Breast Cancer

In my experience when seeing patients that have found a breast lump they are understandably apprehensive. Their mind racing as to what might be going on and inevitably considering the potential worst-case scenario. Breast lumps are common and the majority are non-cancerous lumps that come and go with the changes in hormone levels during your menstrual cycle.

However when we can’t reassure you there is fortunately somewhere that we can send you to find our what is going on. All referrals to breast clinic are dealt with pretty quickly, especially if cancer is suspected. My videos will show you what to look for in your breasts, how to be breast aware and what tests you might have if you are referred to a breast clinic.

Facts suppled by breast cancer care

Can what you eat increase your risk of breast cancer?

According to some studies eating high amounts of saturated fats can cause an increase in your risk of developing breast cancer. It is likely that other factors also contribute but reducing your saturated fat intake will keep you healthier for a number of reasons.

Sources of saturated fat include:

- Fatty cuts of meat
– Meat products, including sausages and pies
– Butter, ghee and lard
– Cheese, especially hard cheese
– Cream, soured cream and ice cream
– Some savoury snacks and chocolate products
– Biscuits, cakes and pastries

There are some suggestions, although the evidence is less clear cut that eating the following healthier diet options may reduce your risk of breast cancer:

- Eat more fibre from wheat bran, cereals, beans, fruit and vegetables
– Make sure you have enough calcium in your diet – from milk, cheese and other dairy foods, green leafy vegetables (such as broccoli, cabbage and okra, but not spinach), soya beans, tofu, nuts, bread, and fish where you eat the bones, such as sardines and pilchards
– Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables

For further diet facts and links to the studies referred to take a look at this cancer research page.
