Causes of uterine and breast cancer.

Women who spend most of their time at work and at home have a higher risk of developing cervical and breast cancer than others. A recent study by the University of Lunda in Sweden revealed this shocking information the research data was recently presented at the American Association for Cancer Research in Philadelphia.

Researchers have been conducting research on about 29,000 women for 25 years. And then he brought this information publicly. The women under observation ranged in age from 25 to 64 years. They were not initially diagnosed with cancer.

 

The researchers divided the women into three groups. In the first part, there were women who work in the office but do not participate in any sports, in the second part there were women who work in the office and also participate in sports for recreation and in the third part there were working women who have to stand for long hours in need of work and also participate in sports.

The long-term study found that women who spent most of their time at work or in their spare time were 2.4 percent more likely to develop breast and cervical cancer than women who did not work all the time. They have been diagnosed with breast and uterine cancer before the menopause. Researchers have advised working women to do small tasks instead of sitting around all the time. Such as drinking coffee or taking a short walk.

Breast cancer in men: Symptoms and treatment

 

Although the incidence of breast cancer in men is low, its incidence is increasing day by day. But due to lack of awareness among men, this cancer is becoming fatal in many cases. Men have a small amount of dysfunctional breast cells just below the nipple in the chest wall.

Uncontrolled growth of these cells results in breast cancer in men. Breast cancer is common in women but not uncommon in men. In 2010, a total of 1,960 cases of breast cancer were reported among men worldwide. 390 of them died of this cancer.

Diagnosis

Breast cancer is diagnosed by ultrasound and mammography. Testing for the hormones estrogen and progesterone is done with biopsy. Protein tests are also done.

 

Treatment 

Surgery is the main treatment for breast cancer in men. This eliminates the tumor that is formed through uncontrolled cell division. Radiation therapy also runs. It kills cancer cells with high-energy X-rays. Chemotherapy is used to kill cancer cells with injectable drugs. Hormone therapy is also widely used to cure breast cancer in men.
