Many non-living substances such as fluids, hormones , and pheromones are also important accessories to the reproductive system. For instance, seasonal rainfall is often assumed to be an indicator of feed conditions while stocking rate has been used as a substitute for feed intake Abel et al, The buff-breasted sandpiper displays his armpit wingpit? Remarks on an alleged Exposé' transl. Also, the vegetation characteristics of an area e. They spread a retrovirus that turns males of other species into pseudo-Teresians, and then he's driven to return to the planet where they'll extract his DNA, fatally.
According to Usenet postings by the creator , female Pak'ma'ra are tiny, non-sentient beings who live inside said hump. Finally, in one episode Ivanova tricked one alien into believing that a strange dance with nonsensical chanting —which seem to be an abbreviated script for a one-night stand—and rubbing of hands was Bizarre Human Reproduction. At the end of the episode, Ivanova is left a gift by the alien: A trinket of some kind and a note saying "next time Part way through the pregnancy, the female transfers the fetus to the male , where it slips inside his belly somehow and attaches an umbilicus to one of the male's nipples.
It is the pregnant male who gets to have the wacky Born in an Elevator scene at the end. In the original V miniseries, Willie recognizes Robin is pregnant because she's developing a ring of discoloration around her neck, which suggests that such rings are normal for Visitor mothers-to-be.
His comments imply the ring becomes more complete as the pregnancy progresses. In a sense, this is Bizarre in how normal the reproduction was. The Visitors are reptiles from another world posing as humanoids presumably mammalian. Somehow Robin was impregnated through what appeared to be intercourse, just like it would be between humans.
The V remake is a little strange. The normal V reproduction involves a queen like Anna mating with a male, after which she eats him for nutrients. She then lays hundreds, if not thousands, of fertilized eggs with one or two being "queen" eggs. While initially thought impossible, it's discovered that Half-Human Hybrids are indeed a possibility but may be more V than human. Only one was shown onscreen, the product of a V father and human mother.
However, the final episode shows a queen V mating with a human and taking a bite out of him, implying she has been impregnated. When the hosts gets hot enough, the alien hatches into a long-clawed, violent creature that desires more heat. Eventually, it sheds its skin to become a "normal" grey alien. The Vespiform can mate with a human thanks to phase-shifting capabilities. Thanks to phase-shifting capabilities.
Season 2 gives us the Nostrovite, in which the male carries fertilized eggs in their mouth, passes them on to a suitable humanoid host and that makes the host look 9 months pregnant overnight , and then the female comes to claim the spawn In '' Andromeda the Magog reproduce asexually, laying their eggs in a host which then eats the host from the inside.
Before making First Contact with an alien planet, the crew have to watch a squick-inducing Instructional Film warning them of the dangers of Boldly Coming. Let's learn about another Alien Sex Disease. This crew member had intercourse with a Glygonthian octopoid.
Let's take a close look at his genitals. And on the pustules, warts. Soon his entire groin explodes revealing five baby octopoids, each with his face. Remember — alien sex is danger sex. He is warned the morphlings will seek the nearest available orifice for birth. Cut to the Cat, naked, face-down and sweating as Rimmer, Lister and Kryten act as midwives. The Cat then endures giving birth - presumably anally - to things like a Rubik Cube with spiky corners, a very large beachball, a model cabin crusier with sharp prow, and a pineapple.
Moclans reproduce by laying eggs, although they are male. Or at least it seems that way to begin with One episode of The Muppet Show depicts how creatures on the planet Koosbane reproduce, the "Galley-oh-Hoop-Hoop", which starts with the male doing a dance to impress the female, and then the two of them pacing off and charging headlong at each other, resulting in an explosion and a litter of babies.
Ford's father "both fathered and uncled" him, which could mean Ford is the product of incestuous relations, or just more of this trope. Illithid Elder Brains composed of the disembodied brains of dead illithids asexually produce eggs in pools of water. The eggs hatch into tadpoles that cannibalize each other until the survivors reach maturity. Mature tadpoles are inserted into living adult humanoids to devour and replace the nervous system. This results in an adult illithid. Just to be clear, if an illithid tadpole somehow survives for long enough without a host, it doesn't die.
