Do I have significantly dense breasts on my mammogram? 2. Shouldn’t I have a 3D mammogram? 3. What is my mammogram “BI-RADS density score?” 4. Should I see a breast surgeon to discuss this? What is mammographic breast density? Breast density is a term used to describe how much breast tissue is made up of glands and supportive tissue. Dense breasts have more of this “thicker” tissue, which appears white on mammograms. Mammograms in women with very dense breasts can be more challenging to interpret by breast radiologists. Up to 40 percent of women have significantly dense breasts. Why does breast density matter? We have learned over time that women with dense breasts have a higher risk of developing breast cancer in their lifetime. Studies have yet to narrow down exactly how much of an increased risk, but the best “calculator” is the BCSC Calculator outlined in detail below. Dense breasts also make it more difficult for radiologists to see a small breast cancer because these growths can be overshadowed by the dense or white appearing tissue on a mammogram. So dense breasts pose a “double-whammy” of increased risk and decreased ability to find breast cancers on mammograms. The take-home message for those with dense breasts is to get regular mammograms, and ask for 3D mammograms if they are available to you. This best applies to those who have high BI-RADS Density scores of 3 and 4 (see below). What is my “BI-RADS” Density Score on my mammogram report? This scoring system is the radiologist’s estimate of breast density. The BI-RADS scores for low density are 1 and 2. High density are 3 and 4. The images below are examples of low to high density from left to right. The “terms” used to describe density in the figure below correspond to the BI-RADS scores 1 – 4. LOWER DENSITY terms used on every mammogram report: BI-RADS 1 or “A” or “Almost Entirely Fatty Tissue” BI-RADS 2 or “B” or “Scattered Fibroglandular Tissue” HIGHER DENSITY terms used on every mammogram report: BI-RADS 3 or “C” or “Heterogeneously Dense” BI-RADS 4 or “D” or “Extremely Dense” Should I see a breast surgeon for density? Seeing a breast surgeon is not generally necessary just for dense breasts. However, if you have multiple other “high risk” factors, or are at risk for carrying the BRCA mutation, ask for a breast surgeon consultation. Calculate your risk for breast cancer The new, online Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium (BCSC) Risk Calculator (link on our website) calculates your 5-year and 10-year risk of developing invasive breast cancer. It is the only “risk calculator” that includes breast density as a risk factor. It is designed for physicians, but you are free to use it also. We suggest you take a printout of “your calculated risk” to your physician to engage them in a discussion about your personal risk for developing breast cancer. Share this calculator with your physician in case they aren’t aware of this new tool. To calculate your breast cancer risk online you will need a copy of your most recent mammogram report from your physician to complete the questions. Most radiologists will list a “BI-RADS” breast density score (1,2,3, or 4) or a description of the level of density as described above. Enter this “level” into the calculator in addition to the other information that is requested. The Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium (BCSC) is a group of organizations that work together to advance breast cancer research. Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound (ABUS) Whole breast ultrasound was designed to screen women with dense breasts to improve the chance of finding a cancer that might be missed by mammography. It is not a replacement for mammograms. Mammograms are still essential to screen women with dense breasts. This type of ultrasound is designed to be used in addition to annual mammograms. When ABUS is added to mammographic screening, breast cancer detection can be improved by up to 50 percent. The GE Healthcare Invenia ABUS system is the first FDA-approved device and is becoming more widely available in the community. Click (here) to find a facility near you that offers this ABUS service.

