Breast Cancer Center

Mei 20th, 2016

In April 2016, Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou established a “breast cancer center” for breast cancer treatment, bringing together a multidisciplinary team of experts, and introducing advanced treatment techniques, and continuing breast cancer research to further enhance the success rate, or even completely cure in early-stage breast cancer.

Treatment of early-stage breast cancer has better prognosis

Breast cancer is one of the solid tumors that is considered easiest to treat, as long as it was detected and treated early. The 5-year cure rate of Breast Cancer Stage I is 90% to 95%, while it is 70% to 80% for Breast Cancer Stage II, 50% to 60% for Stage III and below 10% for Stage IV. As seen from the data, early treatment of breast cancer is very effective, and the hazards of breast cancer in the latter stage are very great. However, since the symptoms of breast cancer in the early stage is not obvious, many patients tend to ignore them and do not undergo breast cancer screening, and even if they were diagnosed, they also refused treatment, and ultimately wait for it to turn into late stage where they can feel the pain and in the brink of death that they will decide to seek for treatment. Director of the “Breast Cancer Center,” Dai Wenyan mentioned that breast cancer awareness in very important thus the Breast Cancer Center was establish complete with a breast cancer screening system, Multi-disciplinary team of doctors for consultation, and focusing on early breast cancer detection, diagnosis and treatment, utilizing advance technologies to minimize pain and cost and ultimately to achieve the purpose of early breast cancer cure.

A variety of advanced technology, the perfect defense against breast cancer

For the treatment of advanced breast cancer, the Breast Cancer Center also adheres to the same principle of minimum pain and the least cost. According to Director Dai, the Breast Cancer Center mainly utilizes minimally invasive treatment with breast reconstruction as the technical main treatment. The minimally invasive techniques provide another option besides the traditional “surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy,” providing less trauma, less toxic side effects, and quicker recovery. Breast reconstruction can be used for patients who have undergone radical mastectomy. This can help patients maintain their ideal body image and boost their confidence. These technologies are designed to meet the patients wish to preserve their breast. “In practicing medicine for many years, I have seen many lost their lives because they do not want to lose their breast. Today, as the director of the Breast Cancer Center, I can tell breast cancer patients, do not deny yourself treatment because of you will lose your breast, here at Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, we will provide you the most appropriate treatment.

Pengobatan Minimal Invasif Kanker Payudara

Mei 3rd, 2016

Seiring dengan perkembangan teknologi medis, kanker payudara yang merupakan jenis kanker yang banyak ditemukan pada kaum wanita telah memasuki “Era Pengobatan Minimal Invasif”. Teknologi minimal invasif yang sudah banyak diterapkan di China telah menarik banyak pasien kanker untuk menjalani pengobatan di China.

Teknologi minimal invasif meliputi Intervensi, Cryosurgery, Micarowave Ablation, Imunoterapi dan berbagai jenis metode lainnya. Jika dibandingkan dengan teknologi pengobatan konvensional, metode-metode ini memiliki kelebihan minim luka, pemulihan cepat, minim efek samping dan lain-lain, dan metode ini juga cocok diterapkan pada pasien kanker payudara stadium lanjut.

1. Intervensi

Dalam penerapannya pada kanker payudara, Intervensi hanya membutuhkan luka sayatan sekitar 1-2mm. Dipandu dengan alat pencitraan medis, dokter akan melakukan diagnosa dan pengobatan secara lokal. Embolisasi tidak hanya dapat meningkatkan tingkat konsentrasi obat pada bagian lokal tumor (10 kali lebih tinggi dari kemoterapi sistemik), tetapi juga dapat menghambat pembuluh darah penyuplai nutrisi tumor, kemudian meminimalisir efek samping yang ditimbulkan. Metode ini dilakukan tanpa operasi, minim luka, pemulihan cepat dan lebih efektif.

2. Cryosurgery

Cryosurgery disebut juga “Pisau Ar-He”, merupakan metode yang menggunakan gas argon dan helium, secara cepat membekukan dan menghancurkan tumor, membuat tumor mati, hingga tercapai tujuan pengobatan. Metode ini merupakan teknologi pengobatan bertarget yang menggunakan standar FDA Amerika, menghindarkan pasien dari luka akibat operasi, efektif membunuh tumor secara keseluruhan, mencegah penyebaran tumor dan memperbaiki sistem kekebalan tubuh pasien. Metode ini dapat dikombinasikan dengan metode pengobatan lainnya.