Instead, it grows up into a Neothelid, which resembles a dragon-sized, slime-caked worm with a mass of tentacles for a face, psychic powers, and the ability to breathe acid. Illithids prefer not to talks about them. Beholders also asexually reproduce. After becoming pregnant, they gorge themselves until the fetuses become too large and pinch the esophagus shut. When the children come to term, the parent vomits up its entire uterus which does not regenerate. Volo's Guide to Monsters gives us another explanation: In Infernum , both the Legions of Hell and the spawn Hell's equivalent of animals have this.
Spawn reproduce by dying; when you kill a spawn, multiple smaller, weaker spawn of the same kind will emerge from the corpse within a minute or two. Kill those, and even more spawn that are even smaller will emerge, ad infinitum, until the resultant spawn is too weak to "divide" in this fashion any more and simply dies upon death.
Demons, meanwhile, reproduce through Spawning Pits Spawning Pits are filled with alchemical acids that dissolve living demons, but catalyse their organs, causing anywhere from one to thirty-six "larvae" to chew their way out of the decaying husk. After about six months, these maggot-like creatures pupate inside cocoons and then emerge as demons of the same kind as their "parent". Making things even more bizarre: The first demons were born when fallen angels had sex with spawn.
Orks are partly fungus-based; they shed spores throughout their lives that can grow into any kind of Orkoid lifeform, and release a large number of spores upon death. They qualify as Alien Kudzu in that every single Orkoid has the potential to grow into a full " Orkiformed" ecosystem. The only way to prevent this is by burning the bodies.
Tyranid Genestealers implant genetic material in victims that causes them to form a cult-like devotion to the Genestealer and a drive to mate. Each generation spawned by the cult members will look less and less like a Genestealer until the fifth or sixth generation, which exactly resembles the host species.
The next generation will then be "purestrain" Genestealers, and the cycle will start over. The fluff book Xenology hints that, while Eldar appear to procreate in the same manner as humans, males may have to make multiple deliveries of genetic material to fully conceive, as opposed to humans. The actual canonicity of this has never been established, though. The Scarlet Stalker captures human beings and inserts eggs into their bodies. The eggs keep the humans paralyzed until the eggs hatch and the young eat their way out of the body.
When a Galka is nearing the end of their current life through natural causes, they sense it and go on a spiritual pilgrimage to a high mountain and await their current life's end. According to Galkan beliefs, a magnificent light will appear and grant that Galka a new younger body, and seemingly fragments of the memories of their past life.
No one else has witnessed this miracle, and no Galka recalls their personal experience of the matter, so there's some who believe it is simply folk lore. But there appears to be truth to it, because after a Galka leaves for their final journey, a new Galkan child arrives to the same Galka village within less than a year latter. No one however, is sure how Galkan's then replenish their numbers, due to death from violence or illness. Mass Effect Asari reproduction is based on 'melding'.
The randomized version of the asari's genes is then combined with an unchanged sample of them for purposes of producing offspring. Sexual contact is not required, but not uncommon. Even more weirdly, mating within their own species is discouraged in order to avoid certain extremely nasty genetic defects that can occur from such a union.
Much more disturbing with the Reapers, which melt down an entire sentient species into some sort of goo, which they mold into a new Reaper. Salarian females lay eggs throughout their lives, several a year. Fertilized eggs hatch as females, unfertilized ones as males. Because of the incredibly lethal Death World they're native to, krogan females are capable of producing thousands of offspring it's never mentioned whether they lay eggs or give live birth, but given their generally reptilian appearance it's probably the former.
The kett in Andromeda actually cannot reproduce; all sex organs on them are vestigial. So how are new kett made? They transform members of other species into new kett via a highly painful process referred to as "exaltation". The Archon implies that they have assimilated over a thousand species into more kett. In Patapon , you create new individuals by burying certain materials under a special tree.
In an old Maxis game, Unnatural Selection , genetically engineered creatures reproduce via "melting into a skin colored blob, combinating and laying a baby version of themselves" you can watch this here. It is also possible that they require another creature such as the player to uproot them in order to enter their mobile phase and complete the cycle.
While it's All There in the Manual , Gears apparently lay eggs or the children come out in a protective cocoon they later hatch out of. One of Atrus's journals from the Myst games describe an other-Agely creature called a "ting", which seals itself in a rock crevice, from which a bunch of lizard-like "solastings" emerge a couple of months later.
