    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.

    CONTINUOUSLY GET YOUR EXAMS WOMEN!!!!! MEN GET YOUR ROUTINE CHECK-UPS ALSO.

    When breast cancer is detected early (localized stage), the 5-year survival rate is 98%.

    WHAT IS CANCER?

    Breast cancer is a group of cancer cells (malignant tumor) that starts in the cells of the breast.

    BREAST CANCER FACTS

    Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women.

    ABOUT MALE BREAST CANCER

    All people, whether male or female, are born with some breast cells and tissue that have the possibility to develop into cancer. However, breast cancer in men is rare, with only about 2,190 diagnoses each year.

    CAUSES OF BREAST CANCER

    Although most people who develop breast cancer will not be able to pinpoint one specific cause, scientists have learned much about risk factors that may indicate a stronger likelihood for cancer. Learn about the myths and factors that may apply to you.

    TYPES OF TUMORS

    Breast cancer tumors can be categorized by the size, type of cells, and the characteristics that fuel its growth. Learn more about benign tumors, malignant tumors, and classification.

    BREAST ANATOMY

    To understand breast cancer and its treatment options, it helps to know the anatomy of the breast and surrounding tissue. Learn more about the ducts, glands, and lymph system and how each is important for cancer development and treatment.

    GROWTH OF CANCER

    How does cancer spread into the nearby breast tissue? What happens to cause cancer to spread to other organs? Learn what you need to know about the growth of cancer and the possible measures to stop it.

    RISK FACTORS

    Some cancer risk factors – like smoking – are controllable. Some other cancer risk factors –like genetics – are not. Find out more about potential risk factors and how you can plan for your healthiest life.

    Early Detection

    SYMPTOMS & SIGNS

    Early warning signs of breast cancer may involve the discovery of a new lump or a change in the breast tissue or skin.

    HOW TO PERFORM A BREAST SELF-EXAM

    Women should perform a self breast-exam each month and any changes or abnormalities should be discussed with a doctor or physician.

    CLINICAL BREAST EXAM

    A clinical breast exam is performed by a qualified nurse or doctor. A healthcare professional will check for lumps or other physical changes in the breast that may need to be investigated.

    MAMMOGRAM

    A mammogram is an x-ray that allows a qualified specialist to examine the breast tissue for any suspicious areas. In a diagnostic mammogram, more x-rays are taken, providing views of the breast from multiple vantage points.

    EARLY DETECTION PLAN

    An Early Detection Plan enables you to be proactive about your health by reminding you to do monthly breast self-exams and schedule clinical breast exams and mammograms.

    HEALTHY HABITS

    Leading a healthy lifestyle can help you reduce your risk factors for breast cancer and other illnesses.

    Breast Cancer Diagnosis

    MAMMOGRAM

    A mammogram is an x-ray that allows a qualified specialist to examine the breast tissue for any suspicious areas. In a diagnostic mammogram, more x-rays are taken, providing views of the breast from multiple vantage points.

    ULTRASOUND

    A breast ultrasound is a scan that uses penetrating sound waves that do not affect or damage the tissue and cannot be heard by humans.

    MRI

    During a breast MRI, a magnet connected to a computer transmits magnetic energy and radio waves (not radiation) through the breast tissue. It scans the tissue, making detailed pictures of areas within the breast.

    BIOPSY

    A breast biopsy is a test that removes tissue or sometimes fluid from the suspicious area. The removed cells are examined under a microscope and further tested to check for the presence of breast cancer.

    LAB TESTS

    If you are diagnosed with breast cancer, your doctor may order additional lab tests to assist with prognosis.

    WAITING FOR RESULTS

    Waiting for the results of biopsy testing, scans, or lab results can understandably weigh heavily on your mind.

    STAGES OF BREAST CANCER

    Once a person is determined to have a malignant tumor or the diagnosis of breast cancer, the healthcare team will determine staging to communicate how far the disease has progressed.

    WHY IS THE BREAST CANCER STAGE IMPORTANT?

    Determining the stage helps determine the best way to contain and eliminate the breast cancer.

    HOW IS THE STAGE DETERMINED?

    The stage is based on the following factors:

    The size of the tumor within the breast

    The number of lymph nodes affected

    The nearest lymph nodes are found under the arm, known as the axillary area

    Signs indicating whether or not the breast cancer cancer has invaded other organs within the body

    If breast cancer has spread, or metastasized, evidence be may found in the bones, liver, lungs, or brain.