We teach you how a simple ultrasound of your axillary lymph nodes can tell you more about your breast cancer and expand your treatment options. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ __ Questions for your Breast Surgeon: 1. Will you ultrasound my axillary lymph nodes today? 2. If not, will you order an axillary ultrasound by a radiologist? 3. Would my treatment change if we found cancer in my axillary nodes? 4. What are the benefits of Neoadjuvant Chemo? 5. Why is Neoadjuvant Chemo recommended more now? 6. Why ultrasound my axillary lymph nodes before surgery? At diagnosis, one third of patients already have cancer in the lymph nodes under their arm (axilla). When the “Axillary Lymph Nodes” are involved with breast cancer your cancer is more threatening one. This information can dramatically change your treatment options. Studies have shown that “positive” axillary lymph nodes are commonly missed by your breast surgeon’s physical examination. A 5-minute ultrasound of your axilla can more accurately find cancer in these nodes. A pre-operative axillary ultrasound is a “cutting edge” advance in breast cancer care. Make sure to ask your breast surgeon about an axillary ultrasound when they are examining you. Many large cancer centers routinely utilize pre-operative axillary ultrasounds. How can this change my treatment plan? If an obviously abnormal node is found before surgery, then you have a more serious cancer. If appropriate, an ultrasound guided needle biopsy can be performed to confirm the node is involved with cancer. If you have cancer in your nodes, you will likely require chemotherapy either before (neoadjuvant chemotherapy) or after surgery (adjuvant chemotherapy). Regardless of the findings of an axillary ultrasound, a surgical evaluation of your axillary lymph nodes will be needed when you undergo a definitive breast cancer surgery. The surgical procedures used today for lymph nodes are a “sentinel node biopsy” or an “axillary dissection.” What are the benefits of knowing you have involved nodes? Knowing you have “node positive” breast cancer before surgery can empower your breast cancer team to search for more sophisticated treatment options. A simple axillary ultrasound for early stage breast cancer identifies more “node positive” patients. If you are found early in your journey to have node positive breast cancer, more pre-operative treatment options may be considered. We list some of the treatment benefits below. Multidisciplinary Cancer Team Lymph node “positive” breast cancer requires a more sophisticated treatment approach. An axillary ultrasound can help determine if you would benefit from a “multidisciplinary team” approach early on in your care, before surgery. Ask your breast specialists to present your unique cancer situation to their team so you will benefit from new ideas and cutting-edge treatment advances. Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy When you know you have involved lymph nodes at diagnosis, you likely will be offered chemotherapy at some point in your treatment. There can be distinct advantages to having chemotherapy before surgery, rather than afterwards. This is known as neoadjuvant chemotherapy. This complex decision is worth discussing with your breast surgeon. Breast surgeons choose the initial direction of your entire breast cancer treatment plan. An axillary ultrasound can better identify if you are a candidate for neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Take our lesson on “Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy” to learn more about the potential benefits of this treatment approach.

WARNING WOMEN _ NEVER IGNORE THESE 7 SIGNS OF CERVICAL CANCER. https://youtu.be/k7gapbfemrY ................................... Cervical cancer is a kind of cancer, which is produced by HPV, (human papillomavirus) that is highly contagious. The HPV is a sexually transferred virus, which has more than 100 varieties. Some of the changes can cause cervical cancer, which is one of the dangerous types, of gynecological cancer. The HPV can pass, on its own, if the immune system is powerful enough, to fight it, however, it can sometimes, produce abnormal cell growth, which can turn into cervical malignancy. 7 SIGNS OF CERVICAL CANCER. Although cervical cancer, does not offer, obvious symptoms, like breast cancer, it can still be caught early, if you know what signals to look for. 7. UNUSUAL DISCHARGE. Unusual discharge, is a typical symptom of this kind, of cancer because once, cancer starts growing inside, the cervix, the cells of the uterine lining, start emitting watery discharge. 6. WARTS. “The presence of small warts, (external or internal) works as a red flag, for some diseases such as HPV, which considerably improves, the chances of cervical cancer in women.” 5. PAIN OR BLEEDING. Pelvic pain and bleeding are also typical marks of cervical cancer, because of the walls of the cervix, dry out and even crack, due to the irregular cell growth. Rectal or bladder bleeding, can also happen, though in the more excellent stages. Any bleeding outside your menstrual period requires urgent medical attention. 4. anemia. Anemia often brings, cervical cancer because, it is caused by unnecessary bleeding, another sign of this cancer. If your eating habits are identical, but you constantly feel tired, or your heartbeat increases,, even at the slightest effort, you should get investigated for anemia, and the idea behind it. 3. URINARY PROBLEMS. 2. CONTINUOUS PAIN IN THE LEGS, HIPS OR BACK. 1. WEIGHT LOSS. Note: It is very necessary, to have in mind, that these signs, can also be produced by different conditions. However, reporting them to your gynecologist is vital for new detection. There are various risk factors, that can lead to getting, an HPV infection, found in both men, and women. THE BEST-KNOWN RISK FACTORS, FOR CERVICAL CANCER, ARE: 1. Smoking, or inhaling second-hand smoke. 2. Having multiple sexual partners. 3. Having unprotected sex. 4. Having low immunity. .........................

