Breast cancer is fairly common in KL Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Each year more than 188,000 and more women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and affects approximately one out of every eight women.
Breast cancer can occur at any age. The average age of women when they are diagnosed with breast cancer is 59 years. However, about a quarter of women diagnosed with breast cancer are younger than 50 years.
Breast cancer can also develop in men, although this is rare. Male breast cancer accounts for about 1% of all breast cancer.
We don't know exactly how long breast cancer takes to develop, but it usually grows slowly. It can be several years before a breast cancer becomes big enough to be detected.
|Breast cancer starts in the ducts or lobules of the breast. If the cancer cells spread outside the ducts or lobules of the breast into the surrounding tissue, this is called invasive breast cancer. Early breast cancer is an invasive breast cancer. Invasive cancer cells sometimes spread outside the breast area to other parts of the body. They do this by moving through blood vessels, such as veins, or through lymphatic vessels. Lymphatic vessels are next to veins in the body, and are connected to lymph nodes (glands). Lymph nodes collect normal fluid and dead cells from the lymphatic vessels. |
If the cancer cells are contained in the breast and armpit area, then the cancer is 'early breast cancer'. If the cancer has spread to places near the breast, such as the chest (including the skin, muscles or bones of the chest), but the cancer isn't found in other areas of the body, this is called locally advanced breast cancer. If the cancer cells spread from the breast and are found in other areas of the body, such as the bones or the lungs, this is called metastatic breast cancer.
Causes of Breast Cancer
No one knows exactly why a normal breast cell becomes a cancerous one, and there is probably no single cause. It is thought, however, that breast cancer results from a combination of risk factors.
These risk factors can be grouped into several categories:
- Hereditary risk
- Hormonal risk factors
- Diet and Exercise
It has long been known that women whose mothers or sisters had breast cancer have a higher risk of developing the disease themselves. Recently, it has been discovered that breast cancer can develop when a woman inherits a breast cancer susceptibility gene from one of her parents. The most common of these genes are the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. These genes account for about 10 percent of all breast cancer cases and in families that have these genes, the risk of breast cancer can be very high. However, it is important to realize that 85 - 90 percent of breast cancers and NOT hereditary, and that all women need to be screened for breast cancer, even if no one in their families have ever had the disease.
Hormonal risk factors:
The female hormones estrogen and progesterone are involved in breast cancer formation. For example, it is known that women who start to menstruate at an early age, or who have a late menopause have a higher risk of breast cancer than women who do not. It is also known that women who take hormone replacement therapy after menopause have an increased risk of breast cancer. Many studies have also been done looking at the risk of taking birth control pills. To date, these studies have not demonstrated an increased risk of breast cancer associated with use of these Chinese medicine.
Diet and Exercise:
Studies have shown that women who exercise are less likely to develop breast cancer
than sedentary women. Studies have also shown that women who gain weight after menopause have an increased risk of breast cancer
compared to women who do not. There are no clear links between diet and breast cancer
risk, except for an increased risk of breast cancer
in women who consume alcohol on a regular basis.
Symptoms of Breast Cancer
Early breast cancer usually does not cause pain. In fact, when it first develops, breast cancer may cause no symptoms at all.
But as the cancer grows, it can cause often accompanied by the following signs and symptoms.
- A lump or thickening in or near the breast or in the underarm area
- A change in the size or shape of the breast
- Nipple discharge or tenderness, or the nipple pulled back (inverted) into the breast
- Ridges or pitting of the breast (the skin looks like the skin of an orange)
- A change in the way the skin of the breast, areola, or nipple looks or feels (for example, warm, swollen, red, or scaly)
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) - Herbal Treatment of Breast Cancer in KL Kuala Lumpur Malaysia
The Treatment of breast cancer involves multiple disciplines, and current recommendations are based on modern tenets of biology and pharmacology along with a growing body of evidence based literature. Despite advances in screening, surgery, adjuvant radiation and systemic therapy and novel biologically targeted therapies, there are limitations to their benefits, especially in advanced disease. Complementary therapies including Oriental medicine have enjoyed a growing popularity as a less intensive and more natural approach to achieving health or improving quality of life. However, definitive literature in this area is scant and therefore has not been integrated into the mainstream Medicine community.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) herbal Treatment may serve as a useful model for scientific inquiry since there is a standardized system of diagnostics and therapies, and this discipline is practiced worldwide. Still, the holistic and individualized nature of (TCM) herbal Treatment presents challenges to rigorous clinical testing, and as a result, most published work in this field is in the form of anecdotal reports or uncontrolled series.
Among the components of (TCM) herbal Treatment agents possess complex biological activities that could affect many aspects of carcinogenesis such as cell growth and proliferation, host-tumour interactions, immune function and differentiation. Despite a fairly extensive series of laboratory studies detailing many biological effects of botanical agents, few clinical trials have been completed to test specific hypotheses regarding the mode of action of (TCM) herbal Treatment. Most (TCM) herbal Treatment therapies have been empirically applied in a series of patients with descriptive results provided. The summaries of a few studies highlighted in this review can provide some evidence of safety but generally do not possess the design and results to verify clinical effectiveness. Nevertheless, the theory of TCM herbal Treatment coupled with laboratory studies and safety information can serve as the basis for the design of more definitive trials of (TCM) herbal Treatment for specific indications in breast cancer.
There is increasing interest and growing opportunities for investigative approaches that could ultimately verify or reject TCM herbal Treatment and specific botanical agents. Some of these initiatives in the area of breast cancer prevention and Treatment are outlined.
