Breast Cancer Treatment in India


Breast Cancer Treatment

With advancement in technology, breast cancer is no longer an incurable disease. With the latest technology available at best cancer hospitals in India, breast cancer can now be detected at very early stages and can be completely treated. 



The approach used for cancer treatment in India is multidisciplinary, which involves Surgical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Medical Oncology and rehabilitation after cancer surgery. The top cancer specialists in India use the latest international protocols for the treatment of cancer which includes the following depending upon the patient’s condition and requirements:

  • ·         Novalis Tx Radiosurgery
  • ·         Cyberknife
  • ·         Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
  • ·         Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)
  • ·         Stereotactic Radio surgery and Radiation Therapy(SRS,SRT)
  • ·         Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) 

There are various surgical techniques for the treatment of breast cancer depending on the location, size of the tumour, age of the patient and condition of the patient. 

The surgical technique used by our associate best cancer hospitals inIndia is breast conservation surgery, which means the surgeon aims to remove only the lump in the breast and save the normal breast tissue as much as possible. This is done through the technique of wide excision of breast lump with removal of axillary nodes. After the surgery, the patient has almost a normal breast. 

In case the cancer is found in more than one part of the breast or the size of the breast is so small that wide excision of lump can result in the deformity of breast, our top cancer specialists use Modified Radical Mastectomy technique of surgery. This technique entails removal of the entire breast and the lymph nodes.   

For those women who are not happy with the idea of losing their breast and are candidates for immediate breast reconstruction can choose this option. A plastic surgeon performs the surgery for reconstructing the breast. The surgery for breast cancer treatment along with reconstruction is called Modified Radical Mastectomy with reconstruction. The plastic surgeon uses the patient’s own tissues to create a breast which looks like the other breast. An implant can also be sometimes used for construction of the other breast. 

Only breast surgery may not be sufficient sometimes to kill all the cancer cells. Chemotherapy may also be required in some patients to kill the cancer cells. Our medical oncologists are among the best cancer specialists in India and know how best to plan the treatment for the best result. We have the latest medicines and drugs available in the world for the effective cancer treatment at these best cancer hospitals in India. Our experts also advise giving radiation therapy after a breast conservation surgery or even mastectomy if required, so that cancer cells are fully destroyed from the body. 

The radiation therapy involves using very high energy X-rays to destroy the cancer cells that still may be present in the affected breast or nearby lymph node. This procedure is painless and the patient does not feel anything when the treatment is going on. Our cancer hospitals in India also offer hormonal treatment if required by the patient.
