Decisions about surgery depend on many factors. You and your doctor will determine the kind of surgery that’s most appropriate for you based on the stage of the cancer, the "personality" of the cancer, and what is acceptable to you in terms of your long-term peace of mind.

I was brought up in a middle class Malayalee family, extremely open minded about education ( like all Malayalees) but as close minded about display of any form of affection. I used to envy my north Indian friends when their parents would hug and kiss them, completely oblivious to being watched. It came naturally to them. By just watching this momentary expression of affection, I used to be suffused by an inexplicable feeling of warmth and also experience a certain positivity percolating into the environment. This seemingly innocuous expression of many positive emotions... love, kindness, a blessing, a prayer, gratitude, healing... came to be extolled as ‘Jaadoo ki Jhappi’ in Munnabhai MBBS. While I always believed in the magic of Jaadoo ki jhappi, it is my patients whose firm belief in its power to heal, that made my belief stronger. I don’t know when, but it has come to be a usual occurrence for my patients to walk up to me and almost ‘demand’ their Jaadoo ki jhappi. The awkwardness of my childhood has given way to the concerted belief that it does good to both the giver and the recipient. And that brings me to my dear Champion, Mrs C who spends time between Australia and India. She is having her regular checks post breast cancer treatment in Australia.She was here last week and waited for a couple of hours in the Outpatients for her Jaadoo ki Jhappi.And I was only too happy to oblige. If she believed it was healing for her, it was for me too! Isn’t it true, the more you give, the more you get?

WOMEN SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO MAKE THEIR CHOICES.............. I see a lot of lady patients in my practice since I deal with breast cancer and other breast related conditions all the time. What has struck me as the rule rather than the exception, is that, women don't have a complete say in matters dealing with not just their breasts but their life.....whether she should keep her breast or sacrifice it, whether she should go for chemotherapy or not, how much should she be told about the disease etc. etc.The people involved in these crucial decisions involve men ranging from a husband to the father-in-law to a second degree male relative or sometimes even an 'educated' male neighbor. Women empowerment is the only answer....her issues are her own, her body, mind and intellect are all her own.Only she must be allowed the right to decide what is good for her, with gentle gestures of support from her immediate family.

SURGERY FOR BREAST CANCER IS NOT ABOUT REMOVING BREASTS, ALWAYS… While all this continued as the standard of care for the first 65 years of the 20th century, some smart minds in the medical field started questioning the necessity of performing such radical surgeries to get optimum results. Trials got underway to compare mastectomy versus breast conservation surgery in the 1970s. A pathologist turned surgeon, Dr Umberto Veronesi, pioneered the most convincing trial in Milan. He was able to show that breast conservation surgery (removal of the lump with a surrounding 1 cm margin of normal breast tissue) followed by radiation therapy to the rest of the breast in properly selected patients yielded the same results as a complete removal of the breast. I am quite convinced that it is the pathologist in this surgeon who urged him to go for this trial. He had probably seen while looking at the breast as a pathologist that far too much was being done to address small cancers in the breast. Finally, women with breast cancer had a choice….
