My aunt is suffering from breast cancer (stage 3) and her age is 75 years.
Cyto Pathology-FNAC report says, Cytological features are in favour of Ductal Hyperplasia with moderate atypia
FNAc is positive for malignant cells, suggestive of mucinous carcinoma/mixed mucinous and invasive ductal carcinoma (NOS)
Do we need to surgery? Considering her age is the surgery best option for her?
Before planning treatment we should consider her age and General health. If she is fit then for stage 3 there are two ways of treatment. We can go ahead with surgery if operable or we can give chemotherapy first to reduce tumor size and then do the surgery. She will need radiation therapy also for stage 3 disease.
