Do a PSA test if PSA is more then do a biopsy, if detected as a Prostate cancer then treatment is there and if detected as Benign Hyperplasia then also treatment is there.

My girlfriend has a lump on breast, this was like a big 1 Rupee coin, this is ok? I heard many people have that, also I hard that this is symptoms of breast cancer . What to do.

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS

Lumps in breast can be of various types and their occurrence depends on the age of woman. I would assume for the sake of answering the question, that your girlfriend is anywhere between 20 and 30 years of age. This is an age where 9 out of 10 breast lumps are noncancerous. But yet a possibility of cancer cannot be completely ruled out. Every month woman's body prepares her for a pregnancy and there are hormonal ups and downs. Such changes are seen in breasts also. These changes are usually temporary unless a pregnancy occurs. But sometimes these changes persist and can be felt as a lump or generalized lumpiness. If the lump is cancerous it may be associated with growth of lump, nipple discharge, redness, lumps in armpit etc. To know exactly what it is, it is better to consult a surgeon, who will examine her, get a sonography of breasts and if the surgeon thinks it is necessary, a price might be removed from lump and checked under microscope for sure diagnosis. I hope this helps. See a surgeon.

No fibroadenoma do not become cancerous. But there is no medical management for fibroadenoma. If it is symptomatic or bothering u cosmetically then u can get it removed surgically.

I am a 65 year old female and had a radical mastectomy, as there were traces of cancer which has now spread to the liver etc. Do I have a chance without chemotherapy or radiation? Diet and other health care possibility?

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, if the liver was involved it becomes a stage 4 cancer. Since local disease has been removed by radical mastectomy you need some form of treatment for metastasis. We should know the other parameters of the biopsy like hormonal status. If positive you will need convenient chemo or hormone therapy.

My wife have a lump in left breast but we don't know is this a cancer or not please help me to know whether it is a cancer or simply a lump.

M.S, MBBS
General Surgeon, Bangalore
As per your question, you are aware that your wife has a lump in her breast. Going by the age, and if there is no family history of having cancer of either breast or ovary, all the probability is that it could be an harmless lump. Nevertheless, it has to be confirmed. It is suggested that you consult a surgeon for further evaluation which includes an Ultrasound of breast (to find out if any additional smaller lumps) and a cytology test if required.

Some lumpish feeling can be due to hormonal changes while mensutral cycle. Then also you should go for ultrasonography of breast. And then surgical consultation.

Surgical Procedure for Treating Breast Cancer

Surgical Procedure for Treating Breast Cancer

With the recent number of breast cancer cases on the rise, it is important that we should get the examination done on a regular basis as a preventive measure. Even if someone is suffering from it, it is important that we should make an effort and learn about.

If you have breast cancer then a surgery will be part of your treatment. Based on the condition, surgery will be carried out due to any of the following reasons:
1. To remove the cancerous tissues from the breast
2. To reconstruct the breast once the cancer is removed
3. To check whether the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes below the arm
4. To treat symptoms of cancer that has progressed to an advanced stage

Breast cancer surgery may be classified into two types
1. Mastectomy: Mastectomy involves removing the entire breast; tissues in the adjoining region may also be removed. A double mastectomy is a procedure where both the breasts are removed.
2. Breast-conserving surgery: In this surgery, only parts of the breast affected by cancer are removed. The area of the breast that is to be removed will depend on the severity of the cancer. Some healthy tissues may also be removed in this surgery.

Usually, if a woman is in the initial stages of cancer then she may opt for the latter as it entails removing parts of the breast. They may also undergo radiation therapy along with these surgeries.
For checking if the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes below the arm, the lymph nodes are removed from the body. Once they are removed, they are studied under a microscope to check if it has spread, if yes then the extent of their damage. This procedure is carried out along with the surgery to remove the cancer.

Once the mastectomy procedure is completed, you can opt for a breast reconstruction surgery to rebuild the area. You may opt for this procedure at the time of breast cancer removal or at a later stage. If you are considering breast reconstruction surgery then you should discuss with a surgeon.

Surgery is sometimes not used to treat cancer, but in slowing the progression of cancer or even reducing its symptoms.It is important you talk to your surgeon before the procedure to understand the goal of the surgery.

Hello my wife has pain in her breast in left side. Like muscle catch. When she lift anything from left hand she gets pain. And when she takes deep breath she gets pain. Only In left side below her Breast.

Fellow Breast Surgery (MUHS), DNB (General Surgery), MBBS
Oncologist, Aurangabad
The way you have described your wife's pain, it is unlikely, although not impossible, to be due to any disease in breast. If it would have been due to breast disease, other brest complaints like lump, heaviness, skin changes, blood or pus discharge, might have been present. But nothing can be said surely unless a doctor examines her. So it will be better to see a doctor relating to muscles and bone diseases, (orthopedician), to rule out cause of pain originating in the wall of the chest which lies below the breast. He will suggest solution as well as if a breast surgeon is to be seen or not. Hope this helps.

pancreatic cancers can cause obstruction to biliary passage and cause jaundice for which stent if placed to secure passage further treatment will depend on his general conditions and radiological extent of disease. chemotherapy can start as soon as his bilirubin is within normal limit and general conditions improved.
