Suggested Questions And Answer :


breast cancer risk

Although there is family history, it isn't very close (mother, sister)and it isn't all breast cancer. Scar tissue can interfere with future imagery and there are more types than mammogram in use in the detection of abnormalities in the breast. Ultrasound is often used as well as breast MRI and most tests can differentiate between scar tissue and other abnormal findings. General risk is 1 in 8 in a lifetime but many factors have to be considered to be any more definite than that. I see no reason why you should not have the breast reduction if that's what you desire.    Best wishes ....

Breast cancer Vs Ovarian cancer

Hi.  Breast cancer and ovarian cancer are two very different and distinct disease entities and are not really comparable even if they are of the same stage.  This is because there are so many factors other than the stage, which determines severity and lethality in breast and ovarian cancer.  For example, increased levels of the human epidermal growth factor receptor Her-2 is a big factor in determining a poorer prognosis and more severe disease in breast cancer.  But it is not a prognostic factor at all in ovarian cancer.  Nor is there a molecule of comparative prognostic significance in ovarian cancer. I suppose that in terms of absolute lethality, breast cancer is the more severe disease.  It causes nearly 400,000 deaths in the United States yearly, compared to around 15,000 deaths per year for ovarian cancer.

risk of ovarian cancer with breast cancer

Hi There!  I believe and someone correct me if I am wrong, usually if your genetic testing of the BRCA gene is +++ then you are at a higher risk of getting ovarian/uterine cancer along with your breast cancer.  Mine was - so they did not indicate removal of those organs.  Do you know if you had this testing done?  I am also HER2+, Stage 1, Grade 3, no nodes, caught early as well, chemo/lumpectomy/radiation and Herceptin.  I am going to finish Herceptin finally in January 2011.  My next mammo is 12/1 same day I was diagnosed last year.  Anyway, I panic almost daily about the risk of recurrence as it is very scary.  Too much to read about recurrence.  I also hate to be a worrier, but we just can't help it.  GOOD LUCK - Sandra

breast cancer again?

Hi.  The pain around the mastectomy site may be part of a condition called "post-mastectomy pain syndrome".  This is a condition where pain without any apparent cause occurs intermittently around the mastectomy site.  The pain is from nerves around the area which have been damaged during the mastectomy.  Medication such as ibuprofen or tramadol, in combination with drugs effective for neuropathic pain (pain caused by nerve damage) such as neurontin or lyrica may help alleviate this condition.   There is a possibility that the pain is a sign of cancer recurrence (particularly, bone/ rib metastases), and this should be investigated.  A bone scan or a chest CT may need to be done.

Mastectomy, Ovary Removal Reduce Some Cancer Risk and Mortality

Good post! And here is a summary of a related article that recently appeared in JAMA: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Benefits of Risk-Reducing Surgeries in BRCA Carriers Estimated Women with BRCA mutations who undergo prophylactic mastectomy or salpingo-oophorectomy reduce their risks for breast and ovarian cancer, according to an observational study in JAMA. Researchers studied some 2500 women with BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations. About half of the patients underwent risk-reducing surgery. After a median 3.5 years' follow-up, the following results were noted: None of the women who underwent mastectomy had breast cancer events during follow-up, versus 7% of those who did not have surgery. Similarly, prophylactic salpingo-oophorectomy was associated with lower risk for ovarian cancer. Salpingo-oophorectomy was also associated with decreased risk for breast cancer in both BRCA1 (hazard ratio, 0.63) and BRCA2 (HR, 0.36) carriers. In addition, salpingo-oophorectomy was associated with lower all-cause mortality among those with and without prior breast cancers. Editorialists suggest that primary care clinicians familiarize themselves with the American Society of Clinical Oncology guidelines "and should be able to refer at-risk patients to a genetic counselor." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- bluebutterfly

Symptons of breast cancer?

Hi, From what you describe,the pain you are experiencing( in my opinion),sounds more like a pulled muscle rather than a breast problem.If you are right handed,try not to overuse that arm for a while, to give the muscle a chance to heal.Applying a warm pad on your back can help in the healing process. If it's not a pulled muscle, pain in the breast is almost never indicative of breast cancer. Mastalgia (breast pain) is the most common breast-related complaint in women and most of these complaints are cyclic in nature.(Hormonal fluctuation)Analgesics and supportive bras may be helpful to minimize the pain.Some women may find relief by using oil of primrose (3 grams a day). Elimination of caffeine, chocolate or salt from the diet can also be helpful. At your  young age it's normal to have lumpy breasts and if you feel that you have a lump,that wasn't there before,it's very wise of you to see your doctor for a clinical breast exam.The lump(if it's really a lump) could be a cyst or a fibroadenoma(both benign) which could also cause you pain.An Ultrasound would be valuable to find out if a lump is a cyst or a solid one. Take care and best wishes...

Cancer spreading from the breast - ovaries- now liver

Hi, Are there any specific questions that you have? You could look up breast cancer metastasis or talk to your doctor about any queries or doubts that you have or post us. The ovarian cancer would not be due to breast metastasis most probably. Breast cancer can spread to other parts of the body via blood vessels or the lymphatic system. So it can spread to the lungs, pleura, liver, brain, and most commonly to the bones. Regards.