    STAGE 0 & 1

    These lowest numbered stages represent the earliest detection of breast cancer development. At Stage 0 and 1, the cancer cells are confined to a very limited area.

    STAGE 2 (II) AND STAGE 2A (IIA)

    Stage 2 breast cancer is still in the earlier stages, but there is evidence that the cancer has begun to grow or spread. It is still contained to the breast area and is generally very effectively treated.

    STAGE 3 (III) A, B, AND C

    Stage 3 breast cancer is considered advanced cancer with evidence of cancer invading surrounding tissues near the breast.

    STAGE 4 (IV)

    Stage 4 breast cancer indicates that cancer has spread beyond the breast to other areas of the body.

    CURRENT STANDARDS OF CARE

    Should patients insist on comprehensive scans, regardless of the stage?

    It may not be necessary, but always seek the advice of your physician. There was a time when everyone diagnosed with breast cancer would routinely have a series of scans and tests to rule out the presence of cancer in other organs.However, this standard was discontinued in 1998 by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.

    The NCCN put forth new national standards for diagnosis and treatment of each type of breast cancer. Instead of undergoing complete “staging work-ups” as they are called, such extensive testing is now often unnecessary, in part due to earlier detection.

    The most extensive testing is now commonly reserved for patients with locally advanced disease (very large tumors with cancer affecting several lymph nodes, for example) or for patients whose long-term physical symptoms may imply that breast cancer has spread elsewhere.

    TYPES OF BREAST CANCER:

    DUCTAL CARCINOMA IN SITU

    Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS) is a non-invasive breast cancer where abnormal cells have been contained in the lining of the breast milk duct.

    INVASIVE DUCTAL CARCINOMA

    Invasive Ductal Carcinoma means that abnormal cells that originated in the lining of the breast milk duct have invaded surrounding tissue.

    The best way to fight breast cancer is to have a plan that helps you detect the disease in its early stages. Create your Early Detection Plan to receive reminders to do breast self-exams, and schedule your clinical breast exams and mammograms based on your age and health history.

    TRIPLE NEGATIVE BREAST CANCER

    Triple negative breast cancer means that the cells in the tumor are negative for progesterone, estrogen, and HER2/neu receptors.

    INFLAMMATORY BREAST CANCER

    Inflammatory breast cancer is a less common form of breast cancer that may not develop a tumor and often affects the skin.

    METASTATIC BREAST CANCER

    Metastatic breast cancer is cancer that has spread beyond the breast, sometimes into the lungs, bones, or brain.

    BREAST CANCER DURING PREGNANCY

    Women who are diagnosed with breast cancer during pregnancy may face tremendous additional strain due to concern for the safety of the unborn child.

    OTHER TYPES

    Less common types of breast cancer include Medullary Carcinoma, Tubular Carcinoma, and Mucinous Carcinoma.

    TREATMENT

    CHOOSING YOUR DOCTOR

    Working with a doctor to guide your breast cancer treatment decisions is key. Determine what you need to do to cultivate a positive partnership with your doctor and when it might be prudent to seek a second opinion.

    STANDARD TREATMENT VS. CLINICAL TRIALS

    Before selecting your breast cancer treatment plan, it’s a good idea to understand the difference between standard treatment and clinical trials so you can make an informed decision about what is right for you.

    SURGERY

    The most common form of treatment for breast cancer is surgery. This involves removing the tumor and nearby margins. Surgical options may include a lumpectomy, partial mastectomy, radical mastectomy, and reconstruction.

    CHEMOTHERAPY

    Chemotherapy is a breast cancer treatment method that uses a combination of drugs to either destroy cancer cells or slow down the growth of cancer cells.

    RADIATION THERAPY

    Radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy) uses high-energy rays to kill cancer cells. It affects the nearby skin or cells only in the part of the body that is treated with the radiation.

    HORMONE THERAPY

    If the cancer cells have hormone receptors, you may be prescribed hormone therapy drugs, such as blockers or inhibitors. Both types of drugs help to destroy cancer cells by cutting off their supply of hormones.

    TARGETED THERAPY

    Targeted therapy uses drugs that block the growth of breast cancer cells in specific ways, often reducing side effects.

    NUTRITION AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

    It's important for you to take very good care of yourself before, during, and after breast cancer treatment.

    FOLLOW-UP CARE

    You'll need regular check-ups after treatment for breast cancer. This helps ensure that any changes in your health are noted and treated if needed.

    THE BREAST CANCER MYTHS

    Finding a lump in your breast means you have breast cancer.

