Breast Cancer

General Promotion

Breast cancer is a disease that occurs as a result of a tumor that occurs due to the change and uncontrolled proliferation of one of the cell groups that make up the breast tissue.

The cancerous tissue first spreads to its immediate surroundings and then to the lymph nodes close to the breast. In patients who are not diagnosed and treated on time, the cancer spreads to other organs and passes into an incurable stage.

The incidence of breast cancer has increased considerably in recent years. According to statistics on a global scale, the incidence of breast cancer is estimated to be around 40-50 per 100000.

In addition, according to US data, the probability of developing breast cancer in a woman's lifetime is expressed as 1/8. Although the incidence increases with advancing age, there are some ways to prevent breast cancer:

  • To stay away from cancer-causing substances such as cigarettes and alcohol,
  • Eating healthy and exercising regularly,
  • Taking care to maintain the ideal weight,
  • Breastfeeding for the first 6 months for mothers who have a baby,
  • Not being a mother at a very late age,
  • Paying attention to the use of hormonal drugs.
