WHAT IS BREAST CANCER
A cancer that forms in the cells of the breasts. Breast cancer can occur in women and rarely in men. Symptoms of breast cancer include a lump in the breast, bloody discharge from the nipple and changes in the shape or texture of the nipple or breast
Breast cancer develops from breast tissue. Signs of breast cancer may include a lump in the breast, a change in breast shape, dimpling of the skin, fluid coming from the nipple, a newly inverted nipple, or a red or scaly patch of skin. In those with distant spread of the disease, there may be bone pain, swollen lymph nodes, shortness of breath or yellow skin.
When Breast Cancer begins, it produces no symptoms. Signs and symptoms appear as the mass grows or ulcerates. Local symptoms may occur due to the mass of the tumor or its ulceration.
Some hormones play a role in the development of Breast Cancer by promoting cell proliferation. Insulin-like growth factors and their binding proteins play a key role in Breast Cancer cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis, suggesting possible involvement in carcinogenesis.
AUTO-IMMUNE AND GENETICS
There is an association between celiac disease and an increased risk of all Breast Cancers. People with untreated celiac disease have a higher risk, but this risk decreases with time after diagnosis and strict treatment, probably due to the adoption of a gluten-free diet, which seems to have a protective role against development of malignancy in people with celiac disease.
However, the delay in diagnosis and initiation of a gluten-free diet seems to increase the risk of malignancies. Rates of gastrointestinal Breast Cancers are increased in people with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, due to chronic inflammation. Also, immunomodulatory and biologic agents used to treat these diseases may promote developing extra-intestinal malignancies.
Breast Cancer is fundamentally a disease of tissue growth regulation. In order for a normal cell to transform into a Breast Cancer cell, the genes that regulate cell growth and differentiation must be altered.
The affected genes are divided into two broad categories. Oncogenes are genes that promote cell growth and reproduction. Tumor suppressor genes are genes that inhibit cell division and survival. Malignant transformation can occur through the formation of novel oncogenes, the inappropriate over-expression of normal oncogenes, or by the under-expression or disabling of tumor suppressor genes. Typically, changes in multiple genes are required to transform a normal cell into a Breast Cancer cell.
Genetic changes can occur at different levels and by different mechanisms. The gain or loss of an entire chromosome can occur through errors in mitosis. More common are mutations, which are changes in the nucleotide sequence of genomic DNA.
DIAGNOSIS AND PREVENTION
Most Breast Cancers are initially recognized either because of the appearance of signs or symptoms or through screening. Neither of these leads to a definitive diagnosis, which requires the examination of a tissue sample by a pathologist. People with suspected Breast Cancer are investigated with medical tests. These commonly include blood tests, X-rays, CT scans and endoscopy.
The tissue diagnosis from the biopsy indicates the type of cell that is proliferating, its histological grade, genetic abnormalities and other features. Together, this information is useful to evaluate the prognosis and to choose the best treatment.
Breast Cancer prevention is defined as active measures to decrease Breast Cancer risk. The vast majority of Breast Cancer cases are due to environmental risk factors. Many of these environmental factors are controllable lifestyle choices. Thus, Breast Cancer is generally preventable. Between 70% and 90% of common Breast Cancers are due to environmental factors and therefore potentially preventable.
Greater than 30% of Breast Cancer deaths could be prevented by avoiding risk factors including: tobacco, excess weight / obesity, insufficient diet, physical inactivity, alcohol, sexually transmitted infections and air pollution. Not all environmental causes are controllable, such as naturally occurring background radiation and Breast Cancers caused through hereditary genetic disorders and thus are not preventable via personal behavior.
BREAST CANCER SCREENING
Unlike diagnostic efforts prompted by symptoms and medical signs, Breast Cancer screening involves efforts to detect Breast Cancer after it has formed, but before any noticeable symptoms appear. This may involve physical examination, blood or urine tests or medical imaging.
Breast Cancer screening is not available for many types of Breast Cancers. Even when tests are available, they may not be recommended for everyone. Universal screening or mass screening involves screening everyone. Selective screening identifies people who are at higher risk, such as people with a family history. Several factors are considered to determine whether the benefits of screening outweigh the risks and the costs of screening. These factors include:
Possible harms from the screening test: for example, X-ray images involve exposure to potentially harmful ionizing radiation, The likelihood of the test correctly identifying Breast Cancer,
The likelihood that Breast Cancer is present: Screening is not normally useful for rare Breast Cancers, Possible harms from follow-up procedures, Whether suitable treatment is available, Whether early detection improves treatment outcomes, Whether the Breast Cancer will ever need treatment, Whether the test is acceptable to the people: If a screening test is too burdensome
(for example, extremely painful), then people will refuse to participate.
GENETIC TESTING FOR BREAST CANCER
Gene Breast Cancer types
BRCA1, BRCA2 Breast, ovarian, pancreatic
HNPCC, MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, PMS1, PMS2 Colon, uterine, small bowel, stomach, urinary tract.
Genetic testing for individuals at high-risk of certain Breast Cancers is recommended by unofficial groups. Carriers of these mutations may then undergo enhanced surveillance, chemoprevention, or preventative surgery to reduce their subsequent risk.
Many treatment options for Breast Cancer exist. The primary ones include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapy and palliative care. Which treatments are used depends on the type, location and grade of the Breast Cancer as well as the patient’s health and preferences. The treatment intent may or may not be curative.
We, at CITA HEALTH SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH CENTER, offer NON-INVASIVE Diagnosis on State of the Art, latest 21st Century technology to verify the onset or presence of CANCER & Cancer affected areas. Issues related to Breast lumps, tumors, cysts, cancerous, non-cancerous or malignant.
We, run a complete 7000 parameter test which includes AUTO IMMUNE disorders and CHROMOSOMES and issues related to GENETIC disturbances, thus are in a position to guide the client of a future onset or presence of BREAST CANCER and being awarded BEST SCIENTIFIC HEALTHCARE CENTER OF THE YEAR 2017/2018 BY CORPORATE HEALTH GHANA LIMITED AND WEST AFRICA CLINICAL ALLIANCE SPONSORED BY THE AFRICAN MAYOR MAGAZINE AND OTHERS NOTABLE AWARDS is confident of giving positive results in all cases handled by them.
Type of Breast Cancer, and location in the body is not important.
The test thus helps us in taking preventive measures for the disease much before it can show up on the regular physical tests.
We conduct a test to reveal the Genetic component involved in this disease. On having the results for the Genes, Chromosomes, Auto Immune & Breast Cancer specific areas, we are in a position to assess the damage done or possible damage in the near future.
Breast Cancerous cells may be of any type or in any part of the system, makes no difference, the therapy remains the same.
As far as possible we advise to avoid removal of any part from our body. We strongly recommend the LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE therapy, for minimum period of 30 days to clear the morbid material from the Lymphatic system in and around the breast
Basic cause of CANCER is mainly due to GENETIC factors, thus by working on the root cause and stabilizing the GENES, CHROMOSOMES, AUTO-IMMUNE disorders and all parameters related with CANCER, we are in a position to eradicate the CANCER cells without any side effects or danger to client’s life. Information on the spread of cancer cells in the system is important to tackle it from each and every cell / organ which it has invaded.
Main causes of activating CANCER are lack of Oxygen supply, Hypoxia and Acidosis. Once these issues are taken into account for correction along with other related issues instigating / provoking / supporting CANCEROUS Cells we are able to resolve the issue.
We strongly recommend DETOX procedure. Here we strongly recommend the therapy LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE to clear the Lymphatic system in and around the Breasts. This should be started immediately
