Nowadays, we all know that cancer is a dangerous disease which seems to be cured harder than before. Among all of the cancers, breast cancer is found to be the number-one cancer that women around the world suffer. Because of the higher rate of infection each year, breast cancer is considered a dangerous one. Due to the less awareness, people tend to ignore the proper prevention and get themselves at risk unconsciously. They might think that breast cancer is too far from them, especially when their families have no medical history on this disease before. However, the truth is everyone is able to face this cancer – both male and female. And even though many medical technologies have been developed specifically for this disease, these still cannot guarantee that the patients will totally be safe from the cancer as it also depends on personal factors such as health conditions and stage of the cancer.
As previously mentioned about the family’s medical history, genetic risk factor is not the only possible cause of breast cancer. Some bad behaviors and continual medication use are also the interesting ones to concern. Women who have no baby and have never breastfed before are at higher risks. Nevertheless, there is no research confirming what actually causes the breast cancer. All we can do is guessing and avoiding all the possible causes. One thing that we can be sure is this deadly disease is a secret killer in women!
Talking about breast cancer treatments, there are many options available for the patients today. Mostly, chemotherapy is recommended for this kind of cancer, but not all patients can get this treatment. Anyway, its side effects are quite terrifying, especially for the young women. Nausea, vomiting, hair fall, anaemia and beriberi are just the beginning symptoms to deal with after the chemotherapy. Many people feel exhausted and are not able to eat. It is a very tough moment for ones who experience the treatment. In some cases, mastectomy is needed when the cancerous cells are on the dangerous stage. Nonetheless, it cannot assure that the cancerous cells are gone; follow-up visits are still needed. The effects after that are much more than just the pain. As breasts are the sign of femininity, many women also lose their confidence and pride of their beauty. Though it is true that the prosthesis can solve this matter, it cannot replace the natural breasts they had anyway. Moreover, losing breasts might affect a lot on their dream of having a baby. Some people are afraid that this cancer will be transferred to their babies through the gene, and others might feel that it would be too hard to breastfeed the baby. For mothers, this is heartbroken when you see the baby cries but you cannot feed him/her by your own. Your life will completely change! However, the breast implant surgery nowadays can help you deal with this matter and at least bring back a few of the lost confidence.
The stunning point about the breast cancer rate is the fact that many people don’t know they have this cancer until it has already spread to other parts of their bodies or we call “Stage 5” which might be too late to cure. Therefore, a yearly physical checkup is a recommended protection you all can do to seek for the abnormal cells and get yourself on the treatment earlier! Learn about breast cancer today to learn about ways to save your life!

To have big beautiful breasts, doing the breast surgery is normally the most popular choice women usually pick. However, having these implants means you have to spend more time with the breast nourishment, especially for the first three months after the surgery. One issue that women with breast implants might find is the breast cancer detection. While other women are able to detect the breast cancer by doing the mammograms only, this method actually cannot determine the cancerous cells beneath the implants. It is very important to inform the doctor first if you have done the breast implants before, so he can provide you more proper tests. Remember everyone, having sexy, beautiful breasts does not mean your breasts are safe from this deadly disease. Regular breast checks are still needed. Generally, breast biopsy is a procedure that will be recommended if the mammogram signals some suspicious parts for searching the lump and cancerous cells in the implanted breasts!
What is breast biopsy and why you should do it?
Breast biopsy is performed by removing some suspicious tissues or cut out parts of the lump for checking the cancerous cells. Ultrasound is sometimes used to help guide the doctor where the exact suspicious area is, but x-rays and mammograms are normally supported methods many doctors rely on. Then, the cut part will be examined under the microscope by a specialist called “pathologist” to find out whether there are cancerous cells in it or not. There are three types of biopsies available now: fine-needle aspiration, core-needle biopsy and surgical biopsy. However, the fine-needle aspiration can help diagnose the breast cancer in most cases. Surgical biopsy is rarely chosen as the doctor has to do the surgery for getting into the abnormal area and cut out the entire lump to perform the test which is quite scary for many women. Nevertheless, it is the effective way to guarantee that you are safe from the cancer and reduce risks on letting the cancerous cells spread as the lump has been brought out.Therefore, you will be able to get the actual result of the detection and gain more opportunities to get treatmentsin earlier by doing the biopsy. Actually, women who have never done the breast implants before can also do the biopsy if their breasts are too dense for the mammograms to search for the cancer.
