Breast Lumps: Treatment, Procedure, Cost and Side Effects

What is the treatment?

The term breast lumps refers to any bulges or growths in the breast tissues. There are many different types of lumps that can form in or on your breasts and depending on the type, they may feel like a hardened mass, a localized swelling, or a sense of fullness in your breasts. Since all of these lumps mean different things, their treatment varies. It is important to note that all breast lumps do not necessarily mean that you have breast cancer, and it’s vital not to panic. Have your doctor look at them immediately so that you can begin treatment.

There are various treatment options for breast lumps and they all depend on why the lump has formed in the first place. If you are currently breast feeding, your lump may be the result of mastitis, which is an infection that occurs in the breast in lactating women. If this is the case, your treatment will consist of antibiotics. If your lump is caused due to an injury or trauma to the breasts, then a combination of pain relievers and ointments to soothe the tissue will be used to treat you. Some breast lumps are essential cysts or lipomas (which are doughy masses that are harmless). In this case, the treatment is optional as they do not harm you or impact your health. You can have them removed through surgery or leave them as is.

Breast lumps can also be a sign of cancer. In this case, the treatment will involve removing the lump or breasts entirely, chemotherapy, radiation, and surgeries, depending on how far the cancer has progressed.

How is the treatment done?

Once you notice or feel a lump in your breast, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Your doctor will begin by performing a physical exam of your breasts to gauge the size and hardness of the lumps, how much pain you are in, and any other reactions your breasts may be having. In order to gain a deeper understanding, the doctor will also order a mammogram test and an ultrasound so that any problems with the tissues can be spotted. In some cases, a chest MRI may also be required for the diagnosis. Once the reason for the lumps is diagnosed, the treatment can begin.

If the breast lumps are a result of an infection, you will be put on a course of antibiotics until the infection clears and the lump goes away. Breast infections are commonly, especially in women who are lactating or are pregnant. In case of an injury, the main line of treatment will be to heal the damaged tissue in your breasts. Ointments that penetrate the skin deeply and work on muscular injuries will be prescribed, along with pain relievers, if necessary. More of than not, these will be over the counter medications, unless your doctor prescribes something with steroids.

Benign cysts and growths can be removed with the help of surgery. Since they are not harmful, their removal is generally an aesthetic or cosmetic procedure and not really a health care one. Sometimes, these surgeries can be performed under local anaesthesia if the growth can be removed quickly.

Unfortunately, breast lumps can also be indicative of breast cancer. Here, the treatment involves chemotherapy and radiation, and maybe even a mastectomy if needed. It depends mostly on how far the cancer has grown.

Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)

The minute you feel a mass or lump in your breast, it is important to get a check up to confirm if everything is alright.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

If you are suffering from an underlying condition that is causing you breast pain and lumps, it is important to treat that condition and not just the lump itself. In this case, you are not eligible for the treatment of breast lumps.

Are there any side effects?

Chemotherapy can lead to the loss of hair, nausea, weight loss, weakness, fatigue, and problems with concentration. The treatment can make you extremely weak before you get better.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

There are no specific post treatment guidelines.

How long does it take to recover?

The recovery period depends on the reason behind the lumps occurring. Infections can be cleared within a few days. It can take a minimum of 2 weeks to fully recover from the effects of any surgery on your breasts to help remove cysts or growths. Cancer can take months and years to go into remission and can come back any time.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

Chemotherapy can cost up to Rs 57,000 – Rs 60,000 per session.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

Cancer can go into remission but can also come back at any time.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

There are no alternatives to the treatment.

Noticed Lumps In Your Breasts - What To Do And How To Deal With It?

Breast lumps need not always be cancerous. When malignant, cancer must be treated at the earliest, and the treatment depends on the stage of cancer. When benign, though not harmful, the lumps must be investigated thoroughly and treated if necessary.

Non-cancerous breast lumps that are common among young women between the ages of 15-30 years are called Fibroadenoma. The lump may arise in an area of the breast which ialready feels tender or has regular hormonal Breast pain, which may leave the impression that the lump is causing the pain.

Fibroadenomas are usually painless. Fibroadenomas do not disappear because they are solid lumps. Although they may undergo noticeable changes during pregnancy that may result in their disappearance or progressive enlargement.

