New breast cancer screening guidelines issued for high risk women

Consultant breast surgeon Prof Datuk Dr Yip Cheng Har speaks to Malay Mail during an interview in Kuala Lumpur

Strikingly, past researches have connected the higher risk of a few sorts of growth to higher processed meat admission, and this most recent meta-study too proposes that Sausages, bacon consumption may cause higher breast cancer risk.

Activities lined up for the month include Social and News media campaigns to clear the myth of breast cancer, outreach programs, network and breast examination in hospitals and diagnostic facilities like Korle-bu, Ho Regional, Komfo Anokye, Legon, Lekma, 37 Military, Accra Regional hospitals as well as the Tamale and Tema general hospitals, among others.

Previous findings from the World Health Organization (WHO) said that processed meats cause cancer, and as such this study supported previous findings. All of the women who had cancer were treated and are alive today with no evidence of the disease.

The study authors followed 295 of these high-risk women and, thanks to semiannual MRIs, were able to detect 17 breast cancers at an early stage before reaching the lymph nodes.

It is the chemicals involved in the processing which could be increasing the risk of cancer.

Most recently, a review from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health observed a strong correlation with breast cancer, estimating a 9 percent higher risk linked to processed meat. MRI is much more sensitive than mammography.

During this month, customers coming in for brake service will get brake pads for free while the shop makes a 10 percent donation from the brake jobs which will go towards research for the Cleveland Clinic Breast Cancer Vaccine Fund. "No single foodstuff is responsible for cancer".

However, the NHS recommends eating no more than 70g of red and processed meat a day, which is considerably higher than this. Breast MRI can also be considered for those with history of breast cancer and those with precancerous cells at biopsy, especially if other risk factors are present. Smoking can also interfere with cancer treatment.

The researchers did not observe a significant association between red (unprocessed) meat intake and risk of breast cancer. A new study indicates that this important vitamin may not only reduce breast cancer risk, but reduce breast cancer mortality.
