Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
First of all, you need to know, there are many types of breast tumors, and each of them has its own potential for malignancy, it cannot be generalized. Cancer refers to a tumor that is malignant. And, not all breast tumors have the potential to become malignant. Therefore, it is necessary to clarify first, what breast tumors have you experienced before?
Breast tumors occur when breast parenchyma cells grow excessively, abnormally, and uncontrollably. This condition will usually appear to form a lump in the breast that can vary in location, shape, and size. Some types of breast tumors that are often encountered are fibroadenomas, cysts, carcinomas, Paget's disease, angiosarcomas, and so on. The treatment of these tumors can vary, some are sufficient with observation, surgery, to chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Unfortunately, you did not explain in detail the type of breast tumor that you experienced before. Therefore, it is difficult for us to identify the potential for this tumor to develop into malignancy. We suggest that you consult this directly with the doctor or surgeon who operated on you before.
Garlic is known to have various good effects on health, including as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. With these properties, consumption of garlic should be able to help relieve inflammation that occurs in the body, including after surgery. In addition, the antioxidant properties in garlic are also good for minimizing the growth of cancer cells. However, how effective this is for breast tumors that you have previously experienced cannot be concluded given it is not clear what type of breast tumor you mean.
Consuming garlic can be done in various ways. The easiest is to process it with other food ingredients. As for how much benefit can be produced by soaking garlic in warm water and its potential in preventing malignancy has not yet been proven through adequate clinical research. Therefore, we are not authorized to describe it in detail. However, you should still not consume garlic excessively. Because, in some sensitive people, consuming excessive amounts of garlic can trigger an increase in stomach acid, make bad breath and body odor unpleasant, trigger nausea, and also various other uncomfortable sensations. So, just consume it properly ..
I hope this helps.
