Breast Cancer FAQs 

Here are the frequently asked questions about breast cancer that our patients mostly ask in the OPD.

What is Breast Cancer Screening?

Breast Cancer Screening is a preventive measure to detect cancer at an early stage. This includes a mammogram or a breast MRI. Mammogram is an X-ray of the breast whereas breast MRI takes pictures of the breast with radio waves. A screening procedure can help detect cancer early so that treatment can begin at earliest.

Is Breast cancer curable?
There is no natural or complete cure for breast cancer. We can remove, shrink or stop the growth of cancer cells in the breast with the help of advanced medical treatments. The best treatment of breast cancer is an early diagnosis for which self-examination and regular checkups are required.
What are the causes of breast cancer?
Like other cancer, breast cancer forms when there are some mutations in the cells. However, some risk factors like aging, smoking, family history, etc., can increase the risk of breast cancer in women.
When should I consider screening for breast cancer?
Breast cancer screening is an important factor that helps in early diagnosis and treatment. American Cancer Society recommends optional mammograms at age 40, annual mammograms between age 45 to 54, mammograms every two years for women above 55.
What are the treatment options for breast cancer?
The treatment of breast cancer depends upon various things like age, stage of cancer and its cause. Some treatment options include surgeries like mastectomy and lumpectomy, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, hormone therapy etc. Your doctor will diagnose the cancer stage and choose the best treatment.
Can self-examination help in the early diagnosis of breast cancer?
Yes, self-examinations are beneficial in the early diagnosis of breast cancer. Women can do regular self-examination at home while standing in front of the mirror. You can look for any size changes, feel your breast with fingers to see if there’s any lump, etc. Your doctor will guide you about the detailed self-examination process at home.
