Breast Cancer Early Detection: An Academic-Community Partnership in the Philippines.

08:00 EDT 1st October 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Breast Cancer Early Detection: An Academic-Community Partnership in the Philippines."

A high proportion of patients with breast cancer in the Philippines present at an advanced stage and have a rapid, unfavorable outcome. Providing breast cancer education and early detection to this population is important to help reduce this health disparity. This article describes the impact of a train-the-trainer program, with mission groups traveling to the Philippines to promote female residents' breast cancer awareness, knowledge, and intent for future screening.

Methods to identify and characterize cancer in the early stages of disease and predict tumor behavior.

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

A homolog of p53 TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN that encodes full-length trans-activating and N-terminally-truncated (DeltaN) isoforms. Detection of splice variants and isoforms in the nervous system (human TELENCEPHALON, CHOROID PLEXUS; CEREBROSPINAL FLUID), embryonic tissue, human BREAST CANCER; OVARIAN CANCER, suggest roles in cellular differentiation.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
