Researchers Find Link between Breast Cancer and Bacterial Imbalance

Letter to the Editor: Help women with breast cancer by emailing your MP today

They discovered that healthy breast tissue contains more of the bacterial species Methylobacterium. Anyone with the lump/s in the armpit, skin, wound or bleeding from nipples is strongly advised to visit the nearby doctors for the detection of their cancers in an early stage. Most research has been done on the "gut" microbiome, or bacteria in the digestive tract.

Apart from breast cancer, researchers are also focusing on using their current study to reduce the chances of developing lung, prostate, colorectal, ovarian, and uterine cancers among people. That's because it takes multiple separate images, up to 80 per breast. The commercialization of this new gene test though, will help patients narrow down the level of risk by adopting preventive surgery.

More than 70, 000 women succumb to breast cancer every year - a woman dies of breast cancer every 10 minutes in India. As per the data provided by the hospital, 120 patients underwent surgery for breast cancer in the hospital in the fiscal 2016/17.

The team from the Cleveland Clinic in OH also looked at patients' oral rinse and urine to assess bacterial composition of these sites.

As reported by The Washington Post, breast cancer death rates increased by 0.4 percent per year from 1975 to 1989, according to the study. With a double mastectomy and reconstruction, women were also three times more likely to stop working altogether.

Women between 45 and 69 are eligible for two government-funded mammograms per year, and those with first or second-degree relatives who have a history of breast cancer are eligible from age 40, it added. It is critical that progress is made across these areas, particularly as the number of those living with and beyond breast cancer is expected to rise.

Breast cancer death rates declined nearly 40 percent between 1989 and 2015, averting 322,600 deaths, according to the American Cancer Society.
