Breast cancer: Possible Link Between Asymmetrical Breasts and Cancer

A novel research has suggested that Women with disproportionate or uneven breasts have a greater likelihood of developing cancer. Fortunately// , the mammography is designed to record any alterations or changes in the breast, the study has revealed.

A University of Liverpool team conducted a study where mammograms of 252 women who developed cancer were compared with a similar number of mammograms from healthy women. It was observed that, though breast cancer originated out of a number of causes, yet the chances of getting cancer rose by 50% for every 100 ml increase in breast unevenness. Having said that, it is considered normal for many women who portray moderate changes in shape of breasts.

According to Maria Lead beater, of the Charity Breast Cancer Care, unevenness of breasts could be caused due to certain disturbances n the secretion of hormones. This is also an indicator that the body is not developing in a manner it should, suggesting instability in bodily development.

The researchers have said, 'Asymmetrical breasts could prove to be reliable indicators of future breast disease in women and this factor should be considered in a woman's risk profile.'

Lead researcher Dr Diane Scutt said 'Breast asymmetry should not be considered in isolation, it is important to consider a woman's entire risk profile before assessing her breast cancer risk.'

Maria Lead beater has said that this study is insufficient to prove anything conclusive, in order to seal the link. She added, 'There are many causes of breast asymmetry, and for many women having slightly different shaped breasts is perfectly normal. However, if your breasts are normally close in size and you notice them becoming asymmetrical it is important to get this change checked out with your doctor. This is all part of being breast aware, meaning knowing how your breasts look and feel so you can report any changes promptly.'
