Thank you for taking the time to read my Health Forum my poetess, yes, your comment, may be your personal crusade, in regards to why you do not do breast exams and I applaud your natural methods as to how you prefer to breast-feeding your kids versus bottle feeding.
I will advocate that existence it is a great way to bond with baby during post-partum once your body begins making colostrum. It’s highly nutritious and filling and serves as your baby’s first.
I cannot assume what you exactly meant when you stated, as I requote, your partial statement, 'lumps come and go', therefore, I will briefly give you the information for the lumps that do not go away, or must be biopsied, it is best, you categorized, when you say lumps.
As an advocate for Breast Cancer Awareness, I will always advise any woman to be conscientious of her health and be ab ambassador for her own health.
When she is performing her monthly breast exam to be more aware of any swelling of all or part of the breast, skin irritation or dimpling any faint breast pain, nipple pain or the nipple turning inward redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin, a nipple discharge other than breast milk.
Now let’s speak in reference to those lumps that may or may not go away on their own accord, or with the aid of an antibiotic.
Cysts close to the surface of the skin may feel softer, like large unbroken blisters. Those that develop deep in the breast tissue will feel more like firm lumps.
Please take into consideration, breast cysts are most common in woman thirty to the age of fifty they will lessen and then disappear altogether after menopause, however, in some women they are more prone to last through the duration of their life throughout life. In addition, after menopause, breast cysts are more likely to occur if women are taking hormone replacement therapy.
Breast cysts tend to become larger and more tender right before your menstrual period starts. How are cysts diagnosed and treated
Once the suspicions lump has been confirmed your physician may confirm the diagnosis with a mammogram or ultrasound. This is where you will be schedule for a fine-needle aspiration. The procedure details a very fine needle into the cyst and drawing fluid from it (aspiration). Be advised once the fluid is aspirated, the cyst will disappear. Nevertheless, the cyst can reappear later, cysts tend to be non-cancerous (benign).
Abscesses are collections of pus that form in the tissues of the body.
You may not believe in performing breast exams, but for the women, who are being diagnosed with breast cancer and wishing they had utilized some form of preventive measures. (self-breast exams, mammogram, diagnostic mammogram, or a 3D mammogram, then I will always advocate for them).
I will always paise my voice in rejoice when a female has completed six weeks of Chemotherapy, who when tired, nausea, frail, yet can still smile under the duress of localized radiation therapy, blood tests with Oncologist or Hematologist, alopecia has taken her spirit, her courage, to feel fer femininity, to believe she can endure, and not to forget she has to still go to her regular appointments with her medical doctor.
So, therefore, correction, my poetess, not all lumps go away, those frighten discoveries leads maybe to a second opinion, a 3D mammogram, an ultrasound, biopsy, the matter classified as benign or malignant and then if is in malignant then what stage, then a referral to an Oncologist.
White Supremacy has nothing to do with the evolution of Western Medicine Who is the father of Western medicine
Western medicine has its roots in the Western part of the world, namely Greece. Experts credit the Greek physician Hippocrates as being the father of Western medicine. Hippocrates and Hippocratic physicians believed that illnesses were the result of imbalances between blood, black bile, yellow bile and phlegm (what they called “the humors”)
