Many times, breast cancer patients are apprehensive about biopsies....The myth being that biopsies cause spread of cancer. This myth is unfounded. Biopsy is the starting point for any cancer treatment.There is absolutely no cause for worry.

SURGERY FOR BREAST CANCER IS NOT ABOUT REMOVING BREASTS, ALWAYS… ………..And that brings us back to Neena. An MR mammogram was done keeping in view her age and dense breasts. The MR mammogram showed a solitary 2cm lump in upper half of the breast with no significant lymph nodes in the armpit. With this newfound information, I opined that I would offer her breast conservation surgery with oncoplasty (surgical technique to restore shape to the breast) and sentinel lymph node biopsy (few nodes in the armpit sampled guided by radio-isotope and blue dye, sent to pathologist to check for any spread of disease). Her joy knew no bounds and she opted to go ahead with breast conservation surgery. The surgery went off well and fortunately for her, the sentinel node biopsy came back as negative for spread. She did not require all the nodes in the armpit to be removed with its attendant 20% risk of developing arm swelling. Her risk of arm swelling is probably less than 5% now. She was discharged the next day, without any tubes coming out of her body. She was complete in a sense………….and there was really no way to tell she had undergone surgery for breast cancer!

It is kind of frightening when cancer does not fit into the rule book. Painless lump is the usual presentation in breast cancer. So, when a 31 year old walks into your clinic with an exquisitely tender lump and an ultrasound report proclaiming it to be an abscess in evolution, you are tempted to believe it. However the antenna that you nurture carefully with years of experience tells you otherwise..THIS IS JUST NOT RIGHT.....The tender lump, the tender round lymph node. A repeat ultrasound done by my radiologist colleague and a core biopsy confirm my worst fears.. I am dealing with cancer in this unsuspecting young lady. Breaks my heart but I have a job to do!

SURGERY FOR BREAST CANCER IS NOT ABOUT REMOVING BREASTS, ALWAYS… When 32 year old Neena, an HR consultant in an MNC, walked into my clinic, accompanied by her husband and parents, I could sense an air of hopelessness surrounding this good looking young lady. The papers that were laid in front of me carried a needle biopsy report, which confirmed the diagnosis of breast cancer. Fortunately, for her, the size of the lump was about 2cms and there were no lymph nodes that I could feel in the armpit. There was no evidence of spread to the other organs on imaging. I soon realized she had been through the discussion of surgery and she had come to me for a second opinion. I soon found out why she had decided to come for a second opinion. She had been advised a modified radical mastectomy (complete removal of the breast along with the lymph nodes in the armpit). She was a successful career woman with everything going for her till yesterday and today she was grappling with this tough predicament- losing an organ, an integral part of her feminity to cancer- it was almost cruel!.......... ....To be continued.....watch this space for more.......
