Oncologist, Pune
Very rare, 1 in 1000. A common symptom is a lump and should be checked out by a breast specialist, and if breast cancer happens treatment is the same as it is for women.

My grandmother is suffering from breast cancer stage 4 ,only one of the breast is growing up and the other is normal, are there any chances for the tumour to burst up what should we do, surgical procedure may not be a good option as the metastasis occurred and she have pain in her right pelvic girdle so could you please suggest something, can surgical removal of breast help her?

MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, MS - General Surgery
Oncologist, Pune
When the cancer has spread, the only role of surgery is to avoid the symptoms you are talking about. If the tumor is very, large, painful, about to burst then one may consider surgery but before that one should find out if some systemic treatment (Injections or oral drugs) can be given to reduce the symptoms. If she is very old and has a type of tumor which is known as Hormone positive than she can be treated only one tablet a day.

I am a woman of 24 ,I recently got married, I have painful breast lumps (Benign fibrous growth, in both breast, and vit D Deficiency level 21, my in-laws are unaware of that, they are enforcing me for a baby, I am taking Homeopathy medicine, but according to my doctor it may take time at least 2 year, I wanted to be cured totally as soon as possible, will it possible anyhow? Will I be able to bear a healthy baby , or I will not totally cured? USG and mammogram done, nothing serious, please suggest me doctor, what to do, how to be cured soon?

Benign Breast lumps in both breasts need no treatment, they are benign, many times they don;'t even grow & you can ignore them. Get them checked once a year and if one of them grows very large may need a small surgery to remove, however if they remain small & are painful then no need to get anything right now. You may go ahead with your pregnancy. These lumps never become cancerous so don't worry. I would suggest no need to hide from anyone.

Hi Sir, Having fenugreek powder in water daily two spoon after breakfast. Will it cause breast cancer? I can use it please reply. One of my friend told me that it will cause you cancer.

MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, MS - General Surgery
Oncologist, Pune
Fenugreek powder is consumed by diabetic patients to control their sugar. It has no relation with breast cancer. To detect breast cancer, perform self breast examination, follow proper steps. Please undergo Mammography/Ultrasound to detect breast lumps.

Breast Cancer - Commonly Asked Questions You Must Be Aware Of!

Breast Cancer is one of the most common types of cancer among women. In US, it is the second most common cancer to affect women, the first one being skin cancer. The disease has been such a dreadful one that the first thing which crops up on the minds of those diagnosed with the same, is whether they would survive. Nowadays, medical science has made such rapid progress in diagnosing the disease and then coming up with various treatment options, that ones who are diagnosed with cancer have high chances of survival as compared to those, who had to bear the brunt of the dreaded disease and lose their battles due to lack of advanced medical treatment.

Now, we take a look at some of the most frequently asked questions on breast cancer:
1. Which age group of women is most likely to get breast cancer?
Breast Cancer most often occurs in women who are above 40 years and risk tends to increase with age. There are certain risk factors, some of which can be controlled, which are related to lifestyle, environment, diet, while some factors cannot be controlled, top of which is age.

2. What are the signs and symptoms?
Outward signs of breast cancer are very rare. In case any outward sign does occur, the most probable ones include a lump, area around the nipple having a thickened feeling or skin around the nipple having rashes. Still, even if you come across these signs, they don’t always necessarily mean you have breast cancer, so it is always advisable to consult a doctor as and when you come across these signs.

3. Can breast cancer be prevented?
Unfortunately there is no sure way to prevent breast cancer but precautions on the part of women can definitely reduce the risk of getting engulfed by the disease. Lifestyle and environmental factors play huge role in influencing cancerous cells within a person’s body. So, maintaining healthy lifestyle and staying away from alcohol and fatty, spicy foods would go a long way in ensuring that you do not invite the risk of cancer.

4. How often should I do a breast self exam?
Breast Self Exam should be done at least once a month. You can look for any changes in the tissue, changes related to size, shape or a feeling of lump, inversion of nipple, reddish tinge on the breast skin.

5. Is breast cancer inherited?
All kinds of cancers involved changes in a person’s genes. If a woman’s mother, sister or daughter had suffered from cancer, then there is always a chance that the woman would also suffer from the same.

6. Is there a link between oral contraceptives and breast cancer?
Use of birth control pills for more than five years lead to an increased risk of breast cancer, though due to the low amount of hormones in pills nowadays, the risk is comparatively small.

7. What is preventive mastectomy?
Preventive Mastectomy refers to the removal of one or both breasts so that risk of getting breast cancer is reduced. Women who are at a high risk of breast cancer go for this option.

Breast Cancer - Treatment Procedures At Different Stages!

Breast Cancer - Treatment Procedures At Different Stages!

Breast Cancer can be detected at various stages. Some women might feel a difference in their breast area, with a lump or kind of a skin rash around the nipple or they could see that their nipple has become inverted, so then the treatment procedures would be different. The different stages of cancer and their respective treatment procedures are discussed below:

Stage I Breast Cancer - Treatment
In this case, breast cancers are at their nascent stage, either they have not spread to the lymph nodes or might have spread to only a small area. Treatment options are as follows:

  • Surgery: The main treatment for breast cancer in stage I is surgery. These types of cancers get treatment with either breast-conserving surgery or mastectomy. There are some cases when breast reconstruction can also be done along with the surgery to get rid of cancer.
  • Radiation therapy: When doctors feel the need to do a breast construction surgery, then radiation therapy is normally given after surgery. This helps in lowering the chance of cancer getting relapsed. Older women, aged close to 70 years, should go for breast reconstruction surgery without radiation therapy, provided the following conditions are true:
    • The lump was 2cm or less across and it has been completely removed.
    • None of the lymph nodes removed contained cancer.
    • The cancer is either ER or PR-positive and hormone therapy is conducted.
  • Chemotherapy and other drugs: Women who have either ER or PR-positive hormone receptor, doctors would recommend them to go for hormone therapy. The therapy is given for 5 years. In case the tumor is larger than 1cm across, adjuvant chemotherapy is recommended.

Stage II Breast Cancer-Treatment
This is the stage when cancer has spread to some nearby lymph nodes. The treatment methods followed are:

  • Surgery and radiation therapy: This second stage of cancer gets treated with breast-conserving surgery or mastectomy. The lymph nodes nearby get checked either with a sentinel lymph node biopsy or an axillary lymph node dissection. Women, on whom BCS have been conducted, get treated with radiation therapy after surgery.
  • Neoadjuvant and adjuvant systemic therapy: This is another method followed for treating stage II cancer. It is a good option for women with large tumors as they shrink the tumor before conducting surgery. Chemotherapy, HER2 targeted drugs and Hormone therapy all form part of treatment in this stage II.

Stage III Breast Cancer – Treatment
In stage III breast cancer, the size of a tumor is more than 5 cm, with cancer spreading on to the nearby lymph nodes. The treatment procedures followed are:

  • Neoadjuvant therapy: Generally the stage III cancers are treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Radiation therapy is also given after surgery, followed by breast reconstruction surgery.
  • Starting off with surgery: Another treatment option for this stage is to get started off with surgery. The tumors are quite large and they even grow on to nearby tissues, which means women need to get a mastectomy. Women having large breasts can even go for Breast Reconstruction Surgery, in case cancer has not spread on to the nearby tissues.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
