We hardly have time for things like self-care. […]

關注女性健康,預防乳腺癌

關注女性健康,預防乳腺癌

Written by on October 31, 2016 in Infographic with 0 Comments

10月是美國乳腺癌宣導月。USANA為您準備了一個信息圖表,幫您快速了解乳腺癌,希望能幫助您提高防範意識,并降低患病風險。請跟你的朋友和家人分享這篇文章,提高大家對乳腺癌的意識。 患病風險不限於大齡女性 假設一位女性可以活到90歲,則大約12.4%或1/8的女性會在一生的某個時間被診斷罹患乳腺癌;這稱為終生罹病風險。但是要知道,這個患病風險隨著女性的年齡而變化。因此,一個70歲的女性罹患乳腺癌的風險實際上是1/26。1/8這個數字對理解乳腺癌的整體發病率很重要,但乳腺癌的發病率與個體差異有關。 美國國家癌症研究所的網站有一個乳腺癌風險評估工具,可以幫助你確定自己患乳腺癌的相對風險,但還是要諮詢你的醫生來確定個人患病的具體風險因素。 女性健康殺手 乳腺癌是美國癌症死亡的第四大原因,也是女性被確診最多的癌症。 2009-2013年間,統計數字表明,每10萬名女性中,乳腺癌的死亡人數為21.5人,概率大約是0.02%。死亡者當中,主要的人群為年齡在55-64歲的女性,其次是65-74歲的女性。 罹患乳腺癌后,其生存率取決於患者的乳腺癌發生階段。非侵入性(0期)和早期侵入性乳腺癌(第1期和第2期)的存活率比第3期和第4期更高。在1990年至2013年期間,乳腺癌死亡率下降了37%(約249,000例死亡)。這可能是由於早期發現、診斷方式的改善和得到了更好的治療。 您的患病風險有多大? 關於增加患病風險的因素,目前已有深入的研究。有關該研究的進一步資訊,請參閱Susan G. Komen®的Factors That AffectBreast Cancer Risk(影響乳腺癌風險因素)。已經研究過的一些風險因素包括:體重增加、種族與族群、遺傳基因突變、更年期荷爾蒙治療和運動,這些可能增加您乳腺癌的風險。 如何降低患病風險? 最重要的是,與您的醫生談談你個人的乳腺癌風險,包括家族病史,並做定期乳房X線檢查、一年一次的臨床乳腺癌檢查,和每月進行自我乳房檢查。注意體內的變化,並保持健康的生活。 圖表設計:Parrin Habibpour  資料來源: American Cancer Society.
