If breast cancer diagnosed early, the chances of the patient getting better are greatly increased. Today’s blog I’ll discuss about symptoms and treatment of breast cancer.
Why is the chance of breast cancer increasing?
1. First of all, it is responsible for the radical change in our way of life. We eat a lot of fast food nowadays, eat very little green vegetables, do less physical activity – which makes us suffer from excess obesity. Obesity is one of the major causes of breast cancer.
2. Taking the baby late.
3. Reluctance or inability to breastfeed the baby (such as working women suffer more from this problem).
4. Older, the average life expectancy increases, the incidence of this disease is increasing.
5. Early screening means that people are seeking medical attention before they are affected of the disease. As a result, the disease is being diagnosed at an early stage.

Patients may need surgery at any condition of breast cancer. Whether surgery can be done or what type of surgery will be the primary consideration.The decision will be made by the surgeon and the oncologist. Many times only the tumor is removed. Many times the whole Brest is thrown away.
Almost all patients have to take chemotherapy. Chemotherapy options even before or after surgery if the disease has transfused to other parts of the body. Although chemotherapy has some huge side effects, there is no substitute for chemotherapy to heal the patient. The cancer specialist gives right advice considering the physical condition of the patient, the effectiveness of the chemotherapy, the financial condition of the patient etc. Physicians also prescribe chemotherapy to reduce side effects.

Radiotherapy treatment is given to the patients through special type of machine. Its side effects are comparatively much less. Radiotherapy is given immediately after general chemotherapy. Not only in the breast, but also if the cancer has spread to the bones, radiotherapy can be used to prevent bone fractures.
