Title: Breast cancer affects everyone !!!

Breast Cancer
  • What is breast cancer?
  • Breast cancer is a malignant tumor (a
    collection of cancer cells) arising from the
    cells of the breast. Although breast cancer
    predominantly occurs in women it can also affect
    men. This article deals with breast cancer in

Diagnosis of Breast Cancer
Breast Self-Examination (BSE)
Breast Self-Examination (BSE) It is a screening
method used in an attempt to detect early breast
cancer. The method involves the woman herself
looking at and feeling each breast for possible
lumps, distortions or swelling.
It's easy to perform a breast self-examination,
and it only takes a few minutes. Although it
might seem strange or inconvenient at first, BSE
is a skill you can use throughout your life to
help ensure good breast health.
Clinical Breast Examination
A clinical breast examination may be part of your
regular checkup. Talk with your health
professional about how often you need a breast
examination. Usually it is recommended to have a
yearly visit to a Doctor for a thorough Breast
Mammogram ,
Breast Ultrasound
Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) A fine
needle is inserted into the lump to aspirate a
few cells and spread on a glass slide and studied
on a microscope to arrive at the diagnosis. FNAC
is mandatory for all breast lumps irrespective of
the age of the patient. Stereotactic Biopsy- It
is a minimally invasive, sophisticated technique
for extremely small lumps or calcium deposits
that cannot be felt but are detected on
mammography. This method combines mammogram and
computer technology to locate and withdraw cells
for analysis.
Breast Cancer - World Class Treatment in India
  • All breast cancer are not the same. More tests
    will be done to find out the specific pattern and
    the extent of the disease or stages. This
    important step is called staging. After an
    accurate diagnosis and proper staging a suitable
    Treatment Plan is made. There are several
    modalities of the treatment-these include
    Surgery, Chemotherapy, Radiation Therapy and
    Hormonal Therapy. These are usually used in a
  • Surgery
  • Breast Conservation Surgery Wide excision of
    only the Breast Lump (saving the normal breast)
    with removal of axillary nodes. At the end of the
    procedure ,you have a near normal
    breast.Modified Radical Mastectomy (MRM) This
    surgery involves the removal of entire breast and
    axillary lymph nodes. This surgery is recommended
    in the following circumstances-
  • Cancer is found in more than one part of the
  • Breast is so small that wide excision of the lump
    can severely deform the breast

Modified Radical Mastectomy with Reconstruction
For those women who are unhappy with the idea of
losing their breast and are suitable for
immediate breast reconstruction can choose this
option. A plastic surgeon is involved in this
surgery and utilizes patient's own tissues to
create a breast which closely matches the
opposite breast, if required an artificial
implant may also be use.
ChemotherapyMany Patients may require
Chemotherapy after the Breast Cancer Surgery. In
Chemotherapy a combination of the drugs is used
to kill the cancer cells. The medical oncologist
will plan the therapy according to the individual
case. Chemotherapy may be administered as
Neoadjuvant,Adjuvant and Palliative