What is your breast appearance after the biopsy?
For women with the breast implants, sagging condition and smaller breast size might be the side effects they are afraid of. The truth is the doctor will try best to bring out just a little breast tissue for the test and leave you with very tiny lesion which is expected to fade away as the time goes by. However, the amount of breast tissues the doctor cut out must reflect on changes of your breast look. After the biopsy (all types of biopsies), it is normal if your breast is bleeding or swelling. During this, you may notice that the biopsied side becomes bigger. Don’t worry as these conditions will gradually disappear as your breast is healed. Even though the doctor indicates that you are safe from the cancer, follow-up visits are necessary as some treatments or medications might be needed. And do not think that it is a waste of time if the result shows no signal of the cancer. The breast biopsy is a great breast cancer diagnosis that is surely worth your time! Apart from the beauty of your breasts, healthiness is also a necessary factor to concern if you don’t want to lose your breasts!

There are several things that can affect the health of the vagina. Let’s learn as below!
The first thing is sex. Women can get an infection that was sexually transmitted to them. This is going to happen when they have unprotected sex with an unknown partner. Also, if there is an injury to the pelvic area that will cause vaginal trauma, it can cause a woman to get an infection in the area around her vagina.
The second thing is certain types of health conditions or treatments for these conditions. If a woman has endometriosis or a pelvic inflammatory disease, then more than likely she is going to experience some pain during sex. Another cause of pain during sex is the scarring from a pelvic surgery. Also if the woman had treatment for cancer, she could also experience painful sex. Sometimes if the woman has taken some antibiotics, it can cause her to have a vaginal yeast infection which could lead to vaginal odor and discharge.
The third thing is the use of birth control and feminine hygiene products. A woman can develop a vaginal irritation if she uses the barrier contraceptives like condoms, spermicide, and diaphragms. If a woman uses a tampon for more than 8 hours, it can cause her to get toxic shock syndrome. This is a complication of a bacterial infection that is rare but it could be very life threatening.
The fourth thing is pregnancy and childbirth. When a person becomes pregnant, then she’s no longer going to have a menstrual cycle until after the baby is born. Even though the woman is pregnant, there will still be an increase in vaginal discharge. It is very common for a woman to have a vaginal tear when she is giving birth to her child. Then if the child is having problems coming out, the doctor might have to do an episiotomy. This is where there is an incision made in the tissues that are between the opening of the vagina and the anus. The muscle tone of the vagina can often decrease when a woman has a vaginal delivery.
The fifth thing is psychological issues. Often when a woman suffers from anxiety or depression, then she’s probably going to have a low level of arousal. This could result in some discomfort or even pain during sexual intercourse. Another thing that is associated with pain during sex is sexual abuse or a sexual experience that was initially painful.
The sixth thing is a woman’s hormone levels. When a woman starts to have changes in the levels of hormones, this can affect the vagina. A woman is going to see a decrease in the amount of estrogen when she is going through menopause and when she is breastfeeding her baby. This loss of estrogen can cause the vaginal lining to become thin. This is known as vaginal atrophy and can also make sex to be more painful.
The seventh thing is a sexually transmitted infection. These infections include gonorrhea, genital warts, chlamydia, genital herpes, and syphilis.
The eighth thing is vaginitis. This is when a woman is going through a change in the normal balance of the vaginal yeast and bacteria or she gets an infection. This can cause the vagina to become inflamed. Some of the symptoms that a woman needs to look for is the pain, discharge from the vagina, odor, or itching. And there are three different types of vaginitis: yeast infections, trichomoniasis, and bacterial vaginosis.
So to prevent vaginal problems and stay a healthy vagina, it’s important to learn the cause and take care of your vagina well girls.