3. Microwave Ablation

Pada pengobatan kanker, metode ini menggunakan jarum elektroda yang akan dimasukkan ke dalam pusat tumor, jarum ini akan memancarkan radiasi dalam dosis rendah, meningkatkan suhu tumor, memadatkan protein tumor dan membuat tumor menjadi mati.

4. Imunoterapi

Imunoterapi tidak hanya dapat membunuh sel kanker, membersihkan sisa-sisa sel kanker, serta mencegah kekambuhan dan penyebaran kanker, tetapi juga dapat memulihkan dan membangun kembali sistem kekebalan tubuh pasien, serta mengontrol pertumbuhan kanker payudara.

Pada kasus kanker payudara, metode minimal invasif ini dapat secara maksimal melindungi keutuhan payudara pasien, menghilangkan ketakutan pasien terhadap proses mastektomi. Bagi Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou yang menjadikan metode minimal invasif sebagai metode pengobatan utama, rumah sakit ini telah memiliki banyak kasus berhasil, terus mendapatkan kepercayaan dari banyak pasien, serta terus menarik perhatian banyak pasien kanker asal luar negeri untuk melakukan pengobatan di China.

How Does Interventional Therapy Treat Breast Cancer?

April 15th, 2016

An increasing number of international cancer patients choose cancer treatment in China. With advantages of no surgery, few side effects, strong targeting, good effect etc., minimally invasive cancer therapy is hot.

Breast cancer is the top women’s cancer with high incidence, greatly threatening women’s health. Oncologist Liu Lvguang from Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou introduces one of minimally invasive therapies– interventional therapy to treat breast cancer.

According to Prof. Liu Lvguang, interventional therapy is a kind of chemotherapy with minimal harm towards breast cancer patients. With a 1-2 millimeter incision, paracentesis is performed with the guidance of medical imaging equipment like CT. A dedicated tube is inserted into the tumor part, and then anticancer drug is injected to the tumor or lesion to kill tumor accurately. The drug concentration of regional perfusion is 2-8 times higher than intravenous drip.

Subsequently, transarterial embolization is performed to cut off the tumor blood vessels so that the tumor dies out of blood supply loss. Nutrition and oxygen supplied by blood vessels are the bases for tumor to survive while capillary growing is the foundation for tumor growth. Because there are many blood vessels in a tumor, blocking the blood vessels can control the tumor growing and spreading, then starve the tumor to death.

In that the embolic agent can take the anticancer medicines to the breast tumor directly, the effect will be much higher and will not cause damage to nearby normal organs or tissues. Interventional therapy, taking advantages of small wound, no operation, fast recovery, good effect etc, has become one of popular treatment options in breast cancer patients.

At Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, professional MDT (multidisciplinary team) customizes personalized cancer treatment and care for each cancer patient, so they can receive the most-advanced, least-invasive treatment with the fewest side effects. Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, dedicated to anticancer minimally invasive techniques, has helped numerous breast cancer patients from various countries beat cancer easily.

“Thank God, You’re Here”

Maret 28th, 2016

—-Documentary of Dr. Ke’s Clinical Reception
Author: Dr. Ke Liqun from Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou

The person who sat opposite to me was an elderly mother of a cancer patient. From her look of great concern and anxiety, I knew she was a good mother. As we met, she frankly told me, “This is my sixth time to consult Chinese expert.” I handed a cup of tea to her and replied to her with smile, “After you consult with me, I am sure that you will not find the seventh Chinese specialist anymore.”

According to this mother, I knew that her daughter, a breast cancer patient, was 36 years old. Two years ago, she took surgery first, and then six sessions of chemotherapy, later oral tamoxifen (an anticancer hormone drug). After one year, she discovered cancer came back with metastasis to liver and lung during her regular check-up. Subsequently, she took treatment in Singapore where the doctor made her a plan of 8 sessions of chemotherapy. So far, she had finished 7 sessions. Although the lesions in her lung shrank, the tumor in her liver did not.

I verified her statement after I compared two CT photos before and after treatment. I asked, “What may you want me to help?” She answered, “Singapore doctors said they only have chemotherapy, while a Chinese professor recommends me 125I seed implantation, and some advise me interventional therapy and cryotherapy. I want to ask for your suggestion.”

“It’s sad that cancer metastasized to liver and lung so quickly after breast cancer surgery”, rather than answered her questions directly, I said, “If the patient took several sessions of preoperative chemotherapy, then surgery, and lastly chemotherapy and radiotherapy, she would not be in this current condition.” The old woman blurted out, “Yes, Singapore doctor also holds the same opinion.”

