Breast cancer treatment differs for every patient and is based on the stage and extent of the disease. The disease has commonly affected females, but recent studies by breastcancerorg have shown the occurrence of breast cancer in men also. Other than sign and symptoms, a patients’ age, general health condition, and spread of cancer tumor in adjacent lymph’s are deciding factors while choosing a treatment for cancer.
For an elusive breast cancer cure, the one that brings recovery, a patient must make an informed decision in choosing cancer treatments. This is done by enquiring about the risks, benefits, success, and post-life of the treatment.
Following are the stages of breast cancer, along with their treatment options:
This is the stage where results of a pathology suggest that a woman is at a risk of breast cancer. Certain parameters like count in HER2 receptors, grade of the cells, the proliferation rate of the cell, and hormone receptors of the cell suggests the presence of abnormal cancer cells in breasts.
Treatments: Surgery, Radiation, Lumpectomy, and Mastectomy.
Stage 1 & Stage 2 (Initial Stages)
In the initial stages, where cancer cells have not spread to other body parts, its best to remove the part or the whole of the organ with cancer. Survival and recovery chances are very high in these stages.
Treatments: Surgery, Radiation, and Targeted therapies. Chemotherapy might be suggested in cases with chances of reoccurrence of breast cancer.
Stage 3 & 4 (Advanced Stages)
In the advanced stages, cancer cells at times spread to other body parts where a patient is first treated to stop cancer tumor growth in the body.
Treatments: Chemotherapy, Hormonal therapy. Combined treatments with Surgery and Radiation.
These are the research trials on cancer cells carried by the government and reputed institutions. A patient can opt for these trails to undergo experimental and advanced trials for breast cancer treatment.