Calling all women with dense breasts or implants: Your small, curable cancers are often missed by mammography. Following Dr. Papanicolaou’s 30-year struggle to gain acceptance of the Pap smear for detection of cervical cancer, Dr. Kelly is working to do the same for an automated ultrasound technology that finds cancers when they are very small and very curable. Dr. Kevin Kelly is passionate and dedicated to the early detection of breast cancer. His goal is to educate women about the importance of understanding their breast type so they can make informed decisions about their screening options. Kevin is the Medical Director of The Breast Ultrasound Center in Pasadena, CA, and has been in private practice as a diagnostic radiologist for 34 years. Dr. Kelly is one of this country’s leading authorities on using ultrasound to detect cancers in women with dense breast tissue and/or implants. Since 1993, he has been conducting clinical research on the discovery and characterization of breast cancer by ultrasound, and in 1997 began his journey to develop SonoCiné AWBUS (Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound). Launched in 2000, SonoCiné Inc. has been instrumental in identifying numerous very small cancers that were not detected by mammography, thus saving many lives and avoiding unnecessary chemotherapy treatments in many women.

Breast imaging generally refers to mammograms, breast ultrasounds, and breast MRIs. Mammograms are most often used to screen women annually for cancer. An ultrasound of the breast is usually performed to determine if a lump or mass is concerning for cancer. Breast MRIs are ordered most frequently for newly diagnosed women to better understand the extent of their cancer before surgery. MRIs are also used annually to screen women felt to be at “high risk” for developing breast cancer in their lifetime. Interpreting these studies is difficult to do really well. It is not uncommon for a breast cancer to be overlooked on your imaging, thus delaying a diagnosis of cancer for months or years. That is why you should seek a radiologist who specializes in breast imaging. Under their guidance, cancers may be detected earlier and fewer biopsies of non-cancerous areas may be recommended. If possible, seek your breast imaging at more specialized breast imaging centers. When should I start getting mammograms every year? We still recommend beginning annual, screening mammography at the age of 40. Recent national guidelines recommend starting later at 45 or 50 years old. This has generated an intense discussion and debate amongst patient advocacy groups and the world of medicine. Make sure to take our specific lesson “When should I start getting mammograms?” We address the advantages and disadvantages of breast screening so you can make an informed decision with your physicians about when to begin mammographic screening. What are the "Cutting-edge Advances" in breast imaging? Breast imaging technology is rapidly improving. You might hear about these advances occasionally from your friends or on the news. We are the first to organize all of these cutting-edge technologies into one, patient-friendly website. We cover breast imaging topics such as: *Should I have a 3D mammogram? *Would I benefit from a breast MRI? *Does my radiologist specialize in breast imaging? *Do I have dense breasts? What is my BI-RADS density score? *Am I at high risk for developing breast cancer? *What is “Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound” and breast density? Should I ask for copies of my breast imaging reports? All of your medical records belong to you. If you’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer, you need to read your reports to better understand your unique cancer. This allows you to engage your breast surgeon and make sure something is not missed or overlooked. You will likely forget the details about your cancer, treatment, and imaging as the years pass. We recommend you create a folder and gather all of your cancer information. You will get better quality care from future physicians when you can share with them the specifics of your breast cancer. Register for our newsletter and “cutting-edge” questions. Sign-up for our video-based breast health updates (here). Once registered, we’ll immediately email you our complete list of “cutting-edge” questions for your breast surgeon, medical oncologist, and radiation oncologist.

