Man sucking a woman’s breast helps in early detection of breast cancer, according to a medical expert Abigael Shona.
Concise News reports that Shona, speaking in Ilorin, Kwara state, on Monday, emphasised that contrary to popular belief that men sucking their wife’s breast could prevent breast cancer, it could only help detect it.
“Most women who breastfeed experience hormonal changes during lactation that delay their menstrual periods,” she told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
“This reduces a woman’s lifetime exposure to hormones like estrogen, which can promote breast cancer cell growth.
“And what sucking the breast by a man can only do is to detect breast cancer by feeling the lumps early enough so as to seek medical help.”
The doctor encouraged women to allow their spouses to massage and fondle their breast to detect cancer early.
“We are encouraging women not to deprive their husbands from the pleasure of breast sucking and fondling as it will also be beneficial to them,” she said.
“This is because in as much as we preach 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 address the scourge.
“If breast cancer is detected early before it gets to an advanced stage, it could be survived.”
But she also advised that men could as well have breast cancer.
