    I have a dear one who is diagnosed with DCIS and will need surgery and radiation. Anyone have any good survivor stories.

    My friends sister has breast cancer and their mother died of cancer.

    my mom had breast cancer at 46. She's 72 now.

    DCIS is the most common form of non-invasive cancer. That means it doesn't metastasize quickly.

    I wish your friend a long life to come.

    Hello Friends..........

    1. You should be more active. A recent Norwegian study discovered that women who exercised on a regular basis cut their breast cancer risk by 72 percent.

    2. You should eat more unrefined seed foods. They all contain phytoestrogens. If you eat foods rich in these elements, you are 4 times less likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer. You should consume whole grains, beans, nuts, edible seeds, fruits and vegetables with their seeds.

    3. You should eat less vegetable oil and increase the consumption of animal fat and dairy products. Consume yogurt, cheese, milk, butter, and olive oil on a daily basis, and eat meat from time to time.

    4. You should eat less tofu and soy beverage. The isoflavone found in soy causes breast cancer cells to grow rapidly. On the other hand, eat more miso and tamari. Studies have found that they are very effective in preventing cancer.

    5. You should eat foods rich in antioxidants. At the same time, avoid supplements of vitamins E and C. It was discovered that supplements increase breast cancer risk. Eat five to seven servings of dark green and bright red/orange foods every day.

    Thanks

    Men get breast cancer too...

    Kenyan Men With Breast Cancer Fight Disease, Stigma
    October 01, 2015 — For a long time, Kenyan men fighting breast cancer have hidden their condition, embarrassed they are fighting a disease associated with women. Now, some doctors and patients are coming out and talking about the disease, in hopes of reducing the stigma.
