Prevention of breast cancer

Prevention in women at normal risk of developing breast cancer

  • Discuss with your doctor what screening program is best for your age. Prophylactic mammograms are usually performed annually or annually in women over 50 years of age;
  • Examine your breasts regularly yourself – regular breast examinations by the woman herself do not prevent the development of cancer, but can help in its early diagnosis;
  • Consume alcohol only in moderation;
  • Quit smoking;
  • Exercise regularly – exercise for at least 30 minutes most days of the week;
  • Limit hormone therapy to relieve menopausal symptoms – take the lowest possible dose of hormones for as short a time as possible;
  • Breastfeed your children – the longer the breastfeeding period, the greater the protective effect;
  • Maintain optimal body weight;
  • Eat Healthy – A Mediterranean diet high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, olive oil and nuts can reduce your risk of developing breast cancer.

Prevention in women at increased risk of developing breast cancer

If your doctor has told you that you have an increased risk of developing breast cancer, you may want to discuss additional ways of prevention that are significantly more radical than those described above and are not suitable for all women.

  • Estrogen-blocking drugs – selective modulators of estrogen receptors and aromatase inhibitors. They are only used in women at very high risk of breast cancer because they have significant side effects;
  • Preventive surgery – Some women at very high risk of developing cancer may prefer to remove their healthy mammary glands and replace them with implants. Also, if they do not want to have more children, some of these women remove their ovaries to prevent the development of ovarian cancer, which is genetically related to breast cancer in hereditary cases.
