Breast Cancer Treatment In India At Affordable Low Cost - Cancer<br />Breast Cancer Treatment In India<br /> <br />What is Breast Cancer?<br /> <br /> The term breast cancer refers to a malignant tumor that has developed from cells in the breast. The breast is composed of two main types of tissues: glandular tissues and stromal (supporting) tissues.<br /> <br /> <br />Breast Cancer Risk factors<br /> <br /> A risk factor is anything that makes it more likely you'll get a particular disease. Some risk factors, such as your age, sex and family history, can't be changed, whereas others, including weight, smoking and a poor diet, are under your control. <br /> <br />
Other factors that may make you more susceptible to breast cancer include <br /> <br /> 1. Age : -<br /> Your chances of developing breast cancer increase with age. Close to 80 percent of breast cancers occur in women older than age 50. In your 30s, you have a one in 233 chance of developing breast cancer. By age 85, your chance is one in eight.<br /> <br />2. A personal history of breast cancer : -<br />If you've had breast cancer in one breast, you have an increased risk of developing cancer in the other breast....<br /> <br />Symptoms of Breast Cancer<br /> <br /> Early breast cancer usually does not cause pain. In fact, when it first develops, breast cancer may cause no symptoms at all. But as the cancer grows, it can cause these changes:....<br /> <br /> <br />
Diagnosis of Breast Cancer<br /> <br /> Treatment decisions depend on these findings. The first step in the work-up of breast disease is usually a physical exam by a doctor or nurse practitioner. Mammography and ultrasound may be important additions to the physical examination. On the basis of these evaluations, the decision may be made to confirm a clinical impression with a tissue biopsy. <br /> <br /> <br />Ultrasonography : -<br /> Using high-frequency sound waves, ultrasonography can often show whether a lump is solid or filled with fluid. This exam may be used along with Diagnostic Mammography or MRI to answer questions about a specific area of the breast. Because it uses sound waves instead of X-Rays, ultrasound provides information that is different and often complementary to the mammogram.... <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
Biopsy for Breast Cancer<br /> <br />One way to find out if a breast lump or abnormal tissue is cancer is by having a biopsy. During a biopsy, a surgeon, a pathologist or a radiologist removes a portion or all of the suspicious tissue. The suspicious tissue is examined under a microscope by a pathologist who checks for cancer cells and makes the diagnosis....<br /> <br /> <br />Treatment of a Breast Cancer in India<br /> <br />Mastectomy in India<br /> <br />Mastectomy is the surgical removal of a breast. Surgery is presently the most common treatment for breast cancer. Following mastectomy, immediate or delayed breast reconstruction is possible in many instances....<br /> <br /> <br />
Types of Mastectomy<br /> <br /> There are several different types of surgical procedures used to treat breast cancer. Depending on the location or surgeon who performs the procedure, different terms may be used....<br /> <br /> <br />Surgical procedures for breast cancer include : -<br /> <br /> <br /> * Simple or total mastectomy: removal of the breast, with its skin and nipple, but no lymph nodes. In some cases, a separate sentinel node biopsy is performed to remove only the first one to three axillary (armpit) lymph nodes....<br /> <br /> <br />
Axillary Node Dissection in India<br /> <br />Axillary node dissection, the surgical removal of the axillary (armpit) lymph nodes, is usually performed on patients with invasive cancers. A radical mastectomy, modified radical mastectomy, or lumpectomy operation often includes axillary node dissection (this involves a separate incision for lumpectomy patients)...<br /> <br /> <br /> Side effects of axillary node dissection : -<br /> <br /> * lymphedema (swelling of the arm).<br /> * limitations of arm/shoulder movement.<br /> * numbness of upper-arm skin....<br /> <br /> <br />
<br />Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy in India<br /> <br /> Sentinel lymph node biopsy is a new procedure that involves removing only one to three sentinel lymph nodes (the first nodes in the lymphatic chain). To perform sentinel node biopsy, a radioactive tracer and/or blue dye is injected into a region of a tumor....<br /> <br /> <br />Chemotherapy in India<br /> <br /> This section is intended to provide general information on chemotherapy for breast cancer patients and to discuss a variety of possible side effects of chemotherapy drugs. Because chemotherapy regimens are individually tailored, the types of drugs administered and their side effects will vary considerably.....<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
<br />Radiation Therapy for the Treatment of Breast Cancer in India<br /> <br /> Radiation therapy (or radiotherapy) uses high-energy rays to stop cancer cells from growing and dividing. Radiation therapy is often used to destroy any remaining breast cancer cells in the breast, chest wall, or axilla (underarm) area after surgery. Occasionally, radiation therapy is used before surgery to shrink the size of a tumor. A common treatment for early stage breast cancer is breast-conserving therapy. Breast-conserving therapy (BCT) is the surgical removal.....<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
