1. You felt a lump in your breast and it always means you have breast cancer.
It's a small percentage of breast lumps only that will turn out to be cancer. If you discover a
persistent lump in your breast or notice any changes in breast tissue, never ignore it. You
must see a physician for a clinical breast examination. He or she may possibly order breast
imaging studies to determine if this lump is of concern or not.
Take charge of your health by performing routine breast self-exams, establishing ongoing
communication and counseling with your doctor, getting an annual clinical breast exam, and
scheduling your routine screening mammograms.
2. Only women get breast cancer, men do not.
Quite the contrary, each year it is estimated that approximately 2,190 men will be diagnosed
with breast cancer and 410 will die. While this percentage is still small, men should also check
themselves periodically by doing a breast self-exam while in the shower and reporting any
changes to their physicians.
Breast cancer in men is usually detected as a hard lump underneath the nipple and areola.
Men carry a higher mortality than women do, primarily because awareness among men is less
and they are less likely to assume a lump is breast cancer, which can cause a delay in seeking
3. Most breast cancers run in families.
Only about 5% to 10% of breast cancers are thought to be hereditary, which means they
are caused by abnormal genes passed from parent to child. Lifestyle and environmental
factors can have an impact on breast cancer risk.
4. There is nothing you can do to lower your risk of developing breast cancer.
Lifestyle and environmental factors can have an impact on breast cancer risk. To keep your
risk as low as it can be, maintain a healthy weight, exercise regularly, and limit the amount
of alcohol you drink.
5. Bras cause breast cancer.
Underwire bras do not cause breast cancer. A 2014 scientific study looked at the link
between wearing a bra and breast cancer. There was no real difference in risk between
women who wore a bra and women who didn't wear a bra.
