Women play multitude of roles in each family at any stage of their lives. Doting mother, big sister, caring friend, and yes, that also include being #TitasofManila (or wherever they may be, in which case we can substitute Manila with their current residence). And at any stage, one can never know when the big “C” (specially breast cancer) would impact their lives.
Getting affected by cancer in general boils down to three factors: age, lifestyle, and genetics. For breast cancer, most women are susceptible to it on or before menopausal. Women who also menstruated early also have a higher risk of getting breast cancer due to longer and excessive exposure to hormones estrogen and progesterone. Those who were underwent chest radiation for other cancer-related treatments also has a higher risk of incurring the dreaded disease. Likewise, women who consumed large intake of alcohol are also at higher risk.
Like the popular saying, prevention is better than cure, and significantly altering lifestyle may hamper breast cancer at bay. One of the effective ways to combat this is to get yourself allergic to stress. Stress can’t be avoided totally, but the thought of incurring allergic reactions might make you think twice of stressing yourself out over small stuff. It’s all about perception.
Speaking of perception, having a healthy and sound mind also does the trick. Surrounding yourself with people who truly loves and appreciates you is also a great immune booster. Amplify your immune system protection by means of exercise. American Cancer Society recommends women must get at least 150 minutes of intense workout sprawled throughout a week. Arming oneself with HMO benefits pays off in the long run, should one find herself in need of medical treatments. Similarly, for breast cancer awareness month, Cardinal Santos Medical Center offered 20% discount on mammography and breast ultrasound.
