These things before the mammogram lead to a misdiagnosis

Hadeer Mir: Screening is necessary annually after 40 or if there is a family history of breast cancer

Consultant Radiation Oncologist, Dr. Hadeer Mustafa Mir, revealed that there are some things that women should follow when undergoing a mammogram. To make sure that there are no changes in the breasts that cause “breast cancer”; The most important of which is not to wear deodorants; Because it contains particles of aluminum that appear in the examination in the form of white dots, which may lead to an error in the diagnosis, and not to put any creams, oils or perfumes on the body before conducting the examination; In order not to affect the result of the x-rays, it is preferable to conduct the examination a week after the date of the menstrual cycle. It is also important to avoid wearing any jewelry or necklaces on the neck on the day of the examination, in addition to wearing comfortable and loose clothes.

Mir said: Mammography is used to detect abnormal growths in the tissues of the breasts through an x-ray; The abnormal changes detected include small calcifications, cysts, and tumors that may not be noticed during the self-examination of the breast, and thus the mammogram is the first step to determine the accuracy of the injury or not, and to monitor the presence of any signs that can be observed, as breast cancer is formed due to a change in the work and growth of cells Forming breast tissue without the ability to control it, which turns it into cancerous cells with the ability of these cells to spread.

He added that all women are advised to have a mammogram every year at least, starting from the age of forty, and before that if there is a family history of breast cancer, noting that the most important risk factors are family health history and genetics, if first-degree relatives contracted it because of the factor Hereditary and not for other reasons, so it is necessary to do periodic examinations for breast and ovarian cancer. Also among the risk factors are the delay in pregnancy after the age of 30 years, or not being pregnant, not breastfeeding, and puberty at an early age before 12 years, and the delay in menopause after the age of 55 years, And cases of previous infection with malignant tumors in the breast or some types of benign tumors, obesity, lack of exercise, and advanced age, especially over the age of 55 years.

Mir continued: Breast cancer, if not treated, leads to ulceration and inflammation of the skin, the proliferation of cancer cells in the breast, and the spread of the tumor to the lymph nodes, which leads to an increased risk of cancer spreading to other sensitive organs (such as: the brain, liver, lung). As a result, the functions of these organs are affected and stopped, and the patient’s health deteriorates and then enters the advanced stages of the disease.

Regarding treatment and prevention, Meir said: The treatment is determined according to the diagnosis of the disease (the type of tumor, its stage, and its size) and the patient’s health status. There are chemotherapy, biological therapy, radiotherapy, hormonal therapy, surgery, and targeted therapy.

As for prevention, there is primary prevention, which includes a healthy lifestyle, which includes healthy food, physical activity, maintaining a healthy weight, consulting a doctor in the event of using alternative hormones, ensuring breastfeeding, avoiding smoking, early detection, and secondary prevention, including breast self-examination.
