For many women, breast cancer risk is often at the back of our minds wondering when it will happen to us. Those pink ribbons are a warning to all women to be diligent with their health as death rates from breast cancer are higher than any other cancer besides lung cancer.
Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women – breastcancer.org
Identifying the risk of breast cancer early is the BEST way to battle breast cancer.
The American Cancer Society states identifying breast cancer early and getting state-of-the-art cancer treatment are the most important strategies for battling breast cancer. Unfortunately, most women don’t show any symptoms of breast cancer in the beginning. This is why screening and identifying breast cancer risk as early as possible is very important.
Mammogram testing is used most commonly to screen for any breast lumps usually recommended for women at the age of 40. Mammograms are not perfect however, some smaller lumps can still be missed. A small lump can start to grow years before other symptoms develop.
A new health approach to screening for breast cancer that is little known about is taking the breast cancer risk assessment lab test. Adding an additional screening option to the mammogram could increase your chances of catching breast cancer earlier.
The breast cancer risk assessment tests for “good” and “bad” estrogen levels and analyzes their ratios to generate breast cancer risk.
Did you know there is more than one type of estrogen in your body? Most people don’t know this and this is why most people don’t know about this additional screening for breast cancer. This knowledge could save lives. Please share this information.
The “good” estrogen:
- 2-hydroxyestrone (2-OHE1) – High levels are ideal to reduce cancer growth.
- 2-hydroxyestradiol (2-OHE2) – Shown to exhibit anticancer effects.
- 2-methoxyestrone (2-OMeE1) – Shown to have anticancer effects and is ideal in high levels.
- 4-methoxyestrone (4-OMeE1) – Non-cancerous and generally does not require treatment at high levels in the body.
The “bad” estrogen:
- 4-hydroxyestrone (4-OHE1) – Levels should be low, as high levels may damaged DNA thus promoting cancer.
- 16-a-hydroxyestrone (16a-OHE1) – High levels may encourage tumor development.
Here is a sample lab report from True Health Labs here.
The lab report will have dietary recommendations and further testing to help reduce the “bad” estrogen that increases breast cancer risk.
Breast cancer is the most deadly cancer for women second to lung cancer.
There are ways to diagnose early for the best treatment and prognosis.
The Mammogram is the most common screening test but is not perfect.
The test is easy at home urine sample mailed back to the lab. Results are sent back via e-mail. No doctor order needed.
This new approach to breast cancer screening can save lives.