Then, I explained the applicable time, efficacy, limitation and side effects to use surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy for advanced breast cancer, as well as their mechanism of immunity damage and promotion of cancer recurrence and metastasis in detail. Furthermore, I pointed out that her daughter was a victim of conventional cancer treatment, taking treatment meanwhile getting cancer metastasis. “I also know that chemotherapy cannot work anymore”, she sighed, “On the one hand, we haven’t found out a reliable treatment to replace chemotherapy yet. On the other hand, my daughter firmly trusts Singapore medical technology. ” When she asked whether there were any reliable alternative treatments in China, I made a detailed introduction of principles, advantages, applications and operating processes of cryotherapy, interventional therapy and particle knife to her, which substituted for surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy respectively. Besides, I suggested her daughter come for consultation personally. However, the old women said, “Since she was diagnosed with cancer, she hasn’t wanted to see anyone, even her friends. I have persuaded her to see Chinese doctors for many times, but was rejected. ”

Two days later, this old woman visited our office again, leading her husband and her son in this time. Her husband said he and his son were doctors, and his wife was a retired pharmacist. They aimed to explore hormone therapy with me.

He asked, “My daughter’s breast cancer is ER-positive (estrogen receptor-positive). Why can’t tamoxifen prevent her cancer metastasis?”

“Your question is very professional”, I said, “Indeed, estrogen is highly correlated with breast cancer development. Since the early 1990s, people take estrogen as the high-risk factor of breast cancer. But it is not the only factor that causes cancer. Because tamoxifen plays a role in resisting estrogen, applying tamoxifen as adjuvant therapy to ER-positive breast cancer patients can lower metastasis rate by 65%. In other words, about one third of ER-positive breast cancer patients cannot benefit from tamoxifen. ”

“Now that tamoxifen doesn’t take effect on antiestrogen, is there any help to eliminate the source of estrogen by removing my daughter’s ovary and womb?” The patient’s father questioned me closely.

I said, “Your thought is very fashionable, which has theory basis and supporting cases.” And then I took a foreign star who removed her ovary and womb to prevent breast cancer as an example. I continued to say, “However, as I say, estrogen is not the only factor to cause breast cancer. There are other factors causing breast cancer. Under the situation that tamoxifen doesn’t work, it may be backfired that to lie hopes on removing ovary and womb to control advanced breast cancer. Moreover, your daughter’s breast cancer has spread extensively. Is there any gynecologist who takes adventure to cut out a normal ovary and a normal womb for unreliable effect? Even given a lot of guts, he or she dare not!” At last, I showed my greetings and wishes to the patients, conveyed by them. I encouraged the patient to have confidence and patience to fight against cancer, and to have positive and optimistic attitude as the return for family love. Besides, I gave her some guidance in daily life.

A week later, the patient’s mother excitedly called and told me her daughter wanted to see me.

The patient was a cool and young lady, unlike an advanced cancer patient. I stood up, hold her hands and said, “Thank God, you’re here.” On seeing her surprised look, I promptly explained, “There is a humorous Chinese host from CCTV (China Central Television), similar to the figure of English Mr. Bean. He hosts a program called ‘Thank God, you’re here’ which is popular in China. ” As she smiled, I said, “To welcome you, I specially prepare an egg for you. But it is not for you to eat, but a prop to answer your questions.”

She asked me the first question, “At the very start, my doctor told me that my disease is not so serious, which can be treated well. Why does the cancer metastasize so quickly? ”

I replied, “It is related to the substandard of the first treatment. But it is not the main reason. And here is the origin to cause breast cancer development and worsening. On the one side, cancer stem cells are crazy to copy and produce cancer cells without limitations; on the other side, the body immunity cannot recognize and kill so much cancer cells. Those two reasons combine together to become a tumor which grows and spreads constantly. Let’s look at this egg, the most primordial stem cell of chicken. Compared with a normal cell of chicken, except for its bigger size, the egg has a layer of thick shell. Human cancer stem cell has the similar structure of egg shell, so it is not afraid of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Before taking tumor removal surgery, if cancer stem cells move to other organs or tissues and grow there, it is difficult to prevent cancer recurrence and metastasis no matter how much chemotherapy and radiotherapy we do later. It is well known that the treatment effect of surgery for the early cancer is remarkable. And people hold that it is unnecessary to take chemotherapy and radiotherapy for most of early cancer patients after operation. Why? Because the cancer stem cell at the early stage of cancer is still in the central of the tumor to grow stronger without moving outside. At this time, via surgery, cancer stem cell can be eliminated with the whole tumor. As for your present condition, the ideal treatment plan cannot be lack of intervention for cancer stem cell. Apart from surgery, there are minimally invasive treatments to intervene cancer stem cells and cancer cells in your body, including cryotherapy, microwave ablation, radio frequency, energetic particle etc. They can kill cancer towards its source. Moreover, if they are combined with immunotherapy, it will make your condition even better.”

