Breast cancer is the leading cause of death among women in India. Breast cancer is increasing rapidly not only in India but in women all over the world. Let us tell you that the feeling of a lump in the breasts or any kind of leakage from the nipple is the initial symptom of breast cancer. If cancer reaches stages 3-4, then surgery is the last option as a treatment. Not only this but sometimes there is also a risk of death if the situation worsens. But if breast cancer is detected at the right time and its treatment is started, then it can be easily cured. That's why let us tell you about the symptoms and treatment of breast cancer in women.
1. Symptoms of Breast Cancer Often women ignore the pain arising in the breast and are careless. Whereas this pain is not a normal pain but a pain arising due to the lump present in the breast. It is not that every time there is a pain in the lump in general, sometimes this pain can be felt only on touching. Therefore, if you feel pain or a lump in your breast, then definitely consult a doctor. Let us tell you that mammography is done to detect lumps in the breasts. Breast cancer can also be detected by mammography and it does not cost much to get mammography done. Experts believe that a woman of 30 to 35 years must have mammography once. The early symptoms of breast cancer are as follows - Lump in the breast - Increase in size of the breast over time - Abnormal enlargement of the breast - Swelling around the breasts - Reddened or bleeding nipples - Any bulge in the breast or unusual weight gain
2. Testing and Treatment It is necessary that every woman from the age of 30 should self-examine her breasts and the changes around them after menstruation. Apart from this, every woman from the age of 40 should get herself examined by a gynecologist once a year and in consultation with her breast X-ray or mammography should be done. This X-ray is called a mammogram. Small cancerous areas can be detected through mammograms. In this condition, there is no need to remove the entire breast in the treatment of cancer. Breast cancer patients detected at this stage can have successful treatment of 90 to 95 percent. The condition of removing the entire breast through operation comes only in the advanced stage. According to data, cases of breast cancer are seen more in women living in metros and cities. That's why it is very important that women after the age of 40 self-examine their breasts every month and consult a doctor immediately if anything goes wrong.