Types of breast lump or mass in the breast

There are two types of breast lumps, and they are:

  1. Benign (Non-cancerous) breast lumps
  2. Malignant (Cancerous)

The majority of the breast lumps are benign (non-cancerous), however, they do require proper evaluation. Fibroadenoma or other benign lumps in the breasts can be cured by fibroadenoma enucleation.

Fibroadenomas are usually harmless but should be checked and investigated through ultrasound and needle biopsy. If the lump is shown to be a fibroadenoma for sure, it is advised to live under strict supervision. If the lump does not disappear, then surgery is the next likely step.

The Procedure
Fibroadenoma is removed by a small periareolar incision. These lumps are treated by general surgeons in traditional ways which are through direct incisions on the breast lump. This may leave behind undesirable, ugly scars on an intimately important part of the body. Although there are other techniques to treat fibroadenoma, that leaves almost no scarring on Breast, for which better to consult a plastic surgeon.

  1. The surgery can be performed under local or general anaesthesia.
  2. Depending on the size and number of lumps, the procedure could take ½ hour to 2 hours.
  3. The lumps are removed through a fine semi-circular incision. The marks are barely visible once they have healed and often fade away with time. Multiple lumps can be removed through a single incision.

Recovery
Patients can go home the same day of the surgery, as the recovery period is quite short. A little discomfort might be felt for the first one or two days. 

Expected Results
The breasts should remain firm for many years untill she gets pregnant or any weight abnormalities.

Breast Cancer - Preventive Measures That Can Help!

Breast Cancer is cancer that develops in the cells of the breasts. In the United States, breast cancer happens to be the second most common cancer diagnosed in women. General signs and symptoms of breast cancer include, a lump in the breast, noticeable change in breast shape, liquid oozing out from the nipple, there might be a newly inverted nipple or a red patch of skin. Before going into the treatment and most importantly see how can this be prevented from affecting women, we will look closely into the causes, which lead to breast cancer.

Prevention of breast cancer
Doctors do not guarantee that breast cancer can be prevented. Still, women can be cautious and through reviewing the risk factors, that lead to development of cancerous cells or increase the chances of them getting affected, can go a long way in minimizing the risk.

Some of the preventive measures are:

  • Keeping a good body weight is a must. Being overweight increases the risk of breast cancer.
  • Risk of breast cancer can be reduced through medicines like tamoxifen and raloxifene. Both these medicines block the effects of estrogen on breast tissue.
  • Aromase inhibitors, as medications, can be used to prevent the production of small amounts of estrogen, which are usually produced in women during post menopause period.
  • Group of patients, who have a very high risk of breast cancer, removal of breasts through surgery is an options which doctors consider to prevent this from happening.
  • Having healthy diet is a must. Taking more of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts is desirable if you want to keep yourself away from this dreaded disease.

Surgical Treatment For Pain And Lumps In Breasts Of Women!

Surgical Treatment For Pain And Lumps In Breasts Of Women!

The incidence of pain and lumps in the breast is on the rise. Breast cancer has grown in incidence over the years. More women are getting diagnosed with it, and the age at which they are being diagnosed has reduced too. Therefore, preventative checks and screenings have gone up significantly. The number of women diagnosed with small lumps has gone up drastically. The good thing is that since these are diagnosed in the early stages, the treatment is simpler and the prognosis far better than women who get diagnosed much later in life.

In a majority of cases, once a lump is identified the most preferred treatment is removal. This is known as lumpectomy. However, before a final decision is made to remove the lump, there are certain tests that are run by the doctor to confirm the diagnosis and extent of spread.

  1. A thorough breast exam to identify if this is an isolated lump or if there are more lumps in either breast. The exact shape and size of the lump also need to be identified so that treatment can be planned accordingly.
  2. Imaging to see if the lymph nodes have been involved. In most cases, there could be spread to the lymph nodes in the armpits which also need to be removed if required. If the lump is too big or too many in number, then a mastectomy may be required instead of a lumpectomy. This requires removal of the entire breast tissue on one or both sides (rarely) along with involved lymph nodes.