My mammogram missed my breast cancer: . Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNauy_DScacuXb2qo1wr-9w?sub_confirmation=1 Rosanna Silber couldn’t shake the thought from her head: “I have cancer,” she said to herself, while traveling in Sweden in 2016. “I just had this gut feeling,” says the now-32-year-old mom-to-be and nurse practitioner from Chelsea. A few weeks prior, she felt a pea-sized lump in her breast, which her gynecologist believed was just a cyst. Silber insisted on getting a mammogram, typically considered the gold standard for catching breast cancer. The screening came back clear: no cancer. “I was relieved, but it still didn’t feel right,” she says. And so she fought for additional testing, which eventually confirmed her suspicion. Mammograms often detect breast cancer, and catching it early helps patients survive the illness and undergo less-complicated treatment. But they’re not perfect: Mammograms miss about 15 percent of all breast-cancer cases, according to a 2015 report published in the journal Breast Cancer Research and Treatment. Experts say that discrepancy is often the result of dense breast tissue, a common condition that affects about 40 percent of women over the age of 40. In mammography, the dense tissue shows up white — the same color as cancerous masses — making detection difficult. “It’s like trying to see a polar bear in a snowstorm,” says Dr. Elisa Port, director of the Dubin Breast Center at Mount Sinai and an investigator with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Women with dense breast tissue are at a slightly higher risk for getting breast cancer. Alone, it’s not enough to require yearly screenings before the age of 40, doctors say. But if additional risk factors are present — say, a direct family member has been diagnosed with breast cancer — it’s imperative to consider additional screening, such as an ultrasound or an MRI, with a medical professional. Last year, New York State enacted a law mandating that insurance cover such supplemental screening for women with dense breast tissue. Measures like these are encouraging to patients such as Alexea Gaffney, a Long Island doctor currently undergoing treatment for stage III breast cancer that both an ultrasound and mammogram missed. “It’s disheartening that so many women are dealing with the same thing,” says Gaffney, 37, who has since met other women like her through groups such as the Breasties, which connects young women with breast and ovarian cancer. “We put our faith in these tests.” Here, four women whose mammograms missed their cancers share their stories. She got cancer while pregnant After a 2016 mammogram failed to show cancer, nurse practitioner Rosanna Silber used her gut feeling as a “diagnostic tool.” Since she could clearly feel the lump, her mother had the disease and she learned from the mammogram she had dense breasts, she asked her doctor for additional screening, including an ultrasound and a biopsy. In September 2016, she was diagnosed with stage I breast cancer. Even though she was high risk, Silber was surprised by the turn of events. “I never thought I #mammogram, #missed, #breast cancer

Does mammography improve your breast cancer survival chances? Liked the video? Consider supporting us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/quickfix Doctors recommend mammography screening and for women over 40 a quick x-rays screening is a must every 2-3 years. But if mammography is the right path then why aren’t the numbers of women surviving breast cancer rising? Is this the only detection method? How healthy is diagnostic mammography? Is it positive or false? How can women escape breast cancer? 🔥 Breast cancer is the third biggest killer cancer and the most common cancer when it comes to women. Therefore, the question is can we survive breast cancer? Can we find it, catch it in time so our survival chance is bigger? Is catching breast cancer early helping to escape death? A 25 years long Canadian study with nearly 90.000 women participants aged 40 to 59 finds no reduction in the mortality rate because of breast cancer between the control group that was receiving physical exams and the group that was having mammography screening and physicals. Beside, mammograms are not always right. Overdiagnosis, false positive and false negative are either pushing healthy women for more radiation or keeping already sick women from getting treatment they need. In the USA 49 % of women will receive false positive results after ten rounds of mammography screening. And while mammograms might seem to help us improve our health, the truth is that even if mammogram catches breast cancer, the treatment and treatment results will be pretty much the same for 87-97 % of women. Meaning that either cancer is so aggressive no early detection can help, or that even if would discover it later, we would survive anyway. So, is mammogram really the best tool if we want to catch and survive breast cancer? Is it improving our health or does it have a massive impact on our physical and mental health? Maybe we should focus on other detection methods to improve survival rates or we should learn how we can escape it all together? There are some alternative detection methods, but those alternatives don’t really work. Self-examination, MRI and ultrasound are not catching breast cancer any better than mammograms and are in no way improving our health or survival chances. What can and should we do? Should we try to escape mammography screenings and if we do, do we have a bigger chance of escaping breast cancer or at least at surviving it? According to American Institute for Cancer Research and World Cancer Research Fund the best way to escape breast cancer altogether is to maintain a healthy lifestyle and increase survival rates as much as possible.

