If you are diagnosed with breast cancer, it takes time to come to terms with it. Don’t worry! Treatments are getting better all the time, and women have more treatment options than ever before. It is very crucial to choose the appropriate treatments and healthcare professionals.
Surgery is usually the first type of treatment for breast cancer. Surgical treatment options include mastectomy or breast conservation surgery. Breast conservation surgery, which has been performed increasingly over the last two decades, is a procedure that involves removing cancer and some normal tissue around it. When breast conservation surgery is used with radiotherapy, it has outcomes similar to those of mastectomy. Patients may also receive chemotherapy or hormonal therapy if there is a risk that cancer has spread to another part of the body.
Delivering individually tailored treatments for the best results is essential, as there are many types of breast cancer, and how it progresses varies widely.
Breast reconstruction, a surgery to rebuild breast shape, can be carried out immediately after the surgery or completed later. Many people opt for reconstruction surgery, as it can improve self-confidence and a person’s sense of well-being.
