How to Detect Breast Cancer at Early Stage

 ¾ patients with breast cancer are known not in a lethal or dangerous stage. It means that most of them have been aware with the risk of this illness. That is why; the doctors always remind all women and also men to do early detection. They must have the breast check-up at least once in a year. If you want to, you can even do it once a month.

If you found any lumps in the breast, you must tell your doctor about it. It is especially if the lump comes with the pain or uncomfortable feeling. Usually, it can feel pain when you are touching it or when you are too tired.

However, you need to know that not all lumps are a sign of cancer. At some stages or conditions, a breast can be thicker. Also, the breast can feel inflamed before a woman experiences the menstruation. In some conditions, too many hormones can also trigger breast lumps. It commonly happens in teenage. However, the doctors usually recommend a small surgery to lift those lumps.

You must know that some breast issues can trigger lumps or tumors. The worse thing is that it can turn into cancer conditions. The non-cancer growth is included as the breast tissue thickened which is producing breast milk. To detect breast cancer, X-Ray treatment can be done. This technique is commonly used to have early detection for several illnesses, including breast cancer.

It is a good start to cure tumors, especially at its early stage. We can say that X-Ray is beneficial to reduce the risk of breast cancer and mortality. Besides the X-Ray, mammography is also essential for early detection. The doctor recommends it for women at the age of 40 or more. They should do it every year. However, mammography could not differentiate benign and malignant tumors. The only way to know more about it is through a biopsy. It is a small operation or surgery by lifting a small amount of the body’s tissue or tumors. It will be checked under the microscope to detect the cancer cell inside a human’s body.

If a cancer cell is detected in your breast, the doctor will then diagnose whether those cells are benign or malignant. In addition, they will also check about the possibility of whether cancer has spread or not. If the cancer cells have spread, it is called the metastases of the cell. The common metastases usually happen in the lymph nodes under the arm.

The presence or absence of this cancer cell in the lymph node will help a doctor to determine how far or severe cancer is. If it is needed, a doctor can decide to lift the lymph node under the arm. This kind of action can trigger another condition, such as inflammation.

In addition, nowadays there is a new procedure which is called the sentinel lymph node biopsy. It is a less risky method to identify and erase the cancer cell sentinel lymph node. If the cancer cell has not spread to the chest, but the sentinel knot contains cancer cells, a patient can have wider surgery.
