Breast cancer is one of the terrible disease that can affect a woman. You never know exactly when you are out of danger, or what you should do to prevent this situation. This, despite the fact that information on this subject is in abundance. The truth is, for most women, breasts are the greatest concern when it comes to their bodies. Why such happens? Maybe because it is one of main characteristics of womanhood? After all, the reason is irrelevant.
It is essential to take care of us and do everything we can to keep us healthy. Beyond monthly self-exam, maintaining a lifestyle as healthy and performing periodic mammography screening, are other things that’s good to know. This is because, as you age, you have to keep in mind more and more aspects.
After 30 years …
About woman says at this age is at peak brightness and beauty, and this is true in terms of breasts. One of the most common problems encountered during this period is the emergence of fibrochist (caused due to hormonal imbalance). This should not scare you. Certainly not something pleasant, but do not increase the risk of cancer. Your doctor will set up a treatment and along with it would be good to reduce caffeine intake.
Regarding mammography, this should be done annually – or, if you are in a family with history of breast cancer more frequently than that. The doctor is one who will have the last word regard this. Meanwhile don’t forget the monthly self-exam.  If one of your first-degree relatives (mother or sister) have this problem, you should start your mammograms ten years earlier.
What can you do? If you do sports, is essential to wear a bra to keep breasts fixed (they do not have to “balance” up and down), but not to keep them too tightly. The good news is that, statistically speaking, at this age the risk of getting breast cancer is very low.
At 40 years and later …
As you age, “composition” of the breast, changes gradually. If the first youth consists only in breast tissue, fat percentage is far higher.  Besides this problem, which is ultimately a purely aesthetic order, you can face cystic mastoza. This can sometimes be painful, but if not treated increases the risk of getting cancer. Annual mammograms are now mandatory.
Regarding diet, avoid fat food as possible and, after the doctor advises you in this regard would not be wrong to take a daily supplement of calcium and vitamin D. They have an important role in preventing cancer.