It's unstated how the solastings give rise to the next generation of tings. In Spore , Alien Animals dance together, then one of them lays an Easter egg and then you can see if you have enough DNA stored up to tweak your critter for the next generation. Most Chao enter the flower phase naturally with time, though it's possible to induce it by feeding the Chao some heart-shaped fruit.
Dwarf Fortress It has been suggested that many of the species reproduce via spores rather than in the conventional fashion, given the way that you can chain up members of different sexes at opposite ends of the fortress and still get offspring. A more deliberate design choice can be seen in the form of night trolls, single gender monsters who kidnap members of the opposite sex, transforms them into "spouses", and proceed to reproduce in the normal way. The children are always the same sex as the night troll parent, and the spouse is often slain or simply abandoned which inevitably means death at the hands of their former species.
Notably, night trolls are happy to prey on elves, dwarves or humans, but goblins just don't do it for them.
In the X-Universe the Teladi lay eggs that always hatch females if left unfertilized. For this reason space Teladi are effectively a One-Gender Race. Much like Xenomorphs, Chryssalids in X Com Enemy Unknown plant their seed into living hosts by viciously murdering them and vomiting eggs into the corpse, which turns humans into shambling zombies. If a zombie is left alive for too long, it will burst into a newborn Chrysalid, identical in size to a "mature" one, but with lighter skin color.
If the host dies while the poison is still in effect, they rapidly transform into an overgrown cocoon, which releases multiple newborn Chryssalids one at a time, three per corpse. While it's never shown how sex among Pokémon works, some aspects of their reproduction are defintely weird: Every species is part of one or two egg-groups and could mate with any other pokémon of the same egg group as long as it's of the opposite gender, even if there is vast size differences between the two.
The offspring will always be of the female's species, but with some of the male's moves. Ditto is a genderless Pokémon that can mate with any other fertile Pokémon regardless of gender. The offspring is never Ditto, but always the other Pokémon's species.
The only exception is Manaphy, which will always produce an Egg conatining a Phione which cannot evolve into Manaphy. Some species are male-only or female-only. The male-only species can only reproduce other members of his species with the help of Ditto. How these Pokémon propagate without Ditto's help is unexplained. Some species are genderless and only able to mate with Ditto. Much like Male-only species, how they do it without Ditto isn't explained. Some species cannot reproduce in-game, but some of them are seen to have eggs or babies in other media.
The Cosmog instantly appears after the "meeting" but the player doesn't get to see the exact details of what happens. And the daycare-owner still doesn't know where the eggs come from.
Some dialogue with NPCs even suggest that Pokémon eggs aren't even eggs in the biological sense and are more like "cradles" No explanation is given as to what this is supposed to mean.
Basically it reproduces like a real jellyfish. Other Ultra Beasts may have other methods of propagating that are different from the standard "male-and-female produce and egg in a daycare", such as Celesteela sprouting from the ground in its home world. Trials in Tainted Space is an erotic Space Opera which has the player boldly going to new planets to earn their fortune while Boldly Coming into every alien they meet.
While almost every alien has average human genitals the Nyrea have some thing far different. The males lack penises, instead they have sperm sacs inside a cavity in their hips. The larger female uses her spiked ovipositor, a organ that looks like a horse penis with spines at the tip, to rend the sperm sacs and suck up the sperm to fertilize her eggs.
If the female is an alpha of her group, she will make a lesser female gestate her eggs. The Glitch is a race of robots made to simulate evolution. Part of their programming is an inability to realize that they aren't ortganic beings though now and then a Glitch manages to break past the blocks , so they have a lot of internal blinds, including when reproduction is concerned.
When a Glitch couple decide it's time to start a family, they retreat to their bedroom. They then enter a trance-like state and proceed to a secret workshop none of them are consciously aware of, where they assemble their new offspring.
Upon completion, they leave the workshop and return home, after which they snap out of the trance. They will have no memory of the event, but are convinced that it was "very pleasant". The Floran are a race of plants and are technically genderless beyond cosmetic details. While nothing canonical is clarified about their reproduction, their respawning animation shows a seed sprouting into a pod that opens to release a reborn Floran.
Early beta versions also had "Floran pods" planted in fields. Presumably, the Floran reproduce by pollination leading to seeds that are planted and produce offspring without internal gestation. The Orphe are a vaguely insect-looking species that reproduce asexually.
