We don’t remember days, we remember moments
It’s always a delightful moment to see the smile on a patient’s face, when they conquer breast cancer.
With the increase in opportunistic screening of Breast Cancer in India, more and more impalpable breast lesions are being detected. Wire guided localisation is one method to surgically deal with these lesions.
This video highlights the operative steps of wire guided localization and also the use of a specimen mammogram.

Breast cancer treatment is a long drawn battle for the patient and her family and it is always a joyous moment when they finish their breast cancer treatment.
This special day when they finish their treatment, marks an important phase, when they transition from being a patient to a cancer conqueror/ survivor. In India, despite so many myths surrounding cancer treatment, it is good to see some ladies determined to fight the disease despite all odds. Hats off to their fighting spirit!!
Yesterday, we had the privilege of meeting the Delhi CM, Mr. Arvind Kejriwal, regarding the idea of conducting breast cancer screening in the upcoming ‘mohalla’ clinics in Delhi.
The AAP government is planning to launch 1100 mohalla clinics by the end of this year and a major thrust in these clinics will be early detection of cancers.
Mr. Kejriwal & Mr. Satyendra Jain analysed a novel breast cancer screening device, which has been manufactured by UE Lifesciences and they agreed to carry out a pilot project using this device in some of their mohalla clinics.
I was personally impressed to see the CM already aware of the burden of breast cancer in our country and I admire his vision to screen patients for this dreaded condition.
Delhi NCR’s pollution is increasing day by day and this is leading to a multitude of health problems among the population.
According to a report, yesterday was the most polluted day of the year and this is bound to get worse as the winters progress.
For a better and cleaner future, all of us have to make a sincere effort and it doesn’t need to be a giant leap. Even a small step towards greenery will go a long way in achieving this goal.
I saw this boot outside somebody’s’ house during my recent trip to New Zealand and was quite impressed by the idea. We also need to think out of the box to come up with more green solutions for our country and combat the rising pollution.
Go Green and Prevent Pollution!