Fibroadenoma of the breast is a very common condition which we see in lot of women these days. This is mainly because of the imbalance in the hormones. These kind of nodules develop in the breast. So the cancer appear in the breast in multiple forms or they can be single nodules in the breast. Fibroadenoma is so common that every third or fourth woman is suffering from these types of lumps. So these are not related to malignancy or cancerous lumps at all. So if these lumps are felt and moving nicely in the breast, then you should visit a doctor to see that you have any other nodules in the breast, you have any hormonal imbalance, you have any Vitamin D deficiency or nutritional imbalance, we need to check on that. And then we do a test called ultrasound scan of the breast to see if there is any other lumps in the breast. And once we see the number of lumps, or if there is a single lump, we do what is called a s fine needle aspiration of these lumps. There are man reasons that we want to remove these lumps. One, if they are big in size, if they are causing pain or if there is any suspicion or change in the architecture of the fibroadenoma lump itself, we do an ultrasound scan, or if there is pain, we want to remove them for histopathological diagnosis. When we do fine needle aspiration biopsy, if it is definitely fibroadenoma itself and if it is smaller in size, we need not do anything. Normally what we do for these patients is, we supplement them with Vitamin E, and then we also supplement with Vitamin D, if found to be deficient. Also we balance their hormones and check if they have any infection which is going to be treated and this is how we treat fibroadenoma in the breast.

An axillary lymph node Biopsy is surgical procedure to remove lymph nodes from the armpit (underarm). The lymph nodes in the armpit are called axillary lymph nodes (underarm lumps). An axillary lymph node Biopsy is also called axillary dissection, axillary node dissection or axillary lymphadenectomy. Breast Sentinel Biopsy involves removing the first lymph node (or nodes) in the armpit to which cancer cells are likely to spread from the breast. It’s essential that sentinel node biopsy is done by a surgeon who is trained and experienced in this method. Sentinel node biopsy is usually done during breast surgery (Surgery to remove breast cancer). Sometimes it may be performed as a separate procedure. The length of time it takes to do sentinel node biopsy varies for individual women. A lymph node biopsy removes lymph node tissue to be looked at under a microscope for signs of infection or a disease, such as cancer. Other tests may also be used to check the lymph tissue sample, including a culture, genetic tests, or tests to study the body's immune system. Lymph nodes are part of the immune system. They are found in the neck, behind the ears, in the armpits glands, and in the chest, belly, and groin. To remove these lumps, lump node biopsy surgery is used. Lumpectomy or lumpectomy surgery for breast cancer is surgery to remove cancer or other abnormal tissue from your breast. Lumpectomy is also called breast conserving surgery or wide local excision because unlike a mastectomy, only a portion of the breast is removed. Doctors may also refer to Breast cancer lumpectomy as an excisional biopsy. Symptoms of breast lump • you discover a new lump • an area of your breast is noticeably different than the rest • a lump does not go away after menstruation • a lump changes or grows larger • your breast is bruised for no apparent reason • the skin of your breast is red or begins to pucker like an orange peel • you have an inverted nipple (if it was not always inverted) • you notice bloody discharge from the nipple Treatment of breast lump If the lump is found to be breast cancer, treatment can include: • lumpectomy, or removing the lump • mastectomy, which refers to removing your breast tissue • chemotherapy, which uses drugs to fight or destroy the cancer • radiation treatment for breast cancer, a treatment that uses radioactive rays or materials to fight the cancer Breast lump removal is surgery to remove a lump that present breast cancer. Tissue around the lump is also removed. This surgery is called a lumpectomy. When a noncancerous tumor such as a fibroadenoma of the breast is removed, it is often called an excisional breast biopsy, instead of a lumpectomy. There are two types of breast cancer surgery: Breast conserving surgery (also called a lumpectomy (used for breast cancer treatment), quadrantectomy, partial mastectomy, or segmental mastectomy) – in which only the part of the breast containing the cancer is removed. How lymph node biopsy surgery performed The sentinel node is then checked for the presence of cancer cells by a pathologist. If cancer is found, the surgeon may remove additional lymph nodes, either during the same biopsy procedure or during a follow-up surgical procedure. SLNBs may be done on an outpatient basis or may require a short stay in the hospital.

