Expert Warns Against The Popular Belief That Sucking A Woman’s Breasts Could Prevent Breast Cancer | See What Does

What do you believe about the risk of getting breast cancer? Are your beliefs based on truth? According to a medical expert, contrary to popular belief, breast cancer cannot be prevented by merely sucking a woman’s breasts.

Breastfeeding, according to a study reduces a woman’s risk of dying from breast cancer by more than a quarter.

Mrs. Abigael Shona told the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Ilorin that breastfeeding a baby, whereby the baby draws out milk, can prevent breast cancer in women. She said that breast sucking by men could only help detect cancer, but it can’t prevent it the way breastfeeding would.

She added that women who breastfeed lower their risk of pre- and post-menopausal breast cancer. According to the medical expert:

”Most women who breastfeed experience hormonal changes during lactation that delay their menstrual periods. This reduces a woman’s lifetime exposure to hormones such as estrogen, which can promote breast cancer cell growth.

What sucking the breast by a man can only do is to detect breast cancer by feeling the lumps early enough, so the woman can seek medical help.”

The practitioner, however, encouraged women to allow their spouses to massage and fondle their breasts to help them detect breast cancer early. Shona further said:

”We are encouraging women not to deprive their husbands the pleasure of breast sucking and fondling, as this is also beneficial to them. This is because, inasmuch as we advocate self-examination by women for early detection, most women don’t do it.

So, if they allow their husbands help them with it, it will help a lot because early detection is the major panacea to addressing the scourge. If breast cancer is detected early before it gets to an advanced stage, the patient can survive it.”