The method is by sprinkling some "senirapa" water upon themselves even a single drop will suffice , which causes their body to spontaneously generate two new Orphe. The children possess all the memories of their parent. It is common for dying Orphe to do this as their final act, to ensure that their memories and experiences will not be lost, but the game suggests that they can do it at any time they please, as long as they have some of the water on hand.
And this is before one Orphe randomly undergoes a mutation that leads to the sudden birth of the first female of their species. The Zaruboggan seem to be a One-Gender Race , and also reproduce asexually. The precise method isn't gone into, but the word they use for producing a child is " regurgitation ". Despite being technically undead, the Draug of The Secret World have a very detailed and extremely unusual reproductive cycle: As the Draug egg inside them grows and swells , the Incubators will roam the area in search of a safe place to nest, before finally planting themselves in the ground, having completely transformed into a large egg-sac.
Eventually, after careful treatment with enzymes from the Broodsources, red weed and organic fertilizer, the egg-sac will split open and disgorge a new Draug warrior.
For good measure, old Draug who haven't been lucky enough to become Stronger with Age will eventually melt down into the fertilizer used to grow the next generation of Draug. They have one sex but identify as male or female if in a society that recognizes gender, like the USA. It normally takes two individuals to make an egg, made by secreting a certain substance - it takes two only due to the amount needed. Once the egg which looks like a meteor is formed, it lacks any DNA of its own.
DNA of anything can be put in through the openings that make it look like a meteor , and it will naturally create a new viable chimeric being inside it. Any number of sources can be used, the current record is twelve. There need not even be an Uryuom as one of the genetic parents. Basically, they reproduce via a genetic engineer's wet dream. And yes, some genetic engineers have noticed. Gender is irrelevant to reproduction.
All of the combined material is then basically mixed together, and a mother grub takes the best material and lays eggs for the whole species. As said in the comic, Trolls sure are weird! The Fridge Horror of this comes from the fact that trolls arrive at sexual maturity around the same time as humans do, and are at the same level of emotional and mental security. These are kids put to work sexing it up the second they are capable of "producing genetic material", and they have no idea what the hell is going on.
Also, trolls have a different idea of romance than humans do. They have four types to humans' one type. One is normal romance and one is based on hate. If a troll doesn't have a mate for both of these, the drones kill them for not being able to fill both buckets. The other two types of romance are platonic. The baby trolls are then raised by one of presumably dozens or hundreds of different types of "lusi" singular lusus which are different species that presumably reproduce normally.
They have a symbiotic relationship with trolls, where they adopt and raise troll children, as trolls never know their parents. This lead to a meme among Homestuck fans in which they react to any depiction of a pail or a bucket as extremely lewd and sexual, which in turn also makes this video completely unintentionally hilarious.
The mind boggles at what they might make of the Lancre Stick-and-Bucket Dance. Universes themselves have a bizarre means of reproduction, which involves Stable Time Loops , a video game which manipulates reality and draws the players into the game , a war between anthropomorphic chess pieces which one side is always destined to lose , and sped-up frog breeding.
Cherubs are even weirder than trolls. They can only mate with rivals, by a ritual where they typically go onto a black hole and turn into enormous, near-indestructable snakes that can only be harmed by one-another. Whoever loses the battle is impregnated with the young, and the Character Alignment of each child depends on which parent carries the young.
Leprechauns are possibly weirder than cherubs , although we've been spared the details. Their bizarre alien romance involves combinations of nine emotions, one of which equates to human love or troll matespritship, and most of which involve pranks and riddles. Unlike the four "quadrants" of troll romance, any of these relationships could lead to reproduction, following a "mating jig". Oh, and they seem to be a Single Gender Race.
Sam Starfall from the comic Freefall is a Sqid. Only a small number of Sqid are fertile, and those breed early. Upon breeding, both the male and female die. A litter of young is born and, Sqids being scavengers, the Sqidlings have a ready-made food source. Other adults come along and pick Sqidlings to raise a process described as being like picking a puppy.
