Breast Correction : Decision Is Yours

Women are the beautiful creation of God. Besides the facial looks, there are other features that are very important for the beauty aspect of women. Having optimum sized and firm breasts is something that every woman dreams of – as the breasts definitely add to their feminine self.

In order to gain that perfect breast shape and look, the present day women have readily accepted to go under the knife. There is absolutely no regret with regard to the pain and unnecessary damage to the health that such procedures may pose, in the race to look good and feel feminine.

Breast Lift, breast implants and breast augmentation are some of the procedures that have become a common place in today’s world.

The fact that a woman with smaller or sagging breasts holds a kind of inferiority complex and wishes to have a more well-endowed body, is getting substantiated with more and more women opting for breast implants and breast lift in the present day.

Though the procedure of breast lift, that includes cuts, incisions and repairs to the breast skin and tissue, does not involve much problem if recovers completely, the process of breast augmentation and breast implants that need insertion of the implant material inside the body tissues have their own side effects and complications even after the surgery is completely successful.

So, before going in for any such kind of surgery it is very essential to know the dangers related to such procedures. In case you have decided to go ahead with either breast lift or a Breast Implants, do ensure that you chose the best available option with regard to the doctor and medical facility as the same plays a very important role in avoiding any kind of infection and mishap related complications.

The biggest problem encountered with breast implants after a successful surgery, is the case of rupture of the silicone implants. In such a case the individual’s breasts become uneven and asymmetrical and thus require another correction surgery. Such a procedure thus poses the risk of putting yourself under the knife quite often.

Though in many cases, the implants last almost for a decade, usually they start troubling with some or the other problem after three to four years. Breast Augmentation also has the possibility of the final result not coming up as desired, thus leaving another cause for disappointment. This is the reason to go in for the best doctor in the field, even if it costs a little more than others.

The gel filled breast implants are placed either under the breast tissue or under the muscle depending on the best possible option. Due to the insertion of this foreign implant, there are also some chances of infection and future trouble. Besides, if not healed properly, the incision wound itself may cause trouble to the person; this problem is a possibility in breast lift as well.

So, it is wise to weigh the pros and cons of the Breast Lift surgery or Breast Augmentation before deciding to go ahead with the same.

Breast Cancer: Choose Your Own Cure!

The term “breast cancer” refers to a malignant tumor that has developed from cells within the breast.  It does not cause early symptoms but neither is it a mysterious disease that strikes you suddenly.
Cancer occurs as a result of abnormal changes in the genes responsible for regulating the growth of cells and keeping them healthy. This could be attributed to genetics, an unhealthy lifestyle or simply the everyday “wear and tear” in life. For a number of reasons any women above the age of 20 years can fall a victim to this dreaded disease, though the majority of advanced breast cancer cases are found in women over the age of 50. 
This article is intended to remind you that those women who educated themselves about why breast cancer occurs, either avoided it completely or combated it with confidence.
It is estimated that in the US alone 1500 women die of breast cancer every day and over the course of a lifetime, 1 in 8 of all women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Surveys show that  more and more women in the US are undergoing a Mammogram or a MRI everyday.
Practitioners of non-conventional medicine (naturopaths and alternate medicine experts) maintain that mammograms do far more harm than good. Eighty percent of the million breast biopsies performed each year in the US are in fact negative, but not detected as such,  because of inaccurate mammography. Why, then, does conventional medicine keep recommending mammograms?
In Sweden alone, according to the medical authorities the proportion of false “positive” results was alarmingly high in women under 50 years and this is considered a serious and costly problem. Presumably the better alternate, Breast Thermography, was approved by the FDA in 1982 for breast cancer detection and risk assessment but is seldom talked about these days.
Mammography, like MRI and sonography, looks at anatomical changes of the breast. It may take years for the tumor to grow to a sufficient size to be detectable by either a mammogram or a physical examination. By that time, the tumor may have already spread to the other parts of the body.
Whereas the risk of breast cancer to women over 55 justifies the risk of mammography, most medical experts are of the opinion that the risk of breast cancer for women under 40 years is not high enough to justify the risk of radiation exposure. 
The National Cancer Institute has recommended chemotherapy for all breast cancer patients, whether or not they have any visible signs of cancer after surgery. Being unable to distinguish between cancerous and healthy cells, this toxic drug ends up killing both. Chemotherapy, with a dubious 3% success rate and horrible side effects does not cure cancer or extend life beyond 5-7 years, with a totally destroyed quality of life.
Radiation therapy, unlike chemotherapy, is considered a local treatment. This means that cancer cells are only killed at the location in the body where the radiation is delivered. If cancer exists outside the targeted field, those cancer cells escape destruction.
So far, the effort to control cancer with conventional medicine has failed  to obtain its objectives. We are obviously losing ground with conventional treatment because the death rates keep going up. This is because modern methods are based on the faulty premises that only aggressive and toxic methods can cure the body of cancer.
It is this complete lack of certainty as to the outcome of conventional treatment that virtually pleads for more flexibility in the area of cancer therapy. For obvious reasons, conventional medicine has looked down upon any other forms of medicine that offers cheaper and better treatment but the fact remains that only alternate medicine is known to cure breast cancer with success for close to a century now.
So, forget what you may  hear about breast cancer being a death warrant and how you’ll be subjected to the ravages of chemotherapy and radiation— the real cure lies before you.

Methods of Breast Cancer Detection And Treatment

One of the most feared diseases in women is breast cancer. Although it occurs primarily in women, in some rare cases occur in men. Many women are very afraid of this disease, which may cause the loss of her breasts. Worse, it can also be fatal as any other type of cancer. It is believed that all women have the opportunity to develop the disease if they abuse their bodies. There are, however, several things you can do to minimize the side effects of breast cancer.

The simplest thing you can do to detect breast cancer, knowing the breast. This method is called breast self-examination. Usually, when you are done during the monthly flat rate, which has the potential to be a cell of breast cancer are more tangible. You just have to feel for any lumps in the breast. If found, do not panic. And ‘normal for you to be careful, but you should keep in mind that it is curable in some way, depending on how bad the cancer cell. You can go to the doctor for a mammogram or an ultrasound procedure, in order to find if you actually breast cancer, to determine the severity of the cancer and know what future actions you should take to cure it.

When you’re done check-up, usually a doctor will give you two options. You can remove the cancer cell; you can do surgery or chemotherapy. Your doctor will probably suggest you take the chemo. You will be advised for surgery only if the condition of the breast cancer cell is too severe. Many people are afraid of chemotherapy because of its side effects like hair loss. Even so, it has proven effective for many people to treat cancer.

In addition to chemotherapy and surgery is another option to try alternative medicine. However, this treatment does not work effectively by them. It can be used as a complement to chemotherapy. It is designed to minimize the side effects of chemo that most women fear. Some of the methods of alternative medicine include acupuncture therapy, taking herbal beverages such as ginseng, and eat, even healthy. All of these can be very useful in helping patients cope with their chemotherapy, which can be quite stressful. In summary, although breast cancer is deadly, is curable. What matters most is that it takes for symptoms as soon as possible because it increases the chances of successful treatment.
