Breast Cancer Awareness

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The chance of developing invasive breast cancer at some time in a woman’s life is a little less than 1 in 8 (12%).  The American Cancer Society estimates  that   207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women  this year and about 54,010 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer). Approximately 39,840 women will die from breast cancer this year. In 2009 there were 1200 new cases of breast cancer in Nebraska. At this time there are over 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. What causes breast cancer is still unknown. Is it genetic? Is it lifestyle? Is it a combination of both? While we don’t know the exact cause there are certain risk factors that you can control to decrease your risk. By eating healthy, maintaining an average weight, minimizing alcohol intake, quitting smoking, exercising regularly and minimizing stress you can minimize your risk for breast cancer. Other risk factors such as age, gender, ethnicity and family history that you can’t control. Early detection is the key to saving lives. Women in their 20s and 30s should have a clinical breast exam (CBE) as part of a regular health exam by a health professional, at least every 3 years.

Women should also begin yearly mammograms at the age of 40 and earlier if there is a significant family history of breast cancer.  If there is  a... read more

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

What does it mean, and why me? At it’s core, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, or PCOS, is a fairly complex hormonal situation, which involves alteration in the way that the hormones produced by the ovaries and brain communicate, and sometimes changes in insulin sensitivity. It is a disorder that can present in a lot of ways for a lot of very different women. With regard to diagnosis, two out of three following findings are required: 1. Signs of irregular ovulation, such as the irregularity, or lack, of periods 2. Signs of hyperandrogenism, such as dark hair on the stomach and chin or severe acne 3. Multiple small cysts noted on the ovaries at the time of ultrasound Although there are various laboratory tests that can be performed to confirm the diagnosis, your doctor can often diagnose you clinically using the above three symptoms and signs. So, what does all of that mean, and what do you need to do? It depends on your goals, as PCOS means different things for women that want children versus those who do not. If you are overweight, occasionally loss of 5 – 10% of body weight and regular exercise can tip your hormones back toward regular cycling. However, we also sometimes see PCOS in very thin framed women, and so obviously this doesn’t always fix the problem. Treatment from there is either geared toward pregnancy, or making sure that you have regular cycles to prevent the buildup of uterine lining in the uterus. Metformin, which is a medication used in diabetes therapy, is often helpful for reestablishing ovulation, and can be used to help... read more
