FAQ’s

Leading breast cancer specialist in Pune has explained the faq’s about breast cancer that many of us were not aware of:

Breast cancer is a disease that causes tissues or cells in the breast to grow out of control. There are different kinds of breast cancer which causes accordingly. The different kinds of breast cancer depend on which cells in the breast turn into cancer and can start in different parts of the breast. A breast is created by three main parts which are given below.

  • Lobules
  • Ducts
  • Connective Tissue

The lobules are the glands that produce milk and the ducts are tubes that carry milk to the nipple. The connective tissue surrounds and holds everything together. Maximum breast cancers are created in the ducts or lobules and can spread outside the breast through blood vessels and lymph vessels. It is assumed to have permeated when breast cancer spreads to other parts of the body,

The most common kinds of breast cancer are invasive ductal carcinoma (The cancer cells grow outside the ducts into other parts of the breast tissue), Invasive lobular  (cancer cells spread from the lobules to the breast tissues that are close by) and several other kinds of breast cancer, such as Ductal carcinoma, Paget’s disease, Medullary, Mucinous and Inflammatory Breast Cancer.

There are no certain rules about who gets this disease. The two maximum important risk factors are being a woman and increasing age. Yet, other factors may increase your risk and some that may lower it also.

The growth of breast cancer may be determined by factors that affect the levels of female hormones that circulate in your body throughout life. These factors include your age at first pregnancy, the age when you began your menstrual period, the number of times you have been pregnant, whether you have breastfed your children and your level of physical activity.

Women are often confused by what it means to have a family history of breast cancer. Few doctors usually look only at very close blood relatives (like your mother, sisters and daughters) when determining your family history of these diseases. Your own risk is significantly increased if one or more of these relatives has had breast cancer. Though many of these “secondary” relatives have had the disease, your risk is usually not specifically changed.

Precise changes in the breast may be early symptoms of breast cancer. Signifying what these changes look and feel like can help people access the right treatment as soon as possible. Grasping the various parts of the breast and their function can help people be more aware of any abnormalities or changes.

Most people think of breast cancer detection is due to a lump in the breast and this is a possible warning sign but it is not the only one. Several other early and common signs of breast cancer are given below.

    • Bumps or Lumps inside the breast or underarm area
    • Changes in breast size and shape
    • Causes pain in a specific area that does not go away
    • Projecting veins on the surface of the breast
    • Nipple discharge that starts suddenly
    • A rash or sore on the nipple
    • Redness or darkening, swelling of the breast
    • Dimpling of the skin on the breast
    • Inversion of other parts or the nipple of the breast

Doing exercise regularly and keeping a healthy weight can help lower your breast cancer risk. Countless points over the course of a lifetime can influence your breast cancer risk. Getting older or inherited changes, you can’t change these factors but you can help lower your risk of breast cancer by taking care of your health in the following ways which are given below:

  • Limit alcoholic drinks or don’t drink alcohol
  • If you have been told to take or taking hormone replacement therapy or oral contraceptives (birth control pills) and find out if it is right for you.
  • If possible breastfeed your children
  • Talk to your doctor about other ways to lower your risk, if you have a family history of breast cancer in your BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes
  • Through lingering healthy throughout your life will lower your risk of developing cancer and can improve your chances of surviving cancer if it occurs accordingly.

These are a few factors that can guide a particular individual in making health and lifestyle choices to lower the risk of breast cancer.

An X-ray picture of the breast is known as a Mammogram and doctors use a mammogram to look for early signs of breast cancer. In this test, the breast is pressed between two metal plates and then an X-ray image of the breast tissue is taken. The X-ray image can show if there are any unusual changes or masses in the breast tissue that may need further investigation and is the most common way of screening for breast cancer

The information it provides can save lives and few tips are given below for getting a Mammogram test:

  • Breasts may be swollen during the week of your period or the week before the period, so try not to have your mammogram.
  • Don’t wear deodorant, perfume, or powder on the day of a mammogram because it shows up as white spots on the X-ray.
  • Instead of a dress, some women prefer to wear a top with a skirt or pants. For the mammogram, you need to undress from your waist up.

