Advanced Technology of the Treatment of Breast Cancer This year 203,000 women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer, and 40,000 of them are expected to die. Breast Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death among women the ages of 35-54. There are numerous ways breast cancer can be treated if found early. The key to treating breast cancer is early detection, beast self-exams, and early mammograms. One out of every eight women will get diagnosed with Breast Cancer this year; therefore, new advanced technology of the treatment of Breast Cancer is the key to life after the disease.
Breast Cancer is a disease that can sometime lead to ovarian cancer and has caused a lot of women’s death. “About five to ten percent of breast cancer cases are thought to be hereditary, meaning that they result from gene defects called mutations inherited from a parent”. Related Risks early menstruation, oral contraceptives and child bearing 20 percent. (1)An environmental risk is that toxins can damage breast DNA. Over time damaged DNA can lead to cancer.
(american cancer society, 2014) Women needs to know how she can reduce breast cancer and what she can do to reduce the risk factor of breast cancer. There are some risk factors than cannot change and risk factors that can be change. Risk factors like gender of women, age and genetic factors that cannot be change and being overweight, Cigierate smoking, eating junky foods are the factors that can change by the choice of women (breast cancer organization, 2014). 2.2.3 Breast cancer in world wide Breast cancer is the one of the most common diagnosed cancer in the worldwide and breast cancer is the most leading cause of cancer death among the female’s , 1.38 million people accounting for 23% of the entire fresh cancer cases and in 2008 there are 458,400 people died ... ... middle of paper ... ...er related illness and deaths. The low survival rate of young women in breast cancers have been informed due to identified in advanced stages.
Approximately 2 out of 3 women are at risk of developing breast cancer who are older than 55 (American Cancer Society, 2014). To decrease this rate, women need more timely follow ups and access to high quality treatments (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2015). Men can develop breast cancer, but this disease is more common among women than men. (American Cancer Society, 2015). There are numerous risk factors for breast cancer.
In today’s society, one of the main diseases affecting women is breast cancer. Cancer is defined as disease in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade other tissues (“What is Cancer?”). Breast cancer is most often caused by either a woman’s genetics or through the influence of lifestyle choices. Breast cancer remains one of the major concerns in the medical field, mainly because it has many forms and happens to strike a large number of women. However, over the last few decades, diagnosing and treating breast cancer has rapidly evolved and improved.
These recent studied also shows there is a larger percentage of women getting breast cancer at an earlier age in life. Many researchers and doctors believe this is due to increase industrialization exposure, negative lifestyle choices and thei... ... middle of paper ... ...likely to get breast cancer than all other race. Breast cancer is one of the most terrible types of cancer. The first noticeable indication of breast cancer is typically a lump in the breast. This lump feels different from the rest of the breast tissue.
Almost 90% of all breast cancer begins in the ducts and lobes of the mammary glands (Bartholomew). Breast cancer is a type of cancer where cells in the breast divide and grow without normal control. By the time a lump is big enough to feel, it may have been growing for at least ten years, and by that time, it is harder to control how fast the cancer will grow or spread to other parts of the breast, and maybe even other parts of the body. Studies have shown that in the United States alone, around 192,370 new cases of breast cancer will occur in one year. An estimated 40,170 women die from breast cancer each year.
New Treatments for Breast Cancer Breast Cancer affects one in eight of American women, and is the second most common cause of cancer death in America. I chose to write my term paper on breast cancer because it is a disease that has effected some members of my family. Due to this possibly inherited condition, I felt that researching the topic would help me learn ways to prevent the disease and educate myself to perform self-exams that may result in early detection. Breast cancer is a malignant tumor in the glandular tissues of the breast. Such tumors, also called carcinomas, form when the chemical processes that control normal cell growth break down, enabling a single abnormal cell to multiply at a rapid rate (Hickman).
It is a disease that does not distinguish between race, religion and social status. In more recent cases, many young women are being diagnosed with aggressive forms of breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer found in women today; without the proper knowledge, prevention, and treatment of the disease, it will continue to affect women and few men in the community. The research paper will be based on three key points of interest; (1) Understanding breast cancer; (2) Staging and proper diagnosis of breast cancer; (3) Medical advances in preventions and cures. It will address the many causes and risks factors, a scientific system for diagnosing, as well as showcase any new treatments that may be beneficial to the cancer community.
In this paper I plan to discuss the causes of breast cancer, why so many women with breast cancer are uninsured, what the health reform will do for women with breast cancer, and where uninsured women can go for screening or prevention. Today 1 out of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer (Cancer Care). So why are so many women being diagnosed with breast cancer? Could it be that today many women are starting to get screened earlier for breast cancer than years ago? With new technology and younger women being screened earlier, doctors are doing a better job at detecting breast cancer.
