Radiological findings of breast involvement in benign and malignant systemic diseases. Although the primary purpose of periodic mammograms in screening programs is to identify lesions suspected of being carcinomas, the findings are often related to systemic benign or malignant diseases, rather than breast cancer. Although the involvement of breast structures in systemic diseases is unusual, it can be included in the differential diagnosis of masses, skin changes, calcifications, asymmetry, and axillary lymphadenopathy.
Breast developmentalso known as mammogenesisis a complex biological process in primates that takes place throughout a female's life. It occurs across several phases, including prenatal developmentpubertyand pregnancy. At menopausebreast development ceases and the breasts atrophy.
Breast cancer is cancer that develops from breast tissue. Risk factors for developing breast cancer include being female, obesitylack of physical exercise, drinking alcoholhormone replacement therapy during menopauseionizing radiationearly age at first menstruationhaving children late or not at all, older age, prior history of breast cancer, and family history. The balance of benefits versus harms of breast cancer screening is controversial. A Cochrane review stated that it is unclear if mammographic screening does more good or harm.
Supportive Care in Cancer. The aim of the study was to examine the role of five general personality traits in fatigue in a group of patients with breast cancer BC and a group with benign breast problems BBP. In the total group, women were more tired over time when they were more neurotic, less agreeable, or more introverted.
The Korean guideline for breast cancer screening. Corresponding author: Joon Jeong. Breast cancer is the second most common malignancy among Korean women.
The colour warms up the windowless warren of consulting, counselling and treatment rooms. Warming the sterile environment even more is clinic head Dr Carol Benn. She is a dervish of energy and conversation, stopping to check on patients waiting for treatment, leaving smiles in her wake.
There are many possible breast problems that breastfeeding mothers may face. But, some breast problems can be a sign of something more dangerous. It's very important to understand and identify any issues that you run into with your breasts as soon as possible.
The emerging application of magnetic relaxometry, in particular using superconducting quantum interference device SQUID sensors, is fast and potentially more specific than mammography because it is designed to detect tumor-targeted iron oxide magnetic nanoparticles. Furthermore, magnetic relaxometry is theoretically more specific than MRI detection, because only target-bound nanoparticles are detected. Our group is developing antibody-conjugated magnetic nanoparticles targeted to breast cancer cells that can be detected using magnetic relaxometry. METHODS: To accomplish this, we identified a series of breast cancer cell lines expressing varying levels of the plasma membrane-expressed human epidermal growth factor-like receptor 2 Her2 by flow cytometry.
