The President of Breast Care International, Dr. Beatrice Wiafe -Addai, has advised men to handle a woman’s breast with utmost care because it is a very fragile part of a woman’s body. Dr. Beatrice said this while speaking on the sidelines of the breast cancer awareness month which is celebrated in October every year. In an interview with Ghanaian Starr Fm morning show host, Francis Abban, the medical practitioner refuted claims that sucking of a woman’s breast by men reduces the risk of getting breast cancer, saying those claims are not true.
“It is not true that the more you suck a woman’s breast it prevents the risk of getting breast cancer.
“What is true is that women who have children should breastfeed, and breastfeeding has some positive effect on the woman as far as breast cancer is concerned.
“But not adult men to go and suck the breast thinking it will protect the woman from breast cancer, that is not true, it is very fragile so let’s handle it with care…don’t squeeze it like you have some mango or orange that you are squeezing to get some fluid out.”
Dr. Wiafe-Addai further advised men not to abandon women diagnosed with breast cancer but rather help to fight it.
“If you find something in a woman’s breast, don’t send her to her family home because she has been diagnosed of breast cancer. Give her all the morale even if not financial. So that she knows that someone is with her through the fight.
“The fight against breast cancer is not an easy one so women need all the support from men, society and the nation,” she pointed out.
Meanwhile, according to the Chief Consultant, Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, National Hospital, Abuja, Efena Efetie, firm brassier could help prevent breast sagging after six months of exclusive breastfeeding. Mr. Efetie said this in Abuja on the sideline of the 2017 World Breast Feeding Week. He described as erroneous the perception by most nursing mothers that exclusive breastfeeding could lead to breast sagging, and as a result, they deny the child the much-needed breast milk. The main factor for floppiness of the breast, Mr. Efetie said, is due to lack of support with a firm brassier.
“The use of firm brassiere during breastfeeding and after weaning could help tone back the breast.
“After breastfeeding a child, the breast can never be the same as it was before the conception; the firmness can, however, be maintained with proper care,” he said.
