My First Male Mammogram male mammo

Much attention has been paid to how the BRCA mutation increases women’s risk of breast and ovarian cancer, but an essential part of the conversation is missing: men.
The person who collects my contact and insurance information at the local breast health center seems vaguely apologetic when she tells me that the main waiting room is for women only. She directs me back to the reception area, where I take a seat again among a handful of other men, most of whom are presumably there waiting for wives or other female significant others. I grab a bottle of water from the “patients only” fridge, open my book back up, and bide my time until my name is called.

I am here for my mammogram.

5 Reasons Radiation Treatment has Never Been Safer (Op-Ed)

elekta_linear_accelerator

 

Dr. Edward Soffen is a board-certified radiation oncologist and medical director of the Radiation Oncology Department at CentraState Medical Center’s Statesir Cancer Center in Freehold, New Jersey. He contributed this article to Live Science’s Expert Voices: Op-Ed & Insights. 

As a radiation oncologist, my goal is to use radiation as an extremely powerful and potent tool to eradicate cancer tumors in the body: These techniques save and extend patients’ lives every day.

Historically, radiation treatments have been challenged by the damage they cause healthy tissue surrounding a tumor, but new technologies are now slashing those risks.

What is breast cancer? What causes breast cancer?

What is Breast Cancer 37136-breast-cancerBreast cancer is a kind of cancer that develops from breast cells. Breast cancer usually starts off in the inner lining of milk ducts or the lobules that supply them with milk. A malignant tumor can spread to other parts of the body. A breast cancer that started off in the lobules is known as lobular carcinoma, while one that developed from the ducts is called ductal carcinoma.

The vast majority of breast cancer cases occur in females. This article focuses on breast cancer in women.

Breast cancer is the most common invasive cancer in females worldwide. It accounts for 16% of all female cancers and 22.9% of invasive cancers in women. 18.2% of all cancer deaths worldwide, including both males and females, are from breast cancer.

Warning Signs of Breast Cancer

What are breast changes?

Many breast changes are changes in how your breast or nipple looks or feels. You may notice a lump or firmness in your breast or under your arm. Or perhaps the size or shape of your breast has changed. Your nipple may be pointing or facing inward (inverted) or feeling tender. The skin on your breast, areola, or nipple may be scaly, red, or swollen. You may have nipple discharge, which is an abnormal fluid coming from the nipple.

If you have these or other breast changes, talk with your health care provider to get these changes checked as soon as possible.

Just the words “breast cancer” can set women’s fears churning. No one needs myths and half-truths to amp up that distress. Below, experts deconstruct commons myths, offering facts that may ease your fears—or at least help you better understand where to focus concerns. Myth: “Breast cancer is one disease.”Truth: There are different types of breast cancer, each with its own cause and behavior, says Sara Hurvitz, MD, Director of the Hematology/Oncology Breast Cancer Program at UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center. As types become better understood, treatments will likely become more specific, targeting each type of cancer.

Top Tips to Decrease Your Breast Cancer Risk

Breast cancer is probably one of the most feared diagnosis a woman can get. The mere mention of it conjures up images of death, despair, or at best, disfigurement.

According to breastcancer.org, one in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime, and nearly 40,000 women lose their lives to the disease each year.

With such odds stacked against you, what, if anything, can you do to prevent becoming a statistic? In truth, there are many measures you can take—each of which will help decrease your risk.

It’s important to realize that less than 10 percent of all breast cancer cases are thought to be related to genetic risk factors. The remainder—90 percent—appear to be triggered by environmental factors.

Metastatic breast cancer – One of the many types of Breast Cancer

Metastatic breast cancer occurs when cancer cells spread to another part of the body. Breast cancer can be metastatic at the time of diagnosis, or following treatment. Cancer cells can travel through the bloodstream and spread to other organs and parts of the body.

The most common sites of metastases are the breast or area where the breast used to be, the chest wall, the lymph nodes, the bones, the lungs or around the lungs, the liver or the brain. If you have been treated for breast cancer and now have cancer cells in any of these areas, it is most likely breast cancer that has spread.

Metastatic breast cancer is different to recurrent breast cancer. Recurrent breast cancer is cancer that returns to the same part of the same breast after treatment, rather than to other parts of the body. When cancer develops in the second breast, it is almost always a new cancer, not a recurrence.
