Breast cancer, Breast Diagnosis
a Complimentary Approach

Breast cancer is a cancer that starts in the tissues of the breast. There are two main types of breast cancer:

•Ductal carcinoma starts in the tubes (ducts) that move milk from the breast to the nipple. Most breast cancers are of this type.

•Lobular carcinoma starts in the parts of the breast, called lobules, that produce milk.

In rare cases, breast cancer can start in other areas of the breast.

Breast cancer may be invasive or noninvasive. Invasive means it has spread from the milk duct or lobule to other tissues in the breast. Noninvasive means it has not yet invaded other breast tissue. Noninvasive breast cancer is called "in situ."

•Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), or intraductal carcinoma, is breast cancer in the lining of the milk ducts that has not yet invaded nearby tissues. It may progress to invasive cancer if untreated.

•Lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) is a marker for an increased risk of invasive cancer in the same or both breasts.

 

 

Breast Cancer Statistics World wide

Breast Cancer Statistics WorldwideIn 2010, nearly 1.5 million people were told “you have breast cancer”Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide. It is also the principle cause of death from cancer among women globally.

The UK and USA have one of the highest incidence rates worldwide (together with the rest of North America and Australia/New Zealand), making these countries a priority for breast cancer awareness. View the map below to see how your country is impacted by breast cancer (pink being the highest per capita):

The most common breast cancer statistic you have probably heard is that “1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.” What it should really read is “If everyone lived beyond the age of 70, 1 in 8 of those women would get or have had breast cancer.” This statistic is based on everyone in the population living beyond the age of 70. Since your breast cancer risk increases as you age, your lifetime risk changes depending on your age:

Age 20-29: 1 in 2,000
Age 30-39: 1 in 229
Age 40-49: 1 in 68
Age 50-59: 1 in 37
Age 60-69: 1 in 26
Ever: 1 in 8

If You Want Breast Cancer, Get a Mammogram

An Alterative

Dear Lynne and Barry

Well , I know I always said that I wouldn’t and I haven’t in the past – but two weeks ago I went and had a mammogram:( For no reason, just to check – I’m sure you understand.)

In the intervening weeks I received and used the Breast Angel. This cool little unit that “sees” right through the breast, illuminating the veins and giving a good idea of the “inner Terrain”.
I used it and gave myself a thorough check! Nothing looked out of place. What a comfort :)

Answering the phone on Monday morning and a voice said in a reassuring tone “HI, this is J from the Breast Clinic.” Me , a little confused “Hi thank you but I have already been for my appointment”
“ Yes that’s why I am calling, we would like to come in and recheck one or two things. We have an appointment available on Wednesday or Thursday, which one would you like?”
Good grief, they are calling me back and want me to have an appointment in two days time! My heart sank! My inner being trembled.

Roll on appointment day. It is amazing how things become so beautiful - the morning was clear – the flowers smelt so strongly the gentle breeze was welcome……. You get the idea that I was stressed!
First the repeat (two) mammogram to check on the couple of objects identified – just the right side. Then the ultrasound, really lovely nurses and a lovely woman doctor. Mmmmm lets just be sure – back for a third mammogram with a result that all was well.

My thanks to those involved for their care and sensitivity.
The result of this experience is to give me more confidence in my newly acquired Breast Angel and its penetrating light. This will be my ‘must use’ piece of equipment every month. I never really felt I got the hang of self breast exams .I’m not sure if that was because of a dysfunctional memory or the disconcerting fact that my breasts felt as though they had changed so much in the intervening month. Now I have an inexpensive, easy to use tool that will quickly give me a deeper level of reassurance.

Thanks Guys

The Breast Angel

The Ultimate Self Examination Tool?

Most women know that they should check for lumps that are out of the ordinary.

However there are other changes to your breasts that you should look out for as well.

These includes:

  • 1) A change in the size or shape of your breast
  • 2) A change in the skin – particularly dimpling or puckering
  • 3)Breast pain that does not go away after a period
  • 4)A change in the appearance of the nipple or a discharge from the nipple
  • 5) If you notice any changes you should ask your doctor about them as soon as possible. They may well be harmless but your doctor will be able to reassure you
  • 6) Lumpy areas or thickening of the breast tissue

Healthy Breast Tissue

BreastAngel is not a substitute for a mammography, but it is a useful resource. "It works by shining a light through breast tissue," "The light illuminates the red blood cells so that they appear black. Practically, it means you can see all the blood vessels in the breast clearly, like a road map."

When a tumour takes hold in the breast, a new blood vessel grows to feed it. The Breastangel would show that up as a dark patch long before you could feel it as a lump through the skin." When the light hits a blood vessel in your breast it is absorbed by haemoglobin. This makes the veins in your breast appear as dark lines.

Most new lumps or other breast changes are not serious and can be easily treated if necessary. Should they prove to be cancer then there is a very good chance of successful treatment. And the earlier any problems are found, the better the chances. That is why it is important to be “breast aware” and to be on the look out for any changes.

Using the latest medical technology of Trans- Dermal Illumination, BreastAngel works by shining a powerful light through dense tissue so that you may see inside inside your breasts. Harmless fibroid cysts will allow light to flow through but potential abnormalities will block the lightbeam, revealing dark spots. Such findings call for further evaluation by your doctor.

Malignant lumps have an increased blood supply to feed them so any dense areas may indicate an abnormality. Fluid filled cysts, however, will not absorb the light.

" Critics would argue that users may worry unnecessarily,and that the use of these devises encourage anxiety and needless examinations."and "It could cause unnecessary distress if 'shadows' were misinterpreted."

A tumour could show up as a dark spot or area attached to a blood vessel. You don't need to remember how your breast looks each month; just to watch out for dark patches attached to blood vessels.

Breast Angel is a simple and easy to use product.

"I don't think I know any doctors who are good at self-examination, let alone patients. And if you can see something before you can even feel a lump, that has to be a good thing. The light may be anxiety-provoking for a very few, but for most it is reassuring. So far, women do not seem to be over-relying on this Technology, with many using it as an additional tool in their monthly checks."
Dr. Burnett,

Breast Angel is a new health and well being product for women. It helps women notice any changes in their breasts over time. With Breast Angel you get a view of your breasts. Breast Angel shines a powerful light through the breast tissue so that you can see some of the details inside. That way you can get to know what’s normal for you, spot any changes and hopefully feel more confident that you’re looking after your body the way you’d like to.

How to use the Breast Angel

Breast Angel is a simple and easy to use product. However we do strongly recommend that you take some time to read through these instructions and keep them for future reference. Important things to remember are:
* Charge your Breast Angel before you use it
* Make the room as dark as possible
* Hold Breast Angel under one of your breasts and look down
* Keep your Breast Angel pressed tightly against your skin
* Use a mirror so you can see more
* Check all areas – including under arms and high on the chest What you will see with breast care equipment? You will see veins and other blood vessels as dark lines in your breast. These are totally normal. Around the nipple you may see a circle of small dots – these are part of your mammary glands. These are also totally normal.

Great for home or Clinics

The manufacturer suggests that the BreastAngel is not a substitute for a professional Medical screening, the device could be a potentially lifesaving device, as it could be used as a monitoring and early warning gadget at home. Women are advised to use their hands to feel their breasts for lumps in the shower, but with this light they can actually see what is going on and see changes through time. In the case she finds something wrong or unusual, they can go to the doctor for an expert opinion. Better to be safe than sorry.