Pre-surgery: Once the diagnosis is confirmed, then the doctor will plan treatment. Prior to the surgery,

  • Talk to your doctor about your other medical conditions and medications and allergies, if any
  • Gynecologic history is very important to be discussed in detail
  • Blood thinners have to be stopped prior to the surgery
  • Post-surgery care needs to be planned, including a caretaker for a few days and postop care

During surgery:

  • Lumpectomy or mastectomy is often done under general anaesthesia
  • This requires hospitalization and carries the risks associated with anaesthesia
  • The outlined breast tissue or complete breast and surrounding lymph nodes will be removed. The area will be closed using sutures and bandaged

Post-surgery:

  • The wound needs to heal, and so postop care is very important
  • For the first few days, painkillers and antibiotics are used to control pain and infection
  • As a follow-up, some women may require radiation therapy to contain the suspicious tissue that may be left behind after lumpectomy
  • If extensive breast tissue was removed, some women may prefer to have reconstructive surgery done
  • Remember that lumpectomy is not a definitive procedure, and there could be cases that require a repeat operation

Advantages:

  1. Less invasive compared to a mastectomy
  2. The appearance of the breast is minimally affected, and symmetry is maintained

Disadvantages:

  1. May not ensure complete removal
  2. May require additional radiation therapy
  3. May require repeat surgery

Common Breast Disease - How To Screen Them?

Common Breast Disease - How To Screen Them?

Breast pain, lumps in the breast or discharge from the nipples are some of the more common complaints seen in women. Also, it is generally observed that such women are between the ages of 40-69. While most of these cases are benign, the diagnosis or the problem should be deciphered only after a detailed analysis of the case, symptoms, and history of breast cancer if any.

  1. Breast Pain: Breast pain can arise from a condition called mastitis. It is generally seen in new mothers where the bacteria can enter the milk ducts through the cracks in the nipple causing an infection in the tissue. These infections can also be caused in menopausal women as well, it is more commonly seen in young mothers.
  2. Lumps in Breast: Breast tissue changes constantly during a woman’s lifetime and the changing hormone levels during a menstrual cycle can also cause such benign lumps. Benign lumps move as you press against them and can usually be seen in both breasts.
  3. Nipple Discharge: While most nipple discharges arise as a result of a benign condition, it will need to be investigated further to understand whether it due to an abscess, an injury, birth-control pills, pregnancy/childbirth or hormonal changes.

Screening:

  1. Breast Exams: The doctor will typically examine the patient’s armpits and breast in various angles for irregularities in shape, inward-turned nipples or lumps. The armpits are checked for enlarged lymph nodes as well.
  2. Mammography: This form of testing which involves x-rays of both the breasts is more effective in older women when the fat tissue is generally a lot more. In such cases, it is easier to identify other tissues from the fat tissue.
  3. Sonography: Where an abnormality is discovered in a mammography, the sonography helps to clarify things further. A lump which is filled with liquid are rarely cancerous and this can be done through a sonography.

Risk Factors:

Most women are still not aware about the factors that can put you at risk when it comes to breast cancer. Compiled below are some points that can help understand the same and what can be done to lower the risk:

  1. Age: While it is possible for any woman to get fibrocystic breast disease, women between 30 and 50 are more susceptible to such conditions thanks to the hormonal changes during this time.
  2. Family history: If anyone in your family has been diagnosed with breast cancer then automatically your risk increases. Also, if the person diagnosed is in first relation then the risk factor doubles and in case there are two people in first relation who have been diagnosed then the risk factor increases by 5 times. It is also sometimes linked to faulty gene such as BRCA1 and BRCA2. 
  3. Exposure to radiation: In case you have undergone a treatment and were exposed to the any type of radiation near the chest area for any type of medical treatment then your risk of acquiring breast cancer increases. The younger you were at the time of radiation exposure higher is the risk. 
  4. Obesity: Women who have a BMI over 25 are more at risk of developing breast cancer than others. Further, obesity also increases the risk of recurrent breast cancer. 
  5. Pregnancy & breastfeeding:  Women who conceive after 30 years of age are more at risk of acquiring breast cancer, as breast growth cells are immature and active before a full term pregnancy and mature only after it and regulates them. Further, not breastfeeding your baby for 1 complete year can increase your risk of cancer. 
  6. Alcohol: Alcohol has the tendency to damage the DNA in cells and  increase levels of estrogen and other hormones associated with hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer. Women who drink alcohol 3 drinks a week have 15% more risk of developing breast cancer, which further increases by 10% if you consume it regularly.

Benign & Malignant Breast Tumors - Things You Must Be Aware Of!

Benign & Malignant Breast Tumors - Things You Must Be Aware Of!

