risk of developing breast cancer if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: weight gain, swelling in or around the breasts, pain or pressure in your breasts, unexplained bleeding, or changes in your nipple. Many of these symptoms could point to other conditions, so it is important to have them evaluated by a doctor as soon as possible. Although the risk of getting breast cancer is high in obese people, the good news is that some of those who are overweight may be able to lose weight and lower their risk significantly. Also, some women who are thin may still develop breast cancer, but the chances of getting it are lower in these women.
