Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women in India and has overtaken Cancer of the cervix to gain the top spot. It is slowly crawling into almost every household with 150, 000 new cases being diagnosed every year in India.

According to research, many women in India who are detected with breast cancer usually do not have any knowledge about their condition. Moreover, even if they suspect it, they do not feel free to talk about it openly due to the stigma attached to breast cancer and also because of the strong sense of denial. It is not surprising; therefore, that the tumor gets detected in advanced stages, which is drastically affecting the survival rate and treatment options for the patients.

  • Lump in Breasts - One of the most common signs to look for is to check if there is any lump in your breasts. If you find any lump, no matter how small it is, you must consult a doctor and get it checked.

  • Changes in Nipples - An inverted nipple of recent origin or spontaneous nipple discharge from a single duct, either bloody or clear also needs to be reported. If there is persistent itching, scaling and discharge from the nipple and its surrounding, that could also point to an early breast cancer.

  • Skin Changes - If you notice any changes in the skin of the breast, such as dimpling or puckering or thickening of the skin, one must take it seriously.

  • Swelling in the Armpit- Rarely you may feel no lump or any other abnormality in the breast but may feel a lump in the armpit. This should be investigated as it may indicate an enlarged lymph node involved by a quiet tumor in the breast

  • Breast Pain - Pain is rarely the first presenting symptom of breast cancer (5-8%). However, a pain not responding to conventional treatment should be investigated thoroughly and the possibility of cancer ruled out.

The Breast DMG at Max Institute of Cancer Care is committed to not only serve those with the disease but also to create awareness about the early signs and symptoms of breast cancer amongst the general public. It goes without saying that early detection of breast cancer is associated with better outcomes.

The Breast DMG comprises of a galaxy of experts who are able to deliver state of the art diagnostics, treatment and care beyond treatment. There are a constant cross chat between the various specialities at the Breast DMG Tumor Board meeting, that is held once a week to discuss all patients diagnosed with Breast cancer and arrive at the best possible management for the patient. The Surgical Medical and Radiation specialists of the Breast DMG along with the Pathologists, Radiologist and Molecular Oncologists attend these meetings. All patients seen between these meetings are, however, discussed in the common tumor Boards held once a week.

WHAT WE DO

  • The Max Breast DMG is a close- knit unit which accords world-class care by the best specialists in surgery, medical oncology and radiation oncology supported efficiently by a well-equipped Radiology and Nuclear Medicine department along with a proficient, dedicated team of pathologists.
  • An efficient support staff facilitates, all processes aimed at completing the ‘Triple Assessment” effortlessly, be it imaging (Digital mammogram, Ultrasound breast, MR mammogram ) image-guided biopsies, or other investigations.

Surgical Unit

The Surgical Unit of the Breast DMG specializes in the entire array of breast surgeries that are known, including mastectomies (simple, skin-sparing, nipple sparing), breast conservation surgeries with Type 1 and II Oncoplasties, Sentinel lymph node biopsies, axillary dissections, etc. All options are discussed during a preoperative counselling session and the best modality is agreed upon. The Option of inserting a central venous access device is also broached during these discussions, for ease of chemotherapy.

  • Vacuum- assisted biopsies and scarless lumpectomies for benign conditions are also practiced in the unit.
  • Reconstructive surgeries spearheaded by a dedicated Plastic and Reconstructive team offers a wide array of options in the form of implant assisted LD flap reconstruction, subpectoral implants, free flaps like DIEP, S-GAP etc.

Medical Oncology Unit

The Medical Oncology Unit offers expertise in adjuvant chemotherapy and targeted therapy for breast cancers for the treduction in recurrence rates.

Neoadjuvant chemotherapy with or without targeted therapy in appropriately selected cases allows for breast conservation surgery after downsizing the tumor. The medical oncologists keep upgrading their expertise and introduce newer hormonal drugs, targeted therapies and immunotherapies into their treatment arsenal. Advanced stage diseases are dealt with efficiently with the judicious use of palliative chemotherapy and metronomic chemotherapy. This is supplemented by the efforts of a dedicated unit for pain control and palliative care. The presence of a molecular oncologist has not only allowed for detecting inherited cancer syndromes but has also allowed to mutation directed tailor- made treatments. The Unit is also an active participant in ongoing trials to evaluate newer drugs in advanced stage disease.

The Radiation Oncology Unit

  • A dedicated Physiotherapy unit caters to breast cancer patients before surgery and a day after surgery to mobilize the shoulder and perform exercises. Our trained physiotherapists are engaged in educating patients regarding lymphedema ( arm swelling), so that it does not happen and if it does happen, they are able to deal with it effectively by means of manual lymphatic drainage, compression sleeve, bandaging techniques, lymph draining machines etc.
  • An active Breast Support Group, which meets every month, underscores the Breast DMG’s concept of ‘Care beyond Cure’. It is a meeting ground for patients who have completed treatment successfully with those who are undergoing treatment. These interactions go a long way in creating positivity in the minds of those undergoing treatment. Besides the discussion on various aspects of treatment, various other methods of healing are also employed, be it Yoga, Zumba, Dance Movement therapy, Laughter therapy, Mudras and Motivational talks.
