Diagnosed with breast cancer? There are different breast cancer treatment options. Discuss, think and then decide your choice of treatment. In early stages, Breast Cancer Therapies works best. This kind of therapy treats the tumour without affecting the rest of the body. Types of breast cancer therapies used are breast cancer surgery or radiation therapy. Breast cancer surgery removes as much of the cancer as possible and restores the shape of the breasts. In case of radiation therapy, high-energy rays are used to kill the cancer cells only in that part of the body. In advanced stages, breast cancer is typically treated using drugs which can be given either orally or by injecting into the bloodstream. This type of treatment is known as systemic therapies. Here the drugs reach cancer cells anywhere in the body. Depending on the type of cancer, systemic therapies generally use different types of drugs like Chemotherapy, Hormone therapy or even Targeted therapy. Duration of breast cancer treatment varies. While the surgery treatment may extend from 7-14 days, radiation therapy takes 1-6 weeks to time. Again chemotherapy treatment is done over a period of 3-6 months or 6-8 months depending on the dose of drug. While chemotherapy costs around INR 30,000 in each session, the cost for targeted therapy is approximately INR 3.5 lakh per session. Radiation therapy costs over 1.5 lakh per cycle and a surgery session will cost you around INR 2 lakh. Different forms of breast cancer treatment are known for their high rates of success.
