Save Your Breast

19th October

World Breast Cancer Day

Save Your Breast

Breast cancer is considered nowadays the most frequent malignant tumor in women worldwide and the main cause of death between 45 and 55 years old. One million cases are diagnosed annually worldwide, most of them in advanced stages and with a high mortality. However, if it is discovered with time, the disease can be treated successfully.

AROUND 80,000 cases of breast cancer are registered every year in India. Only 50 per cent of these cases are cured due to early detection. This year alone, over 40,000 women in the US will die from breast cancer (that’s one every 12 minutes), and another 200,000 will be diagnosed – what terrible figures! Each one of us could be prey to breast disease; it is my intention to help transform these grim statistics that grip our culture.

One can have the idea about the estimated new cases and deaths from breast cancer in the United States in 2009 by looking at the data below:

  • New cases: 192,370 (female); 1,910 (male)
  • Deaths: 40,170 (female); 440 (male)

The breast is the upper ventral region of the torso of a primate, in left and right sides, which in a female contains the mammary gland that secretes milk used to feed infants. Both men and women develop breasts from the same embryological tissues. However, at puberty, female sex hormones, mainly estrogen, promote breast development which does not occur in men. As a result, women’s breasts become far more prominent than those of men.

Despite all the efforts that have gone into diagnostics and treatments, breast cancer remains the leading cause of cancer deaths in women. One of the major challenges in bringing this pernicious disease under control is that each individual patient’s breast cancer is unique. A treatment that is effective for one woman may be ineffective or even harmful for another, and there’s been no reliable way of predicting which drug would best serve an individual patient.

In the month of October of 1985, measures were taken by Astrazeneca to advertise and promote awareness program. Thus October is celebrated as Breast Cancer awareness Month. You can find more details of this on EHow. Colour has always been a strongest arm to raise voice. And for the breast cancer awareness PINK is the theme.During this month to raise money, parties are organized such as theme parties or “pink day” (when all has to wear pink attire or accessories”).

Pink ribbon: Symbol for Breast Cancer awareness

Remember, it’s not only a ribbon but a celebration of life for many. This symbol started with Target Pink Charm Bracelet, Susan G. Koman and many who helped to Raise Awareness of Breast Cancer and eradicate breast cancer.

What is Breast Cancer?

Breast Cancer forms in the tissues of the breast, usually on the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and the lobules (glands that make milk). It occurs in both men and women, although male breast cancer is rare. Read More

Symptoms

Unfortunately, breast cancer is known as a “silent killer,” because often, you don’t see symptoms until the disease has progressed significantly. The best way to stay on top of cancer symptoms is to do monthly self-exams to check for lumps, thickening, or changes, such as dimpling around the nipple, which may signify the onset of breast cancer.

Getting to know your own breasts is crucial in the prevention of cancer. That’s because you’re going to know your own breast tissue far better than any doctor ever could, even though of course you can and should have a professional medical exam on a regular basis to check for just these changes. Regular mammograms at a certain age, such as over the age of 40, are also imperative if you want to prevent that monster.

Brachytherapy

Brachytherapy (from the Greek word brachys, meaning “short-distance”), also known as internal radiotherapy, sealed source radiotherapy, curietherapy or endocurietherapy, is a form of radiotherapy where a radiation source is placed inside or next to the area requiring treatment. Brachytherapy is commonly used as an effective treatment for cervical,[1] prostate,[2] breast,[3] and skin cancer[4] and can also be used to treat tumours in many other body sites.[5] Brachytherapy can be used alone or in combination with other therapies such as surgery, External Beam Radiotherapy (EBRT) and chemotherapy.

In contrast to EBRT in which high-energy x-rays are directed at the tumour from outside the body, brachytherapy involves the precise placement of radiation sources directly at the site of the cancerous tumour.[5][6] A key feature of brachytherapy is that the irradiation only affects a very localized area around the radiation sources. Exposure to radiation of healthy tissues further away from the sources is therefore reduced. In addition, if the patient moves or if there is any movement of the tumour within the body during treatment, the radiation sources retain their correct position in relation to the tumour. These characteristics of brachytherapy provide advantages over EBRT – the tumour can be treated with very high doses of localised radiation, whilst reducing the probability of unnecessary damage to surrounding healthy tissues.[5][6]

A course of brachytherapy can be completed in less time than other radiotherapy techniques. This can help reduce the chance of surviving cancer cells dividing and growing in the intervals between each radiotherapy dose.[6] Patients typically have to make fewer visits to the radiotherapy clinic compared with EBRT, and the treatment is often performed on an outpatient basis. This makes treatment accessible and convenient for many patients.[7][8] These features of brachytherapy reflect that most patients are able to tolerate the brachytherapy procedure very well.

Brachytherapy represents an effective treatment option for many types of cancer. Treatment results have demonstrated that the cancer cure rates of brachytherapy are either comparable to surgery and EBRT, or are improved when used in combination with these techniques.[9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16] In addition, brachytherapy is associated with a low risk of serious adverse side effects.[17][18]

Bathsheba’s Breast

Bathsheba’s Breast: Women, Cancer, and History
The Johns Hopkins University Press | 2002-05-29 | ISBN: 0801869366 | 320 pages | PDF | 1.5 MB

The stories of women throughout the ages who have confronted breast cancer, from ancient times to the present.

In 1967, an Italian surgeon touring Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum stopped in front of Rembrandt’s Bathsheba at the Well, on loan from the Louvre, and noticed an asymmetry to Bathsheba’s left breast; it seemed distended, swollen near the armpit, discolored, and marked with a distinctive pitting. With a little research, the physician learned that Rembrandt’s model, his mistress Hendrickje Stoffels, later died after a long illness, and he conjectured in a celebrated article for an Italian medical journal that the cause of her death was almost certainly breast cancer.

A horror known to every culture in every age, breast cancer has been responsible for the deaths of 25 million women throughout history. An Egyptian physician writing 3,500 years ago concluded that there was no treatment for the disease. Later surgeons recommended excising the tumor or, in extreme cases, the entire breast. This was the treatment advocated by the court physician to sixth-century Byzantine empress Theodora, the wife of Justinian, though she chose to die in pain rather than lose her breast. Only in the past few decades has treatment advanced beyond disfiguring surgery.
