Dr Geetha Nagasree is leading the surgical oncology department at Care Hospitals. She possesses immense experience and expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. She also counsels patients regarding the increase in the number of breast cancer cases and preventive measures. The following information is a step forward in educating women regarding the rising incidences of breast and ovarian cancers in India.

Majority of women having breast cancer do not have any signs and symptoms in the initial stages of breast cancer – owing to which they tend to ignore doing breast-self-examination.

In many cases, most of the women don’t know how to do breast-self-examination. If they don’t do breast self-examination, they simply remain unaware of their breast cancer; and therefore, they don’t go for clinical examination (examination by a gynaec-oncologist) and screening at a breast cancer hospital in Hyderabad.

The reason why women are not going for screening:

  • In the early stages, breast cancer does not cause any symptoms
  • Symptoms if manifest may go unnoticed
  • Women don’t do breast-self examination
  • Women tend to ignore doing breast-self examination
  • Some women don’t know how to do breast self-examination
  • Women don’t go for clinical breast examination

Owing to this reason, Breast cancer is being detected in the third and fourth stages. This is quite common in India. Late diagnosis is leading to ineffective treatment and poor survival rates.

The solution
Breast self-examination following by clinical breast examination and breast cancer screening (tests for detecting breast cancer) detect breast cancer early. Therefore, if you are a woman who suspects that there is something abnormal after doing breast-self-examination – you must approach a gynaeconcologist or a lady oncologist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

Women who are at an increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer due to a strong family history must start screening early. The screening for such women may involve genetic testing and MRI.

Breast cancers that are known to occur in close family members, develop at an early age and tend to be aggressive.

Genetic screening and other molecular tests help in predicting and preventing aggressive breast cancers with a high degree of accuracy.

Breast cancers have the highest cure rates if diagnosed in the early stages. Simple tests like mammogram done at appropriate times can detect breast cancers early for a potential cure.
