Advice from a mammalogist
Each doctor mammologist warns about the risk factors that may lead to problems in the future in the mammary gland.
Injury of the mammary gland. The main danger is that at the site of the trauma later malignant tumors can form. Therefore, we must try to protect the chest from blows, bruises, etc. In the event that the injury was not avoided, it is necessary to consult a mammologist, perhaps he will find it necessary to undergo a more complete examination.
Infections. Frequent inflammatory processes of the female reproductive system lead to a disruption of the hormonal balance. For any hormonal changes, the breast reacts immediately. Soreness, swelling of the mammary glands before menstruation, the appearance of nodules - this all happens as a result of hormonal failure. In the end, this leads to mastopathy.
The pathology in the mammary gland comes from an infection that is betrayed from the genitals, it can be in the body in a "dormant" state, until there is an opportune time for its development. Chronic inflammations in the mammary gland are of great danger, which have the property of acquiring a malignant form.
Late childbirth. The first pregnancy, which occurred after 30 years, promotes the development of cancerous tumors in the mammary gland. Most likely, the reason for this is poor ecology, the impact of toxic substances that are contained in urban air. As a result of external factors in the cells, the ability to respond normally to the hormonal burst, which invariably accompanies pregnancy, is weakened.
Oral contraception. There have been many studies in this field and it is proved that oral contraceptives do not provoke cancer tumors in the mammary gland. However, it is also proven that long-term use of birth control pills (more than four years) in nulliparous women can lead to the development of malignant tumors. Therefore, girls who have not yet given birth should find a different method of contraception and not abuse oral contraception.
Radiation. According to medical experts, the radiation radiation to which a woman under 30 is exposed provokes a cancerous process in the mammary gland. X-ray examination, which is usually administered no more often than once a year, has a dose that is safe for a person, but still the doctor must record the radiation dose every time in the medical card so that the maximum threshold is not exceeded in the future.
Ultraviolet. The skin around the breast is very tender, thin, lightly concealed. The mammologist recommends taking sunbaths (sunbathing) in the morning (before 1000) or in the evening (after 1600) hours. If it happened that you were in the sun at noon, then you need to protect your chest with a special tanning agent with a high filter.
Diet. The main cause of problems in the mammary gland, it is primarily hormonal failure in the body. There are some foods that increase the level of estrogen. It is necessary to avoid smoked, fatty foods, replacing them with vegetables, cereal products, citrus fruits. There are data according to which the painful state of the breast before menstruation is caused by products with a high content of methylxanthine (coffee). Replacing the morning coffee with a cup of tea (preferably green), will reduce the soreness of the chest.
The mammologist warns that systematic preventive examination is the main method of early diagnosis of the pathological processes in the chest. All questions and problems can be discussed at the reception with a qualified doctor, get all information about prevention, about possible risks and complications.
