Breast cyst can be defined by mammography before it becomes avaliable.Even before stage of the cancer lesions that can turn into breast cancer can be defined. Therefore, should be take control although not have any complaints.
‘Having mammography often causes to have breastcancer.’ That is wrong! Mammography does not cause cancer or metastasis. On the contrary, it provides access to important information during the treatment process that prevents the spread of the disease. The radiation dose given in the mammography process is very low. If a woman has mammography every year during 50 years, the breast tissue will only receive just one having lung x-ray.Periodically having mammography isn’wrong . It doesn't cause breast cancer. However, unnecessary mammography should be avoided. Besides, it doesn’t have any disadvantageous to take mammography at a young age.

‘Surgical removal of a cancerous mass causes cancer to spread to the body.’ That is wrong! If cancer is to spread to the body, it spreads through the cells separated from the cancerous mass. Taking this mass prevents spreading. cells spread to the body prior to surgery may form new masses after a while even if the mass is taken. This isn’related to with surgery
