Posted by Healthca Sep 16, 2011

Breast is the most important woman from anywhere on earth, it ensures that motherhood has natural beauty crown shape. however it's additionally terribly susceptible to disease risk may even take take the life of the woman that if prevention isn't known. so to do for prevention and early detection of cancer. the following are ways that to help you prevent and studio soon to treat patients promptly

A breast abscess is an accumulation of pus in the breast tissue. This is usually preceded by infection of the breast (mastitis). Trauma (injury) and infection in the breast produce symptoms typical of infection anywhere else in the body, except that in the breast, infections tend to become walled off from surrounding tissue, producing small abscesses. These may resemble cysts.



Breast infections are usually caused by common bacteria found on normal skin (Staphylococcus aureus). Infections occur almost exclusively in breastfeeding mothers. The bacteria enter through a break in the skin, usually a cracked nipple during the early days of breastfeeding. The infected area becomes filled with pus.

Breast infections not related to breastfeeding must be differentiated from breast cancer. Rarely, young to middle-aged women who are not breastfeeding develop subareolar abscesses (located beneath the areola, the darker area around the nipple). This condition virtually exclusively occurs in smokers.

Potential abscesses in breast tissue other than the subareolar area are extremely rare in women not breastfeeding and should be surgically removed or biopsied.


    Breast pain, tenderness, redness or hardness, swelling, a sensation of heat in the affected area

    Fever and chills

    A general ill feeling

    Tender lymph nodes under armpits

Risk factors

The following factors may be associated with breast abscess:

    Postpartum (after giving birth) pelvic infection



    Diabetes mellitus

    Use of steroid medications

    Low immunity states

    Heavy cigarette smoking

    Silicone implants


At the moment breast cancer cannot be prevented, but it can be diagnosed much earlier than before.


Early diagnosis is possible with routine mammography and early biopsy of suspicious lesions. The earlier cancer is found, the better the chances of a cure.

American specialists advise that women should have a baseline mammogram at the age of 40. Between 40 and 50 years of age, mammograms are recommended every other year. After age 50, annual mammograms are recommended.


Between 20 and 39, women should have a clinical breast examination every three years, and annually from 39 on.


The following may help prevent breast cancer:


    A low-fat diet (less than 20 percent fat), with plenty of fruits and vegetables, and ideal weight maintenance.

    When cancer is found and treated early, there are more treatment choices and a better chance of recovery. Talk to your doctor about symptoms to watch for, and an appropriate check-up schedule.

    Between clinical check-ups, do a monthly breast self-exam (BSE). Every woman's breasts are different, and they change with age, the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, menopause, or taking oral contraceptives or other hormones. It may be normal for your breasts to feel lumpy, swollen or tender at times, such as immediately before a period or during pregnancy. By doing a monthly BSE, after age 20, you learn what is normal for your breasts, and are more likely to detect changes.

    Breastfeeding may slightly decrease risk, especially if continued for 18-24 months.

    Strenuous exercise in youth might provide life-long protection. Even moderate physical activity as an adult can lower risk.
