The fear of having breastcancer is a real threat that faces most women; it is a global health issue that has become one of the leading causes of death in women. Breast cancer makes up about 16% of all female cancers and is responsible for 18.2% of all cancer deaths worldwide. Interestingly, breast cancers also occur in men, although in a much lower percentage.
The high rate of this disease is truly disturbing, and in recent times, the number of cases in developing countries like Nigeria has continued to be on the rise with about 100,000 new cancer cases each year, with breast cancer accounting for 16% of all cancer deaths in Nigeria.
As the disease becomes more widespread, it is important that information regarding its early detection and treatment be made known to more women.
Health experts are still not sure of the definite causes of breast cancer. It is just known that certain risk factors contribute in making some women more likely to develop breast cancers than others. But this is not always the case, as some women who have these risk factors do not end up developing breastcancer, and those without these risk factors can still develop breast cancers.
Regardless of this fact, it is still needful that women be aware of the risk factors that include:
Age: The risk of developing breast cancers tends to increase with the age of the woman, with cancers occurring more in women who are above the age of 50, or have passed the stage of menopause.
Hereditary: Although most cancers are non-heritable, there is an increased risk of breastcancer if it has occurred before in a family member.
Obesity: An increase in body cholesterol can instigate the growth of cancerous cells.
Oestrogen Levels: A general increase in the level of estrogen hormones in a woman’s body can lead to breast cancer.
Radiation exposure: Being exposed to radiations through x-rays and related tests can also develop the growth of cancer cells.
Alcohol Intake: Studies have established that excessive consumption of alcohol by women can be a cause of breast cancer.
Treatment for Breast Cancer
Early detection of causes of breast cancer is the key to cancer treatment; this is why regular breast self-examination is encouraged to detect any unusual lump in the breast, which should be reported immediately. So depending on the type of breastcancer and the stage – how far the cancerous cells have spread – different treatment methods can be used which include:
Radiotherapy: This involves the use of radiation to target and kill off specific cancerous cells. Several types of radiotherapy treatment methods have currently been made available for breast cancer treatment.
Chemotherapy: Here certain cytotoxic drugs are used to kill cancer cells and in cases where the cancer cells have metastasized or spread to other parts of the body, these drugs are used to shrink their sizes for easier removal through surgery.
Surgery: Another treatment method involves surgically removing the breast cancer cells. In this process, the lump may be removed (lumpectomy) or sometimes the whole breast may have to be removed (mastectomy) to stop the cancerous growth.
Hormone/Drug Therapy: This involves the use of certain drugs to block the action of some hormones that encourage cancerous growth e.g. Oestrogen.
Traditional Chinese Medicine: This treatment method involves the use of some Chinese herbal medicines in breast cancer management and treatment, which has proved to be very effective in some cases.
