누드사진으로 보는 유방암 생존자들의 아름다움과 강인함

대부분의 사람들은 고대 신화에 나올 것 같은 풍만한 여신의 모습을 상상할 것이다(혹은 그것보다 더 노골적인 뭔가를 연상할테고). 미국 뉴욕의 사진작가 차리스 이시스는 여성 누드에 대한 고정관념을 완전히 뒤집어 놓았다. 그녀는 풍만한 여성의 나체가 아닌 유방암으로 유방절제수술을 받은 여성의 강인함과 아름다움을 사진으로 표현했다. 사진 속 유방 절제수술을 받은 여성은 마치 ‘밀로의 비너스’와 ‘사모트라케의 니케’의 모습을 연상케 한다. '그레이스'라는 이름이 붙은 이 사진 프로젝트 진행을 위해 작가는 먼저 유방절제 수술을 받은 참여자를 찾았다. Le lait , le 2 ème criminel qui se cache dans votre réfrigérateur.

Abstract This paper identifies the long run average British National Health Service screening costs in one particular screening clinic for various different regimes: mammography, thermography and clinical examination: thermography and clinical examination: and mammography and clinical examination; each of these having one or two clinical examinations and the option of single or double reporting of mammograms and thermograms.

It then compares the cost-effectiveness of these different regimes where ‘costs’ are defined widely to include not only screening costs but also biopsy costs, anxiety costs for women biopsied, costs of false negatives, etc. By defining costs in this way, it was possible (if somewhat tentatively because of the small numbers involved) to identify mammography with single reporting together with a single clinical examination as ‘the best buy’.

Une nouvelle étude relance la polémique sur le dépistage du cancer du sein. «Oui, les dépistages de cancer du sein sont efficaces» La semaine dernière, une étude canadienne est (re)venue flanquer le doute. A quoi sert le dépistage du cancer du sein ? En lisant l’étude un peu vite, on retient que faire une mammographie tous les ans ne réduit pas la mortalité due au cancer du sein. Pire, le dépistage généralisé entraînerait des surdiagnostics et donc des traitements qui n’auraient pas été nécessaires. Plus heureuse qu'avant mon cancer ! Un pas vers l’écriture ?... Pourquoi tant de malades écrivent… Ils sont de plus en plus nombreux ceux qui choisissent de témoigner sur leur quotidien avec la maladie : journaux intimes, chroniques d’hospitalisation deviennent des livres, ou alimentent des blogs sur la Toile.

Entre le besoin de se confesser, le désir de témoigner et parfois la complaisance narcissique, que peut donc apporter l’écriture face à l’épreuve ? Si l’on « Googlelise » quelques grandes pathologies au long cours (cancer, diabète, dépression…) et choisissons de croiser ces noms de maladies avec l’item « témoignages », plus d’une centaine de liens apparaissent.

Certains malades tiennent même leur journal intime en direct sur Facebook ou Twitter, se cooptant avec de jeunes médecins, très présents eux aussi . Quant aux publications de l’année 2010, elles aussi comportent pléthore de récits de maladie. Our view: An advancement for breast cancer prevention. In a month dedicated to breast cancer prevention, it's striking that a survey of 1,460 U.S. females exposed just how many adult women - 72 percent over the age of 18 - have never heard of the BRCA gene tests.

USAN DENTZER: Like many sisters, Barbara Guttman and Lisa Greaves have a lot in common. But much to their shock and grief, they discovered several years ago that they also shared a deadly trait, an inherited predisposition to breast cancer.

BARBARA GUTTMAN: My grandmother died of breast cancer a long time ago, in 1941, and her sister had had cancer. And in the meantime two of my aunts got ovarian cancer. These are my father’s – they’re actually his half-sisters. And then Lisa got breast cancer, and that just changed everything. SUSAN DENTZER: Lisa is now 35 years old. LISA GREAVES: I had just turned 31, and that was treated locally with lumpectomy, and really in the time that I was evaluating whether that was all the treatment I would need, I was diagnosed with a much more major malignant tumor in the other breast, and following that diagnosis, I had bilateral mastectomies in January of 1995.

High risk breast cancer. Friday, August 01, 2014 - One out of every nine women in Pakistan is at a risk of breast cancer. It is estimated that Pakistan has the highest rate of breast cancer among all the Asian countries. Every year we witness many deaths due to it. Unfortunately the cause of this cancer is still unpredictable; it can be genetic or due to some other problems as well. The problem lies in the awareness of breast cancer. Mostly females are illiterate or unaware about it due to which they never get them checked. Women should act responsibly now and even young girls should motivate their mothers and other women to get themselves checked since it is the type of disease that can be cured and 90% if it is diagnosed at the early stages.
