In this regard, Dr. Sajjan Rajpurohit, Head of the Department of Medical Oncology, Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research Center, Niti Bagh, says that abnormal and uncontrolled growth of cells in any part of the body is called cancer. By continuing to grow, the pieces of this tissue reach other parts of the body through the blood and start expanding to the new place. This is called metastasis.
However, there are two reasons behind the increase of cells in breast cancer i.e. poor lifestyle and genetics. But you will be surprised to know that these 5 mistakes of daily life of women can also make them a victim of breast cancer. Let’s know about these mistakes.
obesity is responsible
The increasing obesity of women causes breast cancer. Especially after menopause, the risk of breast cancer in women increases very much. This happens because more hormones in the body are released from fat tissues. When too much fat starts accumulating on the body, then the level of estrogen starts decreasing, this also increases the risk of cancer.
abstain from breastfeeding
Some women avoid breastfeeding. The risk of breast cancer also increases in such women. This is because due to breastfeeding, the hormones remain in balance, whereas those who do not breastfeed, their hormones get disturbed and disturbances in hormones are not good for the health of women.
Women who consume alcohol have a higher risk of breast cancer than women who do not drink alcohol. According to a research, women who take two or three pegs of alcohol in a day have a 20 percent higher risk of cancer than others. Yes, alcohol reduces the level of estrogen in the body and it increases the risk of cancer.
birth control pills
If you eat birth control pills daily, then these pills also increase the risk of breast cancer in you. Not only this, but birth control injections and other methods of birth control also increase the risk of breast cancer.
abstaining from exercise
Skinny women avoid exercising. But exercising is very important for everyone. Because by not exercising, your body does not remain healthy and the risk of any disease increases. Especially the habit of not exercising increases the risk of breast cancer. After menopause, it is very important for women to exercise. Therefore, women should definitely walk for 45 minutes daily, leaving laziness.