Breasts are an important body part in women. They are a symbol of maternal love, femininity, and sexuality. Breasts are exposed to the risks of infections, soreness, cysts, cancer and sagging. A proper breast care is necessary to prevent them from these problems. Here are simple ways to improve your breast health.
Engage in Physical Exercises
Exercise helps in bringing out the good natural shape of breasts and also prevents them from diseases. Engaging in physical activity decreases the amount of estrogen and allows your whole body to detoxify. It does not have to involve heavy workouts at the gyms but rather a few minutes jogging, and walking can help a great way. Workouts lessen the risk of breast cancer by 30%.
Take Healthy Diet
Eating healthy is not only essential for healthy breasts but the overall good health. It is important to reduce the intake of foods that cause acidity and inflammation in the body, e.g., simple carbohydrates, high-glycemic foods and processed sugars. Avoid foods with chemicals in them and genetically modified foods at all cost. The recommended diet should consist of healthy fats, good quality proteins, nutrient dense foods and a lot of vegetables.
Wear the Right Bra
Breasts need appropriate support to prevent sagging that comes as a result of overstretched ligaments. Whether big or small, all breasts have their right bra size. The right bra should be firm and fitting. It shouldn’t be too tight or loose. Tight bras prevent the free flow of lymph channels around the breasts. Women should wear more of cotton bras and avoid push up bras with under- wires.
Don’t Wear Bras All The time
Bras are necessary for supporting the breasts, but they can also be harmful if worn all the time. One cannot avoid wearing a bra when stepping out of the house but can avoid them when going to bed or when just relaxing in the house. Letting the breasts loose allows for free blood stream and detoxifies breast tissues.
Alcohol is not good for your breasts health because of its connection with breast cancer. For those who cannot avoid alcohol, they should take a maximum of 1 drink only in a day.
Avoid Harmful Beauty Products
A large number of beauty products in the stores contain toxic chemicals which are associated with health complications. For example, parabens are leading in causing breast cancer growths. When purchasing lotions, shampoos, and deodorants, one should be careful not to buy those with toxic substances. Products from companies such as St. Herb Cosmetics are approved and of quality standard.
Smoking causes cancer and should be avoided altogether.
Any gain in weight comes with bigger breast size causing the skin around the breast to overstretch and saggy. Being overweight raises the chances of breast cancer because of the increased production of estrogen. It also interferes with hormonal balance which is directly related to breasts which are part of the reproductive system. Engaging in regular body exercise and eating well is the key to maintain an average weight.
Do Breast Massage
It helps in flushing away body toxins and also improves the blood flow. When massaging your breasts, concentrate on under the armpit where lymph nodes exist. A regular breast massage is essential to drain the lymphatic system, to strengthen the ligaments and help the venous system function efficiently.
If you are a mother, then be aware that breastfeeding is good for your breasts. Breastfeeding lowers the level of estrogen in the body, and this reduces the risk of breast diseases. In fact, twelve months of breastfeeding reduces the risk of breast cancer by 4.1%.
So you’ve known the tips for your breast care now. Start doing today and you can maintain your healthy and beautiful breasts!

For some reasons, firm breasts are more appealing than loose ones. Women tend to lose the firmness of their breasts with time because of various factors. The most common factors for sagging breasts are genetics, pregnancy, age, gravity and even breastfeeding. The effects of these factors differ from one woman to another.
– Some ladies have connective tissues that can withstand gravity. So, it would take longer for their breasts to sag as a result of gravitational forces. Breasts of women who don’t wear might sag due to continuous exposure to so much gravity.
– During breastfeeding, the breasts contract and expand regularly. Consequently, this affects their firmness.
– Menopause is another reason for sagging of breasts. In this phase, the amount of estrogen reduces significantly and this affects breast tissues.
– The skin loses its elasticity as we grow older. In older women, the skin can’t support the breasts as well as it did during their youthful years.