These "Mentors" raise the young Sqid in their race's ideals of chicanery and stealing everything not nailed down or on fire. Schlock Mercenary The title character is a carbosilicate amorph , essentially a race of organic data-storage systems turned sentient. They typically reproduce by splitting off a part of themselves that contains their personality, and merging it with that of another. On top of that, due to the "sentient data-storage" bit, it's also possible to reproduce with non-amorphs through a period of observation - a process Commander Kevyn compared to marriage.
On top of that , two amorphs battling it out usually results in, rather than one or both parties dying, a single amorph with merged personality traits of both combatants. Also in this 'verse are the Qlavo, who conceive normally with males and females, but hand off responsibilities of development to a third gender, muftales. This goes on, as a whole rather more than we see. It's rare, but when a demon decides to renounce their life, an egg with their reincarnation appears This egg will also have attributes from another demon they've been in contact with.
Within two years' time, the new demon will require the originator's Heartcore, effectively relieving them of duty. But nowadays they've biologically modified and twisted themselves so much that they might not even have any sort of natural reproduction cycle. You know more than eight women. There is a percent chance a loved one will experience breast cancer.
You can treat breast cancer. You can prevent breast cancer. There are natural and integrative ways to protect yourself — starting right now, and beginning with your immune system. Get regular daily exercise Studies have shown people who exercise for a total of four hours each week have a significantly lower risk of developing breast cancer. Exercise also helps with weight management, which is widely known to have a positive impact on countless aspects of your health.
Limit your alcohol intake Consuming more than four servings of alcohol each week raises the risk of breast cancer. For those who want to be on the safe side, just say no to alcohol. Or get those antioxidants without the alcohol by consuming some red grapes or a glass of grape juice instead. Spend at least 20 minutes each day in the sun This helps increase your levels of Vitamin D. Research shows that postmenopausal women with the highest levels of Vitamin D had a lower risk of developing breast cancer when compared to those with the lowest levels.
A simple blood test can tell you if you need more Vitamin D3. If that turns out to be the case, your doctor can suggest appropriate dosage.
Take a daily dose of iodine Supplemental iodine has been shown to eliminate abnormal cells that are destined to become cancerous, as well as early cancer cells. Leigh Erin Connealy often recommends i-Throid, which should be available in health food stores. Just follow the dosage instructions on the supplements. Eat at least two cups of broccoli each week Broccoli contains a substance known as indol-3 carbinol I3C , which supports healthy estrogen balance throughout your body and protects breast cells.
Cauliflower and Brussels sprouts also contain significant amounts of I3C. Cancer can be defined as an uncontrolled growth or reproduction of abnormal cells in the body. This is called apoptosis or programmed death of cells. Cancerous cells seem to divide and grow out of control and forget how to die. Breast cancer starts when cells in the breast begin to grow out of control. These cells usually form a tumor, often seen on an X-ray or felt as a lump. Benign tumors are not considered cancerous.
The cells are close to normal in appearance, grow, and do not invade nearby tissues or metastasize. Malignant tumors are cancerous. Left unchecked, malignant cells can spread to other parts of the body. Breast cancer also can begin in the stromal tissues. These include the fatty and fibrous connective tissues of the breast. If you have any of these symptoms, tell your healthcare provider. The problem should be diagnosed and treated. OK, so you have felt a lump in your breast.
But, it is important that if you feel a lump to speak with a medical professional. Discuss any changes in your breasts with a doctor. Because up to 30 percent of all breast cancer diagnoses are for premalignant conditions. These abnormal cells were undetectable until a few years ago. The problem is that many doctors order a biopsy, as well as treatment and removal, just to be safe. What are the chances of DCIS becoming cancer at its worst?
Cancerous lumps feel firm or solid and often are painless. In a small percentage of women, a painful breast lump turns out to be cancer. According to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, there are two other types of lumps to be aware of [ 2 ]:. Hormones seem to play a role in many cases of breast cancer, but just how this happens is not fully understood.
Normal breast cells become cancerous because of changes mutations in DNA. Some DNA mutations are inherited. This means the mutations are in every cell in your body and can dramatically increase the risk of developing certain cancers. Just being a woman is the biggest risk factor for developing breast cancer. Other risk factors include:. The complexity of dealing with breast cancer can be directly caused by dental infections.
These infections, in turn, lead to very dangerous toxins which are the waste products of the microbes which cause the infections. In addition, the infections in the dental area can spread to the liver, which is a large incubator for microbes. Thus, the breasts are getting infectious agents both from the mouth and the liver.