She asked an aggressive question, “What you say above is very nice. But I have a friend who is a breast cancer patient too. At first she went to Guangzhou to get treatment, but her condition was worse and worse. Until she was transferred to Singapore hospital, her condition got control. Could you please tell me why?”

I answered, “First of all, Guangzhou is one of three biggest cities in China. There are many cancer hospitals with various cancer treatments in Guangzhou. So, could you please tell me which hospital your friend was admitted to? What treatments did she take? Secondly, minimally invasive therapy, as I say, is a new and high-end cancer treatment project. It highly demands for good equipments, and especially suitable treatment programme and high level of doctor’s medical techniques. That is to say, treatment effect of minimally invasive therapy is bound up with merit of doctor’s techniques and advancement of medical equipments. Different doctor operates different equipment, and the efficacy is different. Besides, the treatment effect also depends on the individual condition. Thirdly, your mom told me that you haven’t smiled since you got sick. But today, when I said the first sentence to you, I saw you smiling. So, I believe if you can receive better treatment, smile will be always on your face, increasing more joys to your families and friends.”

Two weeks later, Indonesian patient Chandra, accompanied by her family, flied to Guangzhou to begin her special treatment trip in Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou.

Breast Cancer Treatment

Desember 18th, 2015

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women globally, with nearly 1.7 million new cases and 0.52 million death in 2012 (according to WHO). However, breast cancer treatment technologies are getting better all the time, and patients have many more options today than ever before. With so many choices, it’s a good idea to learn as much as you can know about which one can help you the most. Oncologist from Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou introduces various breast cancer treatments for you.

The most common breast cancer treatments include surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Surgery is divided into several types, including breast-conserving surgery (lumpectomy), mastectomy, and lymph node dissection. Decisions about surgery depend on many factors. Radiotherapy uses controlled doses of radiation to kill breast cancer cells. It’s usually given after surgery and chemotherapy to kill any remaining cancer cells. Chemotherapy involves using anti-cancer (cytotoxic) medication to kill the cancer cells. It’s usually used after surgery to destroy any cancer cells that haven’t been removed. This is called adjuvant chemotherapy. In some cases, you may have chemotherapy before surgery, which is often used to shrink a large tumor. This is called neo-adjuvant chemotherapy.

However, surgeries cause big surgical trauma which is susceptible to infection, yet it cannot kill the cancer cells completely. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy may kill tumor effectively. However, there are so many side effects such as infections, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, tiredness, hair loss sore mouth etc. And they kill not only cancer cells, but normal cells as well, which create a favorable environment for cancer regrowth.

At present, minimally invasive therapy for breast cancer is an advanced method internationally, which has advantages of small trauma, few side effects, quick recovery, no surgery, better therapeutic effect etc, greatly reducing breast cancer patient’s pain. Minimally invasive therapy for breast cancer includes interventional therapy, cryotherapy, biological immunotherapy, etc.

Interventional therapy for is performed under the guidance of medical imaging equipments. With a 1-2 millimeter incision, paracentesis could be performed with the lead of medical imaging equipment. Then a special tube, catheter or other sophisticated apparatus are introduced into breast cancer patient’s body to treat the lesion, so as to cut off the cancer’s blood supply.

Cryotherapy, an advanced cancer treatment technology, uses extreme cold to freeze and kill cancer cells. It’s also used to control pain and control bleeding. All cells, including cancer cells, contain water. When cryotherapy freezes the cells, the water turns to ice crystals. These ice crystals, along with the cold itself, destroy the cancer cells. When cryotherapy is used to treat breast cancer in the body, one or more small needles, called cryoprobes, deliver either liquid nitrogen or argon gas directly to the cancer tissue. Ultrasound, computerized tomography (CT), or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used to put the cryoprobes in exactly the right place.