3D mammography for breast cancer screening is now available at the Olson Center for Women’s Health. The conversion to 3D mammography is transforming the process of breast cancer screening and Nebraska Medicine is proud to be one of only a few health care centers in the region offering this new and cutting-edge technology. The 3D mammography screening experience is similar to a traditional mammogram. During a 3D mammography exam, multiple, low-dose images of the breast are acquired at different angles. These images are then used to produce a series of one-millimeter thick slices that can be viewed as a 3D reconstruction of the breast. Research shows breast cancer screening with 3D mammography, when combined with a conventional 2D mammography, has a 40 percent higher invasive cancer detection rate than conventional 2D mammography alone. It also provides a significant reduction in “call back” rates of 20 to 40 percent. “In large studies, it’s been proven that more cancers were found and more cancers on a smaller stage were found — in all levels of density of the breast,” says Cheryl Williams, MD, radiologist. “This is very important. The smaller a tumor is when we find it, the more likely it is that we’ll be able to cure it.” How does it actually work? The system uses high-powered computing to convert digital breast images into a stack of very thin layers, or “slices” – building what is essentially a 3D mammogram. This allows radiologists to examine the breast tissue one layer at a time, without the confusion of overlapping tissue. When the overlapping tissues within the breast are viewed as a 2D, flat image, it can become confusing to radiologists reading the image. This is the leading reason why small breast cancers may be missed and normal tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary call backs. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women, exceeded only by lung cancer. Statistics indicate one in eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her lifetime. The stage at which breast cancer is detected influences a woman’s chance of survival. If detected early, the five-year survival rate is 98 percent. The conversion to 3D imaging will benefit all screening and diagnostic mammography patients and is especially valuable for women receiving a baseline screening, those who have dense breast tissue and/or women with a personal history of breast cancer. “Bottom line, get a mammogram.” Dr. Williams says. “Get it every year after the age of 40. Be consistent. It truly is a life saver.” In addition to the Olson Center location, Nebraska Medicine will be expanding its West Omaha imaging presence at the Village Pointe campus location in the first calendar quarter of 2016. “We are excited to announce Nebraska Medicine will operate 3D mammography screening and diagnostic services in addition to MRI, CT, X-Ray and Ultrasound,” says Charles Lakso, executive director of Diagnostic Services. “The mammography services, combined with needle biopsy, pathology, oncology and surgical services will support a Multidisciplinary Breast Cancer Treatment Center designed to satisfy the needs of our breast patients. The Village Pointe location will provide convenient hours of operation, ample parking and easy access to clinics and ancillary services.” To make an appointment at the Olson Center for Women’s Health, call 402-559-4500.

