How to stop unwanted breast cancer symptoms
The world is full of scary stories of unwanted breast growth, but a new study finds that breast cancer can also make you feel better after surgery.
Dr. Marlene Kravitz, a breast cancer survivor, spoke with HuffPost Live’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta about her experience at Johns Hopkins.
Kravitz is the founder of the online medical community, Breast Cancer Resolve.
She is also the author of the book, “How to Stop Breast Cancer Symptoms.”
“My goal is to be able to help women and men who are at risk to develop breast cancer and how they can take steps to stop those symptoms,” Kravz told Gupta.
When doctors first began to study the potential role of estrogen in breast cancer, they didn’t think it would be that important, Kravtz said.
But now, we know that estrogen is an important hormone for breast cancer survival.
But what we didn’t know until recently is that estrogen also plays a role in many other breast cancer risks, including increased risk of infections.
“For example, if you have a breast that has been infected, you can get an infection in your other breast that is also infected,” Kovitz said.
“This could lead to cancerous growths that are in your brain and can spread to other parts of your body, and ultimately lead to death.”
There is currently no known way to prevent or treat breast cancer.
The best way to stop breast cancer is to stop the growth, said Kravetz.
“But even if you stop the breast cancer growth, if there’s a scar, it could be that you’ll still be at risk of infection,” she said.
If you think you have breast cancer at a certain age, Kovtz recommends having an ultrasound.
It can help detect a tumor at a very early stage, which could also help you stop growing your breast.
In addition to being a cancer survivor and the founder and CEO of Breast Cancer RESolve, Kovaitz has helped other women recover from breast cancer treatments.
She said that if you’re in the process of breast cancer treatment, you should seek a second opinion.
“Women who have had successful treatment are more likely to survive,” she told Gupta on HuffPost Live.
“And so, if they are still at risk, there are things that you can do to help them.”