Biological immunotherapy is a mature cancer treatment technology and widely used. It can kill tumor cells directly, prevent recurrence and metastases, and improve immunity and living standards. Immune cells are collected from human autoimmune cells. Via cultivation in vitro, immune cells increase by thousands of times with powerful targeting killing ability. And then they are infused back to body to kill pathogens, cancer cells, mutant cells in tissues and blood so as to achieve the aim of treating cancer.

Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou is specialized in minimally invasive therapy for breast cancer which attracts a lot of international breast cancer patients to go to China for cancer treatment. A lot of breast cancer patients have got good treatment effect. They have prolonged their survival time, improved their life quality. Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, accredited by JCI (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Organizations), continues to spread advanced cancer treatment technologies world while to brings new hopes for more breast cancer patients.

The oncologist also indicates that it is significant for breast cancer patients to receive suitable treatment as early as possible. Early detection and early treatment help breast cancer to get better treatment effect.

Are surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy the only choice for breast cancer treatment?

Oktober 5th, 2015

Cancer is a kind of common and fatal disease. The mortality of breast cancer ranks second among all the cancer types, which just lower than that of lung cancer. The morbidity of breast cancer is about 12.5%; about one in 35 die because of breast cancer. Women who had ever breast cancer are three to four times likely to suffer from breast cancer again.

Many patients lost their best chance of receiving treatments when they know they had breast cancer, in that the early symptoms of breast cancer are often insidious. Traditional breast cancer treatments like surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy bring patients not only physical pain, but also psychological trauma.

Fortunately, surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy are not the only way for breast cancer treatment. With the development of international minimally invasive medical technologies, cryotherapy and interventional therapy has become the new choice, which can not only kill cancer cells, lower the recurrence rate, but also remain women’s breast and the function of upper limbs just with a 2-3mm wound. Minimally invasive therapies improve the efficacy and patients’ life quality; also help them regain health and confidence.

Breast modified radical mastectomy is an international therapy, which can not only kill cancer cells, lower the recurrence rate, but also remain women’s breast and their function of upper limbs. The efficacy can be greatly improved if cooperate with the interventional therapy, cryotherapy and biological immunotherapy. As a hospital accredited by the Joint Commission Institution (JCI), experts here will make the best therapeutic plan for patients and help them get the best efficacy!

Kenali Gejala Kanker Payudara dan Deteksi Dini

September 25th, 2015

Kanker payudara adalah salah satu jenis kanker dengan tingkat prevalensi tertinggi pada kaum wanita, tetapi jenis kanker satu ini dapat dicegah dan diobati, sehingga masih bisa mengurangi rasa takut masyarakat. Selain pemeriksaan umum, banyak juga yang melakukan SADARI. Namun, apa saja cirri-ciri kanker payudara?

Menurut para Ahli Onkologi Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, gejala kanker payudara pada setiap orang tidaklah sama, tergantung pada kondisi masing-masing. Berikut perbedaannya.

Gejala Umum
Benjolan payudara, gangguan menyusui, metastase jauh kanker payudara, nyeri dada, nyeri seperti tertusuk, pembengkakan, retraksi puting, puting mengeluarkan cairan dan puting rusak

Kanker Payudara Tersembunyi
Yaitu benjolan yang tidak dapat diraba secara klinis, hanya dapat terdiagnosa melalui pemeriksaan patologis pasca operasi. Sering terdiagnosa melalui pemeriksaan X-Ray atau ditandai dengan adanya penyebaran ke bagian limfa.

Kanker payudara pada pria
Gejala utama kanker payudara pada pria adalah benjolan di bawah areola yang tidak disertai rasa sakit, 20% pasien mengalami retraksi puting, pengerasan kulit dan gejala lainnya, benjolan tidak memiliki batas yang jelas, dan pada stadium awal sering timbul adhesi pada kulit atau dada, dengan kemungkinan metastase ke kelenjar getah bening yang lebih tinggi.

Inflamasi Kanker Payudara
Kanker payudara inflamasi relatif jarang ditemukan secara klinis, gejalanya dapat berupa pembengkakan lokal disertai kemerahan, dan di dalam jaringan payudara yang kemerahan tersebut kadang terdapat benjolan dengan tekstur keras. Pada area ketiak juga ditemukan kelenjar getah bening dengan tekstur yang keras. Jaringan payudara terletak di sekitar fasia superfisial subkutan, dapat menarik lapisan kulit pasien, sehingga mengakibatkan kulit menjadi cekung ke dalam, seperti lesung pipit, disebut juga dengan “tanda lesung pipit.”

