Cancer is sadly very common and someone or the other is being diagnosed with breast cancer. Studies say that 1 out of the 8 women will be diagnosed with cancer in their course of life. But, it obviously can be prevented.

Let’s look at some of the cancer facts that everyone should know about:

  1. 1 Even men can have breast cancer


    We have this perception that only females have breast cancer. But, this is not true. Because even though men don't have breasts like females, they do have breast tissue which might get some males breast cancers.

  2. 2 Breast cancer looks and feels like


    Cancer does not necessarily show symptoms by displaying lumps. Sometimes the lumps can be invisible or sometimes the other indications shown above might be displayed.

  3. 3 Use opposite hand to check


    The most common mistake that women make while checking if they have lumps in their breast is that they use the right hand to check the right breast and left hand to check their left breast.

    You should do the opposite. That way, you could stretch your right hand upwards while checking your right breast with the help of your left hand and it would be easier to detect lumps.

  4. 4 Family history of disease


    If your close blood relative(individual's parents, siblings)  have had cancer, it does increase your risk of developing cancer. But it does not mean that you would definitely develop it. 

    Studies say that 80% of breast cancer patients do not have a close blood relative who had the disease. It can be non-hereditary too!

  5. 5 Go to check your breasts once a month


    The best time to go for checking up would be a few days after your periods. 

  6. 6 Breast cancer preventions


    Limit your alcohol consumption, don't smoke, maintain a healthy weight, exercise! Yes, this does sound parentish. But our parents are right. 

    These could help you prevent breast cancer.

  7. 7 We can fight breast cancer


    In recent years,  the survivors of breast cancers are increasing. Timely treatment is the key to fight cancer.

    If you notice any change in your breast, please don't hesitate to go for a treatment. Prevention is definitely better than cure. Isn't it?
