Breast Cancer ( Prevention )

Ask Glen!

Q. How do I Prevent Breast Cancer

A. Although there are no guarantees, you can take some steps to help prevent breast cancer:

  • Don't smoke.

  • Maintain a healthy weight.

  • Exercise regularly.

  • Limit your use of alcohol. If you do drink, you may be able to decrease your risk of breast cancer by taking a folate supplement.

  • Follow a healthy diet low in fat and high in cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower).

  • Have your doctor examine your breasts every three years if you are under age 40 and every year if you are over 40.

  • Have regular mammograms. Mammograms can detect breast cancer two to five years before a tumor becomes large enough to be felt as a lump. Women who believe they may be at especially high risk of hereditary breast cancer shoudl consult with a genetic counselor before testing.

Also, researchers have found mutations in two genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 that are associated with hereditary breast cancer. Although blood tests can identify women who have these genetic mutations, researchers have not yet determined who should be screened or what to recommend if the mutations are found.

Any personal health questions or problems mental or physical or before starting any diet or exercise program.Please consult your physician !
Wishing You Great Health!