Kanker Payudara Pada Masa Kehamilan dan Menyusui
Kanker payudara yang terjadi pada masa kehamilan atau menyusui menempati persentase sekitar 0,75-31%, selama kehamilan dan menyusui terdapat perubahan kadar hormon yang dapat mempercepat pertumbuhan tumor, sehingga tumor tumbuh lebih cepat dengan tingkat keganasan yang lebih tinggi. Selain itu, selama kehamilan dan menyusui, jaringan fisiologis payudara akan meningkat dan menyumbat aliran darah, sehingga tidak mudah dilakukan pendeteksian dini dan mudah terjadi penyebaran.

Semakin cepat terdeteksi, kemungkinan kanker payudara dapat disembuhkan pun semakin besar. Kita semua, terutama kaum wanita wajib memahami gejala kanker payudara, waspada dan perhatikan perubahan pada tubuh, jika ada perubahan, jangan menganggapnya sepele. Ini bukan hanya merupakan bentuk tanggung jawab anda terhadap diri sendiri, tetapi juga terhadap keluarga.

Mencegah Kanker Dalam Kehidupan Sehari-Hari

September 21st, 2015

Kanker payudara adalah salah satu kanker ganas yang paling umum ditemukan pada kaum wanita berusia 40-60 tahun, dan tingkat prevalensinya jauh lebih tinggi pada kaum wanita sebelum dan sesudah menopause. Sehingga, kaum wanita diharapkan untuk memahami cara merawat diri sendiri, merawat payudara untuk mencegah terjadinya kanker payudara. Walaupun banyak orang yang menyatakan bahwa kanker payudara adalah penyakit yang tidak dapat disembuhkan, namun sesungguhnya penyakit ini dapat dicegah, diobati dan disembuhkan, akan lebih baik jika terdeteksi dan diobati sejak dini.

Rutin Melakukan Pemeriksaan
Kaum wanita dewasa, baik yang sedang dalam masa subur atau tidak, diwajibkan untuk menjalani pemeriksaan payudara rutin setiap tahunnya. Dan jika terdiagnosa, segeralah menjalani pengobatan, jangan menunda waktu pengobatan terbaik.

Pemeriksaan SADARI
Kaum wanita yang berusia di atas 20 tahun disarankan untuk menjalani Pemeriksaan Payudara Sendiri (SADARI) setiap bulan. Metode pemeriksaan ini terbagi menjadi 2 jenis — inspeksi dan palpasi. “Inspeksi” bisa dilakukan saat sedang mandi atau berganti pakaian, anda bisa menghadap ke cermin, kedua lengan diletakkan di sisi tubuh untuk mengamati bentuk payudara, perhatikan apakah ada kejanggalan yang anda lihat; “Palpasi” dilakukan dengan cara berbaring, raba payudara dengan gerakan memutar seperti mengelilingi area puting. Secara sistematis, dengan arah naik dan turun, pastikan seluruh bagian payudara tersentuh dan pastikan ada atau tidaknya benjolan, periksa juga puting dengan menekannya secara lembut, pastikan apakah ada cairan yang keluar. Jika anda mengalami gejala tertentu, waspadalah dan segera menjalani pemeriksaan lanjut di rumah sakit setempat.

Perawatan Kebersihan Payudara
Saat mandi, anda harus memberi perhatian khusus pada bagian payudara anda, secara bergantian menggunakan air panas dan dingin pada bagian payudara sehingga dapat memperlancar sirkulais darah pada area payudara, gunakan sabun saat membersihkan bagian payudara.

Menanamkan Pola Hidup Sehat
Harus memperhatikan pola makan, banyak mengkonsumsi ikan, hati, kuning telur dan daging untuk mencukupi kebutuhan vitamin D dalam tubuh, banyak mengkonsumsi asupan fitoestrogen dan makanan kedelai untuk mengembangkan serta mengatur sekresi estrogen dalam tubuh. Selain itu, asupan yodium dan vitamin A juga efektif mencegah kanker payudara.

Selain itu, anda juga harus rutin berolahraga dan tidak merokok. Dalam kehidupan sehari-hari, perhatikan suasana hati, miliki sikap positif dalam mengatasi masalah, lebih banyak berkomunikasi dengan teman-teman, gunakan waktu luang anda untuk melakukan aktivitas sesuai hobi masing-masing. Hal-hal ini dapat meningkatkan kondisi fisik dan jiwa yang dapat mengurangi risiko kanker payudara.
