Hi Erik,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

There are many rumors circulating regarding the link between the use of a bra (especially a bra with a wire) in increasing the risk of developing breast cancer. This increased risk is thought to occur due to blocked lymphatic flow (lymph nodes). In fact, this has not been scientifically proven to be true. In fact, in a study conducted in 2014 with 1500 female subjects, it was proven that there was no association between bra use and breast cancer risk.


Breast cancer itself is a malignant tumor that attacks the breast parenchyma cells. This cancer consists of various types, including angiosarcoma, ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), invasive lobular carcinoma, and so on. Usually, this cancer causes a mass or thickening in the breast and changes in the overall shape of the breast. Cancer cells in the breast can spread (metastasize) to various other parts of the body.


According to many experts, the risk of developing breast cancer is strongly influenced by the following factors:

Genetic (hereditary), mainly related to the BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 genes
Female
Old age
Have a history of previous breast abnormalities, including breast cancer on the other side of the breast
Exposure to radiation
Obesity
Experiencing menarche at a young age and menopause at an old age
Having children for the first time in old age
Never been pregnant
Undergo post menopausal hormone therapy
Consuming alcohol

By knowing the risk factors that can cause breast cancer above, the following preventive steps can be taken so that the risk of breast cancer can be reduced:

Be diligent in doing breast self-examination (be aware)
Avoid alcohol consumption
Exercise regularly
Maintain ideal body weight
Have a healthy diet, consume more nuts, fruit, vegetables, seeds, fish, extra virgin olive oil

Do not smoke

That's all for our explanation. For more details, please consult directly with your doctor.


I hope this helps.
