With the acceleration of the pace of life, the incidence of breast hyperplasia is gradually increasing. In the face of breast hyperplasia, some women do not take it seriously, and some women are worried and worried about the risk of cancer. So, what should we do in the face of breast hyperplasia?
The main cause of the imbalance of the endocrine system
Breast hyperplasia is a common clinical benign breast disease, which mainly refers to the hyperplasia and degeneration of breast tissue. The disease has a certain relationship with the imbalance of the patient’s endocrine system. For example, the diet tends to be high in fat and animal protein (fat can be converted into estrogen). The use of some beauty and body products containing exogenous estrogen may cause estrogen in the body. The level increases, thereby increasing the incidence of breast hyperplasia.
Breast hyperplasia includes a wide range of conditions, including fibrocystic breast disease, cystic hyperplasia, and breast lobule or tissue hyperplasia. The disease mainly occurs in women aged 20-50. This is because most of the breast hyperplasia can be relieved to a certain extent due to the decline of estrogen after menopause.
Main symptoms of breast swelling
Breast hyperplasia has different characteristics in different age groups. In unmarried, married, unfertile, and not breastfeeding women, the main manifestation is breast tenderness, which can affect both sides, but most of them are heavy on one side. The tenderness before menstruation is obvious, and it relieves and stops gradually after menstruation. In women after the age of 35, the main manifestations are breast lumps, milk pain and tenderness are mild, and have nothing to do with the menstrual cycle. Touching the breast with hands can feel different sizes, oblate or irregular shapes, and flexible texture. Nodules, with unclear boundaries, can be pushed. In women after the age of 45, it often manifests as single or multiple scattered cystic masses with clear boundaries, often accompanied by dull pain, pain, or burning.
In addition, a small number of patients with breast hyperplasia may suffer from sweating, poor temperament, and irregular menstruation due to their own endocrine dysfunction.
Regular inspection is critical
Many young women worry that breast hyperplasia will further develop into breast cancer. This point should be analyzed in light of specific circumstances. If it’s just periodic breast pain and lumps, it disappears after menstruation, and the risk of canceration of breast hyperplasia is extremely low. But if it is a solid mass, and the pain and mass persist, then be vigilant. In any case, patients with breast hyperplasia must be aware of regular checkups. If it is ordinary breast hyperplasia, it should be reviewed every 6-12 months; if it is a patient with atypical hyperplasia on pathological biopsy, follow-up every 3 months is required. 1 time.
Clinically, the main method of breast examination is palpation. Commonly used auxiliary examinations include B-ultrasound and mammography, among which B-ultrasound, which can be performed multiple times without trauma, is the first choice. In addition to professional equipment examinations, it is also important for patients to conduct self-examinations frequently-look at their breast skin, appearance and secretions in the mirror, and at the same time raise their arms appropriately, or bend down to observe the breast border, usually with the right hand to check the left Examine the right breast with the side breast and the left hand. If the breast is palpated and there are scattered granular materials, or changes in breast shape (asymmetry on both sides), orange peel or redness and ulceration of breast skin, swollen lymph nodes under the arm, and nipple are observed If there are bloody or other abnormal secretions, breast skin depression, etc., you should go to the hospital for professional examination immediately.
Daily care cannot be ignored
In order to avoid excessive tension, depression, sadness and other negative emotions affecting the endocrine system, patients should try their best to maintain an optimistic mood. Under the guidance of a doctor, they can use some drugs for soothing the liver and relieving stagnation, such as Xiaoyao Pills and Rupixiao.
Obesity can aggravate the symptoms of breast hyperplasia. Therefore, in daily life, patients should reduce the intake of sweets, animal fats, and fried foods; increase walnuts, black fungus, milk, yellow croaker, black sesame, mushrooms, black soybeans and other coarse grain nuts Food intake, especially soy milk, tofu and other foods containing soy, because they are rich in soy isoflavones, can reduce the level of estrogen to a certain extent and relieve the symptoms of breast discomfort.
In order to maintain the stability of the endocrine system, patients should pay attention to work and rest, maintain a harmonious and regular sex life, and avoid excessive intake of estrogen and excessive use of beauty products and contraceptives.
It should be noted that patients with breast hyperplasia should not blindly massage themselves, nor go to irregular medical beauty institutions for treatment. Breast hyperplasia can be understood as an increase in the number of cell layers, and massage cannot reduce the number of cells.
