Breast Cancer

Breast cancer occurs when breast cells develop abnormally and grow out of control forming a malignant (cancerous) tumour. It is possible for cancer cells to spread (metastasise) from the breast to other parts of the body via the lymphatic system and by direct entry into the blood vessels. Once there, they can form "secondary" cancers.

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

Estimated new cases and deaths from breast cancer in the United States in 2010:
New cases: 207,090 (female); 1,970 (male)
Deaths: 39,840 (female); 390 (male)

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women today (after lung cancer) and is the most common cancer among women, excluding non melanoma skin cancers. According to the American Cancer Society, about 1.3 million women will be diagnosed with breast cancer annually worldwide about 465,000 will die from the disease. Breast cancer death rates have been dropping steadily since 1990, according to the Society, because of earlier detection and better treatments. About 40,910 breast cancer deaths are expected in 2007.

According to the American Cancer Society, in general, breast cancer rates have risen about 30% in the past 25 years in western countries, due in part to increased screening which detects the cancer in earlier stages. In the United States, though, breast cancer rates decreased by 10% between 2000-2004, due in part to a reduction in the use of hormone replacement therapy. Although breast cancer rates are rising in many western countries, deaths from the disease have decreased in some countries as a result of improved screening and treatment.

The lifetime probability of developing breast cancer in developed countries is about 4.8%, according to the American Cancer Society (the probability is about 13% for any type of cancer). In developing countries, the lifetime probability of developing breast cancer is about 1.8%.

Incidence By Age

This risk model is based on population averages. Each woman's breast cancer risk may be higher or lower, depending upon a several factors, including family history, genetics, age of menstruation, and other factors that have not yet been identified.

While breast cancer is less common at a young age (i.e., in their thirties), younger women tend to have more aggressive breast cancers than older women, which may explain why survival rates are lower among younger women.

Tips for Self Examination

A BSE can help women detect cysts or other benign (noncancerous) breast problems between checkups. It can also help some women detect breast cancer ,It's easy to perform a breast self-examination, and it only takes a few minutes.

The Breast-light Scanner

Great for home or Clinics

The Breast light Scanner is a product that allows you to see inside your breasts.
It works by shining a powerful White light through the breast tissue.

Helps Home Self Exams

A powerful light source with a bright-white beam, shown to be effective in detecting unusual Breast anomalies– could be the answer to anyone worried about the effectiveness of self-examination

The Breast light Scanner, a device produced in China, was developed to help women and used in clinics to spot suspicious breast lumps in the privacy of the home. By shining a very bright light light of specific frequencies that best penetrates breast tissue, it should be possible to locate darker, and therefore denser spots for further review by a physician.

Breast light Scanner can be used by women of all ages, particularly menopausal or post-menopausal women when the density of the breast tissue has changed. It is also useful for women with fibrous breasts that always feel lumpy. The Breast light Scanner will distinguish between normal breast tissue and areas where blood vessels are present that could indicate a potential abnormality.

When one feels a lump in the breast, there is really no virtual worry because most lumps are benign which means that they are not cancerous. In fact, benign breast tumors are abnormal growths but do not really pose threats because they do not spread outside of the breast. However, some benign lumps increase the risk in having breast cancer

Then there are lumps that are not really tumors at all which are often caused by fibrocystic changes — cysts are fluid-filled sacs while fibrosis is the formation of scar-like tissue. These changes can cause swelling of the breasts resulting to being lumpy and sometimes a fluid discharge from the nipples. Source

 

With all aspects of breast awareness the important thing is to look out for any changes.

Breast light Scanner is designed to give the maximum light transmission through the breast tissue.

These units may be ideal for the thousands of women who are uncomfortable about performing monthly self breast checks.

Mammograms cause breast cancer (and other cancer facts you probably never knew)

Breast light Scanners are not a substitute for a mammography, but it is a useful resource. "It works by shining a light through breast tissue," "The White 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."

All women are at risk for developing breast cancer. The older a woman is, the greater her chances of developing breast cancer. Approximately 77% of breast cancer cases occur in women over 50 years of age.

"When a tumour takes hold in the breast, a new blood vessel grows to feed it. The Breast light 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.

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."

"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."