Watch more Client Videos videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/418228-How-to-Recognize-Breast-Cancer-Symptoms Over the course of a woman's lifetime, she may experience breast changes. While many end up being nothing to worry about, it's important to have any changes that you notice checked by a doctor -- just to be on the safe side. Here are the potential breast cancer symptoms to watch out for. Warning This video does not replace actual medical advice. Always consult your doctor with any questions or concerns. Step 1: Do a monthly self-exam Start performing a monthly self-exam as soon as your breasts are fully developed. Checking yourself regularly is important -- you need to know what your breasts feel like normally so you can recognize any changes. Examine yourself several days after your period ends, when your breasts are least likely to be swollen and tender. If you're no longer having periods, choose a day that's easy to remember, such as the first or last day of the month. Keep in mind that it's not uncommon for breasts to feel lumpy due to benign fibrocystic breast disease, cysts, scar tissue, infections, and other causes that have nothing to do with cancer. Tip For instructions on how to do a breast self-exam properly, go to "Breastcancer.org":http://www.breastcancer.org/. Step 2: Have lumps checked Know what you're feeling for: a lump that feels different from your breast's normal lumpiness, like discovering a pebble in your oatmeal. Though many lumps are benign, anything that feels new or odd should be checked by your doctor -- even if you've recently had a clean mammogram. Check for lumps in your armpits, too. Tip Cancerous lumps are more likely to be hard, painless, and unmovable. Step 3: Beware of dimpled skin Look for visible changes, like dimpled, puckered, thickened, reddened, or scaly breast skin, or a flattening or indentation on the breast. All are potential breast cancer symptoms that should be evaluated. Step 4: Note nipple changes Recognize the nipple changes that can indicate breast cancer -- pain; redness; scaliness; itching; skin thickening; the nipple turning inward; or discharge other than breast milk. Step 5: Have pain and swelling evaluated See your doctor about swelling in all or part of your breast, or breast pain. Though swelling and soreness are usually no cause for concern, these symptoms can be signs of a rare but aggressive form of the disease known as inflammatory breast cancer. Step 6: Get regular check-ups Have your doctor perform a breast examination at your yearly check-up, and begin annual mammograms at age 40. If you have a family history of the disease, tell your doctor: they may suggest that you start having mammograms at an earlier age. Knowing the signs of breast cancer -- and being proactive about knowing how to recognize them early -- is the best way to protect yourself. Did You Know? In a "Breastcancer.org":http://www.breastcancer.org/ survey of more than 2,200 women, 37 percent said they first detected their breast cancer with a self-exam.

Screening MRI Allows Detection of More Breast Cancers in High-Risk Women Than Mammography and Ultrasound Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) enables radiologists to accurately identify tumors missed by mammography and ultrasound, according to a multicenter study comparing the three screening methods in women at high risk for breast cancer. The findings of the study appear in the August issue of the RSNA journal Radiology. In the study, six cancers were detected in 171 genetically high-risk women, all of whom underwent mammography, ultrasound and MRI 90 days apart. Mammography detected two of the cancers while ultrasound detected one. MRI detected all six. For more information, visit www.RSNA.org.

15 Early Warning Signs And Symptoms Of Cancer Most People Miss Thanks for watching Don't forget to Subscribe Here :- https://goo.gl/nPqorz Take a look at these 15 signs and symptoms. Some are linked more strongly to cancer than others, but all are worth knowing about -- and even talking over with your doctor. 1. Problems When You Pee Many men have some problems peeing as they get older, like: •A need to pee more often, especially at night •Dribbling, leaking, or an urgent need to go •Trouble starting to pee, or a weak stream • A burning sensation when they pee 2. Changes in Your Testicles "If you notice a lump, heaviness, or any other change in your testicle, never delay having it looked at," says Herbert Lepor, MD, urology chairman at New York University Langone Medical Center. "Unlike prostate cancer, which grows slowly, testicular cancer can take off overnight." Your doctor will look for any problems with a physical exam, bloodtests, and an ultrasound of your scrotum. 3. Blood in Your Pee or Stool These can be among the first signs of cancer of the bladder, kidneys, or colon. It's a good idea to see your doctor for any bleeding that’s not normal, even if you don't have other symptoms, Lepor says. Although you're more likely to have a problem that's not cancer 4. Skin Changes When you notice a change in the size, shape, or color of a mole or other spot on your skin, see your doctor as soon as you can. Spots that are new or look different are top signs of skin cancer. You’ll need an exam and perhaps a biopsy, which means doctors remove a small piece of tissue for testing. With skin cancer, 5. Changes in Lymph Nodes Tenderness of swelling in your lymph nodes, the small bean-shaped glands found in your neck, armpits, and other places, often signal that something's going on in your body. Usually, it means your immune system is fighting a sore throat or cold, but certain cancers can also trigger the changes. 