    THE TRUTH

    Only a small percentage of breast lumps turn out to be cancer. But if you discover a persistent lump in your breast or notice any changes in breast tissue, it should never be ignored. It is very important that you see a physician for a clinical breast exam. He or she may possibly order breast imaging studies to determine if this lump is of concern or not.

    Take charge of your health by performing routine breast self-exams, establishing ongoing communication with your doctor, getting an annual clinical breast exam, and scheduling your routine screening mammograms.

    THE BREAST CANCER MYTH

    Men do not get breast cancer; it affects women only.

    THE TRUTH

    Quite the contrary, each year it is estimated that approximately 2,190 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 410 will die. While this percentage is still small, men should also check themselves periodically by doing a breast self-exam while in the shower and reporting any changes to their physicians.

    Breast cancer in men is usually detected as a hard lump underneath the nipple and areola. Men carry a higher mortality than women do, primarily because awareness among men is less and they are less likely to assume a lump is breast cancer, which can cause a delay in seeking treatment.

    THE BREAST CANCER MYTH

    A mammogram can cause breast cancer to spread.

    THE TRUTH

    A mammogram, or x-ray of the breast, currently remains the gold standard for the early detection of breast cancer. Breast compression while getting a mammogram cannot cause cancer to spread. According to the National Cancer Institute, “The benefits of mammography, however, nearly always outweigh the potential harm from the radiation exposure. Mammograms require very small doses of radiation. The risk of harm from this radiation exposure is extremely low.”

    The standard recommendation is an annual mammographic screening for women beginning at age 40. Base your decision on your physician's recommendation and be sure to discuss any remaining questions or concerns you may have with your physician.

    THE BREAST CANCER MYTH

    If you have a family history of breast cancer, you are likely to develop breast cancer, too.

    THE TRUTH

    While women who have a family history of breast cancer are in a higher risk group, most women who have breast cancer have no family history. Statistically only about 10% of individuals diagnosed with breast cancer have a family history of this disease.

    If you have a first degree relative with breast cancer: If you have a mother, daughter, or sister who developed breast cancer below the age of 50, you should consider some form of regular diagnostic breast imaging starting 10 years before the age of your relative’s diagnosis.

    If you have a second degree relative with breast cancer: If you have had a grandmother or aunt who was diagnosed with breast cancer, your risk increases slightly, but it is not in the same risk category as those who have a first degree relative with breast cancer.

    If you have multiple generations diagnosed with breast cancer on the same side of the family, or if there are several individuals who are first degree relatives to one another, or several family members diagnosed under age 50, the probability increases that there is a breast cancer gene contributing to the cause of this familial history.

    THE BREAST CANCER MYTH

    Breast cancer is contagious.

    THE TRUTH

    You cannot catch breast cancer or transfer it to someone else's body. Breast cancer is the result of uncontrolled cell growth of mutated cells that begin to spread into other tissues within the breast. However, you can reduce your risk by practicing a healthy lifestyle, being aware of the risk factors, and following an early detection plan so that you will be diagnosed early if breast cancer were to occur.

    THE BREAST CANCER MYTH

    If the gene mutation BRCA1 or BRCA2 is detected in your DNA, you will definitely develop breast cancer.

    THE TRUTH

    According to the National Cancer Institute, regarding families who are known to carry BRCA1 or BRCA2, “not every woman in such families carries a harmful BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation, and not every cancer in such families is linked to a harmful mutation in one of these genes. Furthermore, not every woman who has a harmful BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation will develop breast and/or ovarian cancer.But, a woman who has inherited a harmful mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 is about five times more likely to develop breast cancer than a woman who does not have such a mutation.” For people who discover they have the harmful mutation, there are various proactive measures that can be done to reduce risk. These include taking a hormonal therapy called Tamoxifen or deciding to take a surgical prevention approach which is to have bilateral prophylactic mastectomies, usually done with reconstruction. Most women will also have ovaries and fallopian tubes removed as well since there is no reliable screening test for the early stages of developing ovarian cancer.

    THE BREAST CANCER MYTH

    Antiperspirants and deodorants cause breast cancer.

    THE TRUTH

    Researchers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) are not aware of any conclusive evidence linking the use of underarm antiperspirants or deodorants and the subsequent development of breast cancer.

    Breast Cancer FAQs

    Can physical activity reduce the risk of breast cancer?

    Exercise boosts the immune system and helps you to keep your weight in check. With as little as three hours of exercise per week, or about 30 minutes a day, a woman can begin to lower her risk of breast cancer. This doesn’t require going to a gym either. Power walking is more than sufficient!

