Breast Cancer Questions

My mother is diagnosed with localized carcinoma breast last week. Some of the doctors are saying it is better to do first surgery and then go for the chemotherapy and on the other hand others are saying first chemo and then surgery. Now we are on a dilemma which would be a better option. Can any one help us out!

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Most women with breast cancer have some type of surgery. Common types of breast surgery are lumpectomy, mastectomy, and taking out lymph nodes from the underarm. Women who have a mastectomy may also decide to have the breast shape rebuilt, either at the same time or later on. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. In hopes of avoiding future disease, some women at very high risk of developing breast cancer elect to have both breasts surgically removed, a procedure called bilateral prophylactic mastectomy or preventive mastectomy. The surgery aims to remove all breast tissue that potentially could develop breast cancer. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.

My mom died of breast cancer and what are the chances for me getting cancer. My mother age is 46 and my age is 24. I have some breast tenderness and pain before my periods. So what are the chances.

Dear lybrate-user first of all pl accept my condolences for your mom's demise. I can understand how hard it is for you without your mom. As per your query goes women with close relatives who've been diagnosed with breast cancer have a higher risk of developing the disease. If you've had one first-degree female relative (sister, mother, daughter) diagnosed with breast cancer, your risk is doubled. This is as per one report from uk. This should not give you stress as there is a risk associated. If you are careful and vigilant it will be not affecting you at all. Having breast tenderness and discomfort is common during periods. Nothing to worry about. If the same is bothering you too much, pl consult a gynaecologist who will do beast examination and help you to assist further. Have a nice day.

I am 20 years old female and I am seeing blood on my right breast. What should I do? Is it a sign of cancer or something else?

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Blood coming from the nipple can be symptomatic of benign (noncancerous) breast disorders such as breast tissue infection or a growth in the milk ducts. Bloody nipple discharge also can be a sign of breast cancer. Women who are breastfeeding may experience cracked nipples that can produce blood.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. A lump or mass in the breast is the most common symptom of breast cancer. Lumps are often hard and painless, although some are painful. However, not all lumps are cancer. Benign breast conditions (like cysts) that can also cause lumps.

I am 40 years .doctor advised for mirena insertion .is there a link between mirena and breast cancer?

MD-Radiation Oncology, MBBS
Oncologist, Greater Noida
Hello. Mirena is a hormonal (progestin) iud. Some breast cancers are hormone sensitive and hence mirena is not advised for patients suffering from or at risk of developing breast cancer. However, there is no definite evidence at present that mirena increases the risk of breast cancers, although it is suggested to decrease risk of endometrial cancer. If you are still concerned, you may opt for a non-hormonal iud. Pls discuss with your doctor regarding differences in efficacy of the two. Thanks.

Hi, lybrate-user, irregular life style, alcoholism,consumption of junk food, polluted atmosphere, lack of oxygen might cause breast cancer. Obesity, having never been pregnant, inherited genes can't be overruled being cause of breast cancer. Go for meditation to reduce your stress inhaling plenty of oxygen to disolve glands and subcutaneous nodules of your body. Tk, care.
