A health expert has explained why men must suck the breasts of their spouses, indicating that it helps in the detection of cancers at its early stages.
This, however, is contrary to the widely held notion that when men suck women’s breasts it can help prevent breast cancer. The medical expert reveals that this belief is untrue and that it only for its detection
According to Dr Abigail Shona, it is only breastfeeding that can help in the prevention of breast cancer because milk is drawn out of the breasts which causes hormonal changes, reducing their exposure to hormones that cause breast cancer.
“Most women who breastfeed experience hormonal changes during lactation that delay their menstrual periods. This reduces a woman’s lifetime exposure to hormones such as estrogen, which can promote breast cancer cell growth”, she explained.
She however added that couples should not deny their partners the pleasure of sucking breasts given that it could help in the detection of lumps in the breasts which are a sign of breast cancer.
“What sucking the breast by a man can only do is to detect breast cancer by feeling the lumps early enough, so the woman can seek medical help,” she clarified.
“We are encouraging women not to deprive their husbands the pleasure of breast sucking and fondling, as this is also beneficial to them. This is because, inasmuch as we advocate self-examination by women for early detection, most women don’t do it. So, if they allow their husbands help them with it, it will help a lot because early detection is the major panacea to addressing the scourge…if breast cancer is detected early before it gets to an advanced stage, the patient can survive it,” she advised.
Breast cancer is a major cause of death especially among women and medical practitioners have always advised women to examine their breasts regularly so as to detect signs of cancer early enough so as to seek medical care.
