Surgical Treatment For Pain And Lumps In Breasts Of Women!

MBBS, MS

Surgical Treatment For Pain And Lumps In Breasts Of Women!

The incidence of pain and lumps in the breast is on the rise. Breast cancer has grown in incidence over the years. More women are getting diagnosed with it, and the age at which they are being diagnosed has reduced too. Therefore, preventative checks and screenings have gone up significantly. The number of women diagnosed with small lumps has gone up drastically. The good thing is that since these are diagnosed in the early stages, the treatment is simpler and the prognosis far better than women who get diagnosed much later in life.

In a majority of cases, once a lump is identified the most preferred treatment is removal. This is known as lumpectomy. However, before a final decision is made to remove the lump, there are certain tests that are run by the doctor to confirm the diagnosis and extent of spread.

  1. A thorough breast exam to identify if this is an isolated lump or if there are more lumps in either breast. The exact shape and size of the lump also need to be identified so that treatment can be planned accordingly.
  2. Imaging to see if the lymph nodes have been involved. In most cases, there could be spread to the lymph nodes in the armpits which also need to be removed if required. If the lump is too big or too many in number, then a mastectomy may be required instead of a lumpectomy. This requires removal of the entire breast tissue on one or both sides (rarely) along with involved lymph nodes.

Pre-surgery: Once the diagnosis is confirmed, then the doctor will plan treatment. Prior to the surgery,

  • Talk to your doctor about your other medical conditions and medications and allergies, if any
  • Gynecologic history is very important to be discussed in detail
  • Blood thinners have to be stopped prior to the surgery
  • Post-surgery care needs to be planned, including a caretaker for a few days and postop care

During surgery:

  • Lumpectomy or mastectomy is often done under general anaesthesia
  • This requires hospitalization and carries the risks associated with anaesthesia
  • The outlined breast tissue or complete breast and surrounding lymph nodes will be removed. The area will be closed using sutures and bandaged

Post-surgery:

  • The wound needs to heal, and so postop care is very important
  • For the first few days, painkillers and antibiotics are used to control pain and infection
  • As a follow-up, some women may require radiation therapy to contain the suspicious tissue that may be left behind after lumpectomy
  • If extensive breast tissue was removed, some women may prefer to have reconstructive surgery done
  • Remember that lumpectomy is not a definitive procedure, and there could be cases that require a repeat operation

Advantages:

  1. Less invasive compared to a mastectomy
  2. The appearance of the breast is minimally affected, and symmetry is maintained

Disadvantages:

  1. May not ensure complete removal
  2. May require additional radiation therapy
  3. May require repeat surgery

How Robotic Cancer Surgery Can Benefit You?

How Robotic Cancer Surgery Can Benefit You?

With the dawn of modern technology, the sight of robots performing a surgery is fast turning into a reality. Robotic surgery is one of the latest and greatest advancements in surgical cancer care. It is mostly sought for its unmatched levels of precision and control.

The da Vinci Robot, which is a widely used robotic surgery, employs the use of 3D modelling, touch screen controls, ultra-modern surgical attachments and other robotic tools. This surgical method is one of the greatest inventions in modern surg
ery that aims to provide greater control to the surgeon at all times. For patients, this means quicker recovery times, minimal scarring, lower complications and higher satisfaction.



Robotic cancer surgery can be performed under the following conditions:

Benefits of robotic cancer surgery:

  • Less scarring: The minimally invasive approach of robotic surgery contributes to minimal scarring. Instead of having a deeper incision of up to 5 or 6” on the skin, patients can have a series of small incisions or one relatively smaller incision, based on the nature of the surgery.
  • Shorter hospitalization: With minimal incisions, postoperative care is speeded and pain is lessened. This surgery will not require the patients to stay for a prolonged period of time in the hospital. At the most, they tend to spend up to two nights in the hospital, if the situation demands so. As a result of this, within no time, you can get back to your normal life.
  • Less drugs: With traditional surgery, typically a patient is administered a lot of painkillers to alleviate pain. However, with robotic surgeries, thanks to decreased postoperative pain after surgery, the patient will not need excessive painkillers to help them deal with pain.
  • No blood loss: During traditional open surgery, patients tend to typically lose between 600cc to 1000cc of blood, depending on the area of treatment. As a result, postoperative transfusion of blood becomes a necessity. However, during robotic surgery, blood loss is usually 200cc or less and so there is no need for transfusions.
  • Accuracy and precision: The 3D modelling techniques and other advanced tools employed by robotic surgery allows for better planning and accuracy, which is greatly needed in cancer surgeries. Especially in the case of prostate cancer, if the tumour is in a critical location, then a robotic surgery is handy to carry out the procedure, without damaging the important nerves of erections.

Stomach Cancer - Dispelling Common Myths!

Stomach Cancer - Dispelling Common Myths!

Gastric cancer is more commonly known as stomach cancer. It is usually diagnosed in later stages as symptoms are few in early disease and are often neglected by people. Feeling of fullness in upper abdomen, decrease in hunger, weight loss, weakness, vomiting, are some of the common symptoms. Like all cancers, stomach cancer is shrouded in a culture of myths and baseless facts.

Here are some of these myths and actual facts to dispel any doubts: 

 

 

  1. It’s not cancer if there is no pain: In the early stages of stomach cancer, symptoms are either absent or very mild so that they are usually neglected. This leads to delay in diagnosis. It needs to be stressed again that absence of pain does not mean that cancer can not be there. Slight fullness in the upper abdomen, decrease in appetite, etc. can be signs of stomach cancer.
  2. Sustained indigestion equals stomach cancer: While it is true that one of the symptoms of stomach cancer is indigestion, burping and/or acidity. But, indigestion doesn't always mean that it is stomach cancer. Most of the times, indigestion is not due to cancer. However, if there is recent onset of indigestion (from 2 weeks to a few months) with loss of appetite, weight loss and vomiting, possibility of cancer should be thought of and testing carried out. 
  3. Stomach cancer is rare: Stomach cancer occurrence varies and it is more common in some areas and much less common in other areas. However, in totality, it is one of the very common cancer types. In India, stomach cancer is more common in southern and north-eastern parts of the country but it can occur in persons in any part of the country. 
  4. Stomach cancer is not genetic: Even though it is not commonly seen as a hereditary disease, stomach cancer can be passed down through the genes, thereby increasing the chances of stomach cancer in people who possess it by 70 to 80 percent. Mutation in the CDH1 gene is usually the reason behind this. Sometimes also known to contribute to breast cancer in women. 
  5. Stomach cancer has no cure: This is a misconception. Except for most advancer stage of cancer (stage IV), stomach cancer can be cured by proper treatment. Surgery is the mainstay of curative treatment for stomach cancer. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are also required in addition to surgery in many cases."

Ca 125 test itself can not suggest anything, need doctor to listen to detailed medical history in form of questions and answers, examination of patient and sometimes reports so meet concerned doctor.- Gynecologist.

Hello Doctor, My Grandfather aged 82 has been diagnosed with stomach cancer. The patient is very week and the doctor ruled out the surgery. Now doctors have started him with Capiibine 500 mg tablet (4 tablets in 24 hours). He is not able to eat much due to nausea and vomiting and also feels very week. After consulting with doctors they have given him Megeetron 40 mg tablet and Ondem MD 8 mg tablets.

Dear Dar Stomach cancer should be treated with surgery as primary treatment It is by chemo sensitive disease Effect of capcetabine without surgery is minimal but side effects can be distressing Magestrol acetate 160 mg is a good option to improve appetite.
