Breast Cancer Treatment in India


Breast cancer is a type of cancer originating from the breast tissues. Both men and women can be afflicted by it though it’s rarer in men. Along with cervical cancer it’s one of the most common types of cancer that afflicts women. One of the major issues with breast cancer is that it is often not detected soon enough. This is due to low awareness about the disease. Detecting it early can significantly reduce the death risk.


•         Causes
•         Symptoms
•         Diagnosis
•         Treatment
•         Prevention


Inactive lifestyle, stress, unhealthy food, irregular sleeping hours, etc. are some of the things that can lead to breast cancer. While being a woman itself puts you at a greater risk for breast cancer, here are some factors that further increase the risk.

•         Age
•         Family history
•         Early menstruation
•         Late menopause
•         Breast tissue composition
•         Delayed pregnancy or no pregnancy
•         Breastfeeding
•         Exposure to radiation
•         Obesity
•         Smoking
•         Using birth control pills
•         Hormone replacement therapy


Some common symptoms of breast cancer are:

1. A hard ‘lump’ or a ‘knot’ in the breast. Usually, these lumps are painless.
2. Occasionally, a clear cut lump cannot be felt, but a ‘lumpish’ feel is there. And this feel is different as compared to the same area of the opposite breast.
3. Bloody or a blood stained nipple discharge
4. A recent ‘in drawing’ or ‘inward pull’ on the nipple or even a change in direction.
5. Changes in the skin over the breast, which feels thick, hard and like an ‘orange’ peel
6. Occasionally, small ‘knots’ or nodes may be felt in the armpit.


A mammogram is used to detect breast cancer. Early detection of the disease is the most effective way to treat the ailment but that doesn’t happen due to lack of awareness. Sadly, patients with advanced breast cancer end up being either exposed to aggressive treatment options like chemotherapy or surgery or have to be given palliative care to ease their suffering. If breast cancer is diagnosed and treated early the chances of cure and survival rates improve significantly, making it even more important to detect its presence. Here are 10 tips to detect breast cancer early.
According to the American Cancer Society’s guidelines for early detection of breast cancer:

1. A woman should undergo yearly mammograms starting at the age of 40. This practice should be continued for as long as the woman is healthy. They should get a clinical breast examination (CBE), approximately every 3 years for women in their 20s and 30s and every year for women in their 40s and over.
2. Women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and should report any breast changes promptly to their health care provider. Alternatively they could perform a breast self-exam (BSE) starting in their 20s.


The standard treatment methods include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. These methods have undergone vigorous trials over several decades and are the best forms of treatment. The proof of the same is the fantastic increase in survival in almost all cancers in the western nations.
Chemotherapy is the injection of drugs in saline, into the body. These drugs are programmed to kill rapidly multiplying cells. Radiation Therapy is subjecting a particular area (of cancer) in the body, with ‘ionizing rays’. These types of rays kill the dividing cells.
Radiation Therapy is subjecting a particular area (of cancer) in the body, with ‘ionizing rays’. These types of rays kill the dividing cells.
The main reason for side effects, especially in chemotherapy, is due to the fact that we cannot target only cancer cells, because they are like normal cells and there is no way of differentiating them. So while killing cancer cells, some normal cells also get affected and hence the severe side effects.
Do the breasts need to be removed to cure breast cancer?
Even though, some people believe that the only treatment for breast cancer is removal of breasts but that is not true. ‘In more than 70 percent women, we can very well do a breast conserving surgery (BCS)! Even if a tumor is large, we can give chemotherapy first, which will reduce the size of the tumor, and then a Breast Conservation Surgery can be done! The only important requisite of BCS is that, after surgery, radiation therapy is compulsory.’ said Dr. a renowned oncologist.

Refractive Surgery

Refractive eye surgery is any eye surgery used to improve the refractive state of the eye and decrease or eliminate dependency on glasses or contact lenses. This can include various methods of surgical remodeling of the cornea or cataract surgery. The most common methods today use excimer lasers to reshape the curvature of the cornea. Successful refractive eye surgery can reduce or cure common vision disorders such as myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism, as well as degenerative disorders like keratoconus.

Refractive surgery is a method for correcting or improving your vision. There are various surgical procedures for correcting or adjusting your eye's focusing ability by reshaping the cornea, or clear, round dome at the front of your eye. Other procedures involve implanting a lens inside your eye. The most widely performed type of refractive surgery is LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), where a laser is used to reshape the cornea

Short for laser in-situ keratomileusis, this laser eye surgery is used to correct vision in people who are nearsighted, farsighted, and/or have astigmatism. During LASIK surgery, vision is corrected by reshaping underlying corneal tissue so that it can properly focus light into the eye and onto the retina. LASIK eye surgery differs from others in that a flap is made in the outer layer of the cornea so that the underlying tissue can be accessed. LASIK may also be done with the addition of computer imaging called wavefront technology to create a detailed image of the cornea and guide for treatment.

Refractive surgery might be a good option for you if you:
  • Want to decrease your dependence on glasses or contact lenses;
  • Accept the inherent risks and potential side effects of the procedure;
  • Understand that you could still need glasses or contacts after the procedure to achieve your best vision;
  • Have an appropriate refractive error.

Congenital heart defect means higher chance of stroke

Adults born with heart defects have a greater chance of stroke, according to new research published in the journal Circulation.

