Breast Cancer Treatment

Breast Cancer Treatment

At Surya Hospital, we recognise the impact that breast cancer may have on a person’s life. Our specialized Cancer Care Facility is dedicated to delivering thorough and compassionate care to patients with breast cancer. We provide a wide choice of successful treatment options adapted to individual needs, with the help of our multidisciplinary team of professionals, cutting-edge technology, and a patient-centred approach. 

What is Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is a type of cancer that develops in the cells of the breast. It primarily affects women, although it can also afflict men, but this is far less common. Breast cancer usually begins as a lump or mass in the breast tissue and can spread to other parts of the body if not addressed. Breast cancer is the most often diagnosed malignancy in women. An estimated 2.3 million new cases of breast cancer were recorded worldwide in 2020.

Breast Cancer Detection:

For effective breast cancer treatment, accurate and prompt diagnosis is critical. Surya Hospitals’ Cancer Care Facility provides modern diagnostic capabilities to diagnose and evaluate breast cancer. These include:

  • Mammography: It is a frequent screening method that employs low-dose X-rays to detect abnormalities in breast tissue. It is suggested as a routine screening for women over a specific age or those who are at high risk of getting breast cancer
  • Ultrasound imaging: It creates images of the breast by using sound waves. It can assist in determining if a breast lump is a fluid-filled cyst or a solid mass. Ultrasound is especially useful for confirming abnormalities discovered during mammography
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): MRI scans provide detailed images of the breast using magnetic fields and radio waves. It provides a more thorough picture, especially when several tumours are suspected or when breast cancer has spread to adjacent lymph nodes. MRI is also useful for screening high-risk people
  • Biopsy: A biopsy is a definitive diagnostic technique in which a tiny sample of breast tissue is removed for laboratory analysis. It aids in determining whether a worrisome spot is malignant and provides critical information regarding cancer’s kind and aggressiveness
  • Genetic testing: It may be advised in some circumstances, particularly for people with a strong family history of breast or ovarian cancer. Testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations can provide useful information about an individual’s risk of developing breast cancer and help guide treatment decisions
  • Pathology and Molecular Testing: Molecular testing, such as hormone receptor (oestrogen and progesterone) testing which helps to analyze the expression of HER2 protein can guide therapy decisions and discover targeted medicines

Treatment Strategy:

Surya Hospitals treats breast cancer in a comprehensive and personalized manner. Our multidisciplinary team of oncologists, surgeons and radiologists works together to create a personalized treatment strategy. We take into account aspects such as the stage and kind of breast cancer, overall health, and patient preferences. Our therapeutic strategy may include:

  • Surgery: Surgery is frequently used as the primary treatment for breast cancer. Various operations are performed by our expert surgeons, including lumpectomy (removal of the tumour plus a small amount of surrounding tissue) and mastectomy (removal of the entire breast). Breast reconstruction surgery can be performed in some circumstances to restore the look of the breast
  • Radiation Therapy: High-energy radiation is used to kill cancer cells and shrink tumours. It may be used after surgery to eradicate any remaining cancer cells, or it may be used as the primary treatment in some circumstances. Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), for example, ensures accurate targeting while minimizing damage to healthy tissues
  • Chemotherapy: It is the employment of highly effective medications to kill cancer cells. It can be given before surgery to shrink tumours, after surgery to eliminate any remaining cancer cells, or as the primary treatment. Our medical oncologists create personalized chemotherapy regimens for each patient based on their individual needs
  • Hormone treatment: This can be used to treat hormone receptor-positive breast cancer. This entails inhibiting the actions of hormones on cancer cells, such as oestrogen and progesterone. Hormone replacement therapy can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments
  • Targeted Therapy: By addressing certain molecular defects, targeted therapy specifically targets cancer cells. It is typically used when breast cancer cells overexpress a protein known as HER2

Things to take care of during Breast Cancer Treatment:

Breast cancer treatment can be a difficult path, and at this point, self-care becomes equally essential. Here are a few things to think about:

  • Follow the Treatment Plan
  • Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
  • Manage Side Effects
  • Emotional Support
  • Communicate Openly with Your Medical Staff
  • Regular follow-up sessions
