Hi,

I am Dr. Veda Padma Priya, Oncologist. Cancer was so tiny to find and she was diagnosed and Drs found that she had breast cancer. She decided to remove her entire breast. Luckily it was stage zero cancer an we call it a DCIS. This cancer does not threaten your life. And then we saw that she lived for 20 years after she was discovered with cancer. This story is important for you all to go for early diagnosis. Because cervical cancer is so common than breast cancer that we also do the screening for cervical cancer. In 2018, WHO discovered that breast cancer is so common that we have to get it screened.

So, we need to get screened timely, we need to measure the risk and adopt healthy lifestyle measures. Breast cancer is rare in men but very common in women. Increasing age is again a risk factor. Other risk factors are hormonal and menstrual changes. So, having early periods, late menopause, having no children at all or having your first child after 35 years of age increases the risk of breast cancer. Incidentally having kids more than 4 reduces the risk of breast cancer. Another risk factor is obesity. Modifiable risk factors are using hormonal therapies, diet, alcohol, obesity and planning your family. Unmodified risk factors gender, age which is beyond your control, genetic history, 10% of the breast cancer can be hereditary. Breast self examination is the first step. So, you should go for these check-ups annually.

Thank You.

I am dr Veda. The breast cancer surgeon surgical oncologist who specialises in breast cancer treatment.

Today we just want to give a message on breast cancer treatment is as of today in India. So breast cancer is one of the most common cancer amongst women. All over the world it is a number one can amongst Indian all over the world and even in India initially 10 years back it used to be survival cancer. But nowadays we have a lot of breast cancer is coming up and it has replaced cervical cancer to take the number one position in the above sentence even in the rural centres.

For an exception of few sentences for cervical cancer does more than the rest of the centre breast cancer has topped the charts as of 2018. The recent WHO on ICMR surveys that have come up the state that breast cancers the most common one and one of the square 25 to 30 women in India are at risk of developing breast cancer in the west such as US the numbers of Huge it's about 1 and 8 women are at risk of developing breast cancer. But that does not that should not make us more satisfactory or complacent because a population is huge so for a population as huge as Indian population number of breast cancer 8 March 5 so per year we see about 1.5 Lakh cases of new cases of breast cancer.

What is more worrisome is that is one population is large second is the population of people with breast cancer come at an advanced stage as compared to be used in the West president stage 1 and stage 2 where is in India breast cancer stage 3 and 4 in which it is less advanced. Second thing women in India the great of for tomorrow's find the Biology is not so good and much more aggressive treatment so that makes it different the scenario is different as of the west.

The second thing because of the highest age of presentation to cure rates of survival rates also slightly lower when compared to the west that means out of 1.5 Lakh woman who been duly diagnose breast cancer every year only 50% of the episode 75000 make it be cure in five years of diagnosis only one and two women diagnosed with breast cancer come to the come to Healthcare get proper treatment and get cured. So what we have to understand this we need to know the symptoms of breast cancer treatment of breast cancer to cast an early to make effect cost-effective treatment and to improve the survival rates the second message that I want to pass whatever treatment.

Whatever standard of care of breast cancer treatment is available all over the world is very much available in India is very much available in Delhi and it is very much available in the affordable cost and acceptable for everyone 10 years back treatment for breast cancer would be the removal of entire breast to mastectomy but now mastectomy is for very old people one simple surgery could take care of the rest of it 12 simple surgery to take care of the rest of its population surgery to take care of the rest of us even less population reconstruction plastic breast surgery cost of breast cancer treatment we come along way and with the recent advances in technology parsley second major advancements in interprocess of breast cancer management.

In the West a number of people are picked up even before they have the lump that is because of the screening mammography their lesion are picked up lump is leas than 1cm in India we also have a section of people who come very early they get picked up in a Mammogram even before patient is able to feel the lump in the asymptomatic face pedicure rates are very high the second major advance is genetic testing all of you and Angelina Jolie story and so we do have about 10% of people of hereditary breast cancer in home the bracket genes are involved and Bracket genetic testing is very much available in India at an affordable rate and if it is present then prophylactic surgeries may be option which certain people might opt for so the message for today's breast cancer is one of the very much curable cancers of all most of the cancers and of all the character of amongst women so the message for today is breast.