    Can a healthy diet help to prevent breast cancer?

    A nutritious, low-fat diet (30 grams or less) with plenty of fruits and green and orange vegetables can help reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. A high-fat diet increases the risk because fat triggers estrogen production that can fuel tumor growth.

    Does smoking cause breast cancer?

    Smoking is a confirmed risk factor for many types of cancer. Recent research in the last year (2012) has confirmed that smoking is a contributing risk factor for developing breast cancer. Additionally, second hand smoke is also a risk factor for cancer. So if you are a smoker, help yourself in a significant way and join a smoking cessation program to help you stop. The day you stop smoking the healing can begin and each week in which you are smoke-free, you give yourself increasing advantages for a healthier life. Smoking also directly contributes to heart and other lung diseases, too.

    Can drinking alcohol increase the risk of breast cancer?

    Moderation is key. One drink per day has been shown to slightly increase the risk of breast cancer. Having more than one drink per day has shown to be a more significant risk factor, and the alcohol content doesn’t matter: wine, beer or a mixed drink. Alcohol also increases estrogen in your bloodstream. Although we know that more than one drink per day increases risks, to date there are no studies that demonstrate directly that the more a person drinks, the greater their risk for cancer. And in some cases, drinking one glass of wine a day can offer heart-health benefit. If you drink alcohol, this is an important topic to discuss with your doctor so that you will know what limits are best for you to observe.

    Is there a link between oral contraceptives and breast cancer?

    There is an increased risk of breast cancer for women who have been using birth control pills for more than five years. However due to the low amount of hormones in birth control pills today, the risk is relatively small. But if a young woman has a significant family history of breast cancer, her gynecologist may recommend taking a break for a year from the pill at the 5-year time frame then resuming again for another 5 years. Although evidence-based research data does not offer strong support for this standard of care, it has nevertheless become an increasingly common practice.

    Is there a link between hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and breast cancer?

    Yes, there is. HRT was added to the carcinogenic list by the American Cancer Society in the early 2000s. It is recommended that women with known risks not be placed on HRT to control of menopausal symptoms. They should instead seek other safer alternatives.

    How often should I do a breast self exam (BSE)?

    Give yourself a breast self-exam once a month. Look for any changes in breast tissue, such as changes in size, feeling a palpable lump, dimpling or puckering of the breast, inversion of the nipple, redness or scaliness of the breast skin, redness or scaliness of the nipple/areola area, or discharge of secretions from the nipple. If you discover a persistent lump in your breast or any changes, it is very important that you see a physician immediately. Though 8 out of 10 lumps are benign, all require evaluation to confirm that they are not cancerous. Women should perform their breast self exam 7-10 days after their menstrual period starts which is also when their breasts are the least tender and lumpy. If they are no longer menstruating, then she should select the same day of the month (first of the month for example) and mark it on the calendar to remind herself when to perform this self exam. What to look for is a change from last month’s exam to this month’s exam. It is not unusual to have lumpy or bumpy breasts. All women should know the geography of their own breasts. If having trouble remembering, draw a diagram of where the lumps, bumps, grooves, and other findings are felt so that this can be used as a reminder from month to month. There is no added value in doing breast self exams more often than monthly. Also the findings may be different as well, in relationship to where a woman is in her menstrual cycle.

    Does a family history of breast cancer put someone at a higher risk?

    Although women who have a family history of breast cancer are in a higher risk group, most women who have breast cancer have no family history. Statistically only 5-10% of individuals diagnosed with breast cancer have a family history of this disease.

    Are mammograms painful?

    Mammography does compress the breasts and can sometimes cause slight discomfort for a very brief period of time. Patients who are sensitive should schedule their mammograms a week after their menstrual cycle so that the breasts are less tender. Your doctor may say it is fine to take acetaminophen an hour before the x-ray is performed to prevent discomfort too.

    How does menstrual and reproductive history affect breast cancer risks?

    Women who began their menstrual cycles before age 12, have no biological children, or had their first child at 30 or older, or began menopause after 55 are at a higher risk. This means that research has proven that the number of menstrual cycles a woman has over time influences risk.

    How often should I go to my doctor for a check-up?

    You should have a physical every year which should include a clinical breast exam and pelvic exam. If any unusual symptoms or changes in your breasts occur before your scheduled visit, do not hesitate to see the doctor immediately.

    What kind of impact does stress have on breast cancer?