– Weight loss can also make breasts sag as the fat surrounding them reduces when they shed off some pounds. The chest possesses glandular tissues that determine the level of firmness of the breasts. When these tissues stretch, the bosom will lose its firmness.
Aside from the regular sagging, there’s also premature sagging, which is common after losing weight and pregnancy. The Cooper’s ligament in young women suspends and supports the breasts properly. However, it loses its efficiency when the breast size changes during pregnancy. After the breastfeeding period is over, the ligament might fail to regain its full functionality.
There are several breast-firming techniques. Those who stand to benefit from these methods include aging women, women who’ve lost a lot of weight and nursing moms. Many women are conscious about their looks. In the case of aging women, they aware that loose breasts make them appear older. So, they might want to make their bosom firmer. Other kinds of women who may benefit from breast firming techniques are those who have removed their implants.
So, how can a lady enhance her breast’s firmness? Like any other parts of the body, breasts can wear and tear. Nonetheless, you can use various methods to maintain the health of your bosom.
– It’s advisable to take precautionary measures such as wearing a bra during sports, pregnancy as well as breastfeeding.
– Women should engage in breast exercises that tighten the pectoral muscles. Tight chest muscles will make the breast tissues stronger. Exercises are an easy and safe way to maintain your bust size.
– Breast-firming products are also ideal for women with sagging or loose breasts. In today’s market, there are many kinds of firming products. Some are genuine while others aren’t. It’s always a good idea to shop from a reputable vendor. These products include sprays, cream, lotions, oils and pills. To maintain the breast’s firmness, the products enhance the growth of the tissues surrounding the breast. Every day, cosmetic companies are introducing unique and high-quality breast-firming products.
– Other ways to boost your breast’s firmness include using breast pumps and implants. Breast pumps make the chest rigid. They consist of cups, which operate on a pumping mechanism. Users are required to wear the caps over their breasts. The vacuum generating device on the caps sucks out the air in the caps to increase the pressure. This process improves the blood circulation around the chest, thereby making the breast firmer. Also, the pump helps in reduction of toxins in the breasts. To use implants, you’ll have to undergo a surgical procedure. They make the bosom appear more round and firm. This procedure is ideal for all ages and should be performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon. By the way, before settling for implants, it’s recommended that you try other breast-firming techniques.

What are breast cysts?
It is a sac filled with fluid in a woman’s breast. A breast may develop one or numerous cysts. They are usually oval or round lumps with edges that are distinct. The texture of breast cyst feels like a balloon filled with water or a soft grape. Sometimes the cyst feels solid.
Breast cysts may be painful and cause distress but are usually benign. Benign refers to a condition, growth, or tumor that isn’t cancerous. Breast cysts normally become detectable as lump within the breast are discovered by luck during an x-ray of the breast.
They are often found in women who are in their thirty’s or forty’s. Usually, they will go away after women experience menopause. They may reappear or persist when one uses hormone therapy. They may also affect young women who are going through adolescence.
Treating the breast cysts isn’t necessary except when they are causing discomfort, or they are painful. Usually, the discomfort caused may be relieved by draining the cyst’s fluid. Some women may experience pain in the breast, especially when engaging in physical activity that is vigorous. A properly fitted sports bra, which encapsulates breast tissue or compresses breast is meant to reduce pain caused when exercise.
The breast cysts may form because of milk glands growth, and cysts size can range from larger size to smaller size. During an examination, large cysts might feel like lumps, and small cysts can’t be felt. Most breast cysts, despite their size, can’t be identified when doing a physical examination.
Breast cysts symptoms include:
1. A soft, easy to move oval or round lump with edges that are distinct
2. Discharge from the nipple that can be straw colored, clear, dark brown or yellow
3. Breast tenderness or pain in the lump area
4. Increased tenderness in breast and breast lump size just when one is about to get her period
5. The size of the breast lump decreases and a resolution of different symptoms after one’s menstrual
Breast cysts will not increase your breast cancer risk. But developing cysts can make it harder to detect breast lump that is new or some other changes that may require your doctor’s evaluation. Know your breasts so that you will notice when there’s a change in them.
