Ehhmmm... Betul Ke Kajian Ini (Kanser Payudara)


Kanser payudara merupakan pembunuh wanita no 1 di Malaysia. Pelbagai kempen dan cara telah dijalankan bagi memupuk kesedaran kanser payudara ini di kalangan wanita.

Saya terbaca satu artikel dari portal Peace Fm Online. Entah betul entah tidak, artikel tersebut mendakwa menghisap payudara dapat mengurangkan risiko kanser payudara. Saya tidak mahu ulas panjang-panjang, anda baca sahaja laporan dari laman tersebut.

The National Cancer Institute, a component of the National Institute of Health, estimates that based on current rates, 12.7% of women born today will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some time in their lives.

According to BBC, whenever men suck women’s breast, they (women) stand a lower risk of getting breast cancer.

A lot of men interview by PeaceFM say if sucking their wives breast will prevent them from getting breast cancer the “we will continuously suck and never get tired.

Speaking in an interview with PEACEFM News, Dr. Robert Mensah, a Reproductive Health Specialist, said there is an iota of truth in the finding even though emotional stress, alcohol, toxic brazier, using a brazier for a long time and other factors can also lead to breast cancer.

"When men stimulates the nipples of women, the hormones which prevents breast cancer is produced more and by so doing prevent breast cancer," he said.

Dr. Mensah also revealed that women are not the only victims of breast cancer, since men can also be afflicted with breast cancer.

"The rate of death in men (due to breast cancer) is more than that in women because the breast of the man is flat on the chest so it spreads quickly to the heart, leading to their death," he added.

So, if by sucking a woman’s breast it can prevent breast cancer then women can also do the same to the men. What do you think about that?

Kanak-Kanak Berumur 4 Tahun Yang Menghidap Kanser Payudara

Inilah Kanak-Kanak Berumur 4 Tahun Yang Menghidap Kanser Payudara

Aleisha Hunter

kesian budak ni

Aleisha Hunter, seorang kanak-kanak berusia 4 tahun adalah seorang kanak-kanak yang termuda disahkan menghidap kanser payudara. Aleisha yang berasal dari Toronto, Canada itu terpaksa menjalani pembedahan mastectomy iaitu pembedahan untuk membuang payudaranya.

Walaubagaimanapun, pembedahan itu telah berjaya menghalang kanser itu dan kini Aleisha dilaporkan sihat walafiat.

Ibunya, Melanie Hunter berkata beliau terkejut kerana terasa benjolan (lump) di dada anaknya itu ketika sedang mengeringkan Aleisha selepas mandi. Kejadian itu berlaku pada tahun 2008 ketika Aleisha berusia 2 tahun!

Benjolan sebesar kacang hijau itu pada mulanya disangkakan penyakit kulit yang biasa, namun Melanie terkilan apabila diberitahu keadaan sebenar anaknya. Aleisha kemudiannya dihantar untuk pembedahan mastectomy dan pemeriksaan lanjutan mendapati kanser itu tidak lagi merebak.

Beliau kemudiannya dibenarkan pulang selepas 3 hari. Pakar bedah, Dr Nancy Down berkata beliau tidak pernah berjumpa pesakit yang begitu muda untuk menghidap kanser payudara sepanjang 25 tahun kariernya.

Lung cancer scans can be unreliable - study

NEW YORK - CT SCANS to measure lung tumors can be unreliable, potentially leading patients and doctors to believe cancer is growing when it's not, according to a study.

In principle, that could mean stopping a treatment that is actually keeping the tumor in check, researchers said in the study, which they said was the first to test how reliable lung cancer scans are, and appeared in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

'The patient and the doctor both need to understand that small changes don't necessarily mean much,' said Gregory Riely, at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

'Changes of up to 10 per cent can happen simply as a result of the inherent variability of CT imaging.'

For the study, the Sloan-Kettering team asked patients with late-stage lung cancer if they'd be willing to have two chest CT scans within minutes. Thirty-three patients said yes.

Doctors normally scan such patients every few months to see if their tumor is growing, which could be a signal to change drugs. Then the researchers gave the images to three radiologists who had no idea the scans had been repeated before the tumors could have grown or shrunk appreciably. But the radiologists reported many changes, ranging from a 23 per cent shrinkage to a 31 per cent growth.

Overall, three per cent of the tumors appeared to have grown so much that doctors would diagnose disease progression according to common criteria. And the smaller the tumor, the bigger the variation.

Dr Riely said some doctors will make treatment decisions based on tiny changes seen on scans, although that might be a costly mistake, according to the study's findings. 'We begin to put more and more stock in the data without really understanding the true variability of those measurements,' he said. 'The changes are not clinically meaningful and we should not alter clinical care based on them.' Dr Riely did say, though, that the findings did not mean that patients should get repeat scans, which would increase their radiation exposure. -- REUTERS
