When it comes to personal care, the best products for breast cancer patients to use are often minimally processed and without dyes, additives, and artificial fragrances. Many of these options are labeled as “all-natural” or “organic”. Consider our products below for safe, holistic additions to wellness care during the time of a breast cancer diagnosis.
What Are Common Symptoms of Breast Cancer?
Simply put, breast cancer is abnormal cell growth in the breast area. If you’re not familiar with the symptoms of this disease, though, you may not be able to distinguish early signs of breast cancer from other common ailments. Symptoms to watch for include:
- A lump in the breast or thickening of the tissue that feels abnormal to you
- Unusual changes in the size, shape, or color of your breasts
- Abnormal flaking or peeling of the skin in the nipple or breast area
It’s important to schedule a medical check-up if you notice anything “off” about your breasts’ appearance or concerning the way you feel overall — especially if a close female relative has ever been diagnosed with breast cancer. According to Cancer.org, up to 10% of breast cancer cases have genetic links.
A diagnosis can mean significant lifecare changes, including in your personal care routines. Speak to your medical team about the best products for breast cancer patients to use or any supplements you may consider taking alongside your treatment.
Why Look for the Best Products for Breast Cancer Patients To Use?
Many commonly used ingredients in mainstream personal care products contain chemicals that may lead to the development of different types of cancers. Though no definite links have been proven, it’s best to avoid as many parabens and phthalates as possible until researchers know more. These chemicals act as mild hormone disruptors and can change the way your body reacts and responds with extended use.
