My mother is a diagnosed case of carcinoma right breast.In my mother breast cancer cell her 2/neu is 3+ as per biopsy report. The consulting doctor is saying that she has to be given herceptin and that is too 17 herceptin will take place each in every 3 week. Pls guide is it mandatory. Whats its pros n cons.

Her -2 neu positive patients will require herceptin / trastuzumab therapy. Her 2 neu 3+ will respond to this therapy. As these kind of cancers have more chances of recurrence (cancer return). This therapy is given to reduce chances of recurrence. Better to take all injections. This targeted therapy is related with seriousness of heart problems. So your doctor will check signs of heart problems before, during and after treatment. Infusion reactions are like chemotherapy drugs. Like lung problems, low white blood cell count etc. This therapy is given along with chemo drugs. And in her 2 neu 3+ patients it is recommended.

Breast Cancer - 8 Warning Signs Your Body Will Give You!

Breast Cancer - 8 Warning Signs Your Body Will Give You!

Breast cancer is the most common forms of cancer in females, affecting one in every eight women in the US. There are huge awareness campaigns, which revolve around ways to recognize if you are prone for it and how to identify the disease in its early stages. Knowing the symptoms can help in early diagnosis and thereby early intervention and better prognosis.

How and why of breast cancer?
The breasts produce milk through the glands, which also contain connective tissue including fat, fibrous tissue, nerves, blood vessels, etc. The milk reaches the exterior through a fine network of ducts. Most cancers develop as small calcifications in these ducts, which continues to grow and spread to distant organs.

Warning signs and symptoms: Given the high incidence of breast cancer, knowing the symptoms helps in early identification. Read on to know more, especially if there is a family history.

  1. Any change in the size, shape, or contour of the breasts
  2. Appearance of a lump in the breasts or the armpits
  3. Presence of a clear or bloody discharge from the breast
  4. The breast or the nipple turning red
  5. Sudden thickening of breast tissue or skin that continues for a while
  6. Change in the feel or look of the skin (dimpling, puckering, scaliness, reddishness, warmth, etc.)
  7. Hardening of the tissue under the breast skin
  8. Difference in appearance or feel of one area in comparison with other areas

The presence of any of these or a combination of these symptoms should be an indication for a detailed checkup. As mentioned, early diagnosis helps in reducing complications and improving prognosis. It is also good to know risk factors, which also indicate if you need to watch for symptoms.

  • Family history: Breast cancer runs in families, and if you have a first-degree relative with breast cancer, watch out for symptoms.
    • Tested positive for BRCA1 and BRCA2
    • Family history of other cancers
  • Age: Women over the age of 50 are at an increased risk of developing breast cancer.
  • Race: Caucasian women carry greater risk than African-American women.
  • Hormones: Increased use of estrogen increases the chances of developing breast cancer. Therefore, women who have used birth control for long time or are on hormone replacement are at greater risk.
  • Abnormal gynecologic milestones: Women who have abnormal menstrual milestones are more predisposed to developing breast cancer. For instance, girls who attain menarche before age of 12, get pregnant after 30, and reach menopause after 55. Women with menstrual irregularities including cycles earlier than 26 days and later than 29 days are also likely to have hormonal issues and are, therefore, at higher risk of breast cancer.
  • Other factors: Smoking, alcohol abuse, and obesity also increase the chances of a woman developing breast cancer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Oncologist.

If mammogram isn't possible, it the Prolactin Serum body test good enough to detect any breast cancer? Also, pls tell me that if someone is having only milkish-waterish nipple stimulation, how much chances are of it being a breast cancer. N what stage it can be?

Milky discharge is not related to cancer. All pathologies in breast are not cancerous. Milky discharge can be related to high prolactin level in the body. That's why doctors will check it. It can be reverted with medicine s. But better to get checked by Breast Surgeon once.

It is true that all lumps in breast are not cancerous. But all lumps in the breast needs to be screened by breast doctor because if you want the confirmation about cancerous and noncancerous lumps, it has to be given by the doctor who screened you for the same. So go and get breast examination done by breast surgeon.

Breast cancer and cervical cancer are the most common cancers in Indian Females. For these cancer screening mammogram, ultrasound of the breast, PAP smear with breast surgeon and gynaec consultation is advisable. So better to go for screening even you don't have any symptoms.

Hi lybrate-user. Chemotherapy definitely has got some side effects because they are strong but beneficial drugs. They will take care of circulating tumor cells and spread of cancer to other parts of body. So don't be against. Talk to your doctor or call us for better understanding.

Hello, I am suffering from Stage 3c locally advanced breast cancer. I have been put on neo adjuvant chemotherapy. That is chemotherapy followed by surgery. I have been told that this will help reduce the size of the tumour and lymph nodes thus helping surgical removal. I have talked to the surgeon and he has said that the tumour is in the middle of the breast and since the operation will remove the complete breast from the base -- it matters little whether the size reduces or not. Also he said that he will have no problem in removing the lymph nodes whether enlarged or reduced. This being the case shouldn't the mastectomy be done immediately? Keeping the tumour in vivo increases the chance of metastasis as every day goes by. Waiting for your reply please help me

Neoadjuvant chemo is given in LABC patients before surgery. Yes it is better tolerated by patient before surgery and it will take care of distant metastasis also. According to the recent studies in LABC patients better to give chemo before operation. As removal of the breast and conservation of breast depends on size of the tumor, stage of the disease and your breast size also. We will do same sitting or postmastectomy reconstruction for these kind of patients. You can do the consultation.

During radiotherapy take adequate amount of water 3-5 Lt. And you can apply aloe vera gel mixed with lemon juice twice in a day on your face.

Chemotherapy are lil harsh drugs. They will kill cancer cells as well as normal cells also. That's the reason you are feeling week. Try to take more water. Continue yoga or exercise according to your doctor. After two or three cycles they will repeat imaging studies in that you will come to know about chemo working or not.