People with congenital heart defects may have a stroke later in life.
congenital heart defect can be one of a wide range of conditions. Some of these can affect the person, even fatally, soon after birth; others do not show symptoms until later in adulthood.
Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the US, claiming nearly 129,000 lives every year, according to the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA).
Stroke can be hemorrhagic, resulting from a bleed in the brain, or ischemic, when a blood clot blocks a cerebral artery.
They analyzed stroke data on 29,638 patients with congenital heart defects, aged 18-64, and compared rates with those observed in the general population of Quebec, Canada.
Adults with a congenital heart defect had a 9-12 times higher risk of ischemic stroke before the age of 55, and the risk was 2-4 times higher in patients between the ages of 55-64. They also had a 5-6 times higher risk of hemorrhagic stroke before the age of 55, and a 2-3 times higher risk between the ages of 55-64.
Of those with congenital heart defects, 8.9% of men and 6.8% of women experienced at least one stroke before age 65. Heart failurediabetes and recent heart attacks were the strongest predictors of ischemic stroke in adults with heart defects.

Natural Ways to Protect your Joints

Your weight-bearing joints - spine, hips and knees - take the load of your whole body weight. You can reduce the impact on them with walking on grass rather than pavements and wearing shoes with supportive, shock-absorbing insoles. This cuts the impact on your joints, protecting them from wear and tear while still keeping them mobile.
Mobility is all
Never forget that stiffness begets stiffness. Keeping your joints mobile is key to reducing stiffness and pain. That can be easier said than done if every movement hurts. Low-impact bending and stretching - including cycling (for knees) and stretching exercises at home - keep discomfort to a minimum but prevent seizing up.
Strength is Balance!
Regular exercise helps more than just muscle strength and pain. It also helps improve balance, reducing the risk of falls
There's more to your Joints than your Joints
While osteoarthritis is common, there are lots of other causes of joint pain. Tough, non-stretchy bands called ligaments help keep your joints in place. Your knees are also supported by muscles which protect your joints from damage. You can't strengthen your ligaments, but you can certainly give your muscles a helping hand with regular aerobic exercise - the kind that makes you mildly out of puff. This can be particularly helpful in avoiding knee problems. The knee carries the whole weight of your body and is exposed to all sorts of strains every time you move your legs. Isometric exercises - lifting your leg with your knee straight, to prevent any strain on the joint - can let you exercise the muscles even if you've been told to avoid too much bending under pressure.
Swimming - your joints will thank you for it
Because water supports your joints, keeping them weightless, swimming is the perfect way to keep your joints mobile and build up muscle strength, which protects your joints from strain. It doesn't cut your risk of osteoporosis, or thinning of the bones, (for that you need weight-bearing exercise) but for every other aspect of health it ticks all the boxes!
Supplements - do they help?
My mother drank a disgusting concoction of cider vinegar and honey when I was a child, telling me as she grimaced that it was good for her joints. Sadly for her, there's no evidence that she was right - cider vinegar may be popular, but studies suggest it makes no difference at all to your joints. Fish liver oils have quite a lot of scientific studies showing they may reduce inflammation in stiffness and joint tenderness in the inflammatory joint condition rheumatoid arthritis, but the evidence in osteoarthritis is less strong.
Another popular complementary remedy is glucose, a naturally occurring 'building block' of cartilage. Studies have shown that it's as safe as 'placebo', and can provide a mild-to-moderate reduction in pain related to osteoarthritis. However, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has decided that the evidence isn't convincing enough for it to be offered on the NHS. It is available without prescription.
More recently, there have been promising results in studies on GOPO®, a compound isolated from rosehips. We don't know if all rose-hip preparations provide the same benefits. It's not available on the NHS but it may help reduce inflammation and increase mobility of your joints, whether or not you have osteoarthritis. The studies so far are small but it appears safe, which means that even if benefits are modest, they're likely to outweigh risks.
Gardening is Great - if you take precautions
Getting out into the garden in the sunshine can lift your mood and boost your vitamin D levels, guarding against osteoporosis. It's also great exercise and you can pick (and maybe eat) the healthy fruits of your labours! But many aches and pains are caused not by a single trauma but by repeated minor strains. To protect your joints:
  • Get up and stretch several times an hour if you're weeding
  • Use a cushion or wear knee protectors if you're weeding on your knees, to avoid housemaid's or clergyman's knee
  • Lift garden waste and other loads with knees bent and back slightly flexed but never twisting. Take more trips with small loads rather than straining your back with heavy loads
  • Think about how to protect your back when you get back to work after the Easter break. A large proportion of people suffering from back pain have their problems brought on, or made worse by, work-related issues. That's not just labourers lifting heavy objects every day - sitting hunched over a computer for hours on end can be every bit as bad.

Medimantra Test/Treatments Center in India

Making a decision requires you to compare tests/treatments that have been contrasted in research studies to see if one over another results in improved chances of good outcomes. In a sense, medical decision making is a competition. To assess the competition, you compare the chances of outcomes, or results from groups of people taking different options. The comparison is a simple subtraction in the amounts of outcomes that occur in each studied group.
Subtracting results in a difference that is either a benefit (if better for you) or a harm (if worse for you). For nearly all decisions, however, the test/treatment that is better for disease outcomes (benefit) is worse for complications (harm). Comparing, then, results in the following possibilities:
The chances of outcomes associated with the condition you have and the tests/treatments available will be the same for all options. In this case, chose the cheapest option.
The chance of outcomes associated with the condition you have will be less with one option. That option provides added benefit
The chance of a complication caused by the test/treatment that adds benefit for the disease outcomes will be greater (harm).
Since the test/treatment that is better for you in terms of the disease you have will be, simultaneously, worse for you in terms of complications caused by that test/treatment, a trade-off of benefit and harm is required.
Hence, the definition of “works” is that:
A test/treatment works when you feel there is more to gain from the greater chance of better disease associated outcomes than there would be to lose from suffering the complications caused by your chosen treatment.
So, medical-decision-making is a competition between options and there is always some good to be balanced against some bad.
The balance of good and bad from your perspective is what makes one treatment work over another.