Experts don’t know the causes of breast cysts. They may develop because of hormonal changes from the monthly period. Some evidence says that the excess estrogen in a woman’s body can stimulate the tissue of the breast and contribute to breast cysts.
Specialists say that one can prevent breast cyst development to some extent. The measures recommended requiring a person to avoid the cysts formation include eating a diet that’s balanced, avoiding stress, taking required supplements and vitamins, doing exercise, practicing good health and avoiding certain medications.
Although the consumption of caffeine doesn’t have a connection that is scientifically proven with the development of cyst, women say that their signs and symptoms are reduced when they avoid it. Other doctors recommend decreasing the caffeine amount in your diet for both foods and beverages.
Also decreasing the intake of salt can help in relieving the signs and symptoms of breast cysts. Excessive consumption of sugar and food allergies that are undetected, such as lactose or gluten, may contribute to the development of breast cyst.
A cool or warm compress can provide relief when the cysts are painful. Also, one can apply a pack of ice to relieve the pain.
It is estimated that 7 percent of western women develop palpable breast cysts. In males, breast cysts occurrence is rare and may be a sign of malignancy.

It is every woman’s responsibility to make sure that her breasts stay healthy no matter her age and this way a woman is able to tell which changes are normal and which are not. Because of the above reason in this article, we shall look at ways to make sure you as a woman keep your breasts healthy.
Exercising helps reduce the fat in the body. According to Science, fat cells usually produce estrogen in high quantities which is risky since some cancers have been linked to estrogen hormone. Exercising makes the fat cells to shrink which result to them producing a low level of estrogen. It is recommendable to have a moderate-intensity exercise for one fifty minutes every week. For those women with a tight schedule, they can have a high-intensity exercise for seventy-five minutes every week.
Indulge in some Chocolate
Research has shown that the dark chocolate contains some compound which helps fight fast-growing cancer. According to Richard Pestell who is the Kimmel Cancer Center Director, the compound in the dark chocolate combines with the enzymes, which result in cancerous cells dying.
Drink Less Alcohol
More than 53 studies have shown that women who usually take three drinks every day have 1.5 more chances of developing breast cancer compared to women who do not take alcohol. It is recommendable for a woman to have one or less than one drink a day .i.e. five ounces of wine, one and a half ounces of hard drink or twelves ounces of beer.
Get Enough Folic Acid
For you to give your body folic acid you can eat the folate which is a form of folic acid that occurs naturally. When your body lacks enough folic acid, it results in the body suffering from impaired ability to repair DNA. A woman with damaged DNA is more likely to suffer from cancer. Food such as black-eyed peas, grains, folic-fortified cereals, and spinach are known to contain folate. It is recommendable to take around four hundred micrograms of folate daily.
Get a Good Sleep
Good sleep helps you avoid exposing your breasts to much light at night. Light is known to suppress the level of melatonin. It is dangerous when the level of melatonin is suppressed since melatonin plays a role in regulating the level of estrogen. It is advisable for a woman to get seven to eight hours of sleep every night.
Eat more Vegetables and Fruits
Eating vegetables and fruits is one way to effectively curb cancer. Research conducted recently shows that veggies and fruits help prevent cancer by lowering the chances of your body producing estrogen receptors which are known to cause negative breast tumors. Fruits and veggies have carotenoids which act as antioxidants and that’s why they are so effective. According to USDA, half of your plate should be vegetables and fruits.
Massage Your Breasts
The muscles and veins in your breasts are just like other muscles in the other parts of the body and they tend to strain especially when you are not in a comfortable position. For this reason, it is recommendable to massage your breasts which help the blood to circulate freely hence the normal function of the breasts. It also helps relieve or cure any pain that you may be feeling.
Never Ignore any Pain
In case you feel some pain or any sort of discomfort that continues to persist for some time, please do not ignore it. Make sure to see your doctor so as to determine the problem. One thing for a fact, the earlier you discover any illness the easier it will be for you to fight it. As I conclude, always take care of your breasts since they will play a major role in the health of your future or current baby.
