October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is a campaign designed to both spread information about the dangers of breast cancer and stress the importance of early detection.
As we move into October, our office feels compelled to address the importance of education and awareness of breast cancer.
In this blog, we hope to help people understand what causes breast cancer, how to prevent it, and improve early diagnosis rates.
Detecting this disease early can make all the difference, and the best way to do that is to see a legitimate oncologist.
Dr. Diamond had a close friend who decided to try antioxidant therapy and herbal treatments in Mexico.
Unfortunately, these therapies did not work, and her cancer continued to progress rapidly.
Cancer treatments can be difficult and unpleasant to undergo, but Dr. Diamond believes that there is no reasonable alternative therapy (at this time) to reduce and eliminate cancer.
When caught early, breast cancer can be removed, and women can live long, healthy lives after their treatment concludes.
The Beyond the Shock website offers a no-fear plan as follows:
- F: Find medical help immediately if you discover an abnormality in your breasts, such as a bump, dimpling in the tissue, nipple discharge, redness, or another unusual symptom.
- E: End bad habits, including excessive alcohol intake, consuming processed foods, smoking, and other behavior that deteriorates your health.
- A: Allow others to support you and provide care, help, and love. Beyond the Shock offers a support group and further information about breast cancer to help guide you through your journey to recovery. You are not alone!
- R: Resist bad attitudes and unhealthy thoughts that encourage or promote fear. Remain strong on your adventure.
It is crucial that you become familiar with your body and breasts. You should conduct regular self-checks and attend routine doctor appointments to discover abnormalities in their early stages.
Whether you are a female or a male, early detection is essential to removing cancer immediately for a better chance at survival.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Breast Cancer Foundation are other valuable resources to learn about breast cancer.
