Dr. Hedda Dyer Speaks on Breast Cancer
Dr. Hedda Dyer has informed SAT News that there are many innovations in Breast Cancer. The most effective way to detect breast cancer is by mammography, and a clinical breast exam can complement mammography screening.
However medical organizations do not all agree on the recommendation for breast self-exams, which is an option for women starting in their 20s.
Dr. Hedda Dyer says the breast self-exam is a way that you can check your breasts for changes (such as lumps or thickenings).
It includes looking at and feeling your breast. When breast cancer is detected in its early stages, your chances of surviving the disease are greatly improved.
Dr. Dyer stated that as people get closer to age 40, more fiber and breast tissues are developed in the breasts.
She says most people worry when they realize that there is a lump on their breast, however she advises those people to see a doctor first.
Dr. Dyer added that a “lump” on the breast is not the only sign to detect breast cancer.
She says some patients hear the word “cancer” and automatically panic without thinking that there are ways to treat it.
Dr. Dyer advises the public to eat regularly and exercise, as well as getting tested.