Many breast cancer patients who die do so because of the infections which work their way down from the mouth to the liver and breast s. Cancer Tutor founder Webster Kehr saw a thermograph that showed a massive red blob in the mouth a dental infection and a massive red blob in the right breast or liver which is also on the right side of the body.
This demonstrated how the infection spread from the mouth to the breast and liver. This red arc was the infection spreading from the mouth via the lymph system. In other words, the infection spread via the lymph system to the right breast. Because cancer is caused by a nasty microbe, it is possible in many cases that the microbe actually comes from the mouth. In a study of breast cancer patients in Switzerland by Dr.
Thomas Rau, had had root canals on the same meridian as the breast cancer. The other three also had dental problems on the same meridian, but they were not caused by root canals; they were infections in the jawbone caused by some other dental procedure. Heart disease, in particular, could be transferred percent of the time. His research has since been suppressed by the various dental associations in the United States. Root canals create a safe-haven for cancer-causing bacteria. These cancer-causing microbes do not originate in the root canals.
Rather, the microbe originates in the body i. Actually, many types of microbes are involved in different aspects of cancer. The statistics indicate the constant re-infection prevents the body from successfully fighting the breast cancer. Apparently, when a woman or a man in some cases gets breast cancer, the body is generally able to fight it off, unless the person also had a root canal on the same meridian. The root canal s apparently allow cancer to win the battle. Essentially what likely happens is this: A woman will have the cancer microbe spreading harmlessly in the bloodstream.
Because of a root canal, or other dental procedure, some of the microbes get inside of the jawbone or empty tooth and have a safe haven. Once these microbes get inside of normal cells, the cells will become cancerous. As these cells divide, both daughter cells will have these bacteria and both cells will be cancerous.
These toxins alone could kill some patients. This is one reason why the High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier part of the Cellect-Budwig Protocol also deals with microbes in the body and bloodstream and perhaps inside the root canal teeth.
Four Women Against Cancer , by Dr. The point is that it is virtually impossible to totally get rid of breast cancer in many cases without removing all root canals, infections in the jawbones, etc. While soaking your root canal teeth twice a day in 3 percent food grade hydrogen peroxide can kill microbes inside the root canal teeth, most root canal teeth also have a crown which does not allow liquids inside the tooth except at the bottom of the crowns. So be careful about relying on the hydrogen peroxide solution if your root canal teeth have crowns.
Soaking your root canal teeth: And while the electrical signal of the High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier easily penetrates root canal teeth, the microbes must be in enough liquid in order for the signal to vibrate and kill the microbes.
Inside of cancer cells, or in the bloodstream, this is easy, but inside of a dry root canal tooth, it may not be totally successful.
This is why highly specialized dentists may be needed. The best solution is to have a highly qualified dentist safely remove the infections from your mouth. While these dentists are usually biological dentists or holistic dentists, most biological dentists and holistic dentists are not qualified to do this procedure.
The dentists who can do this procedure are specially trained. However, the cost of the dental work can be very high. When they do this procedure they also remove mercury, infected tooth extractions, root canals usually replaced with bridges , etc. All of these are very important things that need to be done.
To determine if you need this procedure, a simple thermograph — taken from the nose to waist — likely will reveal the need for the procedure. If you see red blobs in the mouth and the breast especially if you see a faint red line between them , it is almost a certainty that you need the dental procedure.
For those who cannot afford the entire procedure, they may wish to go to a biological dentist and have their mercury removed. However, there are urgent warnings about having your mercury removed. One in eight women in the U. Age, genetic predisposition, and environmental changes often are implicated — and according to a growing body of research, bacteria may be one of those environmental factors.
Researchers from Western University in Ontario, Canada, discovered in that a variety of bacteria were detected in breast tissue regardless of the location samples — tissue from close to the nipple to as far back as the chest wall. The scientists discovered that in the women with breast cancer, there were significantly higher levels of Enterobacteriaceae, Staphylococcus, and Bacillus bacteria. The participants without breast cancer, on the other hand, had higher incidences of Lactococcus and Streptococcus bacteria, which are thought to have strong anticarcinogenic properties.
