Un día me fui a hacer estudios de rutina, la médica ecógrafa ve una manchita en mi mama derecha, sugiere punción mientras me tranquiliza: hay que ocuparse, no preocuparse. Le tomo la palabra y me tranquilizo, ya que días después al retirar los estudios, en la mamografía (+)
No sé veía nada extraño. Voy, confiada, a la punción. La especialista, optimista, me dice: lo bueno es que si "es" es ínfimo, se cura rápido. Se me hizo un nudo. No sabía qué pensar. En mi mente no cabía semejante posibilidad (+)
Un mes después, el 23 de febrero de 2017 fui a buscar el resultado. Abrí el sobre y su contenido sentenciaba: carcinoma ductal invasivo. Al lado de mi nombre y datos personales. Sentí que caía en un abismo. Creo que no me desmayé porque estaba con mi hija (+)

A 34 yr old single lady visited my clinic back in march 2018. She had recently got engaged back then and was planning to get married in the next few months. It was a breast lump that brought her to my clinic. It was clinically a breast cancer, and proven so by imaging and
core Biopsy. I still remember the disbelief on her face and in her eyes. How could it happen to her? She was in the midst of preparations for her big day that she had waited for so long and now this? "But its curable right? Whats the disease stage?" She asked. She then

Can bras cause breast cancer?

Unless people experience breast cancer or are close to someone who does, they might not be able to separate myth from fact when it comes to #breastcancer.

So let's talk about the myths, causes and symptoms.

#BreastCancerAwarenessMonth
MYTH 1: If I don’t have a family history of breast cancer, I won’t get it.

FACT: Most people diagnosed with breast cancer have no known family history.
Many people think of breast cancer as an inherited disease. But only about 5–10% of breast cancers are believed to be hereditary, meaning they’re caused by abnormal changes (or mutations) in certain genes passed from parent to child.

Grace was just washing up after exercise class; planning to meet her friends for the party later that night.

As she soaped herself, her mind was busy on other things. #BeatingBreastCancer 💞

She rubbed under her right breast and under her armpit.
As she circled the breast again, she felt something. She paused, letting the water rinse off the soap.

And pressed her breast - yes, there it was again.

Welcome to Day2 of our #BeatingBreastCancer series.
Today - What’s a #Mammogram?
#thread
Simply, it’s an X-Ray of the breasts used to detect changes in the breast that may indicate cancer.
It’s used as a screening method in some countries... 1/#BreastCancerAwarenessMonth 💞
- that means - before a woman develops ANY signs of cancer, the X-Ray can find breast changes suggesting #BreastCancer.
In the UK, it’s given every 3 years after a woman is 50y till she is 70y.
#BreastCancerAwarnessMonth 💞
#BeatingBreastCancer
Nigeria has no formal program.

There are some other women for whom a #Mammogram is useful for screening outside the age limits and regardless of age, all women are encouraged to continue performing regular self breast examination (BSE) 3/.
