Increasing obesity can also cause breast cancer, these are the initial symptoms

Breast cancer cases are increasing every year in India. Now even young women are becoming victims of this cancer. Most of the cases of breast cancer are coming in advanced stage only. Why does breast cancer occur and why are young women becoming victims of it? Let us know about this cancer in detail from the doctors.

There was a time when cases of breast cancer occurred in women above 50 years of age, but now the situation has changed. Now the cases of breast cancer are increasing even in the age group of 25 to 35 years. In most of the cases, cases of this cancer are appearing in advanced i.e. last stage. Doctors say that breast cancer is occurring in women due to bad lifestyle, bad eating habits and genetic reasons. But it is a matter of concern that there is still a lack of awareness about this cancer among most of the women. There is no information about its symptoms.

Dr. Mandeep Singh Malhotra, Director of Surgical Oncology at CK Birla Hospital, says that in recent years, a worrying and shocking trend has been seen in the field of oncology. Now cases of breast cancer are increasing rapidly among young women. One of the major factors contributing to the increase in breast cancer in young women is lifestyle changes. In today's time, modern lifestyle, pollution, lack of exercise and bad food habits are the major causes of this cancer.

Increasing obesity also causes

Dr. Malhotra says that obesity is increasing due to bad food and processed food. Unhealthy diets have been linked to obesity, a risk factor for breast cancer. Additionally, exposure to chemicals found in common household products may play a role in the development of hormonal cancers, including some types of breast cancer. These chemicals can cause cancer.

delay in having a child

Nowadays the trend of delaying the birth of a child has increased. Which increases the risk of breast cancer. Due to late planning of children, the duration of breastfeeding also reduces, which increases the risk of breast cancer. Apart from this, the reason for increase in breast cancer in young women is also genetic. Women whose mother has this cancer in their family should start their screening only after the age of 20 years.
