Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Inspire is delighted to have teamed up with Expat Life magazine to bring you more great content to do with Thailand

October, is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an occasion that reminds us of the critical importance of having awareness of this ferocious disease and the undeniable correlation between awareness and treatment; the earlier the detection, the more effective the treatment. And a fast action only requires a high level of awareness. It is no secret that in the past few decades, cancer rates, in general have been on the rise all around the world, triggering more and more research digging deeper in the causes, prevention and treatment of all kinds of cancer. Here, we will shed some light on the breast cancer.

With the rising global rates of breast cancer, every woman should pay attention to the slightest changes occurring in her body, specifically her breasts. Growing a lump or a mass is not the only alarming sign which women should act upon finding. Other slighter symptoms must also be taken seriously. These include the swelling of all or part of a breast, skin irritation, breast or nipple pain, nipple retraction, redness or thickening of the nipple or breast skin and nipple discharge, other than breast milk.

Although people have developed more and more awareness of the disease and its symptoms, most people are still not aware of the most common factors that cause cancer. True that genetics, age and a history with the disease are common factors but they account for only around 3 out of 10 cases. There are more evasive causes which must be taken into account, being lifestyle and environment factors. It has been proven that women exposed to oestrogen for long periods of time increase their chances of developing the disease. This explains why breastfeeding mothers for more than one year have less chances of developing breast cancer, since breastfeeding decreases women’s oestrogen levels. Whereas women on hormone treatments or birth control pills, which contain high levels of oestrogen, have a higher risk of developing it.

While still on this matter, oestrogen levels are also linked to obesity. Overweight women have higher levels of oestrogen, thus, developing higher chances. High sugar intake has also been linked to cancer in general. Studies have also shown a relation between alcohol consumption and cancer; the higher the intake, the higher the chances. So, it is high time we all start reconsidering our lifestyle and health habits. Just like any disease, cancer has stages of development based on how advanced the disease is.

So, when a patient is diagnosed with cancer, it is designated by a number from 0 to 4, with number 4 indicating the most advanced stage and 0 being the stage of the disease that is the easiest to be treated. That said, time is of the essence when it comes to the detection and diagnosis of cancer. The more time you wait, the faster the cancer grows and moves from an early stage into a more advanced one.