The presence of a lump or a tumor in the breast is not always indicative of breast cancer. In some instances, the breast tumor can be benign or noncancerous as well. Thus, to understand breast cancer better, one should know the difference between a benign and malignant breast tumor. In this article, we will discuss the factors that differentiate a benign breast tumor from a malignant one.

Breast Fibroadenomas

  1. Breast Fibroadenomas are benign breast tumors that often affect women in their early 20s and 30s (can also affect women of other age groups). Research suggests that in spite of being benign and noncancerous, breast fibroadenomas make a woman more susceptible to breast cancer in the future.
  2. It may be difficult to decipher the underlying factor that triggers fibroadenomas. However, increased use of birth control pills (that results in an elevated estrogen level) can be a contributing factor.
  3. Thus, in spite of no discomfort, it is safe to get fibroadenomas removed by lumpectomy or by radiation therapy. There are also instances when fibroadenomas dissolved on their own.
  4. Sometimes, the lobules of the breast can undergo enlargement resulting in the formation of lumps (can be a tumor or a cyst) that are non-cancerous in nature. Such tumors are known as Adenosis.
  5. The benign tumor growth can also develop in the milk ducts of the nipples, a condition known as Intraductal papillomas (characterized by discharge from the nipples).
  6. To stay safe and lower the risk of breast cancer, doctors often recommend the removal of the tumor.

Differences between Benign and Malignant Breast Tumors

  1. One of the major factors resulting in a tumor is the abnormal growth of cells that could be triggered by an injury, an infection or prolonged inflammation.
  2. A factor that plays a pivotal role in differentiating malignant from benign breast lumps or tumors is its ability to metastasize or invade other organs, cells and tissues of the body.
  3. A malignant tumor starts off as a primary tumor that remains confined within its point of origin. Gradually, the cancerous growth metastasize, invading other neighboring as well as distant cells and body organs (Secondary cancer or tumor).
  4. Benign tumors, on the other hand, contains chemical adhesions that prevent their metastasis and invasion to the other vital organs in the body.
  5. As compared to malignant tumors, benign breast tumors, once removed, do not recur.
  6. On the cellular level, microscopic examination reveals that malignant breast tumors often contain unusual, mutated, and modified genes and chromosomes.
  7. More than often, malignant breast tumors give rise to Paraneoplastic Syndrome. The Paraneoplastic Syndrome is characterized by an elevated production of substances (can be antibodies or hormones) by the cancerous growths or tumors. The hormones or the antibodies circulate in the bloodstream and can alter the functioning of a host of vital body tissues and organs with deleterious health consequences.

Such things seldom take place in the case of benign breast tumors. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Conversion of Fibroadenoma into cancer is very rare chances are 0.02- 0.1%. · Watch and wait is one approach. Fibroadenomas are not always troublesome and sometimes shrink on their own, just keeping an eye on their progress is the least invasive way to handle them. Lumpectomy, or surgical removal of a fibroadenoma, can be done if you're worried about keeping it in your breast.

Symptoms, causes and treatment for Breast Cancer Patients

Hello friends. My name is Dr. Gayatri Juneja. I m a practicing gynecologist in Model Town for the last 20 years. I m a visiting consultant in Apollo Cradle Hospital Moti Nagar, and Fortis Hospital Shalimar Bagh, and Sunder Lal Hospital Ashok Nagar. It s a great pleasure for me to talk to you about certain problems which I think is becoming very important for all of us to know. I am going to talk about Breast Cancer.

Unfortunately, even in India, cancer breast is becoming very common. And it is not that it is a cancer which we cannot pick up at time. The only thing we need is to be aware of it. Only if we know what is happening with our body, is only then we can do what is normal, only then we can see what is not normal, right? It is one of the breast cancer is one of the easiest cancers to pick up. How? My body is my own. I should know what s happening to me. So minimum a lady can do is do a self examination. Teach your daughters how to do a self examination for the breast. If you find any lump, any time, if you feel there is some pain, which was not there, if you see the nipple is not in the normal position, it is retracted inside, if you see there is skin changes on your breast, if you see any size difference. See minor size difference will be there. That is a natural thing. But if you see there is drastic change, and if you are not comfortable with something, do not neglect it. It s not at all a normal thing. Go, see a gynaecologist.

