Diagnosis of Breast Cancer
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 Examination.
A mammogram is a special x-ray examination of the breast made with specific x-ray equipment that can often find tumors too small to be felt during the breast self-examination. A mammogram is the most used radiographic method available today to detect breast cancer early. It is ideal for women older than 40 years, for whom the risk of breast cancer is increased.
The primary use of breast ultrasound today is to help diagnose breast abnormalities detected by a physician during a physical exam (such as a lump or bloody or spontaneous clear nipple discharge) and to characterize potential abnormalities seen on mammography.
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.
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 Treatment options in India.
A) 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.
B) Modified Radical Mastectomy (MRM): This surgery involves the removal of entire breast and axillary lymph nodes.
C) 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.
Many 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 chemotherapy.
Breast Conservation Surgery is always followed by Radiation Therapy. It may also be used after Mastectomy surgery if required. The radiation therapy uses very high energy X-rays to destroy the cancer cells that still may be present in the affected breast or nearby lymph node. This procedure is painless and the patient does not feel anything when the treatment is going on.
