Breast cancer should not incite fear. With improvements in treatment, breast cancer is not only curable in early stages but has become like any other chronic illness in advanced stages! Dr Geeta Kadayaprath, Associate Director and Head, Breast Surgical Oncology, Max Superspeciality Hospital, Patparganj
It was Breast Support group meeting yesterday!Psychological problems during treatment and the coping mechanisms were discussed. Most ladies were of the view that they hated being excluded from all those activities that were their forte before the illness. All that they desired was normalcy or..... Whatever was closest to being normal!

Does cancer give you a new lease of life? 
Today, a patient, Mrs Sharma (name changed), I had treated 2 years back, came for follow up to my clinic with her very beautiful and supportive daughter.When I saw her two years ago, I was taken aback by the fact that an educated lady like her had ignored a lump in the breast completely to let it grow to the size she came to me with. Big it was....ulcerated, infected and bleeding. She had large lymph nodes in her armpit.She was weak and it made me wonder if it was the anemia due to chronic blood loss from the breast cancer or spread of disease to other organs which was contributing to this. I was almost certain she would have spread to other organs. Fortunately for her, her PET CT did not show spread to the other organs.The lady was amazing....she knew she was in big trouble, but she was most cheerful and accepting. She was dealing with a lot in life already....a husband confined to bed for two years prior to her diagnosis and a son who had lost his bearings.I knew then her reason for self neglect. She went through the entire treatment, cheerfully and recovered. She went back to looking after her ill husband till he passed away a few months back. 
Today she surprised me. She looked well.....and I thought a bit relieved.I examined her, went through her reports ....she was absolutely fine. She was her happy self. She dug out a packet from her bag and gave it to me.She said she had made that bag and told me how she had started this NGO to support women in Haryana. They made the bags according to her specifications.... Beautiful bag! She was putting her talent to good use and just talking about it lit up her face.Mrs Sharma had rediscovered herself and will soon embark on fulfilling yet another dream -to paint and hold an exhibition.And then she is off to Canada to meet her friend of 50 years.Wow!!I can only salute her resilience! I want her to know, she really made me proud!!
