Early breast cancer does not usually announce its presence with pain. The most common presentation of Breast cancer is a PAINLESS LUMP! Please do not ignore such a lump and see a Breast surgeon to make sure it is nothing sinister!
A young lady of 35 years walked into my clinic with cancer phobia. Her mother had died at the age of 45 from breast cancer. She said, ” My mom was diagnosed in Stage 4 and she never had a lump in the breast. All that was there to see was that her nipple had been pulled in.” I examined her, got an ultrasound of the breast done and she is fine. While a breast lump is the commonest symptom of breast cancer, a nipple pulled in could also be a harbinger of breast cancer. Under the nipple, is hardest to feel for a lump. However, when the nipple sinks in, it may mean that there is this sinister lump sitting beneath it and pulling it towards it. If this has happened recently, you certainly need to visit a Breast Surgeon!
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!
WHO TREATS BREAST CANCER? It is not unusual to see patients visiting their gynecologists/obstetricians with a breast complaint before they are guided to a breast surgeon or specialist.While Germany is one of very few countries where gynecologists deal with breast diseases as well as gynecological diseases, breast diseases are treated by surgeons in India. Breast cancer needs to be detected early to get the best of results and any suspicious lump should be brought to the notice of a breast cancer specialist at the earliest.

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.......