Experiencing a mammogram test is uncomfortable for most women and some women find it painful. Though a mammogram takes only a few moments and the discomfort is over soon. What you feel depends on the size of your breasts, the skill of the technologist, and how much they need to be pressed.

Your breasts may be more soft or sensitive if have your period or you are about to get them. A Radiologist doctor with special training will read the mammogram. The doctor will look at the results for early signs of breast cancer or other problems.

In several ways, Breast cancer is treated. It also rests on what kind of breast cancer you have and how far it has spread. Doctors from different specialties often work together to treat breast cancer and surgeons are the doctors who are experts of processing operations.

Doctors who treat cancer with medicine are known as  Medical oncologists. Doctors who treat cancer with radiation called Radiation oncologists. An Individual with breast cancer often gets more than one kind of treatment which are given below.

  • Surgery – Doctors cut out cancer tissue during an operation
  • Chemotherapy Treatment – Special medicines are used to kill the cancer cells or shrink them and the drugs can be pills you take or medicines given in your veins or sometimes both
  • Treatment Of Hormonal therapy – Blocks cancer cells from getting the hormones they need to grow
  • Treatment Of Biological Therapy – Control side effects from other cancer treatments or works with your body’s immune system to help it fight cancer cells
  • Treatment Of Radiation Therapy – Uses high-energy rays (similar to X-rays) to kill the cancer cells.

There are few things that you have to consult a doctor about breast reconstruction surgery and below are some questions regarding that.

  • Am I a eligible for breast reconstruction?
  • Which or what type of breast reconstruction is best for me?
  • How many reconstruction procedures have you done?
  • What all types of reconstruction are you most experienced in?
  • What are the risks of breast reconstruction?
  • When is the best timing for reconstruction for me?

Selecting to undergo breast reconstruction surgery is a personal choice. Many Individuals mourn the loss of their breasts or experience severe anxiety and self-image problems after undergoing mastectomy. Due to the above reason, they choose to have breast reconstruction surgery. Though, after choosing breast reconstruction.

Checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before there are signs or symptoms of the disease is known as Breast cancer screening. All women need to be knowledgeable by their doctor about the best screening options for them. After discussing with your doctor the benefits and risks of screening. Individual decide with a doctor whether screening is right for you and if so when to have it. This is called informed and shared decision-making.

Discuss to your doctor which breast cancer screening tests are right for you and when you should have them. Every screening test has benefits and risks, which is why it’s important to discuss with your doctor before getting any screening test, like a mammogram (Ultrasound scan).

NO not always. Some breast lumps almost 8 out of 10 are cancer-free. Having a cyst (a sac) or a fibroadenoma (an uneven development but is not cancer) is more popular. Nothing is proved cancer or noncancerous without biopsy and breast surgeons consultation. During a woman’s menstrual process, individual lumps can also come and go which is not fibroadenoma . it is called fibroadenosis which can be treated with medications.

Not at all, It is difficult to say that you risk-free even your mammogram is normal. It would help if you got many more tests done, such examination and consultation with breast surgeon to know a conclusion of mammography, MRI or ultrasound, to be 99- 100% sure that you do not have breast cancer.

Axillary Clearance

If you are not aware, know that Axilla is biologically known as the armpit, and axillary clearance is a method that is entirely related to armpits surgery.

In axillary clearance, you would be able to notice that the cancer tissues are firstly checked around the armpit area, and if any, they are thoroughly removed from that area. Moreover, the part that is removed during this surgery is called lymph nodes.

This is a kind of breast cancer surgery with the help of which you would be able to take advantage of two benefits, and those are as follows- 

  • You would be able to get rid of all the cancer tissues from your breast and axilla. 
  • Along with that, you would also be able to remove cancer-producing tissues, and hence you will never face this problem again in your life. 

Axillary Reverse Mapping

Knowing about the actual location of arms lymphatics and nodes is extremely important during breast cancer surgeries, but in the same way, finding these parts are extremely difficult too. 

This is the reason the Axillary reverse mapping process is created. During this process, blue color ink is sent inside the upper arm, and hence because of that injected ink, we can know about the position of arms lymphatics and nodes. This is a method which we will do in early breast cancer patients to avoid arm lymphatics to decrease arm lymphoedema which is usual complication after axillary clearance..
