Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a disease where cells in the breast tissue start to grow in an uncontrolled way and form a tumor. Different types of breast cancer can develop depending on which cells in the breast become cancerous. The two main types are ductal carcinoma, which begins in the milk ducts, and lobular carcinoma, which begins in the lobules that supply milk to the ducts. A cancerous tumor can sometimes be felt as a distinct lump in the breast, but many small tumors are not instantly obvious. The causes of breast cancer are still being determined but genetics, lifestyle, and environmental factors may play a role. Galaxy Care Hospital, the Breast Cancer Hospital in Pune, uses the latest diagnostic techniques to diagnose breast cancer.

Breast Cancer Diagnosis & Treatment

Breast Cancer Diagnosis typically involves a physical exam, mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy. A mammogram can often detect small lumps that cannot be felt. An ultrasound uses sound waves to examine the breast tissue. A biopsy removes a small amount of suspicious tissue for examination under a microscope by a pathologist to determine if cancer is present. Treatment options depend on the type and stage of breast cancer and include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and hormone therapy. Surgery may involve lumpectomy (removal of the tumour only) or mastectomy (removal of the entire breast).

FAQS

1. Can women of all ages develop Breast Cancer?

Yes, Breast Cancer can affect women of all ages. While the risk increases as a woman gets older, breast cancer is no longer mainly a disease of older women. Younger women, below 40 years of age are also getting diagnosed. Early detection is key regardless of age. All women need to be breast-aware and report any changes to their doctor right away. If you see the symptoms of breast cancer, choose the best Breast Cancer Hospital in Pune soon.

2. How long does Breast Cancer treatment take?

Breast cancer treatment varies depending on several factors such as the type and stage of cancer, the patient's overall health, and response to treatment. But on average, treatment lasts between 4 to 6 months if the cancer is caught early. It may involve surgery first to remove the tumor, followed by radiotherapy, chemotherapy or both to eliminate any remaining cancer cells. Sometimes hormone therapy is also recommended which could continue for 5-10 years. At Galaxy Care Hospital, our Breast Cancer Specialists in Pune monitor patients for long-term after active treatment ends.

3. What are the side effects of breast Cancer treatment?

Breast cancer treatments can often cause side effects but they are usually temporary and manageable. Some common side effects include fatigue, nausea, hair loss, skin irritation, lymphedema (swelling), joint pain, weight changes, sexual health issues and fertility problems. The type and severity may vary depending on the individual's treatment protocol. However, our Breast Cancer Specialists in Pune are experts in managing treatment side effects.

4. What are the Breast Cancer prognosis and survival rates?

The earlier breast cancer is detected, the better the prognosis tends to be. For those without spread to lymph nodes or distant organs, the 5-year survival rate is good. However, even if it has spread, treatments have advanced to improve long-term survival. With early detection and effective treatments, many women now live for many disease-free years post-diagnosis.