6. Trouble Swallowing Some people have trouble swallowing from time to time. But if your problems don’t go away and you’re also losing weight or vomiting, your doctor may want to check you for throat or stomach cancer. He’ll start with a throat exam and barium X-ray. 7. Heartburn You can take care of most cases of heartburn with changes to your diet, drinking habits, and stress levels. If that doesn’t help, ask your doctor to look into your symptoms. Heartburn that doesn't go away or gets worse could mean stomach or throat cancer. 8. Mouth Changes If you smoke or chew tobacco, you have a higher risk of mouth cancer. Keep an eye out for white, red, gray or yellow patches inside your mouth or on your lips. You could also develop a canker sore that looks like an ulcer with a crater in it. Talk to your doctor or dentist about tests and treatments. 9. Weight Loss Without Trying Pants fitting a little looser? If you haven’t changed your diet or exercise habits, it could mean that stress or a thyroid problem is taking a toll. But losing 10 pounds or more without trying isn’t normal. Although most unintended weight loss is not cancer, it’s one of the signs of cancer of the pancreas, stomach, or lungs.. 10. Fever A fever is usually not a bad thing -- it means your body is fighting an infection. But one that won't go away and doesn’t have an explanation could signal leukemia or another blood cancer. Your doctor should take your medical history and give you a physical exam to check on the cause. 11. Breast Changes In 2017 alone, 2,470 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer. "Men tend to ignore breast lumps because breast cancer isn't on their radar," Meyers says, warning that in men those cancers are also, “diagnosed much later." Don’t take any chances. If you find a lump, tell your doctor and have it checked. Early detection is key to successful treatment. 12. Fatigue Many types of cancer cause a bone-deep tiredness that never gets better, no matter how much rest you get. It’s different from the exhaustion you feel after a hectic week or a lot of activity. If fatigue is affecting your daily life, talk to your doctor. She can help you find the cause and let you know if there are ways to treat it. 13. Cough In nonsmokers, a nagging cough is usually not cancer. Most go away after 3 to 4 weeks. If yours doesn’t, and you’re short of breath or cough up blood, don't delay a visit to your doctor, especially if you smoke. 14. Pain Cancer doesn’t cause most aches and pains, but if you’re hurting for more than a month, don’t just grin and bear it. Ongoing pain can be a signal of many types of cancer, including bone or brain cancer, especially those that have spread, Lepor says. 15. Belly Pain and Depression It’s rare, but depression along with stomach pain can be a sign of cancer of the pancreas. Should you worry? Not unless this cancer runs in your family, Meyers says. Then you need to see your doctor.

Julia Camps Herrero, MD of the Hospital de la Ribera, Alzira, Spain, discusses the use of various methods for the detection of breast cancer at the 2016 World Congress on Controversies in Breast Cancer (CoBrCa), in Barcelona, Spain. She starts by explaining that mammography is not perfect. Up to 40% of cancers can be missed in very dense breasts. Other methods that are better than mammography have therefore been looked into. These are methods that do not need radiation, methods that do not need contrast, and methods that can look into breast density more effectively. One improved method is tomosynthesis; although it is also a form of radiation modality, it has the advantage of scanning the whole breast and reconstructing an image every 1mm. Therefore, the cancer can be seen straight away. Tomosynthesis has already been used in screenings, in perspective trials especially in Europe and also retrospective trials in the USA. The results have been very encouraging as not only does it detect 35% more of cancers, it also lowers the recall rate meaning it is more specific than mammography. Another method is ultrasound. Ultrasound for screening has 3 per 1000 detection rate. The problem with it, however, is that it is very time-consuming and has a very low positive predictive value, with many more false positives in ultrasound than in mammography. The third method is MRI. MRI is a method, which has been used to screen high risk patients, i.e. patients with a hereditary risk greater than 20%. MRI is advancing and an abbreviated method of MRI has been proposed. This would mean less time to carry out the MRI and less time to read it. Another method is diffusion MRI which is an MRI that does not need any contrast. Although the data at the moment is theoretical, it is very encouraging because it doesn’t need contrast and isn’t affected by breast density and does not hurt the patient in any way.
