Can Fear Cause Breast Cancer?
Breast cancer is a common fear among some women.   Some women get very overwhelmed with fear over breast cancer that they avoid any kind of breast cancer screening that could identify it.  Cortisol levels rise with fear and anxiety.  Cortisol is a hormone that affects the hormone balance and an increase cortisol levels can lead to:
  • Increase in blood sugar
  • Increase in inflammation
  • Suppression of the immune system
Knowledge and an action plan for the prevention of breast cancer can decrease the fear and anxiety and lead to a longer, healthier life.  The action plan can include identifying the risks of breast cancer and lowering those risks. 
Dr. Alex Mostovoy recommends women be proactive and get your hormone levels checked, eat better, exercise more, conduct breast self-exams, use breast Thermography to assess your risk, and don’t let fear stand in the way.

Dr. Christiane Northrup has a similar view on the fear of breast exams.  Breast exams have historically not had a positive view – women conducting exams, “sweeping” the breasts in search of something sinister and if they skip the self exams, they may end up feeling guilty about it.
Instead of the fear-based self-exam, Dr. Northrup suggests conducting breast exams in a loving and conscious manner, and to surround them in a positive energy field.  She adds that “examining your breasts in a spirit of fear simply increases the fear and is the opposite of what you need to create healthy breast tissue.”
