Track 3: Breast Cancer Screening:-
Breast Cancer Screening: What Is It?
Breast cancer screening refers to examining a woman’s breasts for cancer prior to the onset of any symptoms or indicators of the illness. The appropriate screening choices for each woman must be explained to them by their healthcare professional. It is known as informed and shared decision-making when you are aware about the advantages and disadvantages of screening and decide, in consultation with your healthcare professional, if and when it is appropriate for you.
Breast cancer screening can aid in finding the disease early, when it is simpler to treat, even if it cannot prevent the disease. Find out from your doctor which breast cancer screening procedures are best for you and when to get them.
Recommendations for Breast Cancer Screening:-
The United States Preventive Services Task Force external symbol (USPSTF) is a group of medical professionals and disease specialists who review research on the most effective methods of disease prevention and offer suggestions on how doctors may help people avoid illnesses or detect them early.
Women between the ages of 50 and 74 who are at average risk for breast cancer are advised to undergo a mammogram every two years by the USPSTF external icon. Women between the ages of 40 and 49 should discuss when to begin and how frequently to receive a mammogram with their doctor or other healthcare provider. Before starting mammograms before the age of 50, women should consider the advantages and disadvantages of screening testing.
Screening tests for breast cancer:-
Breast imaging is done with a mammogram. Mammograms are often the most effective technique for women to detect breast cancer early, when it is less difficult to treat and before it has grown large enough to feel or produce symptoms. Regular mammograms can reduce the likelihood of dying from breast cancer. For most women of screening age, a mammography is now the most effective method of detecting breast cancer.
Magnetic Resonance Breast Imaging (MRI):-
A breast MRI takes images of the breast using radio waves and magnets. Women who have a high risk of developing breast cancer are screened using a breast MRI in addition to mammography. For women at medium risk, breast MRIs are not utilised since they may show abnormalities even in the absence of cancer.
Clinician-led breast exam:-
During a clinical breast exam, a doctor or nurse feels the breasts with their hands to check for lumps or other changes.
Self-Awareness of the Breast
It might be easier to spot signs like lumps, soreness, or size changes that may be cause for worry if you are familiar with the way your breasts feel and appear. These could include adjustments discovered through a breast self-exam. To your doctor or other healthcare professional, you should mention any changes you detect.
It has not been discovered that having a clinical breast exam or performing a breast self-exam reduces the chance of dying from breast cancer.
Screening’s advantages and risks:-
Every screening test has advantages and disadvantages, which is why you should see your doctor before having any screening test, such as a mammogram.
