Health and Fitness News
I will be eternally grateful to you for how you healed by back!

I started training with Coach Berry when I was 61 years old.  For four months, I had suffered a great deal of back pain and knew I need to do something different. When I began with Coach, he asked me how I was feeling.  After a lifetime of training with a number of different trainers I could only say I didn't feel great.  My back pain caused me to see chiropractors and accupuncturists, but I found no relief.  After one deep tissue massage, Coach immediately had me feeling better.  After two months of training Coach had me back to 100%.  He knows what he is doing when it comes to training and injuries.  He trains people to perform exercises correctly to avoid injuries.  I have worked with many different trainers all over the San Diego County and Coach Berry is the best, most effective trainer I have meet.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness levels.

Step 1 in the Battle Against Breast Cancer

Understanding the symptoms of breast cancer and acting when you see them may make all the difference.

As breast cancer affects so many people, it’s important to be aware of the signs and symptoms of this dreaded disease and perform monthly breast self-exams. Knowing what to look for is the first step in winning the battle against breast cancer. Catching it early will improve your prognosis.

Remember, when an abnormality is found, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have cancer. As many as 9 out of every 10 lumps discovered by women under the age of 50 are benign and nothing to be feared. However, many medical experts state that it’s better to be safe than sorry and encourage those with lumps to seek a medical professional to confirm or rule out breast cancer.

But lumps aren’t the only signs of cancer.

Lumps

A lump is usually the first sign of cancer. Often undetected in its earliest stages, as the cancer grows, a lump may be discovered in the armpit area or in the breast. Many women may notice changes in their breasts during their menstrual cycle but a lump to be concerned about will persist throughout their cycle. Breast cancer lumps are usually pain free, though some may cause a prickly feeling.

Monthly self-exams are vitally important for early detection. Being familiar with your normal breast tissue will help you detect small changes. Educate yourself or have your doctor instruct you on the correct way to do a self-exam. Start giving yourself a breast exam starting at age 20.

Unless at an increased risk for breast cancer, women should get their first mammogram at age 35 to provide a baseline. Then, starting at age 40, it is recommended that women undergo a yearly mammogram. This type of screening can detect lumps too small to feel. If you’re 40 or older, don’t skip your mammogram, as it could give doctors an earlier start to your treatment.

Change in Size or Shape

Another warning sign for breast cancer is unexplained changes in the shape, size, or appearance of the breast. Look at your breasts in the mirror on a regular basis to compare them.

While examining your breasts, look for unusual swelling or thickening, especially if the swelling is only on one side. The inflammation may be in your breast, around your collarbone, or under your arm. Opposite of swelling, a dimpling, indentation, or strange shrinking of the breast is also a symptom to watch for. Such symptoms could indicate a lump that’s undetectable from the outside.

Changes in the appearance and shape of the nipple are also a concern. If the nipple begins to invert or retract, it could be a sign of cancer.

Change in Texture or Temperature

Be on the lookout for unusual skin patterns on the breast, areola, or nipple. Any redness, roughness, scaling, or rash could be a sign of something going on inside. Watch for skin that may look like the texture of an orange peel. Inspect your breasts for any areas that may appear different from surrounding skin or the other breast.

A breast or nipple that feels warm to the touch or is itchy is another symptom to watch for and should not be dismissed.

Pain

While the vast majority of breast cancer lumps are painless, there are some that do cause pain or tenderness. A lump that is tender should still be checked by your doctor.

A Discharge

For women not breastfeeding, a discharge isn’t normal and may signify a problem. Usually resulting from a benign condition, a discharge that’s bloody or clear could be a symptom of cancer.

See Your Doctor

If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s right to be concerned. The good news is these symptoms are often harmless and benign. It’s best to be safe, however and make an appointment with your doctor.

On the flip side, just because you don’t notice any of these symptoms doesn’t mean you’re safe and sound. The best way to keep tabs on your breast health is through regular screenings.
