Mastopathy (as defined by the WHO, 1984) is a fibrocystic disease characterized by a violation of the balance of epithelial and connective tissue components and a wide range of proliferative and regressive changes in breast tissue. Most often, mastopathy occurs in women aged 30-50 years. However, symptoms of mastopathy can appear already in adolescence.
The main risk factors contributing to the appearance of mastopathy:
- Early onset of menstruation;
- Later onset of menopause;
- Lack of a normal full-term pregnancy, or a late first pregnancy in life;
- Frequent artificial abortions;
- Too short or, on the contrary, too long period of breastfeeding;
- Prolonged stress;
- The woman’s age is over 40;
- Metabolic disorders;
- Liver diseases, in particular, chronic hepatitis;
- Dysfunction of the thyroid gland;
- Gynecological diseases (ovarian, endometrial, etc.);
- Taking some medications;
As we can see, the risk of mastopathy in women is quite high. According to the World Health Organization, every fourth woman in the world under the age of 30 suffers from mastopathy, and with increasing age, the number of cases increases to 60-70%.
The particular danger is that this disease leads to the development of more serious health problems – breast cancer.
The preventive measures recommended by specialists are simple: it is necessary to follow the rules of a healthy diet (it is especially important to include in your diet foods rich in antioxidants and vegetables from the cruciferous family – cabbage, broccoli, etc., the benefit of which in the prevention of mastopathy has been proven by several studies), regularly engage in sports and normalize one’s sex life (late pregnancy, as well as abortions, is a factor in the development of mastopathy), use preventive measures based on dietary supplements, which, along with the preventive effect, also have general strengthening properties.
Also, in the prevention of mastopathy, regular examination of the mammary glands is especially important – both independently and by a specialist. Doctors recommend self-examination at least once a month, and the frequency of «professional examination» should be at least once every six months.
Do not forget – your health is in your hands.
