What is breast cancer?
Breast cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the breast area. Cancer begins when cells start to grow out of control.
Breast cancer cells usually form a tumor that can often be seen on an X-ray or felt like a lump. Breast cancer occurs in most cases in women, but men are not exempt from contracting it.
The main treatments to fight breast cancer are:
- Surgery or surgical intervention.
In many cases, all three are combined to reduce recurrence.
Oncoplastic breast surgery
Oncoplastic surgery is an integral part of all breast cancer surgeries. Using an aesthetic approach to breast conservation or mastectomy greatly improves the range of options that can be offered to women with breast cancer and facilitates better outcomes.
Breast pain specialist
It is a very common and worrisome symptom for women that does not commonly have any serious background.
Breast lumps in both men and women raise concerns about breast cancer, although most of them are not cancer.
- Both men and women of all ages have normal breast tissue. This tissue responds to hormonal changes. Because of this, the bumps can come and go.
Lumps on the breasts can appear at any age:
- Babies of both sexes may have breast lumps at birth from their mothers’ estrogens. The lump will usually go away on its own as the estrogen disappears from the baby’s body.
- Young girls usually have a breast “lump” or “breast buds” that appear just before puberty begins. These bumps can be tender. They are common around the age of 9, but can appear as early as 6 years of age.
- Male adolescents may have lumps or enlarged breasts due to hormonal changes that occur in mid-puberty. Although this can be distressing for children, these lumps or bumps almost always disappear on their own within a few months.
Contact our specialist if you feel any “lump” in the breast.
Treatment of breast tumors
If you have detected a breast tumor, see your mastologist surgeon immediately, no matter your age, gender or absence of risk factors.
Should I get checked if I’m under 40 years old?
Yes. The care that a woman should have for herself should start from an early age. These recommendations should be transmitted to all the women we meet, as it will be the way to detect a problem as soon as possible, essential to treat it in advance.
18 years old
It is recommended that from 18 years of age women begin to perform breast self-examination, once a month after the end of their menstrual cycle.
25 years old
It is also important that all women over 25 years of age go to a breast specialist doctor for a medical check-up at least once a year, especially if they have pain or touch a “lump”.
40 years old
In general, mammography is not recommended in women under 40 years of age, in any case, if the doctor considers it necessary, he or she will request a breast ultrasound.
Treatment of breast abscesses
The abscess is created when the infection of the tissue becomes suppurative, causing acute inflammation and the consequent collection of purulent fluid.
Mammary dysplasia specialist
It is a benign situation in which certain changes occur in the breast that can cause discomfort and variations in breast palpation.
Treatment of breast fibroadenoma
It is the most common benign tumor of the breast. It is common in young patients. It is important that every breast tumor is evaluated by a specialist.
Treatment of breast infection
It manifests with moderate to severe pain, hypersensitivity, fever, reddish skin and increased temperature, including abscesses.
It is a symptom of suspected cancer. If you present it, go for a consultation with the specialist.
And what about cysts? Do they cause cancer?
Cysts are sacs of fluid that are frequently located in the breast, and although they are not usually touched, it is true that they can grow a lot. They generally do not cause problems, however it is very important to diagnose that within them there are no solid parts or some other alterations.
Surgery for breast cancer in Guadalajara
Breast cancer surgery is a key component of breast cancer treatment that involves removing the cancer with an operation. Breast cancer surgery can be used alone or in combination with other treatments, such as:
- Hormone therapy.
- Targeted therapy.
For people at very high risk of breast cancer, breast cancer surgery may be an option to reduce the risk of breast cancer in the future.
Breast cancer surgery includes different procedures, such as:
- Surgery to remove the entire breast (mastectomy).
- Surgery to remove part of the breast tissue (lumpectomy).
- Surgery to remove nearby lymph nodes.
- Surgery to rebuild a breast after a mastectomy.
The type of procedure that is right for you will depend on the size and stage of your cancer, your other treatment options, and your goals and preferences.