It is a confidential thing between you and your doctor. Let her examine you. Let her guide you. You give her a proper history, if you have taken any contraceptive pills, even I-pill is very dangerous. I ll come to it later how. The thing is your doctor has examined you, then she will guide you what has to be done. There are various ways of diagnosing cancer of breast. First step is, you do a self examination. First step is over. You find the lump, you go to a doctor. Your doctor will ask for a sonography, that is ultrasound of the breast. And another part of it is an x-ray of the breast. Sometimes in younger age group the breast is very dense, and you cannot diagnose anything on mammogram.

You still are suspecting something, then your doctor might ask for an MRI. MRI is very effective in diagnosing, but we do not suggest it as first line treatment, first line of diagnosis. Once it is confirmed that yes, there is a lump, then what we do is, we ask for a biopsy. Now biopsy can be in 2 forms. It can be taken through the needle, which we call FNAC Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology, and other is open biopsy, where we remove the whole lump, and send it for testing. If the test comes negative, good, fine, everything is fine. If it comes positive, then further treatment depends upon the type. Then they will do a special CT scan for you, where the will diagnose if any lymph nodes are involved.

Depending on preliminary staging, your doctor will ask for a surgery. Now the surgery will it is better that the whole breast gets removed. Or what has to be done will be diagnosed, because it is not a single person specialty, it is going to be a multi-specialty treatment then. Now let s come down to who are the people who are at higher risk. Why should I consider that I am at higher risk? What who are those people? First, specially after menopause, obesity. If your lifestyle is not at all healthy, your food habits you eat lot of non-veg and processed food, like pizzas and burgers and frozen food, yes you are at risk. Then comes genetics.

If you have a family history of cancer in your nani, dadi, your bua, maasi, cousin, ya sister ya brother, or even cancer of ovaries, you are at high risk. But that doesn t mean who all have had the history of cancer will also develop this. You are at higher risk, but it is better only to be careful. Then comes very tall ladies it has been seen they are also prone for diabetes. Obesity, and people who have had hormonal replacement therapy with and once you re diagnosed don t get scared. It is a curable cancer, and life expectancy with variable modalities these days is quite good.The quality of life is also good.

So my suggestion would be, to conclude, that please be aware of what is happening with you, and take good care of yourself. If you are healthy, only then you can look after your family. Thank you so much.

Breast Surgery
Hello friends, I am Dr. Anubhav Gupta. I am a consultant of plastic and cosmetic surgeon. Today I am going to talk about breast surgery.

Breast surgery is a fast growing field, and a sub speciality of plastic and cosmetic surgery. Basically, breast surgery is a field that involves any surgery related to the breast, whether it is male or female. And basically, we can broadly divide breast surgery into two broad compartments.

Aesthetic or cosmetic breast surgery
Reconstructive breast surgery.
Reconstructive surgery is basically involving swelling, lumps in the breasts, then post-cancer, when the breast is removed in the cancer, and then the reconstruction, making the breast new, a new breast in a post cancer patient. These all come under reconstructive breast surgery.

But the field which is fast growing these days, is the Cosmetic breast surgery. In the cosmetic breast surgery, there are many surgeries.

In females, there is:

Breast lift
Breast augmentation. Augmentation means enhancing.
Breast reduction
These are the common surgeries. And in male, gynaecomastia surgery is coming up, and it is becoming more demanding these days. Males, young boys between 20 to 30 years are now the bigger number of patients coming to us and operating now, has increased manifolds in the past couple of years. Because people are now more aware. Now we have techniques which give very good aesthetic results. So this is about aesthetic breast surgery. And among this, one type of breast surgery, which is augmentation mammoplasty or enhancement is becoming very popular.

Females with small sized breasts come to us and we enhance the breasts by two basic techniques:

One is by implants
The other is by fat grafting
In case of fat grafting, we take the fat of the patient itself, like, we take it from parts which are more bulgy like their abdomen or the buttocks and then we put it in the breast to enhance them. So that is also a popular surgery which is being done.

Then there is breast reduction. In many females, rather young females, there is an abnormally large growth of breasts tissue leading to embarrassment of these patients, pain in the neck and back, and they come to us for correction. So this is also possible now by the technique called breast reduction.

To conclude, breast surgery has now become a very safe and predictable surgery, with a reasonable good outcome.

And to know more about it, and to contact me, you can get in touch with me on Lybrate. Thank You.
