IVF Treatment for soon-to-be-parents
The month of October is breast cancer awareness month and we at IVF genesis are here to burst some breast cancer myths for you guys. Modern Technology has made it easier for women to find information about breast cancer. Also, it has paved a way to be misled too about facts. There are myths that are often being circulated and popularized which distort understanding of breast cancer to some extent. We will be covering all your concerns here in this blog and let us know in the comments section below if you want to know more.
Myth No.1: Deo causes breast cancer
This myth is the most common one which is based on flawed studies about 2 common ingredients in them which are parabens and aluminium. Aluminium is used to block the sweat glands and people get worried thinking it will prevent the release of toxins and in turn damage breast tissue and estrogen receptors. The toxins in the scents and parabens get processed by the liver and kidneys and are expelled from the body through urine and feces. Research shows that parabens are too weak to affect cancer risk.
Myth No. 2: Underwire Bras will cause Breast Cancer
Back in the year 1995, there was a book published which claimed that women who wore bras for 12 hours or more are more likely to develop breast cancer. However, there was no proof to substantiate the claims and studies discredited it. Researchers then found out that there is no correlation of any sort to bras to breast cancer.
Myth No. 3: Breast Implants may cause Breast Cancer
Every year breast augmentation and implantation surgeries are increasing to change the look, shape, and feel of the breasts and it comes as a no surprise that women are opting for it. There are few who are afraid that it will alter their cancer risk. But fortunately, there is no hard evidence that shows that breast implants can raise a woman’s risk when it comes to developing breast cancer and they do not affect the quality of a woman’s mammograms.
Myth No. 4: Men do not get Breast Cancer
One of the biggest myths that ought to be debunked is this. Both men and women have breast tissues and both of them are susceptible to breast cancer. Unfortunately most of the time male breast cancer is often overlooked because men have far fewer breast tissues and less likely to develop symptoms. As per estimates, 2500 men were diagnosed with breast cancer this year when compared to 300,000 women. Regardless of gender any man or woman who is suffering from breast cancer symptoms should see a doctor at IVF Genesis as soon as possible.
Myth No. 5: All Breast lumps can be cancer
Most of the women assume that if they ever find a lump on their breast, it means that they have cancer. It’s Time for a reality check! 80% of lumps that are formed are completely harmless. Most of these cysts or sacs of fluid are caused by hormonal changes or the fibroadenomas by sensitivity to estrogens. They can be easily treated and sometimes can disappear on their own which is not likely to be life-threatening.
Myth no 6: Young women do not get breast cancer
As per reports, Yes! Breast cancer is rare in women under 40 but it can definitely affect women at any age. Nowadays 10 to 15% of breast cancers are diagnosed for women under 40 and when the woman experiences any symptoms, she must consult the doctor.
Myth No.7: There is no need for a Second Opinion
Getting a second opinion from renowned doctors is a must and should as it allows women to weigh their options and choose the course of treatment they feel most comfortable with. In fact, doctors themselves may normally encourage patients to explore their options as much as possible and only then can help lessen the odds.
