My mother in law had phylloides tumor of left breast. Tumor size of 20×15 cm. Can you suggest me what treatment is necessary?

Oncologist, Mumbai
What is the core Biopsy? If malignant phylloides, was CT scan thorax done? Surgery with 1 cm margin all around which usually entails a mastectomy with a large skin excision. Nodal clearance is not needed unless documented positive nodes. Reconstruction with LD or DIEP FLAP. Decision regarding adjuvant radiation after the final report.

I have very small breast. There is a problem of self confidence and I want it to be normal in size according to my figure. Please suggest me any cream or pill because I don't want any surgery.

Breast consists of breast tissue and fat. The genetic make up of each person determines the size of the breasts. The breast tissue is responsive to the hormonal stimulus, hence there is increase in the size of breast during pregnancy, lactating, premenstrual period, due to OC Pills and HRT. The progesterone temporarily increases the breast size and has protective effect on breast cancer as seen with pregnancy. Estrogen has lasting effects on the breast tissue but also increases density of breast which not only increases the risk of cancer but also causes difficulty in detecting the breast cancers by mammogram. There are various oils and massages advertised for increasing the size of breast, but I have never seen any of them working. One thing that works is pectoral exercise, which increases the bulk of the underlying muscle, causing prominence of the overlying breast. It increases the cup size from A cup to may be A+ or B. If you want significant increase in size the options are lipofilling, but requires you to undergo the surgery multiple times and also only modest increase in size occurs. The second option is implants which is the most commonly performed procedure for breast augmentation worldwide. If you want to discuss this further, feel free to contact me for the same.

If the breast cancer has fungated then it is better to do a toilet mastectomy to remove the same. What is the Biopsy and IHC report of the Breast? I would be able to opine better if you send the reports directly to me.

You needs a proper evaluation by a breast surgeon, which entails a history and clinical examination with a mammography and an ultrasound if not done already. Mammography gives an idea about the whole breast and Opposite Breast. I prefer a core Biopsy, which gives an idea about the grade, type and immunohistochemistry of cancer, which is important for getting an idea about the prognosis and deciding the line of treatment. (I am not comfortable operating based on FNAC as it has false negatives as well as false positives) If Cancer is locally advanced or some times in large operable wanting breast conservation surgery or some early Breast cancers which are Triple negative or Her 2 +ve, then upfront chemotherapy is preferred before surgery. If locally advanced or > 5 cms then we prefer doing a pet scan or a CECT abdomen and pelvis with a bone scan to rule out spread of cancer. Surgery for the breast may be lumpectomy or a mastectomy. Axillary surgery may be sentinel node biopsy or an Axillary nodal clearance. If conservation then the reconstruction could be with oncoplasty which approximates the Breast tissue to prevent deformity (but leads to smaller breast if large lump excised and needs mammoplasty of that breast as well as reduction of Opposite Breast), or using the latest chest wall perforator flaps (new technique to avoid deformity or reduction of breast size especially after a large lumpectomy in a small Breast, which I have learnt in UK and is becoming quite popular there as the size of both breasts remains same) After the surgery, chemotherapy is given (if not given before or courses not completed) the type of chemotherapy or targeted therapy varies according to the report. All lumpectomy and mastectomy for large and node positive cancers need radiation therapy too, which is given after the chemotherapy. Also depending upon the immunohistochemistry, targeted therapy (transtuzumab) May be advised for 1 year and hormonal therapy for 5-10 years. The follow up would be with annual mammogram, clinical examination with some blood tests. If found to be metastatic then treatment would be mainly chemotherapy and hormonal therapy, with surgery for good responders or in cases of bleeding, where radiation is the other option. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to share the reports or discuss this further. The surgery cost at my hospital is around 1.25 lacs. If the patient is poor and non affording, we have a charity cell which would assess the financial status of the patients and waive off around 50% of the charges and also refer to various NGO's and CM/ PM fund for the rest of the treatment.

Rest lumps Swelling of Lymph Node My sister is aged about 40 years. She had a lump in her right breast a mammogram was done and then 2.5 cms lump with benign lymph nodes were noted. A quadrantectomy on right breast only was done and no lymph nodes were extracted. Upon HPE it was revealed that she has ductal infiltrating carcinoma. Then PET CT was done and no distant metastasis and no lymphadenopathy was reveled. However focal activity in colon wall noted. It is advised to undergo 4 cycles of CT and the breast only irradiation. Sir what would be the ideal procedure and treatment schedule. Is removal of lymph nodes and hpe of same again required or can we just go ahead with above treatment. I can send the reports if required.

We need to address the axilla especially for staging. 30% of nodes which are negative for cancer on ultrasound, PET scan and Core Biopsy or FNAC, turn out to be positive on sentinel node Biopsy. Ideal procedure for a negative axilla should be a sentinel node Biopsy and if found positive, then an Axillary clearance should be done. (some prefer to leave it at that if 1-2 nodes only positive or radiate the axilla) This staging of Axilla helps to decide the prognosis of the disease. E.g we may shift to adria based chemo plus taxanes. Also the ER/PR/Her 2 status determines the treatment needed I would be able to opine better if you send the reports directly.

Dercums disease is the in condition which multiple lipomas can develop over the body. They are usually harmless except for the cosmesis. Surgical removal is recommended if the lipoma only if significant enlargement in size especially if it is quite rapid (due to the rare risk of sarcomatous transformation) Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

My Aunt age 61 years is having Elevation of CEA,(5.5), consulted with Dr. she prefer to do Colonoscopy,, But she is not willing to do that, Hence is there any option to make test? Please confirm. And Please inform is Elevated CEA is related to colon cancer?

Oncologist, Mumbai
Elevated CEA could be due to cancer of Colon (most common), stomach cancer, lung cancer or medullary thyroid cancer. As well as few other causes. Screening with fecal occult blood test is recommended. For high risk colonoscopy is recommended. The CEA is borderline elevated in your case (normal upto 5). If doubt is there based on symptoms, better to do a colonoscopy. If Patient not at all willing, then go the fecal occult blood test and a CT scan (some may suggest a PET CT, which is not the ideal investigation but suggested due to logistics) Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

HI Sir, My age is 32 years. I have a habit of normal smoking and drinking on some occasions. Please give me a small brief about the symptoms of cancer.

First of all there is nothing like normal smoking and drinking. When taken together, the risk is multiplicative rather than additive. Both are known risk factors for cancers of lung, larynx, oral cavity, Esophagus, stomach, liver, bladder to name a few. The symptoms vary according to the site. Lung and larynx Cancer can cause cough, hemoptysis, change of voice Stomach and Esophagus can cause dysphagia and hematemesis. Bladder and kidney can cause hematuria. But most of the symptoms can occur in advanced cases, when chances of cure decrease. Prevention is always better than cure. Lead a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise. Avoid junk food. Avoid alcohol and tobacco. Get screened for the cancers which can be detected earlier. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.

CT scan is better to see for any tumour. DTPA Scan shows the exact function of the kidney. Usually Patients are able to live with single kidney. No evidence of increased risk of cancer in the non functioning kidney. But it can be a risk factor for infection. Feel free to contact me directly if you want to discuss this further.
