We know where they are. We know they have a function. Do you know what they’re made of? Glands, fatty tissue, and fibrous tissue are the major components of the breast. Ducts connect the glands to the nipple and are the channels through which milk and other secretions flow. Breast tissue is fed nutrients and oxygen through blood vessels and capillaries which are also pathways for removing waste materials from the breast. With so many different parts, it’s not a surprise that the breast is a body part that can develop issues.
Breast health isn’t only important in the context of cancer
Lumps, bumps, redness, swelling- there are a variety of rather benign conditions that can affect the breast that do not involve cancer. A bump in the breast might be a cyst which is a fluid-filled sac under the skin. Redness or swelling? These could result from mastitis, which is an infection in the breast tissue. Breast pain can be associated with these conditions as well.
Just do it: self-check and your doctor
You know you should do it. Those breast self-checks may feel awkward to perform, but they are critical to maintaining breast health. A number of resources are available to guide you through the process, but our friends at Keep A Breast have made it even easier with their new app! Check it out here to see how easy it is to perform a self-check.
Also, make sure to follow up with your doctor for doctor-performed exams as well. This is the best way to make sure that you catch any oddities early and is the best way to give yourself the best chance if you are ever diagnosed with breast cancer.
