The best thing about breast cancer is that it is the most curable form of cancer. The treatment for breast cancer is now available at Brightstar Hospital, Moradabad.. Early detection followed by right treatment can save life of the patient. The basic and the very first symptoms for breast cancer are any changes in shape of the breast or lump in the breast or any discharge from the breast. Breast cancer begins in breast tissue which is made up of glands for milk production called lobules, and the ducts that connect the lobules to the nipple. The remainder of the breast is made up of fatty, connective, and lymphatic tissue. Breast cancer in 98% of the cases is in females. However in most of the cases diagnosis of breast lump, nipple discharge or breast pain is delayed as women are not comfortable discussing the same with male doctors.
Symptoms of Breast Cancer
Puckering & Dimpling of skin of breast
Nipple Retraction & discharge of breast
Thickening of skin or lump or “knot”
Change in breast size
Pain or tenderness or Redness in breast
Change in nipple position of breast
Scaling around nipples
Sugery - Once Cancer has been diagnosed through Mammography, Breast Ultrasound, FNAC or Biopsy then PET CT is done to check whether the cancer is localized in the Breast or has spread to other parts of the body. If the cancer is localized in the Breast then the best treatment option is surgery.
Lumpectomy - Lumpectomy is done to remove the extra growth in the form of lump by the Breast Surgeon. Lumpectomy, also known as breast-conserving surgery is done to remove only the tumour and a small amount of surrounding tissue. Lumpectomy is also done in cases where the Breast Lump is non cancerous.
Mastectomy - Mastectomy or Radical Mastectomy is the surgery in which the entire breast and the lymph nodes in the axilla are removed. Our breast surgeons are trained to remove most of the axilla to prevent any recurrence of the cancer in the future.
Chemotherapy - Chemotherapy is generally advised by the doctors in case the tumour is cancerous and too big in size to operate. Chemotherapy is sometimes done before the breast cancer surgery to reduce the size of the tumour.
Radiation therapy through IGRT or IMRT is mostly given post breast cancer surgery.
The cost of Breast Cancer Surgery is INR 40,000 to INR 60,000 depending upon whether a mastectomy is being done or just the lumpectomy with breast preservation is being done. The hospital stay in lumpectomy is for just one day whereas the stay in mastectomy is about 3 days. However the further treatment for the breast cancer would depend upon the result of the tissue biopsy and IHC Cancer Markers (ER, PR and HER2). These markers would decide if the patient needs chemotherapy or hormonal therapy.
