Elizabeth Hurley discusses the symptoms and treatment of ‘various’ types of breast cancer.
ELIZABETH HURLEY is continuing her 25-year battle to raise breast cancer awareness. Since her grandmother died of breast cancer, the Austin Powers actress has been doing everything she can to encourage women to check their breasts.
On Tuesday, October 12th, Elizabeth Hurley appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain (GMB) to discuss how two of her friends were motivated to check their breasts and discovered malignant tumors. She began, “It’s interesting, yet sad.” “Last year, two of my pals saw my Instagram post about self-checking [your breasts]. Two pals, both in their 40s, who had not checked themselves before seeing my Instagram, did so after viewing it.” Elizabeth went on to say: “And two of them discovered lumps and went to the doctor; two of them were diagnosed with breast cancer and have had treatment.” Fortunately, they are “fine,” as her friends discovered the bumps “early.”
“However, if they hadn’t seen the Instagram post I produced on behalf of our campaign, they wouldn’t have self-checked,” Elizabeth explained.
Breast cancer can kill if caught too late, as Elizabeth knows all too well, therefore she urges: “Please ladies, please start checking.”
The 56-year-old believes that society has progressed from the “dark ages,” when no one talked about breast cancer and treatment options were restricted.
People now have more options for therapy because it is recognized that there are “various” forms of breast cancer.
Different forms of breast cancer: According to Cancer Research UK, invasive breast cancer is the most common type of breast cancer, accounting for roughly 70% of occurrences.
“Invasive breast cancer” refers to cancer cells that have spread beyond the duct lining and into the surrounding breast tissue, according to the charity.
A mammography (an X-ray of the breasts), ultrasound, and/or a biopsy may be used to diagnose invasive breast cancer.
Invasive breast cancer may be treated with the following options:
Treatment will be determined not just by the type of breast cancer you have, but also by a number of other factors.
Your overall health, the size of the tumor, and whether the cells contain hormone receptors are all examples.
Following treatment, regular health check-ups will be scheduled to see if the tumor has returned.
For at least five years after treatment, most patients are required to have monthly health check-ups.
