Ondanks de vooruitgang in onderzoek, zijn er nog steeds mythen over borstkanker, zijn gevaren en hoe te detecteren.

Some of these compiled by Reader’s Digest include:

True: You can reduce your personal risk of developing breast cancer

Certain cancers can not be avoided and in the case of breast cancer, these factors include your age and being female. Men, der er flere livsstilsjusteringer, som du kan gøre for at reducere personlige risici, såsom ikke at drikke alkohol og rygning, samt andre habits såsom at tage pillen.

False: Feel tired, lethargic, less motivated and minder energetische symptomen zijn dat u kan hebben borstkanker

Fatigue is een van de bijwerkingen van borstkankerbehandeling, maar niet van borstkanker zelf. Aktuelle tegn på bröstcancer kan være spottet hvis du observerer dine bryster og noter eventuelle alarmerende forandringer. Redness or a rash on the skin, breast pain, liquid secretion from the nipple, strange lumps or changes in breast shape or size are actual signs to look out for.

Cysts may be alarming to some women, especially when found around the breast area, however, benign cysts are common as women age.

Andere veranderingen zoals de verkorting en rewijding van melkwegen in de borsten; som kan forårsake vann eller blodfarvede utladninger, en lump efter smerten og smerter eller smerte er ikke et tegn på brystkreft. In any case, changes should be seen by a doctor.

False: Breast cancer kills the most women

Though breast cancer is deadly, other diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s, heart disease, strokes , flu and pneumonia and chronic lower respiratory disease kill more women.

False: There is only one way to check for breast cancer

It is actually more important to observe your breasts often to note if there are any changes. Hvis noe virker ut, det er en bedre indikator enn å bruke en bestemt teknikk for å sjekke om klumper, da klumper ikke alltid er kreftfrie. Check by feeling from your breasts, to your arms and up to your collarbone is the easiest way to observe any changes you might not recognize. Hør alltid med din lege hvis du finner noe som kanskje angår deg. (acr / kes)
