It a benign (non cancerous) tumor of breast. So, don't worry. But you should take necessary treatment for that. You may surgically remove it, or may take homeopathic treatment. Nanopathy is doing well in this regard. Here you can get Maximum result with Minimum Medicine and rapid cure. Take care.

Know More About Breast Augmentation Surgery

MCh - Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, DNB (Plastic Surgery)

Know More About Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast Augmentation is the most popular plastic surgery procedure performed worldwide.

Breast augmentation can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, enlarging your breasts and making them more proportional with the rest of your body. Breast augmentation can also be used to correct differences in the size of your breasts or sagging breasts, which can occur after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Preoperative Planning

There are many choices and options in breast augmentation, which require careful planning to individualize what are the best options for you. All of these choices have advantages and disadvantages, which you should understand before you make a decision with your surgeon.

Breast augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts. If you want your breasts to look fuller and to be lifted due to sagging, a breast lift may be required in conjunction with breast augmentation. Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation. Your plastic surgeon will assist you in making this decision.

Most patients choose silicone implants rather than saline implants because they have a more natural look and feel. Modern silicone implants are substantially different from the old type of silicone implants used in the 1970s and 80s. Another advantage of the cohesive gel silicone implants is that they are made in a variety of round and tear-drop shapes, which means it is easier to choose an implant to achieve the breast shape that you desire.

Safety Profile
Misinformation emerged about silicone in the late 80's and early 90's. The effects of silicone implants have since been studied extensively these claims were made, looking at 100,000s of women with breast implants. In June 1999, The Institute of Medicine at the National Academy of Sciences in the U.S.A. released a report, which confirmed that there is no increased risk of the development of cancer, immunologic or neurological problems associated with the use of silicone breast implants, which had been claimed in the late 80's. Patients with implants can breastfeed normally as there is no effect on breast milk.


Surgery
Breast augmentation surgery requires a general anaesthetic, with the operation taking 1-2 hours, and is usually performed as a day-stay or overnight-stay procedure.

Implants are placed either behind the breast tissue or under the pectoralis muscle on the chest wall. Breast implants placed underneath the muscle have a more natural shape, a lower chance of capsular contracture (hardening) of the implant, and it is easier for mammography. There is also a choice of incision - in the crease under the breast, under the areola or in the armpit, all of which have advantages and disadvantages, which you should discuss with your surgeon.

Recovery
Following the surgery, it is important to have restricted light activities, with no lifting or heavy duties for 7-10 days. Most patients may drive again and return to work within 7 days after the surgery. Heavy activities and sport should not be undertaken for 3-4 weeks following the surgery. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Some cancer treatments can affect the possibility of having children. It depends upon the type of cancer, what type of treatment has been carried out including surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The details can be discussed with the doctors who have treated the patient. In addition, opinion can be taken from infertility experts.

With dutalosin you can have mild giddiness and retrograde ejaculation. With tolu xr you can have dry mouth and constipation. Don't worry these are the most commonly prescribed medication for prostate.

Once breast cancer operation done is there any chance to repeat cancer? Which test to be done in future?

Graduate of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (GAMS)
Ayurveda, Delhi
Almost any cancer treatment can have side effects. Some might only last for a few days or weeks, but others might last a long time. Some side effects might not even show up until years after you have finished treatment. Visits with your doctor are a good time for you to ask questions and talk about any changes or problems you notice or concerns you have. Surgeons do their best to make sure that all the primary cancer is removed. But it is always possible that a tiny group of cancer cells has been left behind. Your surgeon may recommend additional treatment if they feel that there is a risk that the cancer could come back. The extra treatment might be chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy or biological therapy. These treatments aim to try to control or kill any cells that are left.
