can you really get breast cancer from sleeping with your bra on?
i've heard this from a couple people, but i'm still not quite convinced.

This is undetermined still. Think logically though, a bra adds pressure to your tissues, including lymph tissue. This reduces the movement of toxic material away from your breast. Probably not the best idea. Another pointer...don't use deoderants with Aluminum.

Thats what I heard. I think you should ask your doctor next time you go. I think I'm going to do that.

No way, cancer is when cells divide uncontrollably and your cells don't know whether you have a bra on or not so it has no effect.

Ive heard that the pressing of the wire against the breast can actually help in stimulating cell growth [like cancer].

There was a study done, and you can google this stuff!

* Women who wore their bras 24 hours per day had a 3 out of 4 chance of developing breast cancer
* Women who wore bras more than 12 hour per day but not to bed had a 1 out of 7 risk.
* Women who wore their bras less than 12 hours per day had a 1 out of 152 risk.
* Women who wore bras rarely or never had a 1 out of 168 chance of getting breast cancer. The overall difference between 24 hour wearing and not at all was a 125-fold difference.

Not that I know of!!! But why would you sleep with your bra on anyway?

honey bee
I read in a health magazine that no it does not.

The theory was to sleep with a bra on to hasten your breasts from sagging.

The only problem bra is one with underwire or a bra that is not correctly fitted. If the bra digs into your breast, it can cause a type of lumpiness.

If the bra fits then there is no problem with wearing one to sleep.

But, I like to let the girls get some rest at night.

Yet another old wives tail. You'll not get breast cancer from sleeping with a bra on at all.

Mr. E
Cancer is caused by cell mutations from radiation and poisonous chemicals absorbed by the body...
Bras have absolutely NOTHING to do with it.
Now stop talking, your a hypochondriac.

Actually it isn't good for your breasts, it can cause cysts and breast disease. The reason is because bras with the underwire block flow from the lymph nodes. Bras without underwire will be better to wear, but why would you sleep with them on? just wear a supportive top.

No you can't. While there is a genetic predisposition towards breast cancer, not all the causes are clearly understood. However wearing your bra while sleeping is not one of them.

" Risk Factors

No one knows the exact causes of breast cancer. Doctors often cannot explain why one woman develops breast cancer and another does not. They do know that bumping, bruising, or touching the breast does not cause cancer. And breast cancer is not contagious. You cannot "catch" it from another person.

Research has shown that women with certain risk factors are more likely than others to develop breast cancer. A risk factor is something that may increase the chance of developing a disease.

Studies have found the following risk factors for breast cancer:

* Age: The chance of getting breast cancer goes up as a woman gets older. Most cases of breast cancer occur in women over 60. This disease is not common before menopause.
* Personal history of breast cancer: A woman who had breast cancer in one breast has an increased risk of getting cancer in her other breast.
* Family history: A woman's risk of breast cancer is higher if her mother, sister, or daughter had breast cancer. The risk is higher if her family member got breast cancer before age 40. Having other relatives with breast cancer (in either her mother's or father's family) may also increase a woman's risk.
* Certain breast changes: Some women have cells in the breast that look abnormal under a microscope. Having certain types of abnormal cells (atypical hyperplasia and lobular carcinoma in situ [LCIS]) increases the risk of breast cancer.
* Gene changes: Changes in certain genes increase the risk of breast cancer. These genes include BRCA1, BRCA2, and others. Tests can sometimes show the presence of specific gene changes in families with many women who have had breast cancer. Health care providers may suggest ways to try to reduce the risk of breast cancer, or to improve the detection of this disease in women who have these changes in their genes. NCI offers publications on gene testing.
* Reproductive and menstrual history:
o The older a woman is when she has her first child, the greater her chance of breast cancer.
o Women who had their first menstrual period before age 12 are at an increased risk of breast cancer.
o Women who went through menopause after age 55 are at an increased risk of breast cancer.
o Women who never had children are at an increased risk of breast cancer.
o Women who take menopausal hormone therapy with estrogen plus progestin after menopause also appear to have an increased risk of breast cancer.
o Large, well-designed studies have shown no link between abortion or miscarriage and breast cancer.
* Race: Breast cancer is diagnosed more often in white women than Latina, Asian, or African American women.
* Radiation therapy to the chest: Women who had radiation therapy to the chest (including breasts) before age 30 are at an increased risk of breast cancer. This includes women treated with radiation for Hodgkin's lymphoma. Studies show that the younger a woman was when she received radiation treatment, the higher her risk of breast cancer later in life.
* Breast density: Breast tissue may be dense or fatty. Older women whose mammograms (breast x-rays) show more dense tissue are at increased risk of breast cancer.
* Taking DES (diethylstilbestrol): DES was given to some pregnant women in the United States between about 1940 and 1971. (It is no longer given to pregnant women.) Women who took DES during pregnancy may have a slightly increased risk of breast cancer. The possible effects on their daughters are under study.
* Being overweight or obese after menopause: The chance of getting breast cancer after menopause is higher in women who are overweight or obese.
* Lack of physical activity: Women who are physically inactive throughout life may have an increased risk of breast cancer. Being active may help reduce risk by preventing weight gain and obesity.
* Drinking alcohol: Studies suggest that the more alcohol a woman drinks, the greater her risk of breast cancer.

Other possible risk factors are under study. Researchers are studying the effect of diet, physical activity, and genetics on breast cancer risk. They are also studying whether certain substances in the environment can increase the risk of breast cancer.

Many risk factors can be avoided. Others, such as family history, cannot be avoided. Women can help protect themselves by staying away from known risk factors whenever possible.

But it is also important to keep in mind that most women who have known risk factors do not get breast cancer. Also, most women with breast cancer do not have a family history of the disease. In fact, except for growing older, most women with breast cancer have no clear risk

Not at all, but you can get a bad back, because bras weaken the muscles in the spine. I am blessed with small breasts and am happy that I can live without a bra.

Cancer is an internal disease, not caused by clothes.

I have heard that myth before too but thank goodness it's not true according to the American Cancer Society. http://www.cancer.org/docroot/MED/content/MED_6_1x_Underwire_Bras.asp?sitearea=MED

i thought ur suppose to sleep with your bra on so they don't become all saggy

Of course not. But the question is; why would you want to sleep with a bra on anyway?

It's good to let the girls get some air... : )

No! It's just an old wives' tale.

Dr who
No,but a little freedom can be good after wearing one all day.

OMG! if thats true i NEED to go to a doctor! AHHH! :O

No... that's BS.

If bras caused cancer, nobody would have worn them. You're fine.

No, you cannot get breast cancer from sleeping with a bra on.