    In 2012, some research studies have shown that factors such as traumatic events and losses can alter immune system functions, and when immune functions are altered cancer cells may have an opportunity to get themselves established within one’s body. What has been shown is that it is not the fact that a major life crisis has occurred but instead how the individual reacted to this event and coped (or didn’t cope). Therefore, identifying ways to keep your stress level in check is wise.

    Very sad news about the Ebola virus rapidly spreading in certain parts of Africa and now slowly spreading in other parts of the world. It is so terrible how a deadly virus could just unexpectedly appear, disappear and then re-appear again from out of no where as if it was hiding or hibernating for years. I pray that the Ebola virus is quickly contained (controlled) and stops spreading in Jesus Name, AMEN! I am so very happy and grateful that my destiny and personal life journey along with my childrens destiny and personal life journey is not linked or connected to any deadly disease or virus of any kind, in JESUS NAME, AMEN! We have to stay immuned (exempt or free) from these diseases and viruses, IN JESUS NAME, AMEN!!!!! Continue to be watchful, very careful and prayerful.

    Stay safe and healthy. I am working on making exercise a vital part of my healthy physical daily lifestyle, along with eating healthier more regularly with a very few cheats..... (Taking much larger baby steps...lol) Title Boxing is an excellent workout. Love a great challenge, will be joining The Title Boxing Club soon. I am a naturally energized person, when I finished my first Title Boxing workout I had so much extra energy. I work overnight from 1:00am. til 9:00am. at my job, with weekends off. A shift I was able to pick for myself, so that my daytime could be free to do other important things. My kids think that I don't need any sleep before going back to work, they think that I am Super Duper Mom. I have to remind them that I work at night, not sleep at night during the week, like they do. I don't ever think that I will get 8 hours of sleep again, while working this shift, I barely get 6 sometimes, but still have energy, thank God. I know I have to be very careful, so I won't burn myself out. Good thing my job is somewhat simple. I have worked the overnight shift before in the past when working at the Chicago Police Department while living in Chicago, so not difficult for me to do, I can ajust to whatever even still now. Also I am the vitamin girl. I take multi-vitamins and I also provide vitamins for my kids which I have been doing ever since they were old enough to start taking them. I have to take the women chewables because I at most times have a hard time swallowing any size pills. I also take the extra collogen care for women vita help. I have been giving my teen daughter the one-a-day multi for teens since the beginning of her teen years. For my son I recently purchased the vitamins for men with prostate care. My kids are picky eaters, although they will eat some healthy foods. Not necessarily trying to use the vitamins for substitutes of healthy eating, but to help provide that extra or somewhat exact amount of much needed nutrients. They came into this world as very healthy babies and it is my job as their mother to help keep them that way in whatever ways that are safely possible. Always consult your doctor before purchasing any type of vitamins or health help, just to be safe, especially if you or your kids take other medications for whatever reasons and if pregnant.

    Anyway, my sister and I went to the 6:45pm workout, we were aiming for the 5:30pm workout on that day, but we ended up being very late. I worked that day until 9am, was up all night at my job, didn't get any sleep yet during that day not even a little nap time in. We then went to The Title Boxing Workout that evening to the 6:45pm class. I had so much energy before I got there and ended up with extra extra energy after I left. The work out was a challenge, it challenged every part of my body especially my abs, but it was all so good and greatly needed. I felt the effect in my abs for the next 3 days. The rest of my body was A okay, but my abs were...... If I didn't feel any type of pressure that would have meant that the workout is not challenging enough, not challenging my body. I am so looking forward to doing it all again and again and again. Again I say, stay safe and healthy.

    My Mom and my 2 sisters are traveling by plane from Chicago on this Saturday to Phoenix Arizona, they will be visiting with my family and I for a week, yeah! Unfortunately I couldn't accomodate them comfortably in my home, so I worked my magic and found them an excellent priced hotel to stay in with great amenities included, which is very fortunate. We all know that photos are sometimes deceiving online, so I went to the hotel to check it out and requested to view the inside of a room and all looked well enough to make reservations. My Mom especially should be satisfied, I found her exactly what she requested, but at an exceptional price that was unbelievable. We got to have a pajama party, yes yes yes, that's the kid in me talking, but I am so very serious! Greatly Looking forward to their visit. I haven't checked but I am sure that the weather in Chicago is a bit cold or on its way to being cold soon. They will be welcomed with sunshine in Phoenix and 80 - 90 degree weather in the month of October, how nice!
