Symptoms Indicating Breast Cancer That Most Women Neglect

Modern medicine has made a lot of progress and has been able to find a cure for several diseases once considered deadly. However, cancer remains a disease that threatens the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Among its different types, we find one that is particularly deadly for women: breast cancer. So what are the symptoms that help in his early diagnosis?

Breast cancer is the most common and deadly type of cancer in women, ahead of lung cancer and colorectal cancer. Also affecting men, but to a lesser extent, it originates in the mammary cells, which begin to multiply too quickly and in an anarchic way. These mutant cells turn into cancer cells that can spread and contaminate neighboring tissues.

What factors favor the onset of breast cancer?

While it is difficult to determine the exact causes of breast cancer, some factors may increase the risk. Here are the main ones:
- A genetic predisposition due to a mutation of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes responsible for DNA repair.

- Family history: If close family members have breast or ovarian cancer, the risk of developing it yourself is significantly increased.

- Age: the risk of developing breast cancer increases in women aged between 50 and 69 years.

- Overweight: By retaining toxins, the stored fat in the body helps to create an inflammatory state in the body, promoting the onset of tumors. In addition, overweight is associated with a greater risk of recidivism and mortality.

- Hormones: oral contraceptives, early menstruation, late menopause, late pregnancy or absence of pregnancy, hormone replacement therapy, etc.
    Unhealthy lifestyle: unbalanced diet, excess alcohol, smoking, sedentary lifestyle ...

What Are the Symptoms of Mammary Tumors?

Moles that change their appearance

Moles are generally considered to be one of the signs of skin cancer. Yes, but not only! A study of more than 120,000 nurses aged 39 to 65 at Harvard University showed that those with at least 15 moles with an average diameter of 3mm on the arm were at risk % Higher during the 24 years following the study. Even if the relationship is not causal, the moles are influenced by the hormones whose blood concentration they indicate.

A persistent cough

In case of metastasis, cancerous tumors of the breast can spread and reach the lungs, causing the appearance of certain symptoms including cough. When it is persistent and resistant to various medical treatments, it is absolutely necessary to consult to determine the exact cause.
Intense fatigue

Due to the action of the immune system, which tries to fight cancerous tumors or causes functional disorders, a state of intense fatigue can set in, preventing the person who suffers from it from leading a normal life. In case you feel exhausted, even by adopting a rich diet and enjoying adequate and restful sleep, it is strongly recommended to seek medical advice.
Unexplained back pain

When tumors begin to develop in the deep tissues of the breast, they exert some pressure on the spine, which causes a feeling of pain in the back. In other cases, this sensation only appears in metastasis, a stage during which cancer cells spread and reach the surrounding bones, making them painful.
Urinary problems

In addition to coughing which exerts pressure on the bladder, the hormonal changes accompanying breast cancer also cause disorders in the breast. Thus, several symptoms may appear, such as dryness of the urethra, urinary incontinence, as well as urgent urges to urinate and a lengthy duration of urination.

To increase your chances of curing breast cancer and reduce your risk of recurrence, it is important to stay tuned to your body to detect any unusual changes or phenomena. Do not hesitate to consult a doctor after the appearance of one of the symptoms mentioned above.