According to bioenergetic chiropractor and breast cancer survivor Dr. Véronique Desaulniers , the advances in early detection of cancer are exciting. The Mammogram Myth by Rolf Hefti. Is thermography the future for breast cancer? Corrine Ellsworth Beaumont started Worldwide Breast Cancer as a charity that uses the power of design to create images that educate, empower and speak in a way that goes beyond words.
When Beaumont began delving into her research, she discovered the barriers that exist when communicating with the public about breast cancer.
Beaumont found that a fear of talking about breasts, the censorship of breast images, and adult illiteracy are obstacles in the dissemination of information about the visual signs of breast cancer. The KnowYourLemons campaign is able to overcome those issues on a global scale.
For the first time ever, we can show what symptoms look like without censorship. Most breast lumps 90 percent are not cancerous, but it is always best to have them checked by your doctor. You should see your doctor if you notice any of the following:. Cancer Tutor recommends a blood test to determine how much cancer a patient has. This blood test can be taken every two or three months to determine if the cancer treatment you are using is effective. If the amount of cancer is going down on consecutive blood tests, then the treatment is working this does not mean there might not be stronger treatments, however: Breast cancer can be either invasive or noninvasive.
Cancer that spreads to other areas is called invasive breast cancer, while noninvasive breast cancer stays within the milk ducts or lobules in the breast. Most breast cancers originate in the milk ducts or lobes and are called ductal carcinoma or lobular carcinoma, respectively.
The majority of breast cancers are made up of ductal carcinomas. These cancers start in the cells that line the milk ducts. LCIS is limited to the lobules. LCIS is technically not considered breast cancer. However, LCIS is considered a risk factor for developing invasive breast cancer in both breasts. Breast cancer can express itself in many different ways, even within the same type of breast cancer. By performing tumor sample testing we can determine what type of breast cancer it is, and what subtypes of breast cancer are relevant to the case.
Using the test results, your doctor will be able to determine the best treatment plan for your situation. Tumor sample tests will provide results for these three main breast cancer subtypes: Hormone receptor-positive cancers can occur at any age, but may be more frequent in women who have gone through menopause. About 20 to 25 percent of breast cancers depend on the gene called human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 HER2 to grow.
The HER2 gene makes a protein that is found in the cancer cell and is important for tumor cell growth. This type of cancer may grow more quickly. HER2-positive cancers can be either hormone receptor-positive or hormone receptor-negative. Triple-negative breast cancer seems to be more common among younger women, particularly younger black women. Experts recommend that all people with triple-negative breast cancer be tested for BRCA gene mutations. Once the diagnostic tests are complete, your doctor will base your treatment plan on a combination of the information on the type of breast cancer, the subtype, and also the stage of your cancer.
Breast cancer staging is as follows: In stage 0, there is no evidence of cancer cells breaking out of the part of the breast in which they started, or of getting through to or invading neighboring normal tissue.
In stage II, the tumor measures between two to five centimeters, or the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes under the arm on the same side as the breast cancer. In stage III, the tumor in the breast is more than two inches in diameter across and the cancer is extensive in the underarm lymph nodes, or has spread to other lymph nodes or tissues near the breast.
In stage IV, the cancer has spread beyond the breast, underarm and internal mammary lymph nodes to other parts of the body near to or distant from the breast. Some breast cancer is caused by a genetic abnormality: However, only percent of cancers are due to an abnormality inherited from your mother or father. There will be about , new cases of invasive breast cancer and 60, cases of non-invasive breast cancer this year in American women.
In , there were an estimated 3,, women living with female breast cancer in the United States. Death rates have been falling on average 1. The most potent medicine to me is your belief system. Véronique Desaulniers contends most women are overwhelmed, confused, and frustrated when they get a breast cancer diagnosis. Regardless of whether a woman with breast cancer chooses conventional treatment, evidence-based natural medicine, or a combination of both, there are things you can do to help, according to Dr.
And this is where her 7 Essentials play a large role in healing. Hippocrates, the Greek physician who lived more than years ago, made the astounding connection with food and how it could heal the body.
Food is the foundation of our health. Food fuels our cells and organs. If we ingest toxic, dead food, then guess what happens to our bodies? Yes, they become toxic, diseased and die prematurely. Detoxification of the liver and colon play a major role in improving your health.
If the foundation of the body is energy and light, then it makes sense that we keep that energy balanced and free of interference.
